John Kolm is CEO of an international workplace training firm, an innovator of 21st century team retreats, a best-selling author, and a former intelligence officer. Since 1996, his combined expertise in team dynamics, psychology, math and intelligence has led his company, Team Results, to become the leader in team productivity programs on four continents. Kolm developed an original approach to increase and sustain team productivity, and an innovative tool to measure the results for up to a 60% increase in productivity.
Kolm worked in the Australian intelligence community from 1983 till 1993, running missions in the field and specializing in work with U.S. agencies. He left the federal public service at SES level in 1995 as operations director of Australia’s FDA. In 1996 he founded Team Results with ex-fighter pilot Peter Ring, originally so that they could both advance their knowledge about what worked and what did not work with people and teams. Under Kolm’s direction, Team Results has rapidly grown. Kolm is best known for achieving remarkable productivity results with work teams, and believes that happiness at work is not only possible, but essential. His always original, sometimes unusual and amazingly successful programs are well known in the top ranks of business and government across the U.S. and around the globe.
