✔️Listen and ask questions to really understand their viewpoints
✔️Foster a safe place to learn, grow and fail forward
✔️Help team members connect their work to what they find meaningful

My name is John Ramstead and I’m a former Navy combat fighter pilot, serial entrepreneur, and survivor of a near-fatal accident. Flying F-14s taught me that if you veer off course just one degree you can end up hundreds of miles away from your destination. To successfully accomplish your mission you need two things; Your true north and a flight plan. My passion is being your wingman to guide you through the exact process to create the life you know you are meant to live.
