Join us for the Anatomy of Leadership podcast where we welcome our inaugural guest, John Locke, an esteemed Executive Coach at Forvis and a dear friend.  In this vibrant discussion, we explore John's impressive contributions to the coaching world, including his pioneering role in developing an internal executive coaching practice at a top accounting firm.



Locke's expertise extends to being a co-founder of the International Coach Federation's Western North Carolina subchapter and holding multiple coaching certifications that speak to his commitment to fostering leadership and personal growth.


In this conversation, John Locke discusses the concept of self-mastery and the importance of the energy pyramid which illuminates the path to achieving our highest potential, intertwining physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual disciplines—a holistic approach to life and leadership.  Locke emphasizes the significance of community and connection in maintaining a healthy and fulfilling life.


Locke suggests that individuals reengage with important relationships, refuel their bodies through proper nutrition and exercise, and prioritize recovery, including quality sleep.  Locke concludes by expressing the importance of gratitude and encouraging listeners to make intentional changes for personal growth and the benefit of those around them.


Key Takeaways:

  • Develop yourself from the top down, starting with your spiritual purpose and focusing on mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
  • Community and connection are essential for a healthy and fulfilling life.
  • Reengage with important relationships, refuel your body through proper nutrition and exercise, and prioritize recovery, including quality sleep.
