    Key SWA Insights / Approach

     

    You engage people by being interested, not trying to be interesting

    Your value depends primarily on usefulness – not qualifications, experience, skills or technology. Not even nice comments about you!

    Self-worth unleashes new energy and transforms how you build trust / credibility with people

    A clear identity enables you to engage supporters as ambassadors, which reduces your cost of sale by getting others to tell your story

    Services for Independents and Entrepreneurs

    A deep sense of self-worth is a rich foundation for a strong professional identity, which in turn informs your career- (and business-) choices and engages others in both leadership and professional settings.

    John Niland is best known as a professional speaker, as well as being a coach, author and regular guest lecturer at universities and professional associations. Based in London and Lisbon, John is passionate about the power of self-worth in work: encouraging professionals to build a strong professional identity as an anchor in today’s turbulent world.

    In 2016, a series of personal events led him to write “The Self-Worth Safari”, a book and program to ignite self-worth in individuals and transform their careers, sales, confidence, and personal lives. In 2018, he established The Self-Worth Academy, a global network of professionals passionate about promoting self-worth (and self-awareness) as a foundation for life and work.

    John’s previous books include “Hidden Value”, “100 Tips to Find More Time”, “Opportunity Conversations” and “The Courage to Ask” (co-authored with Kate Daly). He is a co-founder of the European Forum of Independent Professionals and previous CEO of Education for the Children, which works with families in Guatemala to break the cycle of poverty. He divides his time between Lisbon, Portugal, and London, England.

    I had the absolute pleasure of working with John. He assisted me in understanding my self worth as it relates to my intuition development coaching business and the value I bring to the world and my clients. His content has translated directly to how I interact and coach my clientele. A person’s self worth is directly related to their ability to trust their intuition and understand there are no hurdles to opening themselves up to divine guidance. You are worthy of this amazing gift just by being you.
