In everything I do, I challenge the status quo of the attitudes, causes, and effect of depression on leadership, leading me to coach leaders to heal themselves and their teams. - John Panigas
As a father, partner, and business leader. John has spent the better part of 58 years struggling with depression. Pushing through the struggle, he and his team managed to build a nationally recognized and award winning retail construction business. After leaving the business, John embarked on a successful and very fulfilling consulting, peer group leading, and leadership coaching career. Being the father to Michael, Bianca, and Alexander has been the most satisfying part of his life. With the addition of four grandchildren life has become even more exciting. Meeting Roxie, the love of life, has enhanced his life tremendously.
His book titled: “Crazy, Who Me?” My Journey as a Leader Overcoming Depression is the culmination of a life filled with success and failure while coping with mental illness and ultimately coming out on the other side happy and authentic.
John has developed a methodology to overcome depression presented in a workshop titled: R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Understanding and Overcoming Depression.
