As Founder and CEO of a technology consulting firm run by predominantly technical people, we frequently excel at delivering solutions.  However, the magic of delivery must be enhanced by nurturing client relationships and raising and reinforcing internal leadership.  This requires transitioning a more left-brained team into one with increased emotional intelligence.  Doing so is no easy task.
Joel Landi’s approach to bridging this gap is both intuitive and highly practical.  Joel’s ability to develop emotional intelligence with our engineers and managers has been superb.  Through a process of guided examination and insightful conversation, his use of industry standard content and a clear process has produced visible change in our company culture.

With Joel’s collaboration, our engineers are communicating better, our teams are bonding, and work has less drama and more joy.    

I would highly recommend Joel to any manager, director or executive who is interested in using  social & emotional intelligence as a means to improve internal and external collaboration and relationships.

Joel & I quickly became friends and thinking partners as we discussed solutions for high stakes business relationships that had gone south.  Joel’s ability to create a position of strength in compromised and potentially damaging business interactions is superb.   He was also able to speak into very personal matters with clarity & insight without being judgmental.     He is a highly valuable source of wisdom, a secret weapon, and a tactical ally in creating diplomacy in sticky situations.

One of Joel’s key strengths is his diverse background, which enables him to rapidly connect and relate with people. This was certainly the case with me and he wasted no time getting our relationship to a level where he was able to offer on-point thoughts on all aspects of my personal and professional life. The accuracy of his insights and his ability to call me out on my own” stories” rapidly escalated each session. He also purposefully created a structure for my program that worked with my style of learning. This greatly improved my ability to make and sustain change. I highly recommend Joel Landi.

There is a lot of positive buzz surrounding Joel Landi and his company, The Performance Group — all rightly earned. I experienced his life-changing approach first-hand on a racetrack, surrounded by other high achieving, like-minded professionals.  At 6’7”, 265 pounds, hurdle number one was just fitting into the Formula 1 car!  In his approach, Joel links your performance to bioscience and real-time data to show you what you are doing and how to improve.  In that “aha” moment, I went from the guy who finished last to competing with the veterans at the top of the lap time standings.  Joel made that experience and transformation possible. Joel is that dynamic. His methods are that powerful.  Don’t miss it.

I hired The Performance Group to take my real estate company to the next level.  Joel’s coaching and insight provided a clear, strategic roadmap that helped me remove personal mental obstacles where I now serve 30% more clients and with twice the customer attention and service, becoming all that I can be!  He was also able to create success in targeted areas of my personal and family life.   My company is now flourishing.  Joel and TPG exceeded my expectations.  I am indebted to his wisdom and counsel.  I highly recommend Joel and his company to anyone who wants to take their company (or themselves) to the next level of performance and achievement.”

I have known Joel for over 10 years and he has been instrumental in helping me balance my professional and personal life.  During a particularly difficult period in my life he helped me identify deeper patterns that were obstructing my thinking and holding me back.  Joel “thinks outside of the box” and is not afraid of conflict for the sake of progress.  He has a gift for drawing people out, helping them confront their fears, and realizing their potential.  In an age where men are struggling to balance their careers and families, Joel has helped me to evaluate what really matters and make decisions to prioritize and simplify my life.”

After a devastating breakup of a 13 year marriage, I was left feeling despondent and debilitated about believing I could never have a love relationship again.  Joel’s ability to restore confidence and instill emotional intelligence in a safe environment helped me to believe in myself again.   I am now married to an amazing woman and have never been happier.
