Jefferson Cann

Jefferson Cann

Jefferson’s primary aim as an international coach, facilitator and speaker is the development of high-performance leadership behaviours  that enable the liberation of human potential and the fulfilment of the individual, their teams and their companies.

Following a successful, 25-year, international, career in pharmaceuticals, he has been delivering Leadership Performance Coaching at board level and below across all sectors across the world, and has developed high-level expertise in personal, team and cultural leadership development.

Jefferson believes that all leadership begins with how we lead ourselves – only when we can do that can we truly lead others and organisations.  This  requires the integration of the individual’s mental, emotional, spiritual and physical dimensions.
