I engaged John for 12 months as a mentor and counselor to assist me with staying whole, healthy and compassionate through the, at times, painful deterioration and eventual death of my father earlier this year. John taught me how to relax and breathe from my center. Under his guidance, I was able to release aspects of inter-generational trauma from my father’s heritage, personality and traits. John helped me learn to let go of judgment and anger around my father so that the words “I love you” could finally be spoken, received and felt in Dad’s final weeks. John helped me let go so that Dad could let go and go peacefully.

I called on John when I needed answers quickly. Although I had more than 25 years of experience of running successful businesses, leading my current startup venture had put me well beyond my comfort zone. I needed some new skills and renewed confidence. John was welcoming and friendly. With his help, we assessed many areas of my business and personal life to help me grow. 

John was very comfortable operating at a level beyond giving advice. Through his openness and availability, I learned from and drew new value from my own experiences. I have no hesitation recommending John and as always, I look forward to working with John again in the future.

John provides you with the understanding and tools to make informed decisions about your future, your key relationships and the future of your business. He guides you through a process of diagnosis and prompting to focus on solutions to problems that you have put in the too hard basket or are preventing your life and your business from developing. We would without qualification recommend John as an outstanding personal and business mentor.

Paul and Lynne Thompson - Directors, Colonial Meatpackers

I realized we had plenty of options going forward and I needed some help in evaluating them and choosing the right ones. I found working with Hale Consulting Group amazing. They are so grounded and able to quickly and powerfully choose the right pathway out of many and offer the most suitable and sustainable strategies to make sure we arrive successfully.

Hale Consulting Group cut quickly through to the core issues and then supported me in establishing simple yet valuable habits to manage my life more effectively, habits that I continue to use in my daily life years later. Their insight and skills provide solutions for personal as well as corporate growth. They operate at maximum integrity and come highly recommended.

Christopher Dean - Founder, Thursday Plantation

I called on John at a time when I really needed the motivation to shift things quickly. John’s diagnosis and advice was spot on and he provided me with some excellent resources to refocus and take charge of my life. I recommend John to anyone as a top-shelf executive coach and confidant.

Chris Condon - Chairman, Condon Group

I am grateful to have worked with John Hale from Hale Consulting Group. John conducted a careful examination of our business moving forward and provided sound and balanced advice for our next stage of growth. I have no hesitation in recommending John as a highly knowledgable and empowering mentor for any growing business. 

Charlotte Battle - Owner, Total Balance Health & Fitness

The Chairman of our Board was very supportive of engaging John as a leadership mentor to extend me. I believe that you never stop learning and John has challenged my boundaries and expanded my outlook at both a business and personal level. His incredible understanding of organizations, people and human nature will change your life. I am truly blessed to have him as a mentor and coach.

Glen Eagles - General Manager, Hurford Group

We called on Hale Consulting Group when our company was struggling with its direction. They gave us a clear overview and proposition of options that was invaluable in leading us to make brave decisions and actions. Five years later our Company is a leader in its field and has just won the NSW Telstra Business Award as best business in its category.

Will Evans - Founder, The Purist Company

When I had the privilege to meet John Hale, four years before I became a client, I was deeply impressed by his healing generosity, amazing intuition and grounded tranquillity; So when the ‘chips were down’ and the time came to prepare for and deliver on the most precious project of my life, my decision to call on John was automatic. And I never regretted it. I recommend John to anyone as a world-class therapist and mentor.

Nathalie Belle-Larant - Founder, NBL Solutions Pty Ltd

John created space for me to feel safe, adventurous and authentic. I joined John's men's circle 6 years ago, having just graduated from an 18-year relationship. I was an anxious and reluctant man, fearful of life and love. With John's business mentoring and life coaching programs, I have created a new life, full of love and integrity with business, physical, mental and spiritual growth. John's knowledge and passion for life and love was the stimulus I needed to grow again. I feel blessed to know John and to continue my work with him.

Hugh McCaffery - Owner, Cleanskincare

I had lots of ideas and not enough focus, which is great as a new photographer but not as a business owner. John asked me the right questions at the right time to move my business from existence and survival to growing success. Around 85% of all new ventures fail and thanks to John, I am not one of them and I am now riding wave after wave of success.

Craig Parry - Surf & Oceanography Photographer, Craig Parry Photography

Hale Consulting Group's lateral and clear thinking has been of immense help in those times when I have felt backed into a corner. Our company and management have benefited enormously both financially and personally due to their creativity, commitment and expertise.

Terry Pitt - Managing Director, Byron Bay Taxis & Limosines

In my first two years working with John, I have grown Nickel Energy by over 150%. John made sure I set goals that were right for me. He helped me navigate the future at multiple levels, he delivered the skills and awareness my management team needed and found me the key senior management personnel I needed. John has tremendous wisdom, expertise and skill and his level of integrity is second to none.

Nick Lake - Founder, Nickel Energy

John asked me some tough questions that needed to be answered. His goal was not to undermine us, but make us successful. He concentrated less on the things we do well, and more on the things we must never do badly. He helped us find the opportunities where we had and could build unfair advantages.
