Warren Kennaugh Show Notes

Warren Kennaugh wasn’t totally unhappy working in the corporate world. But Warren wanted to do more of the things he loved. That’s when Warren decided to strike out on his own. But after a year in business, he was not able to buy an island and a Maserati. That’s when he found out it was going to take much more effort and time to make it. Listen to Warren tell his story and what he discovered that might help you move onward and upward faster.

Warren Kennaugh was born and raised in Sydney Australia. One of two boys and as a youth he loved pulling things apart.

His first degree was in Mechanical Engineering where he specialized in the construction and repair of heavy earth moving equipment. Having the need for more people contact (very un-engineer like) he secured a sales position in the banking and finance industry where he successfully rose through the ranks over 9 years. Just when he was positioned to lead the banks first ever national coaching practice the organization restructured and Warren saw it as his opportunity to strike out on his own.

Since that fateful day in 1996 he has built his own consultancy firm focusing on the human behavior of peak performance. Warren has worked with over 70 blue chips large corporations and advised over 300 senior managers and elite teams.

Warren’s expertise in the area of developing high performance has seen him take interim positions as Head of Sales Effectiveness for a major bank and the Director of Coaching & Facilitation for Melbourne Business School.

In 2006, Warren was asked to work with the Australia Rugby Union in preparing the team for the Rugby World Cup for the 2007 and 2011 campaigns. His success on that project has since had him working at the highest levels in world rugby, world cricket, PGA golf, rugby league and preparing the Australian Equestrian Team for the Rio Olympics.

Warren’s unique approach focuses on the evidence that we all operate from a predictable pattern of behavior that leads to success or failure in the things which are trying to achieve. Warren’s work enables an individual or team to easily identify the dynamics which limit their success which permits behavioral changes allowing them to achieve their goals.

Warren currently lives in Sydney with his wife and daughter and has a passion of old style film photography and is madly working away on his second book.
