John Buchanan, Taking One Of Australia’s Best Cricket Teams To A Decade Of Domination.
John Buchanan is regarded as one of the most successful international sports coaches in history, having guided the Australian Men’s Cricket Team to unparalleled success from 1999 to 2007. In particular, the 2002 national team was the Laureus sports team of the world.
“From my background, I have translated the deep insights of peak performance on the sports field into winning behaviours and actions in the business arena. My step-by-step methodology has been carefully designed to create and maintain world class performance and help businesses, organisations and teams find their winning model. It can all be found in my What’s your Everest program.”

Your willingness to share your experiences and wisdom so openly with the group was invaluable and greatly appreciated.
On behalf of the group, I would like to wish you all the very best on your upcoming challenge of coaching.
I look forward to seeing you again in the future.”

Your facilitation of our Strategy Day earlier this year was engaging and inspiring. The key concepts and ideas you presented on high performing teams have made a difference in the way our Principals interact with each other and their teams. We look forward to engaging further with you and continuing to develop our business. Thank you, John

The first year of running a new business is challenging. For me and my business partner, Michael Batch, we had to juggle many things including growing our new business, developing our leadership skills, and creating the right environment for our new team. In Batch Mewing’s second year as a growing business, we knew we couldn’t do it all on our own. This is where Buchanan Coaching came along. John facilitated a full-day workshop for our whole team and gave us some valuable tools that helped to shape us into the high performance team we are today. Six years on, we still benefit from John’s wisdom and carry it with us into both our work and day-to-day lives. Even now, his messages about finding “your Everest”, and his experiences coaching the Australian cricket team, resonate strongly with our continuous striving to make Batch Mewing the best it can be.

John has consistently delivered as a genuine coach, mentor, sounding board and friend in the many years I’ve had the pleasure of knowing him. With his vast experience across sporting and commercial successes, coupled with his patience teaching ways, sets him apart from other so-called professionals. I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend John to any leader who seeks to build their capabilities to get ahead in life.
I’ve known and seen John ‘in action’ in a range of coaching delivery modes with businesspeople since 2007. He has a rare and valuable approach to thinking, sharing insights, and enabling people to become their own best coach in the pursuit of their vision – their personal or team Everests. I am fortunate to have been one of those people, with John discussing and helping me over many years to refine my approach to peak performance.

Hear what top CEOs and company leaders are saying about
the impact of John’s coaching, speaking and teaching services.
“John Buchanan is unequivocally stupendous with an efficacy and proficiency which I describe as phenomenally splendid. The last 6 months of coaching from John has been terrific in enhancing my professional deportment and adeptness. From my McDonald’s high school job to now I have never performed this efficiently, strategically and astutely in a 6 month period ever in my life. John has inculcated an aplomb which I would have previously deemed unattainable. Thank you John for everything, particularly the professional enhancement and strategic enlightenment.”
Dr Ashnil Murray March 2022
“I have seen many speakers over the years and this was one of the best leadership sessions I have ever seen. So much great content, such interesting stories and real take home value for all of us that manage teams.”
General Manager TRET
“The quality of his material and the professionalism of his delivery resulted in delegates rating John as our best ever closing speaker.”

“John’s vast experience developing and managing various teams over his career added great value to our mining operations leadership program.
John’s value-add was his ability to provide considered advice to all levels of our mining business, from General Managers setting the strategy and master plans, to middle management and frontline leaders skill building and application. Another of John’s skills was his ability to get us to take an
honest stock of our individual and team strengths and weaknesses, to recognise how these relate to our “peak performance” and how to then create a successful operating model from these insights.
I think the best evidence that you have run a successful coaching program in your business is when years later your employees are still talking about how much value they got out of the program and the tools developed during that time haven’t been replaced by another program, but instead have been continually improved. That’s certainly been our experience from John’s work with us.
I encourage anyone considering a high performance coaching program or business review to discuss their goals with John, I am confident he will add value to your business.”

Thank you for joining us and presenting to our Business Development team at Binna Burra last week.
Apart from having the opportunity to meet you personally, our team gained valuable knowledge from your presentation. In particular, you will be pleased to know that we have all taken on board your message of ‘high performing’ as opposed to ‘high performance’, and this phrase became a mantra for many of our conference sessions. I was not sure that all of our guys would connect with the cricket background but was surprised how often the phrase “As John said…” started so many comments back to me for the rest of the week.
Your quote from Sun Tzu’s ‘Art of War’ also resonated with our team and reinforced the importance of setting a winning strategy.
Your input was the initiating catalyst for so much valuable work during the week. I sincerely hope that we have the opportunity to meet again.”
CEO | Mineral Technologies
“When you first became head coach of the Australian team you organised for me to come and chat during a session of the Adelaide test, then took me through to see the data collection process. The visit was actually really useful as it encouraged me to add something to our pre-Olympic preparations that year (which resulted in the Gold Medal in Sydney) to create specific scouting DVDs on all the top 20 opponents in the world.”
Coach Education and Development, Manager | Swimming Australia
I loved John’s discussion re: if it’s not broken don’t fix it, and his recommendation that if it’s not broken, break it. This has always been my theory i.e. one can always make things better. I’ve been challenged for this approach and was encouraged by John to keep striving for improvement. Thank you.
