The Team Results Masterclass

The Team Results Masterclass is a 2½-day GSA-listed leadership masterclass aimed at people with management responsibilities in government and business. The Masterclass is similar to the Harvard summer classes in terms of the learning and networking benefits, but is much faster and far less expensive.

Key benefits include:

  • Professional preferment because you have received high-end training;

  • Professional friendships that give you lasting advantages in your career;

  • A level of self-knowledge that is the first thing senior people look for when deciding whom to promote; and

  • If you are sending someone (rather than going yourself), a place to send really high-potential people who need and deserve high-end development.

Most participants are at the mid- to senior management level, but anyone who leads people will benefit. This is not a standard training program, but an intensive masterclass for working leaders, compressed into a single 2½-day program including two overnights. It is run by Team Results USA, the company which trains leadership teams for IBM, Pfizer, Toyota, the State Department, DHS, the FDA and many others. Graduates will emerge with advanced professional development aimed at furthering their careers in the leadership of people and their own membership of senior leadership teams. Programs of this type have been utilized by top-100 companies and peak government organizations for years, always at significant expense. The Meadowkirk Masterclass makes it possible for smaller organizations and organizations with limited budget to secure the same benefits for selected leaders at minimal cost.

Speaker and Presenter Information

CEO John Kolm is an innovator of 21st century team productivity programs, a best-selling author, and a former intelligence officer.


Originally from Australia, John formed Team Results in 1996 with retired business partner and decorated veteran Peter Ring as the end result of an experiment that began in 1993. Driven by frustration with the team development options then available to business and government, and with encouragement from early clients, they applied their academic training and practical leadership experience to build the unique approach to team productivity improvement that eventually became Team Results. The company grew rapidly, expanded to a wholly US-owned branch in the United States in 2005, and now operates as a very successful business in both hemispheres.


In 2004 John and Peter wrote the global bestseller “Crocodile Charlie and the Holy Grail” (Available here at, consolidating ten years of work with peak clients into a compelling story about team productivity, leadership in business and government, and happiness at work. The book has been re-published in seven languages and fourteen countries, and a sequel is in the works. John is also the author of numerous articles and papers on team dynamics in the modern workplace.


John is qualified in Psychology from the University of Melbourne, and in mathematics and statistics from the U.S. National Cryptologic School, where he also taught on the faculty.
