We had the good fortune of connecting with Wyn Morgan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Wyn, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s you’re definition for success?
“Is life more fun?” That’s it. The traditional measures for success, are in my opinion, often misguided and almost always too narrow. While I do look at my own business numbers, year on year – profit, revenue and so on; they are only a reflection of the impact my work has on my clients. The numbers are the output. The inputs are what matters. The inputs in my business really come from the degree to which my client’s lives and their own business are transformed. My own role in that comes down to one thing. Presence. The degree to which I am present to them, moment by moment. in every interaction. And the beautiful thing about presence is that when I am present to them (my clients) or present to anything else I have at hand (a business proposal, an e-mail etc), life is always more satisfying, joyful and more fun.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Having delivered training and coaching to organizations and private individuals for over 20 years, I’ve constantly challenged myself, my methods and my understanding of what works (and doesn’t work!) in delivering significant and lasting change to people and their results. My vision is that engaging me and my business to work with them will be recognized as the best decision they ever made. I’ve dedicated many years learning to understand what makes human beings do what they do, what makes them change, what makes them good one day and average the next, what makes a new skill ‘stick’ and a human’s ability to deploy these skills.
This understanding is what makes my business stand out in making the difference organisations and people are looking for.
We always start with client’s own questions and challenges, spend time to really understand them and build solutions and programs with them, along with ways to embed the change they want or need.
I’ve always prided myself on delivering quick and significant Return on Investment (typically 10-45 times R.o.I. from corporate training programs within 3 months). It became noticeable the past 10 years or so that the reason for anyone’s change and the results that followed had little to do with a ‘new skill’ and was always down to a shift in a person’s thinking about themselves, their work or their life. Now, we focus our attention there – the hidden variable behind what makes us all tick and be at our best. It’s often a case of ‘performance by subtraction’ rather than addition.
While classic training and coaching is all about providing information and new tools; what always shifts the needle in people are insights and realizations. We are in the insights and realizations game. A game that brings more joy and success in clients than I would have thought possible when I started out 15 years ago!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
In LA, my favourite areas are close to the coast. From Venice beach through Santa Monica and to Malibu, I love simply hanging out in the many coffee shops, meeting friends and clients for brunch. The lobby and patio area of the Fairmont in Santa Monica is a favourite haunt – whether for meeting coaching clients for sessions or a larger gathering with friends. Their fish tacos alone are worth a visit! More inland, I could spend day after day at the Getty, Huntington Gardens and the Griffith Observatory. When it comes to dinner, Mastros in Beverly Hills always hits the spot, as does Hillstone in Santa Monica
