“HURDLE adversity. AMPUTATE fear. EMBRACE a championship mindset to WIN life’s medals.” —John Register
John Register is a two-time Paralympian, Paralympic Games Silver Medalist, Persian Gulf War veteran, and TEDx Motivational Speaker. He embraced a “new normal” in becoming an amputee following a misstep over a hurdle while training for the 1996 Olympic Games.
An Oak Park, Ill. native, John discovered how to “amputate his fear of disability” and founded the US Olympic Committee Military Sport Program in the early 2000s.
He has launched a book titled, 10 Stories to Impact Any Leader: Journal Your Way to Leadership Success, as business leaders return to work with their staff amid stressful circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic and the recent unrest in our cities.
Register teaches others through his “Hurdling Adversity” speeches and podcasts to “amputate their fear and embrace their new normal.” He finds that “it is the personal stories that inspire teams more profoundly with greater impact.”
