ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Christo Norden-Powers is a former trial lawyer who developed an interest in human performance and meditation in the 1970's. In 1984 Christo trained and coached 15 Australian Olympic athletes, including medallists Gary Honey and Debbie Flintoff-King, in how to generate and maintain peak performance states using both Eastern and Western techniques. His work then quickly spread to companies that were interested in developing peak performance in their people, and soon after to the development of corporate cultures that generate and support sustained high performance. Christo left the legal profession in 1985 to pursue his interest in transforming companies. In the period 1985 - 1987 Christo and colleagues designed and implemented one of the largest corporate cultural change projects in the southern hemisphere. The team trained 14,000 people during those years in a hands-on change process that ultimately led Christo in the early 90's to develop the powerful and highly effective MasterProcess (coaching and facilitaton process)and Change MasterProcess programs.
