StJohn Miall
Principal, Keep Evolving

StJohn Miall has been working in the field of business and personal transformation for more than 30 years. Through coaching, facilitating and designing development programs he has supported thousands of individuals to discover more expansive and creative ways of working and being – ways that provide fulfillment and personal meaning and which achieve results that contribute to making the world a better place.

 

StJohn is recognised for his capacity to see through complex issues and bring clarity out of confusion.  As a presenter he is empathetic and has a commitment to making the teaching space both fun and transformational.

“Deep down, I think we all want to live a good and meaningful life. But what does the ‘good’ in ‘good life’ actually mean?

The answer will be different for all of us, but after 30 years supporting people to seek their own unique answers, some common themes have become evident.

The first is that each person will continue to search until they find meaning, or a sense of purpose, for their lives – to find their own niche and a path for their passion, for their energy and their particular skills and qualities. They need to find their own way to contribute to making the world a better place and making a difference in the lives of those they touch.

This often changes over time as they grow and develop themselves. Just as life becomes sorted and understood and mapped out, it morphs into something different… this is quite normal, but difficult to come to terms with.

Then they need to develop some emotional intelligence skills so they can manage the complexities of their family and work relationships so they can evolve from a source of conflict, frustration and difficulty into a rich and rewarding part of their lives.

They also need to come to terms with the many facets of their diamond like personality, some of which shine brightly from the beginning, but many need to be cut and polished, and understood in a way that allows them to be managed to effectively achieve the chosen goals in life.  In particular, this requires becoming familiar with the 4 Dimensions of their Inner World - the Physical, the Mental, The Emotional and the Spiritual aspects of their being.

Finally, there is the realisation that this is a life-long journey that goes through many stages, each with its unique set of challenges and opportunities.

This is a journey that I have been making and continue to make for myself.  I have been a student of the human process and have been fortunate enough to pass on to thousands of others what I have learned from many wise teachers along the way about how to understand this great adventurous journey called Life.

I have fallen into a fair few potholes as I have travelled along in my life, and have a strong sense of gratitude for those who were there to show me the way out and point me in the right direction again.   The least I can do is provide that same service to others travelling a similar path.”

Jo Beat
Marketing, Product, Segment & Technology Professional 

I have had the privilege of being a student, then a supporter in many of the courses StJohn leads. Through his interpersonal skills, he brings heart and warmth. When I was attending these courses, I was managing a medium size team of people and the results of my team improved remarkably. I give full credit to StJohn who taught me (among other things) that empowering people is the secret to success in the corporate world.

Rick Giddins
State Manager at Retirement Transitions

StJohn is a professional facilitator who inspires and educates people with his depth of knowledge and wisdom honed over many decades working with people from all walks of life. As a colleague, I learn so much from his teaching, his clear leadership, and his incredible intelligence. I watch in awe as he leads participants to the windows of their own awareness and catch glimpses of the possibilities available to them in life. I've witnessed tremendous transformations as people open their minds and their hearts under StJohn's warm and generous leadership and care... I would recommend people to his Keep Evolving programs without hesitation. Singe is authentic and just a great person all round.
