Meet John M. Collins

“Clients come to me when they want their intentions to overpower their circumstances.”

About John

John M. Collins is a professional leadership coach, author, facilitator, and speaker specializing in working with professionals and leaders in authoritative, high-expertise occupations. A certified Gallup Strengths Coach, John started his private practice in 2013 after an award-winning 20-year career in forensic science. As a member of the forensic investigation team in the Atlanta serial bombings, which included the bombing of the 1996 Olympics, John played a crucial role in the eventual identification of the perpetrator – and he experienced what life was like in one of the most high-pressure, high-stress scenarios imaginable.

“John is about the material he is teaching, and it makes me more passionate about it too.”
