The single biggest competitive advantage in the workplace today is training one’s attention on what matters most.
And it all begins with a pause. It’s that simple, it’s just not easy.
Today’s leaders and their teams are shaped in the time-crunched reality of marketplace opportunities, workplace experiences, and personal life choices—all evolving out of an intricate network of potentially sticky personal relationships.
To pause, to step into that momentary space between stimulus and response, opens up possibilities for new and fierce conversations, for cultivating practices to embody new learning, and for the skillful action required to generate the future.
Our collective future success depends on it.
At Q4, we’re committed to growing strong leaders, cultivating healthy workplaces, and strengthening engaged, thriving communities.Chris Johnson

We’ve enabled emerging and established leaders and their teams to:
- create cultures of trust via commitment practices
- develop embodied practices for transformational change

The intertwined threads of Attention, Awareness, and Conversation serve as the backbone of Q4’s customized consulting and leadership coaching practice.
Results? Work gets done, trust deepens.
Aware leaders embody an authenticity that makes others want to follow. They respond fully to each situation, moment to moment.
- They’ve honed their decision making amidst the day-to-day chaos.
- They’re engaged with their employees and colleagues and keep their commitments.
- They’re avid learners who increase the potential for stunning, sustained, and impactful success.
- They skillfully declare an effective path for the future.
As a leader, what kind of path are you creating?
Organizations strongly reflect their leaders—how they see the world, the actions they take, their way of being and working in the world.
Team members will follow your lead. When your actions are congruent with words, your very presence produces trust, engagement, and inspiration.
Challenging times, extraordinary results.
Transformation begins with you.
Exemplary leadership is a way of being, whether you’re leading others or leading your own life. Leadership can be developed: it’s a choice and an option. It’s a skill and an art that can be developed through commitment and practice.
