Connecting Teams ONE DEGREE CONNECT to Greatness

Wonder is One Degree Away


Hi, I’m John Guastaferro. I believe the extraordinary is closer than we think—just one degree away. Working with clients like Disney, Sony, and UCI, I help leaders uncover “one degree” micro-shifts to connect three core areas of success: Team, Brand, and Cause. 

When these areas are in alignment, it adds wonder to all you do. I bring these concepts to life through inspiring keynotes, corporate retreats, strategic planning, and brand revitalization.

Meet John

Ever since I can remember, I have been drawn to creative ways to add more wonder to the world. As an award-winning branding strategist, author, speaker, and professional magician, it is my life mission to connect people to the extraordinary! 


The extraordinary is closer than we think…just one degree away. Even the smallest shifts in these areas can create powerful outcomes. From keynotes to corporate retreats, I bring these concepts to life to help you elevate wonder and success in all you do.

The Power of Three


Today’s consumers are looking for more than great products or services. They want to feel connected to you, your brand promise, and your social values. That’s why it’s so important to connect your Team, Brand & Cause. Each is important. Together, they create wonder!


The best part is that you are closer than you think. It often takes small, intentional “one degree” shifts to align your team, brand, and cause. I’ve brought these concepts to Disney, Sony, nonprofits, corporations, universities, and CEO peer groups. Discover for yourself. 

The One Degree Difference

We are often tempted to make massive changes or sudden 180 degree shifts when things aren’t going as planned. I take a different approach by embracing the power of one degree. Just as heating water from 211 to 212˚ takes it to the boiling point, even a one degree shift can create extraordinary possibilities. It is a message I’ve shared in my international-selling book One Degree and in presentations across 11 countries. Working with clients like Disney, Sony, and UCI, I help leaders uncover pivotal one degree strategies to connect three core areas of success: Team, Brand & Cause.
