Wonder is One Degree Away


Hi, I’m John Guastaferro. As a brand strategist, nonprofit leader, and worldwide magician, I believe we all have the power to create wonder! And it’s closer than we think—just one degree away. 


Working with clients like Disney, Sony, UCI, and people across 11 countries, I help leaders uncover pivotal one degree micro-shifts to connect three core areas of success: Team, Brand & Cause.


I do this through keynotes, corporate retreats, leadership development trainings, coaching, and brand consulting—all designed to spark wonder and awaken teams to new possibilities.

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.
