Quotidian Group is a premier executive development firm designed to help talented and dedicated individuals excel as leaders and thrive as people. Having studied clinical psychology before spending 20 years helping senior executives, Quotidian’s founder John Ficken, PhD, quickly learned that most development programs at best fostered transient changes and at worst perpetuated counterproductive habits. He was inspired to create Quotidian as a way to systematically capture and disseminate the most potent, time-tested mindshifts and practices for sustained fundamental change. John and his experienced team of coaching professionals have helped hundreds of executives step back from their hectic lives, reveal the deeply engrained patterns that limit them, and motivate them to progressively release more of their unique potential. At home and work.

For more than 20 years, John has dedicated himself to coaching talented, dedicated, and ambitious leaders in understanding and releasing their unique potential, at home and work. He named his company Quotidian (Latin for “every day”) based on his understanding that leadership, like any other skill, can be developed much more quickly through intentional daily mindshifts and practices that progress over time.
