Allan Ala'alatoa

Dan has helped me discover my true values, who I am as a person, what/who is most important to me and how I want to live my life.

Together we worked on different goals based on individual performance, leadership/team growth and being present at home. Needless to say I have grown as a husband, father and leader of my team.

I’ll continue to work with Dan to not only be the best version of myself, but also to enhance the impact I have on the people around me.”

Former World Player of the Year

Shaun Johnson

“Dan has unlocked me. Early on in the 2020 season I was struggling and copped a fair bit of criticism. What he has been able to give me in terms of belief and trusting myself has been the reason for my turnaround.”

“Dan Haesler not only inspires you to be the best version of yourself, but provides the space and steps to become that for yourself and your team – especially if you think you’re at the top of your game!”
