“As a true believer in the unique superpowers of children, I was thrilled by this exploration of ways we can reclaim and harness those same powers as adults and leaders who want to be and do good in the world. The authors don’t pretend that qualities such as Authenticity, Resilience, and Compassion come easily to grown-ups, but they thoughtfully illustrate that each and every one of us has access to the power we carry.”
“What’s happened to those innate gifts of childhood that were sure to bring us joy and success as adults? The authors identify five ‘superpowers’ we’ve lost along the way and cleverly reveal how they’ve been wiped out. Curiosity, Authenticity, Resilience, Compassion, and Playfulness all still need a place in our adult lives in order for us to thrive. And it’s not too late—thankfully, there are some ideas here on how we can reintroduce them into our lives and recapture some of the happiness that’s escaped us.”
“For years, my work has been centered on the unsung hero of great leadership: the heart. Tapping into our humanity, and reaching toward the humanity of others, is what makes great things possible. That’s why I so greatly appreciate The Five Lost Superpowers. John, Andrew, Corena, and Lynae make a compelling case that the human powers of Curiosity, Authenticity, Compassion, Resilience, and Playfulness all deserve to be greatly elevated in workplace leadership. And reclaiming these powers for yourself is a way to supercharge the leader in you.”
“In his inspiring book, The Five Lost Superpowers, John and his fellow authors at JMReid Group teach us about the positive traits we possessed as children that are often misplaced as adults. This powerful playbook provides a deep understanding of these superpowers and how to find them again in yourself while leading others.”
“JMReid Group authors tap into an interesting premise that as we ‘develop into adulthood,’ we actually forsake the very powerful skills that naturally lie within us all as children. The power of Curiosity is especially relevant. I see a strong correlation in the best leaders I know and their undying and lifelong curiosity. The trait imbues their leadership style with a sense of the possible, tempers the arrogance that often comes with intellect, and drives a narrative of aspiration that inspires organizations.”

“This refreshing and engaging narrative breaks the mold from the typical “tried and true” leadership models. What distinguishes JMReid Group from the rest is the practical ideas and tips brought to life in The Five Lost Superpowers. This brilliant perspective on how to recognize and develop these behaviors reignites the fire to meet today’s leadership challenges head on. The time is now for this important and innovative read!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed reading John’s book. It’s full of great stories and relevant advice that anyone can put into practice straight away. Having worked with the JMReid Group, I can assure you that they embrace and live these superpowers.”
