Why I Do It


John Scalici is an award winning teaching artist, author, internationally recognized facilitator, musician, and a member of the John C. Maxwell Team of certified speakers, coaches, and trainers.  His Rhythm of Leadership®  and Unity Through Rhythm® programs are in high demand and highly regarded at leading corporations, college campuses, elementary, middle and high schools across the U.S. and in Japan. No matter the size of the audience, Mr. Scalici’s speaking style is engaging, powerful, and upbeat! More…


I facilitate, lead, and guide  Interactive Rhythm Programs. I use experiential learning  to help groups understand how valuable we are to each other and how we are all connected.  Rhythm is a universal language–everyone speaks it, everyone understands it. A Get Rhythm!® program will provide this discovery process so that a group of people may become empowered to play, think and live more synergistically with the world around them. More…


The mission of all my programs is to Inspire, Motivate, and Empower all people through the universal language of rhythm. These groups may be corporate, college, elementary or high school. They may even have special needs or be at-risk youth. Whatever the situation, it is my passion to connect them and connect WITH them and lead them on a genuine path of self development.

"John, your rhythm program was great! People talked about it a lot and used some of the thoughts you had during the afternoon session so it hit exactly what we wanted it to. Your insights and teachings on leadership really added value to our team. Thanks again!

John used his influence to help us do better. But his demeanor was supportive not critical, engaging not aloof, and he never made us consider how hard his job or preparation was!

The activity was the symbol of “Unity by Choice” for me. Our internal drive to elevate to our individual callings converged on one beat, one melody, one rhythm toward the pulse of the team Thank you for the moving experience.That sound will be with me forever.

“This was an amazing exercise where we each came in and sat in a circle of chairs that each had a rhythm instrument. John led us in several exercises then had individuals from the group lead. It was purely amazing!!

“Thank you for coming and facilitating the afternoon session on our Junior Retreat. The Get Rhythm Program was an excellent avenue for the students to experience first-hand what we discussed in the morning about community and cooperation. The students throughly enjoyed themselves, and I know it added to the overall learning of our day. Thank you for your excellent facilitation that helped us learn how to work for and with each other.”

A great example of leading from the middle, regardless of the noise you have around you. A leader must be able to communicate no matter the situation or environment. Your exercise truly underscored the power of leading from the middle.
