About Into The Zone
Is Type-A perfectionism wearing you out?
You’ve been performing at a level that leaves most people for dead. But has it become a hard slog? When was the last time you felt happy and energized at work?
Have you ever had days when everything ‘clicks’ into place, work is effortless and stress-free, and time flies? You were in the state that athletes call “The Zone”! Getting into this state is a skill, and it can be learnt.
I’m Joanne van Ravenswaaij and for the last 10 years, I’ve helped high-functioning people learn how to perform better, effortlessly and without stress. By getting into the Zone. Typically within 3-5 weeks.
I work with executives, professionals and students.
Thousands of people have used this innovative and proven method to transform how they feel as they work, study and live, and find energy, happiness and effortless, sustainable high performance.
Proven techniques and tips to help you shift :
- From busting a gut – to enjoying effortless performance and creativity
- From working all the time – to having time for a real life
- From feeling anxious and stressed – to energized and happy
- From being burnt-out and unable to work or study – to getting back to work or study and enjoying more Flow
- From being a Slave to your negative emotions – to a Master of how you feel and respond.
Like most of my clients, I started my career as a Type-A Perfectionist. I set high standards for myself (and everyone around me) and had a fearsome work-ethic. I was also massively stressed. Just as well I had a secret weapon that helped me de-stress.
But in my mid-30s, I couldn’t use my secret weapon and my escalating stress levels nearly broke me. Discovering the Zone program’s tools and techniques was the saving of me. I learnt how to get into the Zone, regardless of what I was doing or what was happening around me. And I discovered that when I got into the Zone at work, performing was easy and stress-free, and I had more experiences of being in the Flow state.
It transformed my life and I became inspired to help others experience this for themselves. I became an accredited Zone Coach in 2007 and I’ve been providing executive coaching, leadership training and keynote speaking since then. It’s the most satisfying work I’ve ever done.

What My Clients Say
As an IT Project Manager, I work under a lot of pressure on a daily basis. I’ve been using the Zone Program tools for nearly 10 years now, and I’ve become much calmer, even when a project is going pear-shaped and my manager or customer is breathing down my neck.
Remaining calm makes me more productive with less effort and gives me better outcomes at work and at home. Also I enjoy work and life so much more. I’ve learnt that getting stressed out doesn’t make things better; in fact it often makes things worse!
Within the first week of starting my coaching program, I noticed that I was more focused and calmer than I had been for decades. My wife noticed that I’d cut down on my drinking and it was effortless. Six months down the track, I continue to work more efficiently at the office and my golf game’s improved too. I certainly feel a lot happier and I cope with the everyday pressure of life much better than I used to.
Joanne’s provided me innovative tools to help improve how I felt while I worked, even in challenging situations. It sounds simple, but the results have been amazing. Over the last 2 months, I have felt more peaceful and experienced higher productivity and performance with less effort. I now feel empowered having the tools to get in the Zone more often, and more quickly after being thrown out.
When my husband was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, it was an unbelievably stressful year for both of us. It left me emotionally exhausted and unable to work. A few weeks into my Zone program, I was much more relaxed, had recouped my energy level and best of all, could return to the things which gave me joy – including getting back into my studio to be creative and weave my designs. Now a year on, I continue to use the Zone tools and feel confident to face any further trouble life might throw at me.
Learning how to get into the Flow state has had a tremendous impact on my work. For the last two months, I have more than doubled my previous best sales result and been the top salesperson in my office. These results have put me on my company’s top performer’s list for the first time. The program paid for itself in the first month! Best of all, work is now effortless. I’m achieving 7 sales with less effort than it used to take to make just 1 sale.
