The centerpiece of my work is powerful conversation. Talking about what isn’t being talked about. Facing what isn’t being faced. Calling forward greatness and genius. All done in a safe container of trust, respect, and love. All done while having fun.

Leaders call me in to coach them because they know that there is more. More of them that is not fully in the game. More possibility than they are currently experiencing in their relationships, their organizations, their effectiveness, their freedom, their joy.

My coaching is results focused not “problem” centered. You tell me what results you want and together we bring those results into reality. My experience is that this co-creation process can be fun and amazingly effortless. In fact, one of the things we’ll discover is that wherever you’re efforting, you’re wasting energy.

People I coach bring their whole life into the coaching conversation. I’ve learned that leaders don’t compartmentalize their life into categories like “personal” and “professional” or “public” and “private.” These categories are unnecessarily artificial. There is one YOU and it’s showing up everywhere.

"It can be quite convenient to avoid uncomfortable truths about our professional and personal lives.  Jim has been invaluable in helping challenge me to explore these aspects of my own life.  And, in essence, he has guided me to work harder at becoming a better and more authentic leader, husband and father."
