Working with Jim changed the way I approached the work I was doing. He helped me unlock the capability to be effective that I couldn't quite channel until working with him. His approach is extremely mindful when working with clients and is great at asking the questions that untangle the way you are blocking yourself from achieving your goals as an individual and organization. The added plus is that Jim knows the startup industry and the business we are in as a former entrepreneur himself, which really helps with the context of how to be effective in that setting. Without a doubt, I'd recommend Jim as a coach that is impactful and has personally changed my life for the better and made our firm have an impact more quickly than we would have without his help.

Jim has the rare ability to uncover hidden opportunities that help his clients step up. He delicately balances the need for both executive coaching and guided internal work to overcome obstacles. I’ve worked with numerous coaches to learn that there’s no one better than Jim for executive leadership development.

“I set out to create a culture of authenticity, entrepreneurship and continuous improvement at Disruptor Beam—but rapid growth is always accompanied by organizational challenges. Our company has had to learn new skills. Jim’s coaching has helped us navigate our growth and gain awareness of how things have evolved from the time we’ve gone from a tiny startup to a growing enterprise of over a hundred people. Living our values consciously has resulted in improvements in team effectiveness and business results.”

“Working with Jim has been tremendously valuable to me and my company in its earliest and most unpredictable stages of development. His unique blend of coaching brings together decades of experience as an entrepreneur with a long tradition of mindfulness practice, and on the rollercoaster ride of new company development, this combination helps me to stay focused on what matters, and to ignore what doesn’t. Our coaching sessions have brought a sense of direction and confidence to my role as CEO, and to my personal and professional development more generally.”
