I've had the privilege of working with some amazing people. You can read about some of them here:
“Jim was my career coach at my previous job and he coached me for 6 months. Unlike many other coaches, who normally focus on strength finding, weakness improvement, pretty much limit coaching on professional career skills, his coaching was beyond that, more purpose driven. Through his coaching, he really ignited my inner drive to pursue what I want to be, above professional career goals. He is very friendly, experienced and I really enjoyed all the sessions with him.”
Alex Lu, former Head of Data Science, Pinterest
"I was at an inflection point in my career, and working with Jim helped me to see much more clearly what was important to me, what most motivates me, and to gain the confidence in myself to pursue a new path. It's very scary to take a leap, but thanks to Jim's insight and dedication to helping me uncover what I was most afraid of, I was able to bring my strengths and my priorities into sharper focus, and use them to guide my decisions. I always looked forward to our time together, even when the conversations were challenging, because Jim is so easy to talk to and always made me laugh."
Danika Laszuk, General Manager, Betaworks Camp and former marketing leader at Apple and Jawbone
“At the end of 2017, I found myself working for a toxic boss in a role that I otherwise loved with coworkers that I adored. We have all read and by now should understand the toll of a toxic boss. To say that I was conflicted about my next move was an understatement. I had the good fortune to be referred to Jim through a mutual connection. I could not be more grateful! Through Jim's coaching, I was able to sort through the conflict and find my path forward. Jim's approach is supportive, but also direct. He doesn't waste time being a cheerleader when what is needed is a trailblazer helping you clear the rubbish and move to wide open pasture (pardon the metaphor). Jim helped me put language to the things that are most important to me. Building a strategy around those priorities enabled me to find satisfaction in my work life that I have not had in a very long time.”
Shelley Binkley, COO and Business Operations Leader
“The reason Jim is a great coach is because he truly cares about the people he works with. When someone is genuinely invested in your progress, you have the opportunity to grow rapidly by learning things about yourself that you didn’t know. The insights Jim has given me about my own motivations and aspirations have been eye opening to me, and have helped me through some of the biggest crossroads of my career – both high and low. Whenever I need to get grounded in my own thoughts and develop a plan of action, I call Jim. He’s able to look at the big picture and help me zero in on exactly what I need to accomplish, and how to do it”
Keely Sulprizio, Global Communications Director, Tesla.
“Jim’s coaching had an immense impact on both my professional and personal development. He enabled me to stay grounded, even in challenging situations and I learned how to always call the very best version out of myself. The integration of the coachee’s non-work life into the professional coaching is what makes Jim unique and impactful as a coach. I wouldn’t be where I am without him as a coach.”
Carolin Steurer, Senior Product Manager, Udacity
"People throw around "life-changing" so much that its kinda lost its meaning - a life-changing movie, a life-changing burrito. But working with Jim has given me a completely new perspective on every aspect of my life, and my overall purpose. I came into the coaching relationship just looking for advice on the next career step, but came out the other side with a fully-rounded approach to all aspects of my life - my job, my family, my side-projects and my good deeds. This has led me to truly re-evaluate where I am, how I find fulfilment, and create a clear vision for the future."
