"I have personally worked with Jim on a number of senior leaders that report to me and in every instance his work has exceeded my expectations. He has had some "difficult"; executives to get through to and has always been highly successful.
I would recommend Jim as a coach because of his genuine professional style with our executives. He works well with executives of all demographics and is non-threatening in his approach. In each case the leaders have opened up to him and have enjoyed the follow-up sessions even after some difficult conversations.
I would not hesitate to have Jim come into any workplace and know that you would get excellent professional expertise."
