Jim is a gifted career coach who brings invaluable personal experience and perspective to any every conversation. I have worked with Jim for nearly a decade, and his wisdom and insight have helped me not only to become a better team member and colleague, but to navigate the difficult transition to executive leadership. I highly recommend Jim to anybody who is looking to take their professional standing to the next level.
I strongly recommend Jim for his career and life coaching. Jim brings wisdom, life experience and guidance with compassion. He brings the rare constellation of executive management experience in business layered with a Psychotherapy license and topped with years of life experiences that has made him a careful listener and a source of intelligent, compassionate guidance tuned to the person and to the person's unique needs. I've known Jim for over 30 years and implicitly trust his judgment and guidance.
I've been speaking with Jim for a number of years about my various career moves and anxieties. He has been an incredibly stabilizing presence over the long term as I navigate my complicated career path. Jim combines no-nonsense guidance with a touch of personal empathy that has made him the right choice for me in a counselor and will be for many years to come.
With just a few sessions, Jim helped me fine tune my resume and prepare for interviews to successfully make a career transition. His services are well worth the investment.
We all have career stuff, whether it's self-inflicted or termination beyond one's control. I've experienced both. Jim can help you through whatever your circumstances may be. He creates a connection where it's safe to share what is really going on.
I have known Jim professionally for almost 15 years. His intelligence, experience, and background are all exceptional, which has led me to send numerous patients of mine to him when they are in need of career guidance (I am a Jungian psychoanalyst). The feedback I've gotten from them has been uniformly positive - he's made a real difference in their lives.
Jim is a trusted and effective advisor who helps you develop the skills, insights, connections and tools you need to be successful in all aspects of your life. Jim's committed to helping you achieve your goals with no-nonsense guidance and a compassionate style. Working with him puts you on the fast track to meeting and exceeding your goals.
I cannot tell you how many times he contacted me out of the blue and asked me how things are, right when I needed it. I do not know if that is serendipity or professional knowhow but it is truly amazing how he manages me. I know my balance today is a result of his extremely personalized, exact, considerate, insightful, counsel.
It was a pleasure working with Jim. His open-minded approach to exploring possibilities helped me see things I hadn't considered and created greater self-belief and financial reward. I am on track to doubling my income this year. His counsel on managing work and home-life have been of immense value.
Downsized and uncertain at 62, I sought out Jim based upon his impressive academic and “real-world” (Harvard/public relations) background. Within two appointments, he had me thinking of a completely different approach to working my contacts and marketing myself. This was no small accomplishment given that I was absolutely convinced I knew how to present myself to the marketplace, even though I’d received nothing more than cursory courtesy interviews for over 9 months. Jim gently, but firmly, got my ego under control and gave me measurable focus. When a traumatic personal challenge arose, Jim immediately and seamlessly shifted our focus. His business acumen morphed in front of my eyes to a kind, compassionate, yet firm, ear, shoulder and guide. His patience and wisdom allowed me to come to terms with issues I’d never acknowledged and to build a new life platform.
