I decided to meet with Jim when I was contemplating making a big career change. I found my meetings with him to be supportive, helpful and constructive. Throughout the process he challenged me and helped me see what I could not see before. I was lost and scared in my previous job and Jim helped me by walking me through the process of change. His advice was pragmatic and realistic, serving as a catalyst for attainable change. With Jim’s coaching, I identified my passions and talents and created a plan to open my own business, which I am currently successfully running and growing. Jim is a great coach and I highly recommend him.

Jim in FABULOUS! I have been going to Jim for interview preparations and practice since I struggle with interviewing. He is thoughtful and very skilled at providing you with constructive feedback and guidance. Since going to Jim I have received amazing feedback about my interviews and it can be clearly attributed to his coaching and support. I highly recommend him if you need help preparing for an interview or career advice.

Jim is a talented professional, insightful thinker, and experienced business person. His counsel has been invaluable to me at different stages of my career, and especially when I’ve needed to navigate tough transitions. Jim has helped me to better understand and appreciate my strengths as a leader and manager, identify areas of improvement, and to come up with practical and actionable steps to optimize the former and tackle the latter. Above all, he’s caring, warm, funny, and super smart. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

After a 12-year corporate career, I was fortunate enough to work with Jim as I transitioned to a very different path. I am now a successful small business owner in New England. Jim was able to help me realize that, as clichéd as it may sound, I can do pretty much anything I want to. His wisdom and intelligence not only provided the support to move into a non-traditional career, but also helped me to grow in my personal relationships. Jim’s clients benefit from his amazing ability to identify, analyze, and synthesize issues into a coherent picture of the future that is both inspiring and energizing.

As an executive search/headhunter I have been lucky enough to partner with Jim on a number of occasions. I have referred several local and remote (Skype, etc.) mid-level to executive-level candidates to him who have reported back to me with rave reviews. Jim has also consulted with me whenever my executive search expertise has been a helpful element to his full-service thoughtful career advice he provides his clients. 100% class act and worth the investment.

I am so incredibly grateful for Jim’s guidance during a challenging career change. His insight, feedback, and support were essential to my success in landing a dream job. From helping me chart a new course and finding a new passion after burning out in a draining career, to coaching me through final interviews, he was with me every step of the way. I cannot recommend him enough!

Working with Jim was a refreshing and positive experience. As a first-timer to working with a coach, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Jim was spot-on in identifying the primary goals and we achieved them within the four weeks he had predicted. His great demeanor made the process effective and easy. Jim is truly delighted in the progress his clients make. This became clear when seeing the broad smile and satisfaction on his face when he realized we achieved our stated goals and that I had the tools to take the next step in my professional and personal success. He’s a great resource to have.
