Jim has a proven ability to effectively engage and motivate key stakeholders while pursuing challenging performance objectives.  I have been involved in a number of successful business initiatives with Jim and I consider him one of the finest professionals I have dealt with. Jim has that rare combination of strong business acumen and a genuine interest in people that allow him to be such valuable leader and coach to high performing and high potential individuals.

Senior Vice President, Qtrade Financial Group

During my tenure as a colleague of Jim, I have witnessed and personally experienced substantial personal and professional growth as a result of his coaching.  Jim has always shown passion and deep commitment to coaching.  As a subject matter expert and the point of reference in the subject, he championed the development, deployment and training of the senior leadership team into a coaching curriculum that helped each one to be a better coach. This resulted in the business improving its capacity to drive superior business results by accelerating the development of its sales professionals into top performers.  On a personal note, Jim has been a tremendous help to me at different stages of my career by providing the necessary ingredients that allowed me to think differently, and explore new avenues at times when various challenges presented themselves. I have no hesitation recommending Jim’s services for anybody who is keen to develop themselves personally and professionally into a better leader for tomorrow.

Banking and Wealth Management Senior Executive

Receiving coaching support from Jim was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I own and run a business which has, interestingly, coaching as one of its service offerings.  In my business I work with executive coaches all the time and at one point, when I was bogged down with some specific and weighty problems, I realized that I, too, could use a coach to help me.  I was grappling with strategic decisions including staffing, resources, sales, and even my own decision-making.  Jim and I worked through a specific coaching philosophy and methodology that helped me, systematically, resolve those pressing issues, cover off others, and dramatically move my company forward.  His insights and expertise were spot on and I would highly recommend him as a coach.

President, Toombs Inc.

I worked with Jim over the course of a year as a coaching client. As the leader of an organization with 80 staff and a Senior Management team of five direct reports, I wanted to help my team to continue developing our current organizational performance to prepare for future growth. I noticed right away the strength of inter-personal connection that Jim brings to his practice, along with a genuine interest in my progress. Jim first helped me to bring greater clarity to my goals and intentions as a leader and provided ongoing encouragement and support for my development. I recommend Jim as a coach for others leaders who, like myself, want to create the greatest value they can.

Jim is a master at asking the powerful questions that matter to leaders.  I have worked with him for almost three years and due to the insights, that have surfaced during our coaching conversations, I have stepped onto a new stage from which to lead and I am loving it!  Thank you, Jim, for your commitment to growing leaders, at all stages of their career.

I was fortunate to work with Jim at a time when our company was going through a major transition. A new Investment sales platform was being introduced which impacted sales processes and expectations of sales individuals across the organization.

During this time, his positive influence was unmatched as he clearly demonstrated a talent to help individuals navigate through the complexities of the situation while developing their leadership and sales skills.

Jim is a gifted motivator and a true sales leader. He is someone with a personality that draws you in and is there every step of the way in your journey, with complete encouragement, support and commitment. Jim’s coaching style and methods are very effective and versatile, inspiring sales staff to reach inside of themselves to achieve their personal greatness. He demonstrates a unique balance of careful listening with sharing his wealth of knowledge and ideas during coaching sessions. Jim’s deep knowledge and expertise for personal development as a coach is coupled with a strong passion to help others grow and flourish in their professional life.
