For over 30 years, Jim has been training, developing, and coaching leaders in operations management and human resource management roles. Working with small companies, mid-sized companies and large Fortune 500 and Global Fortune 50 companies, he has equipped and grown high performers with higher potential.
My friend John C. Maxwell says, "everything rises and falls on leadership." Good leadership values and principles apply in every area of our lives - family and home, work and career, community and personally. I guide people to discover the character and competence to lead themselves, their families and others to an abundant life.
Whether you are looking for a new direction for your career, your work team, or your family, as a certified coach (John Maxwell, AACC) I can guide you to maximize your potential for well-being and success.
Money is a tool; it is neither good nor bad. How you use your money however, can be good or bad. I guide people to create financial margin in their lives so that they have more money than they "need" and can give generously to others.
As a certified master financial coach (Ramsey Solutions, AACC), I help people eliminate debt, make wise lifestyle choices, save for future needs, and live confidently and generously, in order to live a life full of peace, joy, and abundance.
"Jim is a down to earth guy who can communicate at any level effectively. From a board room, to a vendor meeting. Jim leaves no cracks for mis-communications. He is simply on top of his game, and on top of the field." -Buddy Bresnick
