"Jim took our enthusiasm, strengths, questions, and misgivings, and used them to focus our energies on where we needed to go as a team and organization.

"Thank you for the workshop you presented recently at Dofasco. Your style lends itself to allow the participants to have an enjoyable time and at the same time leave with some new and simple ideas and insights. Your story telling struck a cord with me because in the work I do in our organization, the need for this ability is essential. Drawing on simple analogies or your own experiences in life can often times crystallize the abstract for yourself and others."
- Charlie Hendershott, Organization Development Specialist, Dofasco Inc.

"The most advantageous thing about the workshop is being able to assist others with how to cope with change. Working in manufacturing obviously means things change quite often; layoffs, downsizing, processes, etc. Guiding people through these changes can be challenging but using the right tools and motivational tactics, I find can not only assist people through change but also, if need be, accelerate the change. The different examples and situations we heard and covered at your seminar have helped me assess and prepare for specific situations."
- David Graff, Manufacturing Team Leader, Honeywell Limited

- Stu Emerson, General Manager, Supremex

"Great at getting everyone involved in the discussions. I would definitely refer any of my colleagues to book Jim as a speaker. Enjoyable!"
- Tim Cunningham, Sales Manager, Supremex

"I would like to again thank you for an excellent workshop on coaching, that you delivered to our International Sales Directors Meeting in Paris, France, last week. The day's workshop started at a basic level and then progressed in such a way as to bring added value to even those more advanced, coaching savvy, country Directors. You very effectively brought some of the developing country Managers up to speed on the concept of coaching and yet still enhanced the coaching skills of the more experienced in the group. Although the room left much to be desired, you never lost the group. You managed to keep a very diverse audience involved in your material and participating in the development of their new-found or somewhat established coaching skills. They certainly left the meeting with a clear and solid path to follow in implementing the skills learned and/or new ideas gained. Jim, as I mentioned in my opening remarks, 'any increase in managerial effectiveness translates directly to the bottom line'. Your coaching skills workshop has definitely increased the managerial effectiveness of our Sales Managers and Directors from around the world. Our shareholders will therefore appreciate your program when our year end results are posted next year. Thanks again for a great program."
- George Gilraine, General Manager, Nordisk Pharmaceutical Ltd.

"Excellent - I've been a fan for years!"
- Kim Kraemer, Employee Development, Mitra Imaging

"My life has become very focused since your workshop in Orangeville for the Forestry Technicians at Hydro One. I have moved on after reflecting on all of the tragedy in my life in the past year (the loss of a relationship and the death of numerous young, close friends in tragic separate incidents). Even my parents pondering divorce (after 43 years) is not disrupting my focus. I went and spent 4 days with my parents after their announcement, said what I had to say and listened to their points of view. It was sad walking away from the situation, but on the way home I just thought 'this cannot affect where I am supposed to be'. I spoke my thoughts and listened and said to myself. That is all I can do.The chips will have to fall where they may. Prior to your workshop, I would have let it consume me. Thanks for the help."
- Mark, Hydro One

- Al Cormier, Executive Vice President, Canadian Urban Transit Association
