Jim specializes in helping the pulled-in-ten-directions, multifaceted person who is confused about career; in guiding the immobilized person who feels derailed by divorce, mid-life crisis, an ‘empty nest’, etc.; and in aiding the directionless person who feels trapped in a mundane routine and yearns to discover his/her purpose in life.
Coaching is a process that brings clarity, options, and forward movement in situations where people are frustrated by lack-of-progress. By providing structure, goal-setting, accountability, and removing blocks, a coach can help a client accomplish in weeks or months what has often eluded them for years. Career clarification usually takes 6-8 sessions; life transitions may require two to six months, depending on the circumstances.
