"Jim Kimberly's coaching helped me work more effectively with people and learn to be a leader, rather than just a boss. He challenges you and provides very candid feedback that pushes you to become a better leader and communicator. Jim's coaching is applicable no matter what your experience or your industry because he focuses on good, down-to-earth skills that help you understand your own management style, how it impacts others and how to improve your interactions with other people. I highly recommend him to any company that is trying to develop leaders and any leader who wants to be better at his or her job."

"Everyone needs someone to hold them accountable, someone to be straight with them. When you’re an owner, staff members will often filter remarks when you actually need their opinions in order to make better decisions. I rely on Jim Kimberly to be brutally honest and tell me what he thinks. He uses his knowledge of what works in organizations of different sizes and helps me understand what’s at the root of the issues, offers solutions and assists with implementation of initiatives.”
