"One of the secrets to Jim Kimberly's success is that he can successfully integrate into a company to the point that he is no longer viewed as an outsider. People feel that they can talk to him, which helps him be a very effective trainer. Personally, Jim has been a great outlet and an exceptional executive coach. He has the unique ability to deliver tough messages without being critical or putting you on the defensive."
-- Mike Hanrahan
