I have been in the professional work force for over 30 years and I have been through numerous “team building / career-personal development / advance training” events and programs. Some have been quite good (and others not so much), but none of them compare to your approach and technique... it was awesome!

This was a great session! It was energetic, fun and tied really well to our value messages. Especially “Winning Together” and “Courage”. It was a invaluable addition to our meeting!

I would recommend this experience to others, especially the focus on listening skills and the analogies that can be drawn into the work experience, listening to your co-workers, playing a supporting role, a partnering role, an oppositional role, a baseline role, a complementary role.

The opening drum session set the beat for our entire event. It was imperative the group started to think as one, and we needed an ice breaker. You helped the top players in Affordable Comfort lead a charge for revolution.This symbolic event will be remembered by all.
— Xavier S. Walter President, The Energy Team
This program is a poignant example of how to be a better leader. Jim created both a visual and physical experience for all of us to tap into and capture. What I most appreciate is the way Jim provides such powerful means for participants to integrate and embody their learning. I love his stories, his energy, and most importantly his gift to connect with both individuals and the entire group. In a word? AWESOME!!!
