Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. Standing on this foundation, the coach's responsibility is to:

    "My coaching sessions with James have provided me a great framework for analyzing the day-to-day aspects of my work, and for providing a strategic platform for my overall career vision. In the last 12-18 months I have gone through a lot of change, and working with James has been great in navigating through this period. Right now I feel that my career is heading in the direction that I want it to head."

    "My coaching sessions with James were really insightful for me as I transition from the corporate world into starting my own small business. James is a tremendous listener, has a tremendous capacity to distill to the essence, and to encourage forward momentum."

    "I feel very comfortable being coached by James. He is professional and respectful, and I always feel that our coaching conversations will remain confidential. I credit my coaching sessions with James to being able to see and accept that pursuing unrelated work opportunities could broaden my visibility within the company, and in turn open up new exciting professional opportunities."

    "James has been a role-model at our Toastmaster Club by providing a number of excellent speeches on professional and personal development. He also represents the club at Toastmaster Contests, and his Tall Tale winning speech at the 2012 District 83 Fall Contest (The Bear Necessities of Life) was awesome!"
