“Jim has been my coach for many years, and he is extraordinary. His coaching expertise is second to none, and he always manages to ask the right questions at the right moments to help me think deeply about my path forward.

“What is unique about Jim is not only does he know his material thoroughly, he knows how to apply it with each individual and then make it applicable to a team. Jim has the ability to connect to his clients with a unique and confident style.
The results are deeper insights into how individuals perform, what motivates them and what discourages them. Applied to the team’s dynamics we are able to build road maps to align divisional goals and reach them with much more clarity and insight to how the team will increase performance with greater ease and ultimately increase ROI.” – Julie Hutchinson, CEO, Core Performance, coreperformance.us
“When I hired Jim Parker my law firm was stable and very profitable, but I had lofty dreams and didn’t know how to grow the firm to the next level. Staff stability was an issue and I had been ineffective, prior to working with Jim, in addressing these issues. Since hiring Jim as our coach, we have developed a good plan for addressing staff concerns, getting new talent and working with the staff to develop them for our continued growth. We doubled our sales at the end of the first year of coaching, which supported our move into a more prestigious space for the firm, helping me to realize a part of the dream I’ve had for my business. Having a coach helps me make my lofty dreams a reality.“ – Thomas Wilson Esquire, Law Offices of Thomas Wilson
”We have accomplished a lot. Without Jim’s coaching and support we would not have been able to accomplish what we have, growing from 1 facility to 3 plus a mobile unit.

“When I started working with Jim, I was looking at what was next in my business and what direction I wanted to go. Since then, I have had Jim’s support, encouragement, and skills in keeping me on target and accountable for what I desire, as well as his help with prioritizing what the next step was to keep me from being overwhelmed. We have worked together for many years and I have gone from a small sole practitioner trying to make ends meet to a very successful family business partnership.

Jim has helped me to uncover patterns, take positive actions, and more than anything, believe in the power and beauty of being me. Jim has a way of challenging and questioning that leads me to my own discoveries without any judgement and with complete confidence in my abilities and worth.
I don’t care to imagine what life would be like today if I hadn’t had his support and coaching for the last 3 years. Thank you for believing in me and challenging me to see what is possible, most powerful, and within reach at every turn.” – Jana
“I have been working with Jim Parker for about 9 months. Initially, we sat down and discussed where I was in my life at present, things that had transpired in the past, and what I wanted to create for myself in the future. With his support and urging (and sometimes a little push when I’ve needed it) I have been able to tap into my dreams and desires, some of which I didn’t even know I had. I find myself open to more possibilities and not just being stuck on how I think things have to look. One of the results of our work together has been an increase and expansion of my creativity. Another has been the creation of a loving, intimate relationship. Jim has been a great source of friendship and support. He has a genuine desire to see all of his clients create the authentic, passionate lives they want.” – Sarah
”Jim Parker is an astute listener, truly gifted in meeting a coachee where they are and quickly grasping where they want to go. He then positions himself as a partner on your path, and alternates brilliant observations and questions with inspiring messages of encouragement and support. My somewhat difficult personal and professional path over the last 5 years has been frequently lit by his presence. My appreciation as well as recommendation of him are unparalleled.” – Linda O’Keefe, Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Life Coach, lindaokeefe.com
“Jim Parker was sincere and during our conversation I felt that he listened intently and always seemed ‘tuned in’ to what I was expressing. I was thoroughly impressed with his ability to sift through my thoughts and words and pinpoint what the root problem was. He always seems to see right through the things that I can’t see through myself. After the first session I felt like I had so much more order to my life.
Jim has the personal experience that I feel someone in his profession needs to help others deal with the complexities in life. He places no judgment, only direction. He is soft, yet strong, and has incredible focus.” – Katie Hamilton Licensed Acupuncturist, thehealingblossom.net
“There are a lot of personality assessments out there. I’ve taken a few, but never really understood how they apply to my life. The way Jim uses assessments to give you actionable, realistic and life-changing goals is pure genius. He helps you understand how and why you make decisions, what truly matters to you and the small things you can do to affect real change in your day-to-day life. If you’re unsure about why you’re repeating patterns, what’s holding you back or why you’re here – Jim’s the person to help you.” – Rachel C Vane aka RC Vane Web + Brand Design, rcvane.com
