Jim Young

I coach because I love to help people grow beyond what they think is possible for themselves. I especially like coaching men who are feeling lost, or disappointed, or even (gulp) like a failure in life. 

I help organizations grow through the use of applied improv, coaching, and other techniques, because I love it when people come together to create something bigger and more bountiful than they could on their own. I also love to create as much fun as possible for others!

Here's what I help my clients achieve (and how, in each sub-bullet): 

  • Step out of the noise of their life to gain clarity on what they are wanting most

    • I do this by listening intensely to everything they say, without any judgment, and asking them questions that get to the heart of the matter​

  • Identify the roadblocks that are keeping them from their most important goals

    • I help them understand the negative self-talk that's holding them back​ and to instead find their true strengths that will carry them through change

  • Create a plan to change so they can move ahead with the life​ they really want

    • I challenge them to go further and hold them accountable​ to their commitments​

  • Maintain a positive attitude along the way to new growth

    • I provide reflections, encouragement, and validation for all the difficult work involved with growth, something that can be especially hard​ for men to see for themselves

I've been helping people through leadership, coaching and improv for a long time. Along the way, here's who and what I've become...
