Jim Mitchell, Practical Transformationalist.
Hi. I’m Jim Mitchell. I use that term ‘practical transformationalist’ very deliberately and very consciously. In my work, I’m all about growth, development, learning, and transformation. I’m committed to models, ideas, conversations, and exchanges that you can walk out the door with and immediately put to use making work, family, life, and relationships all more powerful and effective for all concerned. I’m not interested in smoke and mirrors. Not interested in too much woojie woojie that cannot be grounded in new, doable behaviors that make life work better. You will leave with lots of choices around how you show up going forward, how you want to show up going forward, and what you can do about all that.
Jim Mitchell is a native Arizonan and recognized personal and corporate leadership development specialist and leadership consultant. He facilitates vulnerability-based leadership, emotional intelligence-based leadership, deep personal leadership, advanced communication skills, conflict resolution, personal vision, mission and purpose, culture change and performance acceleration and improvement workshops for a variety of individuals and clients around the globe.
