After our retreat with Jim, we had the tools and courage to address our tough issues. For the first time we were able to create a foundational partnership among our divisions, grounded in candor and authenticity.

In two days of intensive work together, Jim guided our partnership to a soft landing during a period of conflict by helping both of us ‘stretch’ our thoughts, actions, and hearts toward one another. We also have a new set of go-forward principles that guide us.
Jim has worked with the Private Investments department at CPPIB on several occasions. With his assistance our senior management team became more cohesive and greatly improved our communications with one another and with our direct reports. These more 'authentic conversations' have led to greater business productivity and a more enjoyable working environment for the entire department.
After 22 years of working in and running my family's business, I was worn out. Our top line was growing, but our bottom line wasn't. We were making mistakes and I was frustrated. Jim challenged me to re-focus my efforts from working in my business to working on my business, and the change has been dramatic. His ability to probe and ask the right questions inspired me to adopt a focus on our company culture that has been transformational for me and our team members. He has changed my life.
Jim has been an inspiring guide to me through all of my life transitions, large and small, personal and professional. His vast wisdom and practical experience – especially having run his own business – helped transform my relationship with myself, my approach to my life calling, and the world around me.
Jim and his associates have been instrumental in our firm's development around the most crucial area of business – communication. Day and day again we put into practice the elements developed during our OnCourse training. I'm proud to say these techniques have also had a positive impact on my personal relationships outside of work.
Jim Warner offers a wealth of ability and experience for navigating life's rough water.

Jim understands high achievers, how we interact, and what motivates us as people and business leaders. His work yields penetrating insights into what makes up and sustains a high-performance team.
Working with Jim Warner was of tremendous value to our senior leadership team. We were able to identify and work through the obstacles that were getting in the way of our making and executing important organizational decisions. I am forever grateful to Jim for his work with our company.
Jim is the most effective facilitator I have worked with. His combination of experience, judgment, and empathy allowed us to achieve real breakthroughs.
