Four years out of law school, I joined a peer support group led by Adam and Paul. Without the structure of school that I had known for so long, I found my approach to life more reactive than proactive, allowing certain aspects of my life to slip away. Although progressing forward in my professional and personal life, I felt a nagging sense of becoming unmoored. Within the structure of my forum, I learned to be intentional about where I focus my energy. After two years, I now have clarity around my sense of direction and purpose. My relationship with my wife, my family and my friends are also stronger because I am aware of and can openly communicate my needs and motivators. With the support and accountability of this group, I am confident that I will achieve a full life, well lived.
When I was 22 years old I joined a peer support group led by Adam and Paul. I truly feel lucky that I have had exposure to this unique dynamic. In an open environment with absolute trust, I have had the opportunity to be myself, speak my mind, learn from others that I respect, and get useful feedback on different aspects of my life. I can wholeheartedly claim that with support of this group I am taking full advantage of my life, living out my definition of success, comfortable with who I am, and confident in my path.
After 22 years of working in and running my family’s business, I was making mistakes, frustrated, and worn out. Jim challenged me to refocus my efforts from working in my business to working on my business … and the change has been dramatic.
Jim’s chapter-retreat theme of “Get Connected” re-energized our chapter and was our highest-rated event of the year. Due to Jim’s impact we are now one of the healthiest YPO/WPO chapters in the U.S. with significant presence at the GLC and other International events.
Each member of our group had a deeply personal – in some cases life-changing – experience during our time with Jim at the retreat. In all cases, there was unanimous agreement that with Jim as a catalyst, we were able to achieve the most meaningful forum experience in all of our years together. Jim IS the gold standard for forum retreat facilitators.
Jim Warner is an experienced pro and knows how to migrate with the participants’ needs and score a ’10’ each and every time. I recommend Jim and members of the OnCourse Team for any group development work, conference planning, forum moderating, or life-transition dialogue.
