Jim is a co-founder and past CEO of Boardroom Metrics. He is also an experienced CEO, Consultant and Director of organizations in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
I provide specialized training in two areas: Board and CEO evaluations. My half and full day interactive sessions help Boards and CEO’s of public, private and not-for-profit organizations come to grips with their governance roles and how to evaluate themselves effectively. Participants are enthusiastic about the best practices they learn and their engagement with others. The tools and approaches they take away can be implemented immediately.
Facilitation is my favourite planning tool and favourite tool for helping Boards and senior management teams align around their business. What makes facilitation so great is that it breaks down silos, creates clarity, unveils possibilities and ensures accountability. Depending on the need, I can facilitate tactically – solve a specific problem in two hours – or strategically – take time to build insight, relationships, consensus, commitment and the future of a business.
Twenty years ago I jumped out of corporate consulting to start my own practice. Today, no one really retires and I use the freelance business skills I learned over time to help post-corporate executives stay busy, give back and earn additional income. Are you thinking about becoming a consultant, coach or interim manager? It’s not easy and a key part of my Boardroom Metrics’ role is providing experienced insight and an empathetic ear for those committed to succeeding post-corporately.
Do you suddenly wish you could connect with an expert or other business leader about an issue or opportunity? I’ve maintained strong relationships through my career and my network of leaders, experts and influencers is extensive. If I don’t know someone, the Boardroom Metrics team will, ensuring that the right connection for you is never far away.
