Jim Franks is an outstanding Co-Active Coach.  He has demonstrated a high degree of expertise and is one of the most authentic and sincere individuals that I have ever had the pleasure to work with.  Jim continues to impress me with his sensitivity and trusting nature.  Working with my Coach has helped me to stay focused on achieving my goals and understanding what I want to do with my person and professional life.  In addition, he is very open, inviting to questions (and expressed appreciation for them) and willingly gave his time to thoroughly respond to my questions. Jim is extremely enthusiastic about his work which is very infectious and refreshing. I am very grateful to have him as my Coach and would highly recommend him to anyone that wants a true professional.

I've known Jim for nearly five years. I am grateful for the many things he taught me about business and the way to treat people. He always leads by serving, and supporting me in my roles. Developing as a leader was something he took personally, and encouraging others to do likewise was at the forefront of his activities. He made me better at what I do!   Jim creates a healthy culture around the work place, by fostering trust and open conversation. I appreciated his positive outlook, his encouraging words and his ability to motivate others to strive for excellence. He helped me set realistic goals, held me accountable, while also helping me achieve them.  Jim is an excellent coach and mentor. I'm confident he will help you succeed also!

Jim's coaching has changed my life.  Before we worked together, my life was not really on track.  I knew I wanted to do something important with my life but didn't know what it was or how to go about it.   After working with Jim, I figured out my life purpose and set up a plan to get there.  I've got a long way to go, but I am so excited about the future and now I have an excellent plan in place.  Thank you, Jim for making a difference in my life.

The thing I like about Jim is his attitude.  He truly believes in my potential even when I have doubts.  And he also calls me on it!  He calls it "stinkin thinkin." I was stuck in a good job, but it wasn't really very fulfilling.  He helped me see how to make it much better where I was and we also set out a plan for the next steps too.  My boss loves my new approach to work and my leadership abilities have dramatically improved.  My team loves working for the new me.  I'm excited about the future and am grateful for having Jim as my coach.

I hired Jim about a year ago when I was reaching a plateau in my career.  I'm a COO at a mid-sized manufacturer and feeling like my growth as a professional had run into a wall.  Working with Jim I was able to see things that I couldn't before.  Frankly I was blind to some of the things I was doing.   No one around me had the courage to tell me.  Jim did.  We also did assessments with the key people around me and that really opened my eyes.  I thought I was a good listener until we asked my direct reports.   After that dose of reality we set out a plan to improve this key skill.  After six months the follow-on assessments showed excellent improvement, but there is room for more.  I am grateful for the learning and there is no price I can put on this.  Thanks Jim!
