I help leaders build successful careers, marriages and resilience into their

everyday lives.

I’m Jim Fickley – career and executive coach. My mission is to help people like you live and lead well so that you can make a difference in life.

With over three decades of counseling, professional coaching, and mostly real-life, in the trenches interaction with high achievers, my expertise is seasoned and practical. I can help you thrive in your leadership, family, career, and life.

I’ve come to appreciate that living and leading well is about paying attention to every domain of life. It’s about making critical, moment by moment choices, building healthy relationships and leading yourself so that you can bring out the best in you and those around you.

After I experienced a large corporate layoff, I was left with doubts about my abilities and talents. Jim reminded me of my gifts and values. He was instrumental in helping me find my next career.

I know how hard it can be.

I know how hard it can be when you’re doing the best you can. You’re by yourself … your head is down … you’re locked in on what’s right in front of you and hoping that it will all work out.

I lament that success at work seemed to be the only thing that mattered to me for many years. In regard to everything else?  I just got by. I regret that I wasn’t as fully present as I could have been at home. I didn’t like my job. I didn’t work out regularly or eat well. My health suffered. 

It all came to a head when I was forced to take a break from work for an extended period due to health-related issues. I was crushed!! 

Things began to change.

Eventually, in the midst of the embarrassment, I saw that I had been given a gift. It was a chance to be deliberate and create the life I wanted to live.

The change really took place when I hired a nationally recognized professional coach to help me identify the things that mattered most.

I began putting work in perspective so it didn’t consume me. I gained clarity on who I was, where I was going and how to get there. I created regular rhythms and routines that supported my priorities around health and family. I became fully present in every aspect of life.

Can I help you with your next step?

My goal is to help you transform your life by taking the guesswork out of what to do next so you don’t have to struggle in the same way I did.
