After meeting with James, I became a more effective team player and leader. James enabled me to guide myself to towards better self understanding. I uncovered perceptions, biases and assumptions that I was making in various aspects of my life. With greater self awareness I was able to communicate more effectively with teammates and lead us to exceeding our goals.
