“More than just having an in-depth grasp of Strengthsfinder itself, Bill James brings a wealth of life experience, professional insight and strong interpersonal abilities to his consulting and coaching. In my own case, he helped me appreciate some unique innate strengths I sometimes overlook, and how those contribute to my goals and chosen purpose.”

T. Collins Logan, Creator, Integral Lifework

“It is such a pleasure working with Bill. He’s highly effective at modeling social work skills & values at a macro level. I’ve always appreciated that he makes time outside of scheduled meetings to engage in creative thinking so that projects are even more impactful. I value Bill as a thought partner in facilitating transformative change.”
