For the past several decades I’ve been working directly with a limited number of professionals, from entrepreneurs to executives to technologists in transformational career coaching.  The following concepts dictate how successful you can become, how far you wish to go and how much you wish to achieve.

When working with clients we begin by  finding the ideal self which is centered on autonomous motivation: what a person wants to do, and results in sustained, desired change. Conversely, the ought self is based on controlled motivation: what a person feels they must do based on the standards of others. The ideal self comprises hope, core identity, and an image of a desired future, and is fueled by optimism and self-efficacy.

In our coaching work together, we focus on the areas where you’d like to grow, which may include:

  • Career Path Accountability
  • Performance Improvements
  • Enhanced Leadership Skills
  • Increased Employee Engagement
  • Increased Customer Satisfaction
  • Broadened Business Knowledge

I typically work with clients on Resume/LinkedIn Transformation which lead to either a Half-Day Strategy Session or a Six-Month Coaching engagement. These are not right for everyone; they’re personalized offerings and are priced accordingly.  If you’d like to learn more about opportunities for more intensive personal work together, please read below.


Today, I’m the author of Cutting Edge CIO series of books published by Across Linkage LLC.  I consult for organizations such as Bain, Morgan Stanley, KLAS, Gartner, BoA, Forrester, and many others. I serve on MIT Global Technology, Forbes, and more. I’ve reinvented myself professionally many times and have worked as a CIO, COO, Controller, Director and a Board member, across profit, non-profit companies and government institutions. I’m active on social media and have been recognized for many years by technology media magazines.



Resume/LinkedIn Transformation – $300 USD

Work 1-on-1 to turn your resume and LinkedIn profile into an “interview magnet.”

  • Detailed 30 minute resume strategy call where you get action items and follow-ups for creating great resume content
  • Access to a professionally designed resume template in PDF and Word.
  • Email support for up to 2 rounds of resume revisions to get your resume optimized, polished and ready to send out
  • A wrap-up 30 minute coaching session reviewing your finalized resume and addressing your most pressing job search questions

Please note, this package is NOT the right fit if you’re looking for a resume writer to do all the work for you. We’ve seen too many resume writers deliver sub-par resumes because they don’t know the ins and outs of the work you have done.

If you’re ready to take an active role in creating a resume that showcases what you have to offer and looks great, your executive career coach will guide you every step of the way.

Resume/LinkedIn Transformation – $300 USD

But it wasn’t always that way…

I remember vying for project leads and managerial positions and being summarily rejected.  I realized from hitting the wall of upward mobility where I needed to go and what I needed to gain. I couldn’t translate my smarts into action, my desires into results, or make the leap from manager to leader. I broke through and have been able to reinvent myself and build a meaningful, exciting, and lucrative career. I’ve learned a lot along the path, and now I look forward to helping you do the same.

Katherine L. Wells Fargo

“Jamie has been my coach for 2 years. In that time period he has coached me to develop a long term plan for my career and my life and developing objectives to meet my goals. He has encouraged me on my way to delivering against those goals as well as leading me in lasting change as a manager and an individual. Through his approach and my goals, I have moved permanently from a ”my way“ approach to an ”our way“ approach, am able to understand how emotions play a role in productivity and am able to connect with others based on understanding their needs versus mine. And I love the changes. Without Jamie, I do not believe the change would have been transformative or permanent.”
