Jim Boneau is an internationally recognized leadership coach and facilitator of leadership and organizational development workshops. Leaders and teams who work with Jim strengthen their ability to effectively communicate strategy, build bonds of trust, and cascade the organization’s values and vision with their teams, partners and customers. Jim’s approach challenges leaders to renew their individual leadership beliefs and engage in meaningful dialog with their colleagues to turn those beliefs into actions that increase performance and create positive work environments.
Jim has over 25 years working in organizations in a variety of roles: first as a systems engineer, then team and organizational leader and for the past 12 years as an external coach and facilitator. Jim served as Vice President of Bluepoint Leadership Development before launching his own coaching and facilitation business.

Jim has a Master’s Degree in Applied Behavioral Science from the Leadership Institute of Seattle and is a certified coach through the Hudson Institute. Jim’s presence is engaging and direct; and yet he knows the work is not about him, but about the leaders he works with, who then go forward with a renewed sense of passion and purpose for their own leadership goals.
