I have never been more comfortable and confident in business since appointing James as the company’s mentor and confidant. I am readily able to discuss any business matter with James on a regular basis and receive a direct opinion and information, to enable me to address any issues at hand. James will then hold me accountable with regular follow ups to ensure the desired outcome is achieved.
James has a unique ability to put himself in the shoes of the business owners he works with. His forthright advice, broad management skills and exceptional people skills ensure James engages with his clients and their businesses at all levels.
I met James during his time at as TEC Chair and immediately connected. Over the coming years I have engaged James to assist in M&A activity and business strategy advice. I will often call James to bounce ideas and he has an open invitation to attend our Management meetings and share his wealth of experience.
We first engaged Next Move during a period of significant change and restructure. Over the coming months and years we have continued to utilise the services of James and Next move to provide executive coaching and mentoring services. James has the skill of seeing the big picture and implementing the strategy and plan to achieve. We will continue to engage James and highly recommend this talented individual.
We have excellent individuals in our management team, but we needed to focus on greater teamwork through a common vision and shared values. Throughout the consulting process James has provided invaluable assistance in helping us to break down silos, develop respect for each other, and advance a vision for the future. James is highly professional individual, great to work with, and we will continue to seek his counsel to achieve our goals.
James is simply the best at what he does.
As the CEO of a National business I appreciate the time and opportunity to share issues and concerns with my Executive coach. James Darling has been that person since 2012. I feel I have a trusted resource in James and our conversation will often take me to places that force me to review my own thinking. James now provides executive coaching services to my executive management team and we haven’t looked back. He knows his stuff.
James brings a unique insight to our business. His years of managing and leading international, national and SME’s at the highest level provide the experience, while his ability to grasp the issues quickly ensure the action. Our business operates better and our people perform better. James has this impact.
