Jim Warner helps you get clear on what you really want.

Personal Transformations

Inspiring and Guiding You through Core-Level, Whole-Life Transformation

Jim Warner and the OnCourse team offer an integrated suite of diagnostic assessments, transformational retreats, life-planning sessions, and ongoing coaching that help individuals, couples, and families realize and sustain greater self-awareness, more authentic relationships, and a deeper engagement with life.

Many of our clients are in a place of transition, contemplating what's next in their lives. Others feel stuck, blocked, or are struggling with vexing dilemmas or strained relationships. All seek authenticity and are open to examining all aspects of their lives.

If you choose to work with us we will guide you in exploring and making commitments about:

  • Your identity: your values, your beliefs, and how you show up in the world
  • Your relationships: the authenticity and fulfillment in your connections with others
  • Your sense of meaning: your life purpose and what you really want

    After 22 years of working in and running my family’s business, I was worn out. Our top line was growing, but our bottom line wasn’t. We were making mistakes and I was frustrated. Jim challenged me to re-focus my efforts from working in my business to working on my business, and the change has been dramatic. His ability to probe and ask the right questions inspired me to adopt a focus on our company culture that has been transformational for me and our team members. He has changed my life.
