YPO / WPO
Jim Warner is currently a WPO member in the Rocky Mountain Chapter. From 1987 to 1994 he was a member of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of YPO and an active member of a forum. After selling his software company in 1992 he entered both his grace period within YPO and a three-year sabbatical, seeking to reconnect with his family after 12 intense years in business, and also to refine his vocational calling. During this sabbatical Jim was invited to facilitate forum retreats for YPO friends in other chapters, and discovered this facilitation work was an excellent fit with his talents and his vocational mission to inspire and guide high achievers.
Since 1995 Jim has facilitated over 200 YPO and WPO member and spouse forum retreats around the globe. In 1997 Jim, with YPO champion Jeffrey Ullman of the Santa Monica Bay Chapter, launched the first YPO Navigating Transitions seminar Since then Jim has led 14 YPO Transition seminars in North America, Europe, and Asia.
Jim's books, Aspirations of Greatness and Facing Pain—Embracing Love, are based on the stories of over 2,000 YPOers and another 300 spouses navigating difficult midlife transitions. Since the release of the first book, and the subsequent audio series When Having It All Isn't Enough, Jim has become a regular speaker at YPO chapter events, area conferences, and universities.
Often, alumni of Jim's forum retreats or transitions seminars, or attendees at a YPO education event, will retain Jim or an OnCourse Associate to guide them through a difficult personal or marital transition. Personal breakthroughs are often achieved in an intensive, personalized retreat setting, and sustained through ongoing coaching with an OnCourse Associate. Some YPOers then retain Jim or an Associate to inspire similar changes in their companies
