Jim WarnerPersonal Transformations
Jim’s personal transformation mission is to guide committed individuals, couples, and families through core-level, whole-life transformations. He’s gone through several transformational stages and overlapping roles in his own life.
On the vocational side, he began his career as a programmer. After seven years working at the cutting edge of computer graphics technology (long before Pixar), he launched his entrepreneurial career, founding, growing, downsizing, transforming, and eventually selling his own software company.
The latter years in his company were grueling as he navigated radically changing markets, missed product opportunities, and his own self-doubt. Upon selling their first business, most entrepreneurs take a little time off and “do it all over again.” Instead, Jim chose to enter a three-year period of introspection and questioning: How could he rejuvenate relationships with his family and friends? How could he leverage his existing and latent skills and interests in a meaningful way? How could he overcome personal weaknesses that blocked his fulfillment?
During this sabbatical Jim attended several personal exploration retreats, getting clear on his strengths as an advisor and guide to individuals and couples in transition. He continues to devote 2-4 weeks per year to personal development experiences. These have included:
The Enneagram Institute Trainings
The Hoffman Quadrinity Process
The Hendricks Institute Trainings
Boulder Integral Seminars (propagating the work of Ken Wilber)
The Center for Action and Contemplation (propagating the work of Richard Rohr)
The New Warrior Training Adventure (sponsored by The Mankind Project)
Shadow Work Seminars
Young Presidents’ Organization and World Presidents’ Organization Seminars
On the personal side, Jim and Judy have navigated the joys, challenges, and transformations of a 34-year marriage, raising three children from innocence to adolescence to young adulthood.
