To schedule Jim for direct personal coaching here are the guidelines.
The purpose of the coaching is for YOU to be able to achieve more on your own after accessing Jim’s support. It’s not about him but about what YOU can do with what he provides to you.
We have found that the following arrangement works best for most clients.
  • Coaching is done in a three or six-month process. The fee is payable in advance and renewable upon agreement. (One time sessions can also be arranged.)
  • This begins with an in-person meeting or Skype-style extended video consultation to: assess your goals and needs, identify the best format for helping you and determine how success will be measured. Jim will request certain information from you in advance to assure that this meeting is highly effective.
  • The initial in-person meeting is the big one; this is where Jim will help you clarify exactly where you stand in relation to your desired outcomes and how you can best get there. He’ll give you abundant reasons to believe in yourself more strongly and to see opportunities you may have overlooked or brushed off. You will leave this meeting encouraged to go for it as never before.
  • Following the first meeting the process shifts to telephone and email contacts. This allows you to have Jim’s support “On Tap” for quick replies and spontaneous input before a meeting or speech as well as for scheduled contact.
  • If some of Jim’s learning systems or materials relate directly to your coaching needs deep discounts can be applied within the coaching agreement.
  • The responsibility for action and follow through is always on you not on Jim. He won’t be calling to remind you nor nagging you about performance. His role is to give you expert advice, strategic counsel and the encouragement to do what you choose to do.
  • Contact, after the initial meeting, is flexible and can be reasonably rescheduled as appropriate. In the event of multiple missed appointments we reserve the right to consider the coaching agreement completed. If Jim Cathcart is responsible for an unreasonable number of missed appointments a refund of up to half the coaching fee may be made.
  • The coaching fee is set at dramatically less than Jim’s speaking fees (currently up to $25,000 for a day) therefore we reserve the right to reschedule coaching in order to accomodate paid speaking engagements.
  • FEES for coaching vary based on the nature of the assignment but are typically around $2,500 for a one month assignment or $2,000 monthly for a three month process. Payments can be arranged via automatic credit card charge or PayPal if agreeable to both parties. Note: For clients who just want some “right now” guidance we can often arrange for a one-time Skype video or telephone session for a smaller fee.
Contact us today to discuss adding Jim as your personal/professional coach. Call 805-777-3477 or email us at info@cathcart.com.

    “There are rare meetings in our lives, when we meet someone very special. When Jim and I met, I knew firstly that he had uniquely effective qualities that would take him to the peak of his profession, and secondly, I learned enough travelling with him across the our nation for several days, that I wanted to watch his very special qualities unfold, and at the same time make him a lifelong friend. Jim Cathcart is a remarkable man which you will discover when you meet him.” October 13, 2008

    Randy Pennington

    , Owner, Pennington Performance Group (business partner)
    was with another company when working with you

    “What makes Jim Cathcart different from any of the thousands of professional speakers and business authors in the marketplace today? The answer, for me, comes down to three things: (1) Jim is an original and deep thinker. Jim raises questions, provides insights, and challenges you to grow beyond the obvious to make you and your business truly distinctive. (2) Jim is the consumate professional. He has every award and certification available in the speaking profession. Now there are lots of people with awards and certifications, but Jim is that rare professional who continues to do all of the little things that earned him all the awards in the first place. (3) Jim has the ability to effectively operate at the strategic and tactical levels. There are those who do a great job at the strategic questions of what and why, but can’t help you implement. And, there are those who can help you with skills, but have no clue if the competencies are being applied in the proper context to achieve a strategic goal. Jim is unique in his ability to do both, and that makes him a valuable resource for you and your organization. Randy Pennington Author, Results Rule!

    “Jim Cathcart has always been at the top of my list of most admired people. He has the best grasp on how relationships equal business and personal success. He is a great speaker/trainer/consultant and author of “How to Create & Grow High-Value Relationships.” And not to be one to be left behind in the technology dust, he is an active blogger as well as a heck of singer and guitar player.

    was a consultant or contractor to you

    “I have worked with hundreds of sales experts, authors and speakers during the past 26 years and have never come across someone like Jim Cathcart. When he speaks, you can hear a pin drop in the room. Why? Because his message comes from a rare universe that’s filled with compelling stories, powerful analogies and infinite wisdom. But that’s not all. Jim truly enjoys his time on earth to the fullest, he’s developed his abilities to the fullest and he’s one of the special few who can claim to live a life that’s meaningful and fulfilling. He’s risen to the highest level of his profession and today he doesn’t care what the world thinks of him. What he cares most about is what he can give back to the world. It is a rare privilege to work with Jim. I recommend that you get to know Jim, and if you don’t believe that Jim is everything I said he is, I will introduce you to two knockout Vegas showgirls. This offer expires 4/1/2045 Gerhard Gschwandtner” May 19, 2008
