Jim Lee’s leadership experience emerged from the traditional large corporate top-down management. During his 11 years working for several Fortune 10 telecommunications companies, he strove to bring out the best in his teams through empowerment and organizational health. Jim’s career success proved counter-culturally that great accomplishments can come as a byproduct of secure, confident, and humble employees that were led by influence, not positional power. He has helped start many companies, non-profits, and business units using these principles effectively and moved into consulting so that now everyone can be successful with his help.
Currently, Jim enjoys multiplying positive team culture and changing the way people lead using B-SPOKE as a platform for leadership transformation. His clients include employees from large tech, nonprofit organizations, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and small businesses. Jim’s focus is helping people break through their barriers of influence so that they can “Be Heard, Be Seen, and Be Known”. Everyone has blind spots and relies on their strengths too much, creating a breakdown in team-building and muted voices.
Outside of transforming lives, Jim volunteers his time with several nonprofit organizations, helping spread an empowering leadership culture in different communities. Jim and his wife, Jane, enjoy investing in each other and traveling on road trips across the country. They also celebrate life as much as possible with their daughter Charlotte. The family can often be found walking their feisty dog Mady in the evenings and building relationships and community with their neighbors.
