Let’s Work Together

My Process

Clients come in all shapes and sizes. My role in helping them is different depending on their needs. What remains the same for everyone I work with is how we get to the proposed solution.

1

I align myself with a company, a team, or an individual.

I meet you where you are, without judgment, without assumptions, and ready to listen.

2

Together we perform a discovery session to clarify needs

We work through a series of questions and exercises to break through any assumptions or bias and determine a clear view of your future state.

3

We determine if I am the right person to help

I make no assumptions at the beginning of a discovery call that I will be the right person to help. My goal is not to sell something or to win your business, it is to determine your needs and obstacles and determine if I am the right fit.

4

I propose a course of action

Once we are clear on what the future state is and what obstacles are in the way, I propose a way that I can work with you to reach that future state. This might require me to act as a speaker, facilitator, coach, mediator, or communication consultant. I lay out which roles I would take, when they would occur, and how they would help you get to your future state.

5

Together we work toward a solution

If at this point you decide we should work together, we begin our journey. We lay out our path, clarify costs, and determine which methods we will use to evaluate our success. Then we begin!

 

Roles I perform

Whether you are an executive, an educator, or anywhere in between I use these varied roles to help you reach your leadership, relationship, and life goals.

Speaker
I speak from my years of experience in business and improvisation. My speaking style is humorous, energetic, informative and inspiring.

Facilitator
I work with teams to bring ideas from the fringes into the light allowing everyone involved to understand, improve and enlighten their current work together.

Coach
Both individually and in small groups, I coach to remove obstacles and to prepare my clients for their desired state.

Communication and Collaboration Consultant
I can work with you, your team, and your business to evaluate your communication and collaboration and develop a strategy and tactics for improvements.

Visual Thinker
I work with select clients to design or improve visuals for their websites and presentations. These usually take the form of infographics and graphic notes.

Some of my clients have said…

David Lee
INNOVATION AT UPS
“Jim is a special contributor to a team. In addition to having a tremendously positive attitude and a good sense of humor, Jim brings desperately needed talents that literally don’t exist in most corporate environments. He can explain and visualize problems in seconds — making beautiful images appear effortlessly with a roll of paper and some markers. He is a story teller at heart — which makes his ability to convey a message and create a memorable experience first-nature to him. He is curious, he is passionate, and he is a joy to work with. There are simply not enough people like Jim in working world. My biggest regret with Jim is that we didn’t get to work on enough projects together.”

Joonki Noh
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF BANKING AND FINANCE
“I highly recommend Jim’s detailed coaching for interview and presentation preparation. He has helped me to improve my job market interviews and academic paper presentations. The outcomes from my job market are very positive and I indeed appreciate his help.”

Michelle Kabashinski
WELLNESS COACH AT YMCA OF METRO ATLANTA
“Jim Karwisch wowed us in a room full of professional and new improvisors. He was able to speak to the different levels and helped us to create a utopia, connecting with our partners and as a group. Jim showed us how easily this bubbles over onto stage and into real life. A professional coach, he is organized, fun and inventive. Anyone who has the chance to work with him will learn skills that not only help them to be a better improvisor and/or actor, but also a better human being. I am honored to have worked with Jim and hope we have many more opportunities to do so in the future.”
