Jim’s session turned out to be a high point of our 2-day event. The team deeply appreciated this focus on their well-being, and many folks commented to me on the power of Jim’s personal story. I’m very happy we did it and I would recommend it to others.
Jim's Happiness Workshop was a tremendous experience. I highly recommend to others that they do this!
Great content. Every early stage company and manager should hear this. Seriously.
Thoroughly enjoyed Jim McCarthy’s Happiness Workshop, which introduced new, thought-provoking lessons. Already find myself adopting several of the practices every day. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an impactful and self-reflective session.
Jim is an amazing source of wisdom about sourcing, evaluating, hiring, training, motivating and mentoring teams. He built and ran two very high performance, valuable teams for me while we were at BlueLithium and Yahoo! together. I can’t recommend him strongly enough to companies looking to get more out of their employees.
The work we did in Jim’s workshop was an unexpected joy. It helped me to feel renewed gratitude for the life I’ve been able to live and that I’m living now.
Jim’s methodical style balances his secret-sauce “stress” questions we’ve learned to ask, which have proven invaluable in sussing out the best candidates.
If you hope to be successful, don’t think twice, Jim is worth every penny.
“Jim’s Happiness Workshop not only taught us the many benefits of increasing our happiness levels, but he also shared simple, practical methods that we can use every day to achieve this goal. The feedback after the workshop was overwhelmingly positive, and I highly recommend Jim’s workshop for anyone looking for a transformational experience.”
I always stood in amazement at Jim’s ability to build a world-class operations team. Honestly, I thought it was magic. I am glad that he’s given me the foundational keys for building successful teams.
Simple, yet powerful. It was the perfect closing for our Panama YPO presidential retreat.
