We were fortunate to begin our relationship with Jim during a transitional period of our business, having recently been acquired.   Jim, having spent the majority of his career building and leading successful companies within our industry, knows specifically the challenges, large and small, we face on a daily basis.  Not only has he helped us with known challenges; he has guided us in planning and preparing for challenges we have yet to face.  Our business can be “very noisy.”  His straightforward and confident guidance helps us quiet “the noise,” and allows us to focus on what we want to become.  His honesty, transparency, and high integrity makes it very easy to build trust.  His enthusiasm and passion to see our team succeed and our people grow both personally and professionally has energized our entire company.  I very much look forward to our continued relationship and give Jim my highest endorsement.

As we looked to see how we could grow, we realized two things: there was some dysfunction in our organization that needed to be addressed and we needed to grow our leadership team as our core members were running at full capacity.  Jim has been instrumental in guiding us in our journey. One of the things I like most is that he provided input based on his years of experiences, but understands that we must own OUR process versus him just preaching various ways for us to manage. Working with Rounded Development is well worth the time, energy and financial investment. I wish we would have done this many years ago!

Jim has a real talent for using positive leadership to enforce ideals that create an environment for fostering personal development and leadership.  I would not be in the position today to lead a great team if not for Jim’s influence.  Positive leaders look for strengths instead of focusing on deficits, and our team was able to utilize his principles to really focus on what we did well while correcting performance gaps.  Jim has such a positive passion and energy around personal development and creating leaders and I am fortunate to be able to have spent time with him getting his perspective.

I have been using all of the things Jim taught me even without my management role in the office. I still reiterate and use the things that he showed me about healthy confrontation, and I wanted to take the time to reiterate my thanks because I just used it today with our team!

There is a respectable level of accountability that one receives when working with Jim on leadership development. You cannot expect more unless you are willing to invest in yourself and take the process seriously. He gave me the tools, resources, and confidence to change the leadership paradigm in my office. This change has led directly to better employee retention, a culture of personal development, and a team that comes to work fired up to attack our shared goals.

Jim is knowledgeable on organizational structure and automating systems. He helped us get our business set up in Quickbooks and trained my son on how to use it so he could help with the business paperwork. Jim has been available any time we had questions and helped us find the best solutions for our business. We would highly recommend Jim to others! Look up Rounded Development on Facebook for more info.

I had the privilege of attending the leadership seminar. It was eye opening, reassuring and very informative. I love how real Jim is. He is motivating to a degree I cannot fully emphasize. He is passionate about his training and your benefit from the program. Highly recommend attending any of his training programs.

The impact of working with Jim Round is life changing and permanent.  He gave me the tools, resources, and network to help me create a leadership plan, process, and timeline to help take my career to the next level.  The competency and 360 feedback assessments gave me a great framework to understand my strengths but also the areas that I needed to develop through a personal development plan.  Jim's mentorship through this process has not only helped me personally but has allowed me to better understand how to develop my team.

Jim has not only helped develop me and my team in a number of important areas (presentation training, financial acumen, succession planning) but was also a big part of helping us build trust and confidence in each other to be a stronger and healthier team with an incredible work environment and culture.

Jim is the most inspiring leader I have ever met. His track record of developing people, leadership in business, and philanthropic works speaks for itself. His impact also extends well beyond the office walls into the lives of everyone he meets. He's inspired thousands of people to live with passion and be the best version of themselves, myself included.
