James is an engaging individual! I enjoyed James’ presentation style and was impressed by his ability to read the audience so quickly. I honestly believe he had most of room (including me) “personality pegged” almost immediately!
“You could not ask for a more inspiring person than James, for mentoring you and your family. Or taking it to a larger level and having him mentoring your business. He is a man of many words, the words that we all need to hear…”

“When I worked with James a few years back, I had no idea about his history of outstanding accomplishments. In retrospect, it’s no surprise that he’s not only knowledgeable as a coach, but he knows how to elicit strategies that work to get real results. Thank you James!”

James is totally dedicated and fully committed to serving and delivering the intended outcomes for each client. I fully endorse James in his work and as a man of great integrity.”
“I hired James as a coach for my personal and professional needs. He was always very positive and creative in his approaches to meeting my goals. As a result of working with James, I have found a wonderful spouse and created the life I always dreamed was possible.”
“Thanks for another great year of coaching! I’m sure you’ll want to give me all the credit, but considering what I’ve gone through this year, without your help I may have ended up divorced, unemployed, and in foreclosure. Instead, I’m standing on the brink of the most spectacular year of my life!”
“You’ve been very supportive during a transitional time. [You] gave me tools and taught me methods to deal with my overwhelm. Looking back, without your help, I would have given up and would have stuck with status quo.[…] By the way, check out the title under my name, “VP” ? I want you to know that you have a huge part on that…”
“James has done a wonderful job for me as my coach. He is knowledgeable about his profession. He truly cares about his clients. James is very “real” – he will share his own experiences so that I can learn from what he has done. I truly appreciate James for all the ways he has helped my personal success.”
“James is organized, caring, capable, and has tremendous suggestions to address all types of personal problems that arise in life. He is especially good at helping people deal with phobias. As your coach, he helps monitor your progress. I have known him for more than ten years, and I give him my highest possible character reference.”
“Awesome coach […] always available to support and offer his insights to help you grow as a person and in my endeavors. His insight was invaluable as I dealt with personnel losses, changes in careers and developing new contacts and business relationships! I highly recommend his expertise, advise and support you anyone seeking to better themselves!”
“James is an excellent executive coach and his attention to the detail is top notch. If you are looking for someone that will get you tangible results he is well worth the time and financial investment. Be forewarned, you will need to be as committed as he is in attaining your outcomes otherwise do not waste your time.”
“James is an excellent business and life coach. He has helped me achieve some lofty business and personal goals in the past year and I am continually amazed how the accountability and his insightful suggestions can make such a difference in the likelihood that I will stay on track for accomplishing the things that are important, but difficult for me. Hiring James has been a great investment for me!”
“James, This has been an amazing and awesome adventure having you as my personal coach. As a result of your coaching, I found my Dream Job in two months! After I lost my wife to cancer you helped put my life into perspective. Your uncanny ability to ask the right question blows me away. Your coaching gave me the confidence and enthusiasm to reach deep inside and become the person I knew I could be. Thanks always.”
“James has been my personal and business coach for the last 5 years. The reason I continue to use his services is I continue to see the value in what he does. In working with James I have found him to be one of the most passionate, honest and caring people I have ever met. If you are looking to get to the next level in your business or are just looking to live a more happy and fulfilling life I would strongly recommend giving his services a try.”
“James is a great listener and doesn’t have all the answers. Does anybody? He does however get you explore the possibilities with just about any issue, predicament or challenge. I spent many sessions with James after my Robbins Research experiences. He guided and assisted me with applying what was presented so i wasn’t so overwhelmed. We broke it down to workable “chunks”. Thanks soooooo very much James!!”
“I am impressed with James’ deep knowledge of psychology, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and human thought processes in general. I highly recommend him as a coach. He’s a great fit for leaders and executives who are searching for their next challenge or who know what their next challenge is but want help cutting through the noise to tackle it more effectively. James can really help you sort through the “voices” in your head!”
“James’ SureHire Behavioral Assessment has been invaluable to me and my company. It has helped us hire and retain the best employees for COMM Engineering. His knowledge, professionalism and quality service motivates me even more to use his services.
His work with me as a Business Coach has greatly improved my performance, understanding of people and increased company profits.
I highly recommend James Murphy!”
“Before working with James, my fear of fireworks was almost debilitating. It was frustrating and I found it very hard to communicate where my fear stemmed from. Initially I was very skeptical, but it worked!! After one session with James, I was able to relax with friends and enjoy the fireworks on the 4th of July without crying and being scared! It feels great knowing I am not missing out on good times with friends or living in fear anymore. Thanks James!!!”
“I have had the opportunity to know James from both a professional and personal perspective. From a professional point-of-view I know him to be a practiced communicator with excellent training and experience in the art and science of life coaching. From a personal perspective I see him as a sincere individual who has had a broad range of life experiences and is eager to share his professional knowledge and lessons learned with those who can benefit from them.”
“James is an amazing coach. It doesn’t matter what my challenge is, James has the skills, ability, and heart to help me. He seems to always know the right question to ask or the right thing to say. The fact that James has advanced training in coaching and NLP is a definite advantage over other coaches.
If anyone is struggling to design the life s/he deserves and wants to make lasting changes toward accomplishing goals, I would highly recommend working with James!”
“James has been instrumental and helping me and a few other family members break thru some of the limiting beliefs and other mindset issues that were preventing us from reaching the life we had mapped out in our LifeBook. Since hiring James as my coach and accountability partner about 5 months ago, I’ve lost 20 lbs, doubled my business revenue (and team size), reignited my love relationship, and found a completely new level of happiness and spiritual connection. If there’s something you’re not achieving… I’m confident James can help you break thru it quickly.”
“As a busy executive, travel is a necessary part of my job. Claustrophobia has crippled me in the past, even to where I would get on a plane, be ready to go, and just have to get off. I missed a few meetings because of this over time. James walked me through a ‘double dissociation’ process that is still powerful over a year later. The best part – I’ve had zero challenges flying! It’s actually amazing, years of stress and panic is a distant past. I even had the pleasure of taking the family to Maui with no challenges. I highly recommend James.”
“After taking and issuing dozens of behavioral tests, it was refreshing to get a deeper look into our candidate’s behavior. I feel this service is extremely valuable for companies who are vested in their employees, as well as their business as a whole. It’s one thing to read or scan a DiSC® report, but Evolution for Success provided targeted insight into how candidate’s characteristics would meld within our culture, expectations, and our individual traits. I plan on utilizing the same service for each new hire, as our most valuable asset is our employees.”
“As a business owner, parent & spouse it is challenging to be highly effective in all the roles in my life. I hired James to be my personal coach more than 10 years ago and I have consistently relied on his guidance since then.
This is not enough room to write the words to describe the awesome counsel I have received over the years both personally and professionally.
If you are worth the investment, then you need to invest in having James keep you on the path to become the best “You” possible.
Thanks James for being there always to support and challenge me to be the best I can be. I am very fortunate to have you as my coach.”
“I highly recommend James as a coach in living your life more effectively. I have worked with James for about 14 years now. His life coaching has involved both my business and my personal life. His commitment to my moving forward has been awesome. He is highly trained in many different areas – using whatever tool at his disposal is best for the situation. I now consider James one of my best friends, but you should take that as an indication of his personality, commitment and ability, not as a bias of this recommendation. 🙂 Seriously, if you’re looking for a life coach – you won’t find one better than James. Feel free to contact me for more details, My time is valuable but I am happy to have a conversation with anyone considering using James because I know he’ll make a difference for you.”
“James Murphy is a personal coach who listens and can help you with a myriad of challenges. He walks the talk. I speak first hand as one who has experienced his one-on-one coaching first hand. This was a few years ago and I still put his techniques to use in my life today. The purpose of the successful coaching was to maximize my time. It has worked. My real estate investing is successful. I spend a day a week with my energetic and curious granddaughter.
Now for the bonus: The example of physical wellness and top fitness that James maintains rubbed off on me. We never coached about fitness but his presence and testimony influenced me to run 2 half marathons. My eating program has boosted my energy and immune system and I continue to incorporate fitness into my life.
My advice: quit thinking about working together with James and just do it! The results will put your life in a great place my friends. Here’s to your health and your success. Thank you James Murphy!”
“I worked with James monthly for several years, and simply put, James helped me to become the best version of myself. And while that may actually be a life-long proposition, the amount of personal and professional growth I made while working with James dwarfs the growth I have made in any other period of my life.
As a teacher I was passionate about helping other teachers to improve, and I realized that my impact as an instructional leader would be far greater as a principal. James helped me identify the shifts–the changes in behavior patterns and limiting beliefs–that I would need to make in order to be successful as both an assistant principal and as principal of several schools, and then guided me through those changes masterfully.
I even invested in an entire coaching day with James—the results of which I am still enjoying years later! I still schedule the occasional “tune-up” session with James when I know his highly-developed professional perspective will help me navigate some new bump in the road.
Invest in yourself, and let James help you become the best version of yourself!”
