Hi Jim, I felt the need to take a few minutes to express my thanks and appreciation for what you've done for me and my co-workers through the Leadership Development Program. For the first time in many years I see positive change in attitudes and relationships in the work place. Although I feel we still have a long way to go, it's nice to know and feel I can now pretty much talk to anyone about anything and get a general feeling of caring and consideration. I also, for the first time, have become very committed to bettering myself. I feel sorry for those who seem unwilling or unable to change but the vast majority is overwhelmingly better for having taking the program. I truly thank you and keep up the good work.

Global Manufacturing Company
Sapphire Consulting is the most effective training consultant that we have used. Jim Kimberly brings passion, energy and humor to the job and really understands our people and our company. He doesn't train 'by the book'. He's willing to look at what works and what doesn't work for our company or even for individual groups and then he customizes his training to meet our needs.

Sapphire Consulting has been a great partner to me as I've sought out coaching support for individuals with needs in leadership development or behavior change. In those engagements I was pleased with the approach and the results. Jim Kimberly uses tools and one-on-one conversations to get a person to understand their strengths and weaknesses and come to a self-realization about behavioral issues that were causing difficulties. His practical, approachable style really resonates with people.
