Jim Black, CCTC - Career & Life Coach
Meet Clarity Coach Jim
I am dedicated to guiding mid-to-late-career professionals toward more fulfilling careers, helping them deal with the challenges of the job search, and making sure they succeed! As a certified life and career coach, with a diverse career history (consultant, tech program manager, university professor, higher-education career advisor, and now, career coach), I am able to connect with people from all walks of life, on a variety of career paths. Regarding your own career journey, I get it. It’s easy to think that you don’t have the skills, experience, or education to get the job you want… But you probably do. It’s also easy to lack confidence and avoid talking with someone about what you really want. However, it's important that you know: you deserve a meaningful life. And it’s not just about career or work. It’s about creating a life that works for you. That's where I come into the picture. I’m your trained "second set of eyes" to look at the big picture and help you see how it all fits together for you! Let’s figure out what you have, what you need and what really gets you excited. Then let’s make a plan of attack and get you there as quickly and efficiently as possible.

I am dedicated to helping people unlock their potential and redefine success. As a Certified Professional Coach, I can help you truly identify and articulate your natural talents and strengths, overcome common obstacles that arise during career transition (ie. imposter syndrome, perfectionism, burnout) and create a professional brand to market yourself to employers.
We will use a blend of coaching techniques and proven psychometric assessments to create a roadmap for your job search. I am a champion of potential, a non-judgmental partner with a caring but direct style who will help you gain clarity on your gifts and take intentional action to meeting your goals. I have 20 years of global experience in sales, general management, employee experience and people development. I currently hold coaching certifications from Co-Active Training Institute, International Coaching Federation, Gallup’s CliftonStrengths, Predictive Index Talent Optimization. I believe in constantly honing my craft and will receive certifications with the Leadership Circle Profile and Insights Discovery by March 2023. I have a 4.5 year old daughter who challenges me to be a better person and make meaningful choices at work and in life every day. I look forward to connecting.

Moms Returning to Work: Balance & Identity
As my Clarity Coach, Jim guided me through a frightening and difficult transition in my professional career. His compassion, understanding, and depth of professional skills, gave me the courage to persevere and achieve my professional dreams and self-fulfillment. Jim helped me clarify the obstacles that were preventing me from believing in myself. He walked beside me, guiding me and supporting me as I learned to let go of the limitations and fear that had held me back for years from reaching my potential. I am grateful to have had him as my Clarity Coach!
- Sara, Career Changer
I came to Danni looking for some guidance as I changed fields, but could not have predicted the positive impact that her sessions would have in such a short period of time. I came to Danni for leadership coaching, but have seen firsthand the power behind first understanding yourself. Even after our first few sessions, I left with tangible tools to control stress, find joy in my day-to-day, and now have the ability to articulate the life and career that I truly want to create. Danni has an incredible way of making you feel seen, listened to, supported, and has an unwavering commitment to her clients. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner! Danni has allowed me to gain a new perspective around what's possible in life and I can't thank her, or recommend her, enough!
- Laura, Leadership Development Client
Not many people discuss the identity shift that occurs after you have a child. I was not fully prepared and struggled returning back to work was especially challenging. I felt as though I wore two sets of pants—work identity versus home identity. There were many days I felt as though I was just scratching the surface and either holding back a part of myself at work or not doing enough as a new mother. Cue the guilt! Flash forward six months later…I shifted roles, got a promotion, transitioned to a new product within my company and couldn’t be happier. Danni has an uncanny ability to identify, empathize and define what I was experiencing at that time. She worked with me to help me uncover my strengths, and where I want and should invest my time. Through some exercises and reflection, she pushed me to discover what brings me energy so that I can walk out the door feeling fulfilled and know I am adding value in every aspect of my life.
- Rose, Working Mom Coaching
Danni has helped me become a more confident, thoughtful and focused leader. She is a world-class listener and communicator, and has helped me with realizations that I couldn't have possibly arrived at alone. Danni deeply understands the value of mental and emotional fitness to achieve peak performance, and has created a safe, yet goal oriented, space for me to work on myself. I would recommend Danni to anyone looking to become a better version of themselves; a stronger leader, thinker and doer!
- Jason, Leadership Development Coaching
I loved working with Danni because she helped me clarify and articulate personal and professional goals & values and reconnect with what was important to me...which helped move my career forward in a very short period of time.
