Hi. I’m Jim Tait, and this where I write about, well… executice coaching & development and life in Knoxville, Tennessee. One of the coolest things about my job is the unique opportunity to speak with and visit HR professionals and leaders across numerous businesses and industries. I listen, synthesize, and then project to 2013. I’m not trying to be Ms.Cleo; just trying to think ahead. When I’m not agitating here, I’m agitating my wife De Ann, our five kids, or the dog. I’m also the lucky founder of the Executive Coaching Corporation which is headquartered here in Knoxville, Tennessee, and has served companies and individuals in multiple industries since 1999. Prior to this, I worked at Union Carbide, ABB, and AlliedSignal in various Operations and HR roles.
