Hi, this is James Gray

Over the course of my career, I have found that the work you do and how it integrates with your broader life has a significant influence on your happiness, success, and freedom. Time is the most valuable resource we have and one day it will run out. My superpower is helping people shape a unique career strategy and accelerating change to a path where they thrive.

Many people struggle to find the unique work they love to do and reach their full potential. With a personalized career strategy and expert coaching to accelerate change, you’ll thrive in a craft and journey that delivers the rewards most important to you.

Thank you for choosing this self-directed course to learn effective strategies and techniques that I proved at Microsoft and have applied throughout my career. It represents a culmination of my work and passion since 2006. It started as a Word document to capture the words behind the career strategy workshops that I ran at Microsoft. I wanted a way to capture what I learned throughout my career to share with my colleagues and kids to ideally save them time. I hope you find this course valuable and I look forward to hearing your feedback that you can share in each course lecture.

I love meeting and helping interesting people by sharing my experiences or connecting them with people in my LinkedIn network. Please reach out through this course, on LinkedIn, or email at [email protected].
