Jim Young

Burnout Coach for Men & Organizations




Jim Young is an executive coach who works with leaders to root out the burnout in their lives and their businesses. Whether coaching a corporate leader, guiding a team through deep discovery, or giving a talk to a large audience, Jim activates audiences and creates powerful learning environments via a potent blend of his experience as a corporate executive, grounded expert research, and his background as an improv comedian.

In his book, Expansive Intimacy: How "Tough Guys" Defeat Burnout, Jim takes a bold and deep look at the forces that have locked men into unhealthy patterns. Through a blend of research and stories, including many of his own, Jim vulnerably and scientifically normalizes the challenges men face in modern society. He then turns around and offers a previously unexplored roadmap that leads men into the fulfilling lives that society’s default rules for men have failed to deliver.

After graduating from the UMass Isenberg School of Management, Jim embarked on a 25-year career in the ranks of corporate leadership. After enduring an extended period of burnout, Jim took the leap and started the business of his dreams in 2018. Through extensive training--via the Coaches Training Institute and the Daniel Goleman Emotional Intelligence program, among others--he has built a thriving practice working with individuals, teams, and organizations to help them create better relationships and organizational cultures.
