Jim Whitt

  • Best Described as a Cross Between Dr. Phil and Jeff Foxworthy
  • Cowboy and Speaker on Purpose & Motivation

On the platform Jim might be best described as a cross between Dr. Phil and Jeff Foxworthy. Oklahoma cowboy speaker and psychologist, makes people think and laugh … all at the same time. Jim's presentations are fun, fast-paced and punctuated with his unique brand of humor that draws on his rural roots.  Jim may be the only management consultant you'll meet who has a degree in animal science. That, coupled with a lifetime of working in the cattle industry, has enabled him to develop a unique approach to personal and organizational development that revolves around his basic tenet of human behavior: Without a purpose our only motivation is reward and punishment. His purpose in life is "To help people reach their full potential and their Purpose."

After graduating with a degree in animal science, Jim became a top producing salesman and marketing executive with two Fortune 500 companies. In 1988 Jim discovered his purpose in life: "To help people reach their full potential." That discovery transformed his life and led him to dedicate his life to help transform lives, leaders and organizations through the power of Purpose.
