Jim Whitt is an unapologetic people provoker. For many years Jim has provoked people and organizations to reach their full potential.
As a speaker, he provokes people to thought and laughter (kind of a cross between Dr. Phil and Jeff Foxworthy).
Jim provokes leaders to create cultures where people are self-motivated.
Jim provokes with proven processes to help you improve your life and your organizations.
Jim’s people-provoking career was birthed from the discovery of his purpose in life (to help people reach their full potential).
He spent more than a decade in sales and marketing with two Fortune 500 companies. Jim grew up working in the cattle business and has a degree in animal science.
All of this provides him with a unique perspective into human behavior which he has applied to develop his unconventional approach to transforming lives, leaders and organizations.
Motivation…The Transformational Power of Purpose:
Any animal can be trained using reward (the carrot) and punishment (the stick). Purpose is the only thing that engages the human spirit and empowers us to rise above our animal natures to become self-motivated.
Learn how purpose is the key to reaching our full potential and living a fulfilled and happy life.
Leadership…Riding for the Brand: The Power of Purposeful Leadership
In the old west, a brand not only identified a ranch’s cattle, it was a symbol of pride and loyalty for all of its cowboys – they rode for the brand.
People today want more from their work than a paycheck – they want to be partners in a cause. Like cowboys of yesteryear they want to ride for the brand.
Learn how leaders and organizations are transformed through The Power of Purposeful Leadership.
Change…The Power of Purposeful Change:
All animals are creatures of habit. But human beings are the only animals that can choose to change. Unlike old dogs, humans can learn new tricks when they understand the principles involved in creating new patterns of behavior. Learn the key to evolving and succeeding in a rapidly changing world.
Armed with a degree in animal science, Jim Whitt has combined the principles of human behavior with the principles of animal behavior to come up with what he calls Cowboy Psychology. Cowboy Psychology revolves around his basic tenet of human motivation: Without a purpose our only motivation is reward and punishment. Any animal can be manipulated using the extrinsic stimuli of reward and punishment. Purpose is the only stimulus that engages the human spirit and empowers us to rise above our animal natures to become intrinsically motivated. This sets us on the path to reaching our full potential.
