Jim Kelley, founder of ChangeWorks Institute, is a coach, author and researcher specializing in personal development, peak performance, and success coaching. Jim is also creative director, developer and lead explorer at the Portland, Oregon-based ChangeWorks Coaching Lab, a coaching and research office focused on helping people get into and manage the flow of change in their lives. Jim has spent the last 25 years learning and developing what’s now known as the Self-Directed Change Method®.
Participants learn to practice a multi-disciplined approach to making changes and living well. “You’ll discover how to apply proven success-generating strategies that CEO’s, world-class athletes, celebrities, and everyday people around the world use to reach incredible heights of personal achievement — and how to use these tools to dramatically improve results in all areas of your life,” Jim says, “So I’ll show you how Thinking Skills + Motivation Factors = Beliefs and Knowledge that help you know what’s possible and what to do next. Imagine that..!”
Since 2009 Jim has been coaching clients from his offices in Portland, Oregon USA, and asks everyone to work on this one question: If everything were easier and more fun would that be okay?

Professional – I have spent the last 17 in executive leadership. Working to transform organizational culture and make an impact on the lives of our staff, customers and the communities that we serve. I began coaching as a leadership tool and then found that I really appreciated the Positive Psychology theory related to personal growth and organizational change. Leadwell Pacific is my private practice, allowing me to coach a very distinct clientele interested leadership growth and culture.
Training – What life has not taught me, I have worked hard to learn at school. I have enjoyed a broad educational background in liberal arts (B.S. Willamette U.), Bible college, seminary and graduate studies in Organizational Design and Systems Renewal (M.A. Seattle U.). I have completed two different professional coaching programs of study. I feel like my lived experience, professional experience and educational mastery really has prepared me to walk alongside you as an executive coach.
I’m driven to align trailblazers with their natural power and grace to go bigger. It thrills me to support people to succeed from where they are, with the amazingness of who they are, having a big ole ripple effect on the world. Not only do I help people to get out of their own way to thrive but really get behind themselves to make their life or business rock. My wide coaching passions encompass working with individuals and groups as a life and solo-entrepreneur coach as well as those touched by the challenge of cancer. I’ve been a working as a Professional Whole Person Certified Coach (WPCC) for 7 years, originally trained & certified through Coach Training World and deepening my training by becoming a Certified Cancer Journey Coach in 2014 through the Cancer Journey’s Panic to Powerful program.
Illness, death, and struggle have been lifelong transformational teachers for me. On top of personal chronic health challenges, a number of dear friends and close family have been impacted by cancer in a very short period of time in my life. Even with my own great tools as a Hospice volunteer and seasoned coach, I was challenged in a whole new way in the face of this bigness. With what seems like overwhelming challenges, by utilizing the gift of skilled support, I’ve experienced powerful personal transformation and witnessed the same in my clients. I’ve learned firsthand what it means to truly decide to be there for oneself. As a result, I want this level of transformation for every single person that reaches out to be coached by me whether they are a cancer survivor asking what now, an entrepreneur, or seeking support at a transition point in life.
Never too far from nature, telemark skiing, and amazing community, I live between two snow-capped peaks in the abundant Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. I work with clients one-on-one and partner with several organizations to offer regional and national group coaching support. Whether driven by passion or necessity, it’s an honor to support trailblazers to thrive and face the big stuff with grace. Life is too precious to not live like you mean it.
Everybody gets stuck. If you feel trapped in work that doesn’t fully engage you or, even worse, prevents you from advancing in your career or enjoying your personal life, you are not alone. Far from it, in fact. Initiating change is one of the hardest things we ever do. But to realize your highest potential and live a meaningful, fulfilling life, it’s also utterly essential.
You want the freedom to be who you are and enjoy your precious time doing what you love. But it’s easy to get trapped by a paycheck – a financial necessity that can make it hard to see the escape route, let alone the road ahead.
If this sounds familiar, it’s time you made a change.
Becoming an influential entrepreneur is about initiating big changes for yourself and your clients. But to achieve the most empowering, sustainable results, both types of change require a unique set of skills and interpersonal tools that elicit the best from you and those you serve. Easy to learn, these skills can be applied to an endless range of personal and professional applications – a ripple effect that improves every aspect of an individual’s life.
That’s where I come in.
As a three-decade veteran in the business of change, my journey began in the world of marketing and sales. Leveraging my business expertise and life experience, I transitioned into the holistic coaching arena after discovering my deepest passion: helping others achieve their best possible life – one of their choosing.
I am a serial entrepreneur and a Master Credentialed Coach (MCC). Having traveled the startup road more than five times myself, I specialize in helping business owners who operate at every level. Working side by side, we effectively organize and manage their enterprise through tools that simplify time-consuming processes and personalize their brand. I also take great pride in serving as the business owner’s BFF, especially when it comes to combating the fear and resistance that inevitably creep in as someone navigates the breakthrough pathway to success.
If you’re a business owner, my expertise can help you attract those who need you the most, convert those leads into clients, and leverage your individual talents (some of which you may not even be aware of!). The result? You’ll be able to make a powerful, quantifiable difference in the lives and businesses of your clients through a system that can be tailored to any individual, niche or process.
Unlike physical goods, there’s an extra layer to marketing intangibles. I am no stranger to selling future results. In fact, it’s one of my superpowers. It’s also a vital skill set when your business includes intangibles such as coaching or other forms of personal transformation.
My business experience and marketing background have enabled me to strategically help hundreds of luminaries, holistic healers, and soul-preneurs exactly like you. Through my consultation and support, these individuals have successfully created and marketed their products, services and programs to millions of people around the globe. You’ll find a few examples in these in my testimonials and case studies on my website.
***What you’ll gain by working with me***
Becoming an entrepreneur is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have, both financially and emotionally. Running your own business can bring you great joy. It also offers some of the most valuable spiritual lessons available (not the least of which is learning patience with new technology).
If you are looking for a smart, devoted business buddy who offers comprehensive online training programs, private mastermind groups, and one-on-one support, you’re search may be nearing its end. I could be the business strategist and marketing master you’ve been looking for. We’ll have to talk in person to find out if that’s true for you!
Working with me, you’ll learn how to book yourself solid and fill those workshop seats with your ideal clients simply by being your most magnetic self! If you’re up for the long-haul, you’ll also be writing books, building your tribe, and creating online programs, passive income streams, and workshops of your very own.
I can show you how to take your existing skill set or brand and monetize it through every available channel. Care to join me?

If I’m not in the woods, I am likely somewhere in the world filling my brain with the latest in neuroscience, marketing or yogic practices. I can’t help myself. I’m a lifelong learning junkie… and proud of it!
