    Our Speaker:

    Jim Mellon has over 25 years of experience in various aspects of leadership and motivation, ranging from leading special operations teams during his time in the military, to collegiate and semi-pro athletics, to running his own businesses.  He has experience with leadership development, sales and sales force development, success coaching, relationship management, and is especially knowledgeable about creating additional business opportunities through the use of strategic alliances.

    Having lived through the problems experienced by many business leaders, he has intimate knowledge of the stresses caused by not having an effective team. Jim is committed to helping as many others as possible get rid of those headaches. He has worked closely with Larry G. Linne, author of “Make the Noise Go Away”, and with Michael V. Pantalon, Ph.D., author of “Instant Influence: How to Get Anyone to Do Anything - Fast”.

    Jim has been certified to train the “Noise Reduction System” of leadership and team development, and by Dr. Pantalon to train both the Instant Influence method, and the Certified Progressive Recovery Coach curriculum.  He helps businesses develop their people, and has even functioned as an interim, non-employee second-in-command to help business owners gain clarity while their team is being developed into a cohesive unit.

    Jim is a native of Kansas City, Kansas. He attended both the University of Kansas, and MidAmerica Nazarene University, where he obtained a degree in Management and Human Relations (Applied Organizational Leadership). He is a long-time resident of Overland Park, where he lives with his wife Kristin and their three sons. He is a partner in two businesses; Katalyst Systems, Inc., an executive coaching and consulting firm, and Fiat Insurance and Risk Management.
