Redesign Your Culture

Effective leaders compel others to reach their highest potential. In order to do that, they must first assess their own mindset, behaviors and actions. They realize their culture is created by these responses and understand the importance of building a powerful climate to inspire their team members to show up as the best version of themselves.  

Motivate People To Grow To Their Greatest Potential

Great leaders are devoted to their team’s success. They commit their time and energy to bringing out the highest potential of their people. They understand the power of this potential on team performance. They lead by example and utilize tools and strategies to support their personal and professional growth. 


Empower People To Believe In Themselves

Motivating leaders inspire people to build a better life and career. They encourage others to face adversity and overcome fear, failure, and life challenges in order to make an impact in their organization and the world. They empower rather than enable. They cultivate curiosity and leverage a growth mindset. 


If you are looking to uplevel your leadership skills or enhance your performance, Jim Stroker provides the strategies you need to begin this valuable process.

Keynote Speaker

"Jim Stroker is inspiring and motivational. He has been our opening keynote speaker the past two years. I had staff members speak to me after his first speaking appearance at our school and requested he come back to speak... And believe me, the staff is hard to please because they demand excellence and have high expectations when outside guests come into the school. Jim is so good that we are going to have him speak at the Morris County Association of Elementary and Middle School Administrators (MCAEMSA) fall conference for all Morris County educators. He is successful at tiering in events that happened in his personal life and he has excperience as a teacher, so he gets the educational world. Top notch person and speaker."

E + R = O

Events + your Response = the Outcome

The pandemic has been brutal for all of us, and it’s clear we have gone through a traumatic event with Covid- 19. Our nervous systems have clicked into sympathetic mode and if we are not careful, that anxiousness and nervousness will linger changing our lives forever. 

And not for the better.

So how are you going to choose calm over chaos and reset? Will you just continue down a path filled with anxiety and feeling overwhelmed? Or will you decide to reset your mindset with the power of awareness, optimism, and gratitude?

You can either decide to allow your growing anxiety to steal your dreams or you can choose that despite the hardships of the pandemic, you have the power to control what happens in the space between your ears.

Your mind. 

In order to develop this growth mindset which will allow you to manage your emotions and live your life despite the challenges you face,  you need a formula. 

That is exactly what you will get when you learn the powerful equation E+R=O.

Join Coach Stroker in one of his motivational workshops and be prepared to uncover a deep awareness which will transform how you approach your life. But it’s not just about changing your life, it’s about enhancing your human experience, and allowing you to become the very best version of yourself. 

"After listening to and working with Jim, you will feel empowered to face the world."
