Jim is the John L. Colley Professor of Business Administration at the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration and a Professor of Public Policy at the Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, both at the University of Virginia. His writing on workplace courage and related topics is grounded in decades of formal research and brought to life based on intimate portraits of leaders and ordinary people he’s come to know personally. Jim thrives on empowering people to have difficult conversations, engage rather than avoid challenging situations, and competently embrace other opportunities for courageous action in their own lives and workplaces.
