James Bargeron – ABOUT ME

I am an executive coach working with successful people. 

I help you by working on your mindset and the psychology of high performance.

Have written for Thrive-Global

Written for Inside Golf.

I can help you with reach your potential.

Finally I can help you with Surrey Golf magazine.

I am in the people business and have always been fascinated by what makes people tick, one person successful and another not. 

Growing up in London I set out in life not exactly sure what I wanted to do, except do something that excited me. It turned out to be a long career in oil and shipping.

Over the years I’ve discovered that in order perform at a higher level and win in life, business and sports, we have to develop a mindset, a culture of continuous improvement and winning. 

I became a student of psychology and personal excellence and my purpose has been to live to my potential and to help others do the same; but not before a whole lot of ‘life experiences’ pointed me in that direction.


I spent 3 decades in international commerce, performing under pressure and in positions of leadership, both in London and the USA. Training high performing teams and negotiating legal contracts for many of the world’s leading oil and shipping companies.

I’ve worked with and for some of the most successful people and organisations globally and the one thing that that stood out amongst them all was the quality of their thinking, their mindset.

It hasn’t always been easy and it certainly hasn’t always been rosy.

Life Happened

I’ve made plenty of mistakes and my career ended completely differently than I had envisioned.  With it came a lot of collateral damage, anxiety, stress and the mental challenges that accompany life’s failures. 

With those challenges brought new discoveries: what I had been doing wrong, what I had done well, what deficiencies I had and the things I needed to change and improve upon.

What I discovered along the way, with the pressure of expectation, is that it’s not the size of the challenge, but simply how we get through it that matters. It’s our mindset, which is something we’re not taught in school and often not prepared for.

Why I do this

As I mentioned I have always wondered what makes us tick and through the challenges I discovered the power of our minds. It controls everything and it’s either working for us or against us. It’s no fun when that happens and I simply enjoy helping others discover what may be holding them back and how to tap into their potential.

My clients say I am to the point and there’s no fluff, but I help them get results. I am totally focused and certain about what I do and I’m committed to helping my clients improve their results.

I’m a certified life coach and John Maxwell Leadership coach and trainer, who is recognised as the leading authority on leadership today by many organisations.

If you have the desire, I believe I can help you.
