Omaha Leadership and Sports Psychology Coach, Makes Top 100 List

OMAHA, Neb. – A national magazine on life enrichment, Personal Excellence, has named Omaha native, Jim Meier, president of The Training and Consulting Connection (TCC), to its first ever Personal Excellence 100 list of personal and professional development coaches.

The listing acknowledges Meier as one of the best minds in the personal and professional development field, and it includes other notables such as talk show host and entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey, management experts Tom Peters, Ken Blanchard and Stephen Covey, sales consultant, Zig Ziglar and basketball coach, Mike Krzyzewski. (See the full article here.)

Meier, a longtime manager with the Union Pacific Railroad, established his consultation leadership coaching and training business in 1991 to help guide organizations through progressive change, create results orient teams and bring about innovative thinking. Meier has presented programs to more than 300 small to large businesses and non-profit organizations, including ConAgra, Union Pacific, Mutual of Omaha, Metropolitan Community College, the Panama Canal Commission and the U.S. Justice Department. In addition, he has authored three children’s books and many articles and books on leadership, teams, innovation and sports psychology. Since 2005, Meier has hosted a weekly Internet radio show, Championship Thinking.

Personal Excellence based its list on physical, mental, social/emotional, professional, financial, spiritual and service qualities. The nominees also had to score well in preparation, character, principles, personality, performance, experience, expression and influence.

Ken Shelton, editor-in-chief of Personal Excellence, said Meier’s broad background enabled him to see what others sometimes miss.

“Jim Meier goes beyond coaching and cheerleading to get at the natural laws and timeless principles of peak performance,” Shelton said. “He can see what makes a person effective in one area or arena and ineffective in another; why performance can vary so much from person to person, day to day, event to event and team to team; and, how you can recover from slumps and setbacks. He explores the spiritual and mental roots of physical performance—and those roots produce abundant fruit.”
