Meet Your Presenter: Jim Fortner

Jim is currently serving as the President of the ICF CAC and has been serving on the Executive Board since 2020. His own coaching is still in the genesis stage and is starting to take shape at the twilight of his professional career. He enjoys working with Project Managers just getting their starts and mid-level PM's that need to learn more about their own strengths to help them along their own career journeys. One of the sensibilities that he embraced early in his own career was the need to build teams with diverse mindsets. One of the biggest challenges he sees today when building teams is groupthink. Coaching others to not only think for themselves but making sure they find the courage to speak has been one of keys to his success. Jim restores order to his own mindset by spending time with his lovely wife Fran of 30 years and their two dogs Khaleesi (3) and Davos (1).   

Jim is a native Charlottean and embraces the city and area that Charlotte has become (the positive outcomes). A significant portion of his family resides in the area, and he has some deep roots in Northern Mecklenburg County. Part of that heritage is the Davis General Store built at the turn of the 19th century and is on the list of the "Seven Wonders" in the Charlotte area.
