              Teambuilding * Leadership Development * Professional Coaching
              Tim is a visionary trainer and coach. When he was eight, his
              parents moved their family to Teller, Alaska on the Bering Straits,
              an Inupiat Eskimo village of 200. “Friends taught me lessons for
              which I'm profoundly grateful. . . Growing up in a place where
              continents and worlds touch gave me a love for in-between space
              ("Zwischenraum" the Germans call it).” He went to college and then
              grad school at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government; after
              finishing school he became a management consultant. Then “I
              discovered coaching. It's allowed me to connect the wisdom of all
              my worlds.” (Excerpted from www.timpearson.net.)
