An Independent Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team

About Welton James

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Author, Teacher and Speaker, I offer workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching; aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, we will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.


I became affiliated with the John Maxwell Team after spending thirty plus years as a Coach and Trainer, and as the Principal Consultant with my firm, James Leaders and as the Executive Director of Quality Assurance at the Tropicana Casino & Resort. In the latter position I worked with the Executive Team to establish, lead and monitor the Customer Service and Team Dynamic for a 5000-employee luxury resort. In my capacity with James Leaders, the client base ranged from a large medical practice of fourteen offices to Emanuel University in Oradea Romania.


I have not always had a healthy respect for work, being born in a one room shack in the coal mining camp of Affinity West Virginia. My father worked 6 days a week and was paid in script (similar to a subway token) which was only redeemable at the company store. By the time housing expenses, mining equipment and food was deducted, he owed more than he made. Luckily at thirteen I was introduced to a person who served a coach and mentor, who sowed the seeds of character, integrity and leadership which would eventually change my life and mission.


I specialize in unlocking the hidden desires in people, to reach their potential so that they can be better teammates, more productive workers and achievers of goals that they never believed possible. By using the John Maxwell proven strategies of personal and business development, I can assist you and your team with cost effective improvement and lasting change. People and companies grow by change, not by chance. In my book, “Weltonisms, Ancient Wisdom for Modern Problems” I list over 500 quotes of self-development and responsibility.


Whether you are looking for a facilitator for group workshops, corporate training in leadership, speaking, sales, or coaching skills for your leaders, or a speaker for your next event, I have access to exclusive content that is only available as a Certified Coach, Trainer and Speaker of the John Maxwell Team. Together we can reach your goals and objectives.
