Shaking Hands


Joseph James, PhD

I started Higher Up Consulting because I feel the best way I could honor the gifts God gave me is to help others realize and leverage their own gifts.

I do this by applying the science of industrial organizational psychology to develop and deliver practical solutions that enhance individual, team, and organizational effectiveness.

Throughout my career, I have served in organizational and talent development roles and look forward to using my expertise to deliver practical solutions for your organizational challenges.
