    Episode 17: A Conversation with Jim Priest

    Episode 17: A Conversation with Jim Priest

    Jim Priest is a great example of why I created this podcast and why I have such a passion for networking (i.e. relationshiping). I first met Jim about two months ago, as he was the guest speaker at the Oklahoma City Human Resources Society (OCHRS) chapter meeting in late August. I felt an immediate connection to Jim as he talked about culture and the C suite's (not just HR) role in defining corporate culture. I introduced myself after the meeting and suggested we get together soon for coffee. Shortly after that breakfast meeting, we sat down and had this conversation here in a busy McDonald's to talk about his deep and diverse background, how he's managed to impact and lead culture change, and how the HR profession has evolved over the years.



    Jim Priest is a husband, dad, columnist, author, community activist and President of Sage counsel, a consulting practice which imparts wisdom and impacts lives through executive coaching, training, strategic advising and legal advice.  https://sage-counsel.com

    Jim was previously the CEO of one of Oklahoma’s largest nonprofits and was a trial lawyer for 34 years, focusing on employment and civil rights.

    Jim is the husband of one wife, Diane; the father of two children, Amanda and Spencer, and is owned by one dog named Jeter (yes, she’s named after Derek Jeter!). He is also an Olympic-level grandfather to his namesake grandson, James.
