Business strategist Jim Harris is focused on assisting organizations gain strategic advantage to reach optimal performance. With an uncanny ability to understand and capitalize on where markets and mindsets are going, Harris looks to the future and helps organizations and leaders all over the world successfully identify and respond faster to emerging trends.

Harris’ track record includes identifying blindsiding trends that continues to impact organizations today. Seemingly healthy companies – including Polaroid, Detroit auto makers, Microsoft and more - can fail to recognize and respond quickly to market changes, resulting in being blindsided by competitors who overtake their market. The chances of being blindsided in business have never been greater. Harris offers a unique series of tools, techniques and strategies to help business leaders identify trends earlier and more accurately predict their impact.

Before ‘going green’ became part of our everyday lexicon, Harris saw the shift in thinking and committed to joining and leading a political movement focused on sustainability and ecological wisdom. Under his three and a half year leadership, the party significantly increased voter support, membership and budget (7X, 14X and 100X respectively), and is a contender for its first seat in government. He was also a managing partner in Cleantech Innovation Institute, focused on bringing together venture capitalists with entrepreneurs who have developed clean technologies. In addition, Harris is one of only a handful of experts personally trained by Al Gore and renowned climate change scientists and educators to present the slideshow from An Inconvenient Truth.

A specialist in leadership and best practices, Harris also authored Blindsided: How to Spot the Next Breakthrough that will Change your Business Forever and The Learning Paradox, The 100 Best Companies to Work for in Canada and has represented the Covey Leadership Center – teaching clients Dr. Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.

Business trends and forecasts are Harris’ strengths. He is skilled in identifying emerging concerns and issues and in developing the strategies to effectively overcome them.
