Five years ago today I was wearing a dust mask and covered in drywall dust. I was working on completing the renovation of the basement of our house in Toronto. The basement was being finished because we were finished with both the house and our life …
Jim is a compassionate professional with high integrity, professionalism, and knowledge on how to promote the psychological well being of individuals. He has great insight and expertise into human relationships and behaviour. I recommend him to any adults and youth who are looking to talk to someone who can provide guidance in a practical and nurturing manner.

I've known and worked with Jim since 2005 and he never ceases to surprise. He works incredibly well with people, both teenagers and adults. He inspires teens to step WAY out of their comfort zone and thrive in that unknown place. With teachers, Jim brings people out of themselves and helps them examine the big and small things in life. He knows when to play and to be serious. He breaks walls and invites people to step beyond them. But the thing I respect about him most is that he is more than willing to take those journeys himself. That is the true mark of his gifts.

I have witnessed firsthand Jim’s unwavering professionalism and his uncanny ability to motivate and inspire people; the true mark of a leader. He was, and continues to be a dynamic facilitator, who is creative, empathetic, wickedly funny and results-oriented. I think Jim’s greatest strength is his ability to create a safe space for people to learn and to express their thoughts and feelings. I highly recommend Jim’s services to any organization looking for a confident, authentic and adaptable professional.
Shannon Beauchamp, Facilitator & Leadership Consultant
Jim has taught me that I am of value and that I have a voice that is worth being heard. He brightens a room with authenticity and enthusiasm; his willingness and acceptance to travel alongside me through my own growth have been a source of comfort I could depend on throughout many years. His passion for life reminds me that this is a life worth living.

One of the most creative, provocative and challenging graduate classes of the OISE U of Toronto course in the fall of 2013 was led by Jim Dalling. Jim is a brilliant educator who not only brought an exciting collection of masks to work with but demonstrated the power and potential they provide to engage and expand learning. Students were moved. Three hours passed without a glance at the clock. Laughter, tears and inspired thinking happened. Jim is a genius.
Dr. Linda Cameron, Professor Emerita OISE, University of Toronto
Jim challenges you to look into the root of problems from a genuine place. Like any agent of change, he would not get a person to look squarely on at their trials and tribulations, fostering ownership of their frailties if he had not gone through that process himself. His own self discovery gives him the insight to push people to their potential, sometimes to uncomfortable places. Jim is at once curious and present. It is this infectious curiosity which makes people want to talk to him, but also makes him strive to find the ‘realness’ in every person and situation.
'I have had the opportunity to work with Jim Dalling in high school classrooms since 2008. He has always demonstrated a great ability to read a group and adjust his teaching goals to their needs. I can remember one group of grade nine students who were struggling to feel connected in school. Jim made these students feel comfortable enough to share very personal stories about themselves almost immediately. He listened without judgment and he heard what they were saying.
Erin Smith, OCT, Simcoe County District School Board
Jim was very attentive and detailed oriented during the preparation of the workshop, and wanted to customize the content to make it most impactful. I found his greatest skills as a facilitator to be able to listen and improvise with the group. I believe Jim’s innately embodies a “servant leadership” style, being humble, trustworthy, caring and empowering. From the event, the team took away artwork that we all co-created, which personified Nulogy’s view of the future.
