James Rosseau, Sr. helps leaders achieve sustainable business growth. He serves on the DeVry University Board of Trustees, is an Executive in Residence at the Kellogg School of Management and is the author of Success on Your Own Terms: 6 Promises to Fire up your Passion, Ignite Your Career and Create an Amazing Life. James has confronted and overcome major challenges. Born and raised in North Philadelphia, an area that does not inspire its residents to reach success, James struggled to gain self-confidence.
He lacked his father’s support, acceptance, and validation; tore his ACL, crushing his football dreams; and did not make it into college as he had planned. But he had a good work ethic, so he just kept going, eventually returning to complete his Undergraduate and Graduate degree. He discovered his passion for helping others and found success.
During his twenty years in leadership in companies such as JPMorgan Chase, Allstate, and LegalShield, James has created and guided high-performing teams through delivering double-digit growth, mergers and acquisitions, offshoring, outsourcing, startups, and well over 300 partnerships. In 2018, James transitioned from the corporate sector to be an entrepreneur and lead his non-profit, The Corelink Solution.
The Corelink Solution is leading a “head and heart” mission, delivering training focused on authentic career development and leadership, along with the creation and curation of supportive media.
In 2018, James transitioned from the corporate sector to be an entrepreneur and led his nonprofit, The Corelink Solution, whose goal is to increase high school graduation and career success rates in low income communities by empowering individuals to reach their potential. The leadership facilitation work he delivers as an entrepreneur allows him to fuel the non-profit.

Leading with Intent
Organizations are struggling to achieve sustainable growth. Employee engagement is dwindling. James Rosseau shares his battle-tested formula: Passion, People and Process = Performance. James has served in senior leadership roles within three organizations over the past twenty years, achieving double-digit growth in each. He has led new start-ups, market expansions, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, offshoring and more. With this as the backdrop, James takes the audience through a journey. He shares the trials, the defeats, and the triumphs, but most importantly the proven lessons that propelled his team’s success. Participants will leave with an understanding of the five inherent challenges that prohibit transformational growth; an understanding of the three Ps of the formula; and three to five actions that they can take the next day to make near term impact.
Success on Your Own Terms

James took an unlikely course to reach the C-Suite, overcoming major challenges along the way. As he documented his journey and the practices that helped him, which is changing lives every day. This program will propel your employees towards their ultimate success for your organization and themselves.
