James Barnes Biography

James Barnes focuses on how core identity development can leverage you into success. Whether you are becoming a parent, coming out as Transgender, or pivoting your company in a new direction, concentrating on your core identity is vital for thriving.

In 2021, Barnes created The Trans Coach brand. He speaks to companies on his transition journey and how understanding the transgender experience can help them better serve their employees and innovate their identity. In addition, Barnes develops courses for Transgender men to build intentional transition plans for better mental health. He also does one-on-one coaching with people struggling through major life shifts and needing to re-align with their core identity.

He has spoken at companies such as Lyft, Del Monte Foods, Comcast, Twilio, Zendesk, and many others. Also, Barnes has been featured in Business Insider and an invited guest on multiple podcasts.

Barnes came out as Transgender in 2015 and started researching coping skills, healthy masculinity, and identity development. Those three factors played a massive role in Barnes becoming the proud father, husband, speaker, and business owner he is today.

Audiences will leave feeling motivated and knowledgeable in defining their core identity, how they can pivot and innovate their lives or their companies, and better understand the transgender experience!
