“As a leader, it is important to me to show up in the best way I can. I take this obligation seriously as managing is a title, but leadership is the result of deep, empathetic, caring relationships with people around you. After joining one of Chris’s monthly meet-ups his presence spoke to me as the leadership presence I wanted to emulate – it was calm and I felt seen. After a few emails and video chat, Chris agreed to work with me to find my heart-based leadership that I knew I wanted. I do have to admit though as a Type A person who skews left brain (logical), I was skeptical of a coaching approach that looked at the “whole person” not just improvements in specific behaviors. I stuck with it and through Chris’s guidance, I was able to find my leadership voice which was just a whisper before – but Chris helped bring the megaphone. Highly recommended!”
– Joshua Mitchell, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

“I didn’t know it then, but getting introduced to Chris was one of the most important moments of my career. I met him at a time where I felt so unsure of myself and my path ahead. As an HR leader, I was up against many work challenges throughout the pandemic, and I didn’t feel like I was capable of moving forward when things started to go back to “normal”. I needed a change, but I had not idea how to do it. To put it simply, I felt stuck. Chris gave my the guidance and support I needed during this confusing time. He never lets me forget the type of leader I want to be, and he helps me get there through safe discussions and intentional work. He has helped me take the steps I need to move forward in my career, get organized, and show up as the best version of myself. I found my new path! So if you’re feeling stuck or confused or need help seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, Chris is your person. I can’t imagine working with anyone else.”
– Allie Shulman, Change.org

"This session was nothing short of life-changing. Chris smashed old fashioned theories about leadership and showed us that bringing our authentic selves to work is not only desirable, it's crucial."
