Because everyone needs someone in their corner

Whether you are an executive striving to reach the next level, an established team that’s stuck in a rut or a start-up trying to find its way – having a strategic partner to help you lead and tell your story with clarity, authenticity, and impact is invaluable.

What’s Your Story?

It’s a simple question but can be vexing to answer.   Chris knows the power of simple and believes in your ability to get to the right answer and find your own story…

Living your best story is the first step towards reaching your goals

Telling stories is what I do. For years, I used my curiosity, creativity and clarity to entertain, inform and inspire. Now, I help people, teams and businesses better understand their own stories so they can their true potential. As a Coach, Educator and Storyteller, I use my years of journalism training to ask the right question, get to the core of the issue and then uses my decades of coaching, communication and leadership skills to help you put that new information into context and then into action to improve your job, your company, your life.

I’m not a big-box consulting firms. For me its all about relationships, I want to be a true strategic partner who takes the time to learn your story, helps you craft a game plan unique and authentic to you, and then cheers you on as you rise above the noise and go out and kick ass.

How I Got Here: My Lollipop Moment

I’m not looking to talk myself out of an engagement, but I found this Ted Talk to be incredibly simple and incredibly powerful. It’s by Drew Dudley, himself an Executive Coach, and it’s about the idea that we all can be leaders – that we have somehow made leadership...
