Resources & Insights From Chris…

Coaching is not about providing solutions. How can we have the right answer to another person’s dreams or aspirations? Leaders often think “I’m in charge”; “I have to have all the answers” (as one misguided leader told me over a decade ago); or “it’s my job to get things right.” When we give out solutions like a lollipop at the doctor, we deny others an opportunity to grow. If you try to help a butterfly out of his cocoon, he will not develop the muscles needed to fly. As a coach, there is the opportunity to be amazed by the transformation someone can make…

Partnering with leaders in a thought provoking, creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

“Over the past year, our partnership with Chris has been a tremendous resource for our team. He has provided our leaders continuous mentorship and ensured implementation of a holistic leadership training and development program. These best practices have truly enhanced our club’s mission, employee culture, and member experience.”
