I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chris, both as my coach and as a management consultant with my team. Chris is incredibly skilled at connecting with people and delivering quality and highly impactful strategic planning sessions. Personally, I have found Chris very insightful, articulate and creative. He has a unique ability to quickly assess a challenging situation and provide clear advice on ways to achieve positive change.

Working with Chris is like getting a new tool kit. He gives you a few of tools that you need every day, a couple you need occasionally when you are in a specific situation and a couple that you pull out when you are in a bad situation.
The way Chris talks about habits hit me. It was tangible and something I could execute. Two years ago, I was traveling for work big time and the sole provider for my household. I was missing a lot of family-time and when I was at home I wasn’t making the right choices. With his coaching, I took on no more than two changes at a time and made them habits. I saw marked improvements in my health and performance that year.
Then my mom passed away, leaving me to take care of my 93-year-old grandmother on top of a growing workload. I got sick, began to have headaches, my blood pressure was out of whack and I had to go on medication. Some of the things that Chris had taught me were in the back of my mind but I had not implemented them. When I was ready to get back on track, Chris helped me implement them, get off of the medication and handle the stress. I just did a few things consistently and deliberately and it only took 30 days or so to get back to where I wanted to be.
Today, my body composition is different, my blood is healthy, I am a lot less stressed and I can handle things a lot better because I spent some 1:1 time with Chris getting the tools I needed.
