    Chris came highly recommended from some of the smartest people I know. He knew what he was doing and I found a lot of value in the helpful, thought-provoking exercises and techniques. His facilitation was critical to accomplishing the end goal. He kept us from jumping to solution until it was the right time. He helped boil down the many dots to next key steps, kept things interesting and moving for all. He's a 'facilitation ninja.'

    Before our workshop, I thought we'd only be doing collage work, but I learned that goal setting is not about planning, it's deeper than that. I loved the step by step layering process and the visual maps. I now see myself in a whole new way. Chris has exceptional authenticity, tools and process.

    Frank Kidder

    Working with Chris was positive. Facilitating is an art form that is only acquired through experience and insight and Chris is an outstanding facilitator who has mastered the rare talent of balance. During the workshop, not only did it clarify the nature of our business transition but engaged the enrollment of key stakeholders. I was impressed that we got through the assertive agenda and this session helped out. From pre-work, participant materials, facilitation and overall experienced, the logistics worked well.

    The facilitation was incredibly smooth from Chris. He was not afraid to keep us moving forward. I appreciated process examination and the focus on our marketplace and demo-graphics. There was a lot of intensity and excitement during the session. Chris was agenda focused, super positive and easy to work with during the program. As a result, our organization has a better lift off from our work together.

  • about me

    Using my intuition & empathy for work, world travel and buying art.

    I'm a creative, purpose-centered coach, strategist and educator. I geek out on personality type models, personal branding, goal setting, business systems, learning styles, and neuroscience with a mild (or not so mild) YouTube addiction.


    I've built training organizations from the ground up, mentored clients into profound changes, bring clarity to best work roles in career coaching, leadership development and mentoring experts to share their message with educational products.


    My favorite world travel places (and favorite foods) include Peru, Bali, Tokyo, France and Italy. I dream of a world where children are free from cancer and can grow up living and playing as healthy children.
