Helping you transform your approach to living and leadership. If you aspire to lead, learn to serve.

About me

Life’s greatest challenges are all, in a certain sense, insoluble. They can't be solved—only outgrown.


You must achieve not only a different perspective, but a wider one. This philosophy—called appreciate inquiry—enables my clients to find their own answers even in the face of stubborn, sometimes intractable obstacles.


Together, we will identify distinct elements of your personality that influence others—your strengths, communication style, and psychological preferences. After exploring where your personal and professional goals intersect, we can co-create a blueprint, targeting areas for growth and outlining a step-by-step program for achieving it. In the process, we'll challenge those beliefs that reinforce counterproductive choices, clearing the way for deep-seated change and allowing a powerful, personal mission to take root.


In addition to a laser-sharp focus on interpersonal skills, specific focus are dependent on your unique challenges and may include:



  • Developing Influence

  • Building Confidence

  • Addressing Fear

  • Enhancing EQ

  • Mitigating Burnout

  • Techniques for Coaching Others


Confidence is Contagious: You have to see yourself the way you want others to. Transform your approach and rediscover what it feels like when others look to you for leadership out of respect rather than obligation. Shoot me a message and we'll get started with a consultation to assess your readiness and gauge our fit.

HOW I LIKE TO COACH

​We'll make use of the following as appropriate:



  • Psychological, Personality and Leadership Assessments (with a focus on behaviors, values and emotional intelligence);

  • Long Term Goal Orientation, including monthly objectives and a quarterly accountability review;

  • Realignment with Servant Leadership Principles and other closely-related approaches, including Authentic and Transformational Leadership concepts.


We'll spend our time:

  • Challenging those beliefs that reinforce counterproductive habits and behaviors and clearing the way for deep-seated change and a powerful, personal mission to take root.

OFFERINGS


PRIVATE COACHING

With the exception of the occasional break-out session, very little can be accomplished one session at a time. Coaching is not a one-way relationship: it requires as much investment and commitment from you as it does from me. Because commitments are so important to the coaching process and its outcomes, I most often accept clients who are willing to commit to 4-months of weekly sessions.

Experience, Certifications and Training

CERTIFICATIONS AND DEGREES
  • Master's Degree, Loyola University of Chicago
  • Certified Life Coach (C.C.A.)
  • Bachelor's Degree. University of Notre Dame
PROFESSIONAL AND LIFE EXPERIENCE

As a professional with over 15 years of leadership and coaching experience in corporate and non-profit roles, I have been steeped in both the philosophy and practice of effective servant leadership.


It is a natural answer to many of the challenges facing aspiring, new, and disillusioned leaders alike. Practiced carefully and consistently, it can heighten your focus, improve your relationships, enhance your creativity, decrease your stress, and reignite the self-confidence that comes with a reestablished sense of purpose.


Leadership is more than a skill or a job. When your actions serve and support the values and goals of those you seek to lead, you speak with the sort of authority no title can give.

    A Great Experience

    Working with Chris has been a great experience. He has a great perspective and an impressive ability to spark confidence, hope, and motivation in me. Chris helped me set challenging yet attainable goals, which has produced considerable improvements in my self-confidence and problem-solving skills. Chris has proven himself to be reliable and consistent, and I am confident that I can trust his guidance. I would highly recommend working with Chris, he is a talented and intelligent coach.

    Stategic, insightful re-framing

    I thought things were going pretty smoothly in terms of my life, until, more or less simultaneously, I had to deal with two life-changing challenges, the first of which, especially, I could have never imagined. After struggling for months with unexplained chronic pain, I was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder affecting every part of my body. At the same time, I was coming to terms with my sexuality, after years of struggling with it alone in the closet. As these two challenges hit me, punching hard and repeatedly, I was filled with despair and felt ready to throw away all of the achievements I had worked so hard to earn and give up on my future. Chris, with enormous talent, empathy, respect, and strategic thinking and re-framing of my self-destructive thoughts, allowed me to get my life back on track. His goal-oriented approach allowed me to make significant progress in much shorter time then years and years of psychotherapy. I would wholeheartedly endorse him for anyone in need of a life coach.

    Chris helps you find your own answers...

    Chris did a remarkable job helping me out when trying to figure out the next steps in my life. He was an active listener and really helped me develop a plan of action when dealing with some of the challenges I was going through both personally and professionally. One of my favorite parts of working with Chris was how he truly cared about improving the obstacles I faced and rather than giving me the answers, we always talked it through so that I was making the final decision. I highly recommend having Chris as a life coach if you are looking to reach your full potential while overcoming any barriers you may face along the way.

    A Highly Effective Coach

    Chris's coaching has been greatly beneficial to me. He's a highly effective coach... great listener, clear perception, nuanced thinking, highly professional, helpful perspective, and consistently effective at empowering change. His humility and style always made for fun and easy-flowing conversations. I truly feel that Chris cares about me and my growth, in all dimensions of life. Every session yielded valuable insights and meaningful changes in behavior; I found myself putting words to thoughts and intentions that I'd never articulated. He is uniquely gifted to do this work.
