Coaching Philosophy

Known for her candor, humor and enthusiasm, Chris is a natural relationship builder, easy to connect with and trust. Working from initial assessments, Chris partners with clients to incite curiosity and creative open exploration to close the gap between current reality and desired state. She listens deeply, asks the right questions to help gain insight into the impact of behaviors, to examine personal and professional goals, and existing resources and strategies. Chris partners with clients as a responsible guide and navigator in the observation, analysis and diagnostic process of “system” evaluation. Committed to helping others transform and overcome challenges, Chris blends her organizational insight and strategic thinking to a comprehensive coaching engagement. In June 2019, Chris was thrilled to be trained by Dr. Brené Brown to become a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator.
