Figuring it Out

Hiring a coach is a very personal and potentially difficult decision. When looking for a coach, I just wanted someone to help me ‘figure it out.’ I got so much more!

Cris’ reflective and supportive approach was not only instrumental in sorting out my short-term goals, she also provided me tools to confidently move forward.

Focused at the Crossroads

Change is inevitable. Sometimes you control change and sometimes you don’t. I was fortunate enough to meet Cris just prior to significant change in my professional career. We worked together before and during that change. The timing could not have been better for me. Her dedication and desire to maximize my potential—both professionally and personally—did not change course, regardless of my circumstance. Cris was dedicated to a singular objective—unlocking my greatest potential. The process was incredibly eye-opening for me. I realized personal strengths and ambitions that I would never have otherwise. I would highly recommend Cris to anyone, at any stage in their life.

The Push I Needed

Cris coached me out of a rut that felt bottomless.
I was stuck—both in my career AND my hometown.
I needed help, not just changing career paths and relocating, but also shifting the mindset that was keeping me there.

Cris helped me discover strengths that empowered me. I pursued a new, more fulfilling career path and lifestyle. She helped me break down a task that had felt insurmountable and kept me accountable throughout the process. Her tenacity was only matched by her kindness and positive energy — motivating me to achieve my goals. Every fear I faced was a hurdle overcome. My only regret is that I didn’t start working with Cris sooner. I’m now living my true passions and totally hitting my stride!

Game Changer

Working with Cris has increased my productivity professionally and my happiness personally. It used to be that I spent 30% of my time working for my most difficult 5% of clients. Now those 5% of clients take up 5% of my time. My employees have told me that I’m a better boss and I have better relationships with all my clients. Personally, I’ve grown emotionally and have a better relationship with my wife and my friends. I recommend Cris all the time.

Perfect Fit

I have known Cris for many years. When she decided to move into career and life coaching, I knew this was her special calling and that she was uniquely suited to this line of work. Recently I ran into a roadblock in my career, I was stuck in a rut and couldn’t decide which of two paths I had before me to follow. Cris was my first call. Cris’s expertise helped me step back and evaluate all my options, decide on a path forward and to prepare myself to have conversations that some might find uncomfortable. She allowed me to see the benefits I bring to the table and to present my case and myself to the right people. Ultimately I was promoted to a Corporate VP role, the exact position I was looking for. Thanks Cris!

From Tragedy, Triumph

After a year of incredible loss, I lost my way. My father passed away, I almost died, then I filed for divorce. Cris not only helped me regain my compass at work, she gently pushed me down the path to truly grieve, and then skillfully guided me through the grief to the other side. Without Cris, I’m not sure I could have regained my footing, my vision, and my drive. I’ll be forever grateful for her coaching, her ability and her gently, yet skillfully, bringing me to self-realizations that have created permanent insight and change. Cris not only helped save my career, she changed my life and my perspective permanently.

Need a tune up? Stuck in a rut?

Working with Cris helped direct my attention to the things that matter most in my profession. In today’s fast paced world, we sometimes disregard the effect we have on others in our focus to achieve the goal. Cris helped me to slow my pace, better understand the collaborative effort needed in decision making, and still achieve my goals. And with the surprising side benefit of team unity! I feel rejuvenated in both my personal and professional life and credit Cris with my mid-life adjustment. When you consider your need for a great Coach, I highly recommend Cris!

Right Time, Right Place

Good things happen to those who wait. That’s how I feel after meeting Cris. Over 13 years ago, I was on a search for a Coach. It must not have been the right time because life got in the way and it was pushed aside. The dust is finally settling and its time once again to pick up where I left off with my life’s pursuit. It’s amazing the personal discoveries revealed while working with Cris. She is the key that opens the door for you to work on your wants and dreams. I feel truly blessed to have connected with Cris. She is just what the doctor ordered!
