“Chris recently traveled to Clemson to facilitate John Maxwell’s Leadership Game with my leadership team. Not only was the game interesting and entertaining, but the thought provoking questions encouraged productive dialog amongst my leadership team. Chris did an excellent job facilitating the team’s discussions by encouraging deeper conversations which allowed us to recognize our strengths, uncover gaps, and get to know each other better. The timing of this game was perfect because we are a fairly new team, comprised of not only a few new members but also changes in our organization structure with revised roles and responsibilities. We all left this team building activity feeling encouraged and motivated by the new insights about ourselves and our team. I strongly recommend Chris and his facilitation of the Leadership Game.”
-Emily Watrous, Chief Human Resources Officer at Clemson University
“Leadership and teambuilding training were on the top of our training agenda for our annual employee conference this year and Chris offered us exactly what we needed! Chris facilitated an incredible program to our diverse group of employees with his interactive “leadership game” which he conducted four times in one day. The employees in attendance were all at different levels within our organization. Chris is a gifted facilitator offering a group training environment that was highly interactive, engaging and always professional. In addition, Chris provided our Executive Leadership Team with valuable feedback that they have been able to use to make improvements within our organization. We received very positive feedback from our employees that attended Chris’ training session and definitely plan to use his services again in the future.”
-Caroline Calder, HR Director at NHE, Inc.
“The most significant thing that Chris does that has shifted my thinking and mindset is how wholeheartedly and committed Chris is with teaching this experience. He’s not just a teacher he is more like a friend that wants his friends to learn and succeed. During classes it’s easy to stay focused because talking and listening to Chris is very inspiring. Being able to have someone to talk to you about your past, present and future is an amazing feeling. It’s hard to find people like Chris that actually set out to help people like myself. With pushing you to do your best and thrive for a better future. He really wants to push you to fulfill every hope, goal and dream and for that I’ll always be thankful for Chris who has given me a roadmap to follow on my own path of spiritual/professional growth.”
-Brandon Holden, Knit Technician at Milliken & Company
“I have been part of five different Leadership Development courses facilitated by Chris. I also had several one on one coaching sessions with Chris. He is very passionate about challenging people to look within themselves to uncover their dormant dreams and goals. In my case, he helped me realize that past mistakes have nothing to do with future success. Because of his influence, I am now pursuing a dream that I had given up on long ago. His technique transcends both professional and personal life which empowers you to really create a work like balance because his focus is YOU. I highly recommend Chris to any business or individual who is seeking to improve themselves or simply feels they need a change. Chris can definitely be described as a “Change Agent”.”
-Shane Burnett, Dept. Manager at D&W Fine Pack
“Chris has an incredible ability to influence and inspire others to overcome their limiting beliefs. Working on ropes course challenges, Chris’ presence, guidance and coaching was like having a support system which gave me strength to do something I never imagined myself being able to do. Chris has a remarkable ability to empower people and make them believe in themselves. His coaching infused me with courage, trust and perseverance. Thank you Chris and I look forward to more opportunities for working with you in the future.
-Lillit L. Cholakian, VP of Marketing & Operations at Allied X-Ray, Inc.
“Talking with Chris opened my mind to things I’ve always thought about doing but was afraid to take that step. Whether it was helping others out or helping myself out with new opportunities. I discovered things about myself the times I’ve talked with Chris. Some to make me a better person, husband and father. I’ve learned to let go of things from my past that was blocking me from doing these things. I will always look at the time spent with Chris as something very positive and helpful for many years to come.”
-Leon Tate, Technician at D&W Fine Pack
“Chris facilitated an interactive Leadership and Teambuilding game for 15 of our key management staff. Our Branch Managers from across the state participated along with key Corporate Leaders. It was a diverse group who rarely get face to face time together. Chris did a fantastic job facilitating and debriefing the day. Tears were shed, people laughed, and we all grew closer together. We came away with a better understanding of how each of us likes to communicate. The activities were highly interactive and Chris used state of the art materials. Everything was top notch and professional. I would trust Chris with teams and leaders from all levels of an organization…from the shop floor to the corporate boardroom. His relaxed style and willingness to let the group process things without feeling the need to “jump in” was perfect. We will be using Chris again.”
Rick Redmon, VP of Operations at Phillips Staffing
“Eye opening. I am truly a better manager as a result of Chris. My managerial skillset is way better than it was and is directly due to Chris. This is true throughout my management team. Chris taught me to believe in myself first. He showed me how to develop my skill sets that (he promised it would work and he was “spot on”) would make me a better team player and leader. I am a better employee, person and overall leader due to Chris and Chris alone.”
-Jody McSweeney, Corporate Food Safety Manager and D&W Fine Pack
“I feel that Chris helped me believe in myself to a greater extent and this encouraged me to step out of the box to under react with others and being positive with my overall approach.”
