COACHING FOR LEADERSHIP & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
It was leadership and management legend, Peter Drucker, who said that, "the only way to predict the future is to create it." Indeed, it is when we step into that creative process of being "at cause" in the way the future unfolds, that we step into the realm of leadership.
Whether you are inspired to grow and develop as a leader on your service path or in your personal life, coaching is a powerful way to engage your core values and longings, deepen your learning, and live more powerfully, authentically, and effectively into what you are seeking to embody and contribute.
BENEFITS OF COACHING
When you choose to work with me, you are choosing to plant and nurture the seeds of possibility you are already carrying with you. This requires an investment on your part - of resources like time, energy, and money - that you are making in your purpose, your business, and your relationships. But in the bigger picture, the benefits of coaching extend far beyond that scope - concentric rings of influence that travel out to your greater community and arguably out to the generations yet to come.
Some direct benefits you can look forward to harvesting from your coaching investment with me include:
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." - Albert Einstein
HOW IS COACHING WITH ME UNIQUE?
One important aspect that sets my work apart from that of others is my nature-sourced, systems approach.
What that means for our coaching relationship is that our work engages your wholeness not just as a leader, but also as an integrated, connected being. Coaching then becomes a process of opening up and "coming home" - the home that is your self, your purpose, your inner landscape, and your connection with all that you are a part of - and in so doing, allowing your life and leadership to grow from that fertile awareness. Rather than "fixing" things or struggling to force anything into being, your learning deepens, and you discover natural pathways and new skill sets to bring your gifts and passions more authentically and easefully into your life and service path.
YOUR LEADERSHIP ECOLOGY
LEADERSHIP BEST PRACTICES - Developing key habits, routines, and skills helps the leader engage the world with purpose and effectiveness. Whether the focus is your career or personal life, our work may address areas such as communication, getting things done, effective use of time, managing/leading people, the practice of integrity, as well as conflict resolution and peace making.
THE ROOTS WITHIN - It is the landscape within that gives rise to the way the leadership shows up in the world. Through inquiry and reflection, our work will provide insights into your inner ecology - your "root system" - that landscape of emotions, beliefs, and thought patterns that influences who you are BEING as you engage your life, your people, and your projects.
CONNECTION TO EARTH - Albert Einstein said: "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." In that way, the patterns found in the natural world provide valuable insights for our own life and work in the world. Indeed, it may be those who personally cultivate a strong connection with the earth, who will be most able to usher in a new era of healing and regeneration in the world.
"Christopher supported me in a powerful transition into a new professional role. He skillfully coached me into the confidence and clarity that I needed in order to gracefully walk into this significant change. I don't believe I could have arrived at this point of readiness without Christopher's wise accompaniment."

Working with Chris has been a powerful reminder that, no matter what the circumstances, the future is always what we make it. He has pushed me to put the time and energy I once spent on my blues and redirect it towards changing my life. I’m beginning to see now how this simple but critical shift, from embracing suffering to embracing imagination, is open to everyone.”

Christopher led me through a guided, beautiful, intuitive process of self-discovery that laid the groundwork for positive change in literally every area of my life. I owe my reconnection to writing, my blog, my current career trajectory and a renewed sense of self to our work together.
