What if…

This is the question we asked - and you answered. What if you could connect with others who want to lead differently? What if inspiration and support was a click away? What if you could start wherever you are and find the resources you need now? What if you could imagine more, engage more, be more, create more? Welcome to the Center for Inspired Leaders.

Individual and Group Coaching with Chris

Every leader who realizes their vision meets a guide along the way, someone who helps them bridge the gap between where they stand and where they want to be – as an individual, a leader, a team, an organization. Chris has served as that guide for hundreds of seekers and leaders and knows we need different kinds of help at different stages of our journeys. Below are some of the ways you can access this kind of support - exactly when you need it and in the format that works for you.

  • Jumpstart Session - That single, laser focused sit-down with Chris to understand exactly where you stand and what steps will move you forward.

  • Walking Sessions - When you just want to walk on the beach with Chris and sort things out.

  • Group Coaching - Perhaps because it fits your budget, perhaps because the accountability and support of being part of a group is a fit for you.

  • Mastermind Group - A small cohort of colleagues ready to go deep in pursuit of their goals.

  • 1:1 Coaching - When you need that focused 1:1 attention to help you get unstuck and move toward real clarity of purpose and vision.




Our Commitment to Growth

We will continue to add courses, workshops, masterclasses, coaching and other growth opportunities - both with Chris and with guest leaders and teachers. And because you went first, you will always have first access.
