Testimonials

Chris was a thoughtful, intentional sounding board and mentor as I worked through my own professional development, helping me tackle big and small issues. She also provided access to a number of additional resources that have really rounded out my toolbox. Grateful for her coaching, facilitation, and wisdom - and look forward to the opportunity to work together again.

Christine was a gift during a time of major personal and professional transitions. She helped me find clarity so I could prioritize and she helped me open space for new opportunities. She has a knack for getting right down to the essentials. I most enjoyed her insights and sense of humor.

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be coached by Chris because she is smart, insightful, and brilliant at business process improvement. She quickly spotted areas of my work where I was making things harder than they need to be. Streamlining and fine-tuning systems has freed up time and energy and improved my work/life balance. Her style is thoughtful and fun. I highly recommend her.

Working on yourself under Christine’s guidance is an amazing journey. She is spot on, kind, insightful and super resourceful. She brings to the table a level of care and knowledge to help you grow in ways that you hadn’t envision for yourself. She will put her finger on that one struggling point and lead you into identifying where you have room for improvement and how to get there. She guides rather than tell. She gives you keys that you might use later one and realize months after how insightful and resourceful she is. 

Chris gave me tools, lead me to identify problem areas, took my hand in a time of hardship; but more importantly, she taught me to see within, to ask myself the right questions, to be in touch with a whole part of me that was buried. I have grown, blossomed, evolved, progressed thanks to her guidance. I can only be grateful and highly recommend her!

You were an amazing facilitator. I have only heard positive reviews from board members. You were EXACTLY what this group needed- we couldn't stop talking about what you did for the group - on so many levels. Thank you for helping us articulate the priorities moving forward.

Brené Brown, Call to CourageDare to Lead™

About The Dare To Lead Program

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals.

Courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage-building skills through workshops, trainings and coaching to help individuals, teams and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.

Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. She is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers including Dare to Lead, which debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly lists.

Individuals who successfully complete the full 16-hour Dare to Lead™ program will receive a certificate of completion and are allowed to put a Dare to Lead™ Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.
