Chris’ gift in teaching and experience with coaching people were evident in his delivery of our strengthsfinder results. He is very relational and wise in his communication and presented the strengths in a way that was meaningful, impactful, and thought provoking...I feel driven to learn more from him about how I can empower my strengths to my advantage in life.

My husband and I have learned so much so far in our strengthsfinder coaching sessions with Chris. We are growing closer together as we gain greater understanding, not only of ourselves, but of one another. We are learning to extend grace much more readily as our expectations of the other are much more realistic. Also, I have noticed that relationships outside of my marriage have been helped. I spend less time comparing myself to others! I am grateful that we have found Chris and strengthsfinder.
— Jane Riddiough, Montessori Teacher
My wife and I had the opportunity to take the strengths finder test and have Chris evaluate and discuss the results. The test was affirmation of the way we are wired and how we can use our inborn natural ability to enhance our lives and the lives of those around us. For me, being able to recognize my wife’s strength and how we as a couple can facilitate her gifts was exciting. The approach of finding our strength and not focusing on our weaknesses was refreshing and a positive experience. Chris was very informative as to how our strengths can work off other strengths to mold a unique and collective set of skills that are distinctive to each person. Chris demonstrated a keen insight into each of the strengths and how we would expect those traits to manifest themselves in our families, workplaces, and community.

We had Chris come in and spend a morning with our senior staff team and it was an invaluable experience. Not only did we each walk away from the workshop with a fresh understanding of our unique gifts and talents, but we also gained a deeper appreciation for one another through the process. Our team has been strengthened through having a shared language to communicate more effectively with one another. We are definitely planning on bringing Chris back for another session in the near future.
— Daniel Susenbach, Executive Pastor, Steamboat Springs, CO
