After our company meeting the fun activities usually rank the highest. Yet your time with us blew the charts out of the water. I love the message and your execution was extremely effective. Personally, SightShift has changed my perspective to be more ready to recognize if I'm powering up or pulling away. Additionally I have seen a significant difference and strong results with our team members. This is a catalyst for us to facilitate change in ourselves and others. - Jeff Baker, Co-Founder, President, CEO of Noble
We brought in Chris as a guest speaker for a private event for our clients. Chris totally rocked it and understood the vision we were going for and crafted the message around the audience’s profile/make-up. What’s great about Chris’ public speaking is it engages the audience, adds value to them, and there’s no weirdness or BS. It’s practical. Chris was also an all around pro, on-time for arrival and didn’t go over his alotted time slot. We plan on working with Chris for more speaking engagements. Hire him for your next event, you won’t go wrong. - D.C. Joseph, Principal of Serif Creative
I believe your best work is in front of you.
Every day is packed with opportunity: small moments that add up to big results. I know because I’ve watched it happen in my own life. I have a history of lessons learned the hard way. From being a paper millionaire to rebuilding friendships to starting my own company, I have the experiences to promise you that your best is in front of you, waiting for you.
It’s easier to pull back when work gets tough.
Pressure can cause you to get blocked up. You’ll fade back when you should lean in. You’ll power up when you’d be better off relaxing. These moments are difficult to navigate, but you’ll learn how to handle each one of them.
Frustration is an opportunity.
The same moment that is filled with frustration is your greatest moment of opportunity. The project is too hard and the obstacles too big. Shift your mindset and you’ll see the opportunity for your next grand work. After working with thousands of people and applying these principles in my own life, I’ve learned that the frustrating moments can turn into the greatest gifts.
A simple, elegant solution can fix the stress that keeps you up at night.
You don’t have to be frustrated with all the changes you want to make. Every ambitious person I’ve met has a to-do list longer than the day. Every team member dreams of the rest of their team doing more. I help people cut through the clutter, identify top priorities, and get more important work done.
