As an engineer, I've realized that technical skills aren't enough ...

Engaging with coaching during a challenging project and personal struggles was a turning point. The stress was overwhelming, but coaching provided the tools to navigate it.  I learned that managing stress isn't just about me; it impacts the whole team. Coaching helped me keep a level head, enhancing team performance and efficiency.  I've experienced a metamorphosis in my outlook. Positive thinking techniques and self-awareness exercises led to new clarity and growth.

I wanted an outside observer to guide us through new projects and strategic thinking.  The coaching sessions changed the game for me. I gained confidence and a stronger voice. Role plays allowed me to tackle concerns head-on and present ideas effectively. Now, I can portray my abilities with confidence.  My program aligns better with our organization's direction. I now think creatively, push boundaries, and explore new possibilities.

Grant K - Director @ CUPS Calgary

There were management and situational challenges along with a mix of other intertwined things like a ball of rubber bands ...

I came to you unsure of what to address, but we figured it out together over a few sessions. We inspected each issue separately rather than the big picture. This helped me identify the main issues. Thanks to our sessions, I gained deeper communication and repositioned myself. It was enlightening to have a dialogue about myself without having to talk to myself about it.

Yoshinori C - Process Engineer @ Equinox Engineering

I suffered from getting lost in the daily demands of my job ...

I recognized that while I had an excellent idea for long-term growth, it would never become a reality unless I did something about it. Only 30 minutes once a week with Chris gave me the focus and direction I was looking for. Within four sessions with Chris, he had me clarify short and long-term goals and a blueprint for achieving them.

I can prioritize goals, trim the excess, and have a narrower, focused vision instead of a hectic, wild, free-for-all ...

I knew Chris' coaching was working well for me when most of the goals that were laid out were getting accomplished on time or early. Chris holds me to account for my dedication, time, and persistence. So, in actuality, it's become much harder, but I am saving time and being increasingly productive.

I still find myself asking the question 'what does this goal look like with the governor off?' ...
The start to this year has been pretty challenging in ways I wasn’t tested last year - like now we have many more cross-functional partners in the mix requiring alignment, but I’ve been able to navigate it pretty well, or at least better than the past 😂.
My “passion” definitely still shows up to work 😁.
Thank you for your help and working with me! It honestly helped a lot, and I still find myself asking the question “what does this goal look like with the governor off?”. You’re a great coach!
