Chris was my professional development coach for about a year and it was a valuable and rewarding experience. Chris provided clear strategies for business development that were easy to implement and helped me to become more accountable in my focus on growing a legal practice. Not only did he help on the business development side, but he provided guidance on navigating the various aspects of a law firm environment. Chris is personable, energetic, smart, creative, and is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Chris as a coach to anyone.
Great program with great insight from the coaches. It definitely helped open my eyes and change my perspective and approach to business development for the better.
Chris helps you find your success and achieve your goals by having you help others find their success and achieve their goals. This makes business development fun–and most importantly it makes business development fulfilling and meaningful. I highly recommend Chris as a coach, as a trainer, and as a friend.
This was a great program. I hope the firm continues our relationship with Chris and his firm and makes this opportunity available to other rising partners.
Chris is a top-notch pro who brought commitment and results to our team. His coaching assistance far exceeded expectations. If you are looking for candid, engaged and effective business coaching, call Chris.
Upon my return to private practice, Chris was masterful in drilling down not only to the expertise I had gained during my time as General Counsel for Governor Rick Perry, but also to how I most enjoy applying my skills. With his guidance I have made a transition back to the practice of law that focuses on the things that make me want to jump out of bed in the morning.
