Chris pushes participants to consider their contribution to workplace dynamics knowing full well that’s what separates the good from the exceptional.

Her attention to time, details, and agenda specifics make her helpful, yet it's her attention to team dynamics, energy, mood, non-verbals, and flow that make her invaluable. Just as important as what the group is trying to achieve is the HOW the group is trying to achieve it, and Chris focuses her energy there to make sure you are making the progress you need.

Chris creates collaborative competition and competitive collaboration with ease and skillfulness. Through problem solving, games, and activities, ‘intentional hoop-la’ is all about exposing peoples’ often-hidden talents, unleashing their competitive spirits, and letting their exceptional selves shine - all while building connection and sharing smiles.
