Working with Chris Yonker was one of the most significant things I’ve done in my life. When we hired Chris we had intended to just use him for succession planning but he was able to see more within the business that needed attention. I know without Chris and his guidance and advice I wouldn’t have been able or willing to learn more about myself to help myself and my family.

I began working with Chris early in 2014. My leadership team and I were very reluctant to bring on a consultant. The transformation I have seen in my leadership team has been remarkable. They have become more focused and more dedicated to our common goal than ever before. We have gone from a group of 10 individual players focused on our specialties, to a true team of engaging, challenging and accountable leaders. Chris has helped us stay focused on the big picture when daily distractions cause chaos within the organization. He has taught us to look at ourselves first before placing blame on others. This has resulted in all of us becoming better versions of ourselves. We are looking forward to a long term relationship with Chris as we prepare to take our company from good to great!

After several attempts with other coaches and consultants, Chris was the one who was able to move me and help with my transition.

Michael S. Dow, Vice President The Dow Company, Inc.

We initially hired Chris to help us work through the process of establishing a succession plan. That work went so well we retained him long-term to work with the Executive Team on assuring our company and team hits their goals . We are extremely pleased with the ROI we receive from our investment with Chris in both personal growth and professional growth.

Dave Hoefeel, President Endurance Technologies

Working with Chris has been incredibly important in my ability to navigate through so many stressful and uncertain situations we now face. With his help, my stress level and anxiety has been manageable even with all of the changes that have come so quickly these days, especially with high stress brought on by COVID-19.  With all that is happening around me, I am more centered and capable of making critical decisions from a place that is calm and has more certainty.  I am so thankful I started working with Chris before the recent events because I have a strong base to work from.
