Testimonials

Here’s what my clients say about me:

J.D. Gershbein, CEO Professional Speaker and Consultant

Chris Yonker is a game-changer. From the moment he hits the stage, you are keenly aware that he is a fine-tuned engine of knowledge and inspiration. If you aspire to the highest level of performance, then this is the guy to engage.

Avin Kline, CEO Web Success Agency

Chris was able to help me and my company create amazing results. Not only did I grow our revenue to record numbers, I was able to double my time off. Chris’ real world teaching is relevant to people who are building companies like myself.

Angelique Rewers, CEO www.thecorporateagent.com

The fascinating thing about Chris is his ability to effortlessly see through the extraneous noise and immediately zero in on the core issue that stands between you and what you really want… which would be incredibly valuable in and of itself. But Chris is also masterful at helping to shift--not just your perspective, but the way you think and make decisions--so that you can overcome inertia in your business or life, get off of "auto pilot" and actually make the change you tell yourself you want to make, but don't know where to start.

I've never seen anyone be able to cut through to help people and teams figure out what it is they really want and get the direction and clarity of thought that they need. It's an incredible skill and one that I have found to be priceless and irreplaceable.

Mike Allen, 3M

I have been coaching with Chris for over 5 years. He has been able to point out things to me I could not see and show me how to improve them. I love Chris' authenticity—you never wonder where he stands. I don't like downtime and appreciate his direct approach. 
I owe a lot to Chris, as his coaching has helped me be one of the top performers at the division of 3M where I work.

Mitch Arnold, Lead Vocalist Wayland

Having Chris as a mentor has changed my life and the way I live and approach it. His practical teachings and simple ideals translate into a wisdom that shook my core and reshaped my entire foundation. If you're looking to uncover not only your true potential but climb the ladder to reach it, Chris Yonker is an incredible ambassador to the steps it takes to realizing the person you've always wanted to be. I've seen changes not only in my business, but in my relationships with friends and family and with myself. The path to inner peace and balance starts right here!

Dave Andrews, author of The 30-Day Sobriety Solution

Joseph Bucara, CEO JCB Financial, Inc.

I have been fortunate to work with Chris for that past four years. During that time, the size of my business has tripled, the quality of my service has improved, and the groundwork for further growth and improvement is continually being laid out.

Chris has many talents, experience, and a wealth of knowledge to pull from. More than that, Chris is a very intelligent listener. That, to me, is where the rubber meets the road and separates Chris’s authenticity from other formulaic coaching programs. His active listening and incisive questioning help separate the “scenery” of any issue from the issue itself. Once isolated and clearly defined, Chris combines his extensive knowledge and his understanding of me and my goals to help me identify what I need to 1) achieve the results I seek, and 2) continue to be true to myself.

I am honored to work with him.

Stuart Long, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Capsule Technologies

Chris was part of the team that was hired to help our organization build out an internal training program and work to get our new hires out of the gates with quick wins. Chris helped us exceed our goals in the calendar year at the end of the first quarter! Chris is genuinely dynamic. Often, you read about people advertising themselves as such, however Chris oozes charisma. He's a natural and engaging communicator.

He's one of the first people I've met who seeks to understand then be understood. This is evident in his sincerity to listen and through his thoughtful questions. He's driven to help others succeed in business and within their own personal quests. He's naturally competitive, which comes through as a great asset to help others learn the tenets of winning. Chris is not only a joy to work with, he's fun to hang out with. I highly recommend him.

Jeff Photiades, Wealth Management Advisor Northwestern Mutual

Chris strikes a balance between consulting, language, intellect, and spirituality, and he creates a space for healing, discovery, and growth. This approach assists those he works with to remove the mystery of what has been holding them back.

I've worked with Chris in both a personal and professional context, and most recently, he assisted me and my staff in developing focus to improve the health of our team. Chris’ work allowed us to discover blind spots so we could move our practice forward, and the improvements we experienced fostered growth in the areas of communication, process, and systemization.

As an organization, we have begun to overcome challenges more quickly than ever. .

Jim Campanella President, Lawn Dawg

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!

Chris R Donovan, Director of Pharmaceutical Research Lifeline Neurodiagnostic Systems Inc.

A great and insightful presentation this afternoon. Your acumen into how to uncover true functionality within both small and large organizations was enlightening. I came away more fully aware of how to enhance trust with my fellow team members. I am looking forward to applying some of the principles you taught within my organization. Bravo!

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.

David Meenely COO DGI Invisuals

We hired Chris shortly after taking ownership of DGI. One of the challenges of leading a company of over 100 employees and continuing to scale is how you prioritize and leverage leaders in your organization. Chris has an uncanny ability to clear through the ongoing demands of running a business and zero in on what is truly important. In addition, he is masterful in helping Executives work closer together to truly row in the same direction. We just completed the biggest quarter in the history of our company. Our investment in Chris is still paying dividends after the engagement.
