CHRIS YONKER is a lifelong student of human potential who embraces a uniquely collaborative approach to professional and personal development; one that encompasses the principles of leadership, classical sales training, and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). He works with senior executives, entrepreneurs and highly motivated salespeople who aspire to top levels of performance and achievement. His gift is in helping people define their improvement initiatives, set realistic goals for executing them, and align their natural abilities with their core values to create extraordinary outcomes, both in business and in life.
Early on, Chris was impressed by the variety of ways in which people addressed challenges in their lives, handled pressure, or overcame adversity to achieve their goals.
Whether he is addressing the qualities that make great athletes excel on the field of battle, drive musicians to the top of their craft, or motivate businesspeople to step up and reap greater rewards for their work, Chris tailors his message of achievement. Having recognized and maximized his own breakthroughs, he knows how to set people up emotionally for success. He excels at establishing an environment of mutual trust in which his clients can find their “zone” and stave off professional burnout.
Drawing upon his broad-based experience of working with Fortune 100 companies, passionate entrepreneurs, celebrities, and top sales professionals, Chris has honed a proprietary process that instills confidence in his clients, whether they are on a new path in business, or just hitting their stride. He is a highly sought-after speaker and workshop facilitator whose programs are engineered to meet the demands and exceed the expectations of high-end achievers. An accomplished martial artist and practitioner of yoga, Chris extracts valuable business lessons through Sanchin-Ryu karate—in which he holds a 7th degree black belt—and Ashtanga yoga philosophy.
