Chris puts derailed workplace relationships back on track. Senior managers and HR professionals hire Chris when they recognize the need for an experienced, objective facilitator to transform high-stakes or seemingly impossible internal disputes into cooperation and employee efficiency.
With 26 years of full time experience, a client roster of hundreds of notable organizations and a track record of over 1,750 cases, Chris is among the most seasoned conflict management professionals on the West Coast. He has amassed over 5,000 hours of experience teaching dispute resolution and related skills grounded in his real-world experience.
In one instructive case, a despairing CEO sought out Chris to address a conflict between two high-level executives. If their relationship continued to deteriorate, the CEO feared, productivity would continue to degrade, morale would implode, and the feud might become public. With so much at risk, Chris applied his five-step process to bring both managers together. He helped them craft an agreement to enhance their interactions and, significantly, improve how they viewed each other. Grateful, the CEO stopped worrying about the collapse of her executive team.
Chris lives in Oregon in a 1908 farmhouse on 26 Clackamas County acres with his wife, two sons, dogs, horses, chickens and other critters. When not fussing around on the property, he’s sailing Zeitgeist on the Columbia River, cycling, adding birds to his list or gazing via telescope at the vastness of space.
