"I first met Chris as a coach and trainer related to CliftonStrengths and the Enneagram. Both were tools that I was familiar with, but Chris helped me see them in new ways, and helped me to begin to use and develop those aspects of myself more fully. I count myself lucky to have been coached and trained by Chris. Our interactions always leave me with new insights!"
"I always walk away from my coaching sessions with Chris Heinz clearer about my purpose! He has a divine consultative approach to coaching that is so authentic and effective!"
"Coaching helped me identify my strengths, which in turn helped me understand what to prioritize in my work and my sense of calling. I have newfound clarity and confidence."
"I worked with Chris as my coach early in my journey as an entrepreneur. I was trying to find my niche. I was trying to set some priorities. And I was trying to make the hard decision to leave my day job and go into consulting full time. Chris walked with me through these decisions, asking thoughtful questions and offering unwavering encouragement. He made me believe I could do more than I ever imagined and I’ll always be grateful! "
"I had the pleasure of working with Chris for 8 years at EnergyCAP, LLC. Chris has a way of asking questions and listening to help a person come to conclusions on their own when seeking direction for decisions. He always took time to listen and understand my concerns. He is an engaging communicator, skilled at presenting information and made me feel like my conversations with him were the most important thing he had to do at the time. He was a great listener and made me feel like my contributions were valuable."
"As a result of my coaching with Chris, I have been able to change in ways I have never had the ability to before. Two words, Breakthrough and Freedom. I am Grateful!"
