Learning about The Responsibility Process? from Christopher with my management team was the most important hour I've spent in months.

John Gordon, SVP Technology Fidelity National Information Services

My sincere gratitude for the life-changing information you shared during my leadership meeting in Las Vegas. The responses were extremely positive. The energy and commitment to live a life of personal responsibility that my leadership team came away with after your seminar was fantastic. The great part about this is that I still see the same level of energy and commitment 2 weeks later. Thank you so much for your message!

Anthony E. Bowman, West Area VP Customer Service Verizon Wireless

I loved his comments about the most powerful member of the team. I highly recommend Christopher as a speaker and I encourage you to read his book, Teamwork Is An Individual Skill.

Scott Bemis, President & Publisher Denver Business Journal

You were a hit! Without a question, we made the right choice in asking you to launch our national conference, and we look forward to working with you again. It's a pleasure to engage someone who walks his talk.

Peter Jenkins, JD, President

That was terrific. My commitment to your approach is very strong. More importantly, my leadership is enthused.
