christian-aboutI love working with leaders and their teams. My interest in leadership took shape while working in international disaster relief in places like Kosovo, Southern Sudan, and Indonesia. Regardless of how well or poorly a project was funded or designed, success was determined more by the quality of leadership and team dynamics than anything else.

The same thing was true in the communities I worked in. Communities with effective leaders, who cared about those they served, were able to grow and improve. Communities without effective leadership remained in their struggle.

It always comes back to leadership. In organizations, businesses, non-profits or communities – leadership is the key. It is the root cause. Improve the leaders and everything else improves with them. So, I’ve dedicated my life to helping others lead well.

I enjoy working with leaders who are driven to pursue their best–personally and for their teams.


My clients include Fortune 500 firms, government entities, privately held or Alaska Native-owned companies as well as mid-market companies and startups. I also continue to work with many non-profits including Catholic Social Services, Head Start Programs, Southcentral Foundation, RurAL CAP and Tanana Chiefs Conference.

I partner with clients who are typically in the CEO, President, COO, GM, or CMO role. I help them with all aspects of leadership and organizational health, growth, and development:

  • Strategy creation.
  • Board and leadership team development.
  • Building engaged, value-driven and high impact organizational cultures.
  • Executive and leadership coaching.
  • Mindset and thinking big (or aggressively).
  • Gathering deep insights about your organizational culture, process, systems and team dynamics.
  • Facilitating powerful & challenging conversations that yield actionable results.
  • Resolving conflicts in a way that build internal communications, trust and leadership effectiveness.
  • Crafting leadership succession and transition processes that preserve legacy and catalyze growth.
  • Engaging employees.
