Creating the space for people to reach their potential and together create astonishing results.

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n the 13+ years that I’ve been helping individuals, teams and organizations improve, I’ve noticed they all struggle with the same problem – trying to do too much, without enough clarity. Attempts at making improvements grind to a halt, bogged down by days filled with interruptions and “urgent” matters, unaware that the impact is dragging the company down, like an anchor dragging in the sand.

Happy, motivated people deliver the best results. For individuals, I’ve led hundreds from overwhelm to focus and flow. award to managing work. I’ve advised, coached and trained teams and management inside organizations to accelerate delivery of the right solutions that delight customers. Through Innovation Games®, I help organizations use collaborative play to tap into true innovation.

You may ask “Why would a longtime applied organization and leadership guy like Christopher hire an organizational coach?” Simple, I wasn’t getting the change done on my own. They saved us time and money getting up to speed on something I “know about” but have little expertise in. I am more credible in the eyes of my team by engaging a true expert. The results and impact are already accruing.”[/imgblockquote]

[imgblockquote img=/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/JebPic-1.png cite=”Jeb Bisson, IT Manager / Lead Architect, RBB Innovations” ]”Before working with We Come Alive, we had trouble organizing ourselves and really understanding how to work together as a team. Not just developers but as a company including managers. They helped to increase communication company wide and increase productivity and organization. Using their expertise in Agile, they set us on the right path to company wide success. We still use the ideas and principals they set out for us to this day.”[/imgblockquote]

Gerry is passionate about building communities and is a strong connecting force in building a shared purpose and aligning people towards achieving a shared vision through action. This of course makes him an exceptional agile coach and trainer.”[/imgblockquote]

I enjoyed the creativity in their approach to developing a self managing high performance software development team. I would recommend them to any organization looking to take their IT development to a new level of quality, responsiveness and productivity (not to mention fun).[/imgblockquote]
