“I inspire leaders to be extraordinary. Everything I do is designed to catalyze growth in others and propel them toward a better version of themselves, so they can more meaningfully touch the lives of others in the work they do each day. When I show up, I bring energy, passion, skill, insight, humor, expertise, and authenticity. I provide leaders and teams with world-class resources and professionally prepared, dynamically delivered training experiences that accelerate personal and professional transformation. I believe that to transform a business or team you first need to transform yourself. Transform You. Transform Business.” — Christopher Meade, PhD
