“Imagine waking up every day inspired, and going to bed every night fulfilled.” ~ Simon Snick
Your attitude and mind set as a leader sets the tone and creates the energy that becomes the culture of your organization. This culture creates the right conditions and environment seen and unseen that brings out the best in everyone who is a part of it.
A good leader holds a clear and inspiring vision that creates followers of that vision. People desire and are motivated to be a part of the “Vision” because of what they will gain and benefit from by being part of it.
Successful leaders know the power of workplace culture. They unite employees around a small, compelling set of principles that generate business success. With an understanding of culture, you can create a workplace where people are doing the right work in an organization where they have a real sense of connection and belonging. The results: increased profits, and an inspired and engaged team.
Corporate culture is the pervasive values, beliefs and attitudes that characterize a company and guide its practices. It is the spoken and unspoken ways in which employees, vendors and clients think, relate and interact with each other.
To some extent, a company’s internal culture may be articulated in its mission statement or vision statement. Elements of corporate culture include a company’s physical environment, human resources practices and the staff itself. Corporate culture is also reflected in the degree of emphasis placed on various defining elements such as hierarchy, process, innovation, collaboration, competition, community involvement and social engagement.
Corporate culture is one of the key drivers for the success – or failure – of an organization. A good, well-aligned culture can propel it to success. However, the wrong culture will stifle its ability to adapt to a fast-changing world. So, how do you attempt to understand your corporate culture? And what steps can you take to create a strong corporate culture that will best support your organization’s activities.
Corporate culture is very important to the success of a business. The social and human systems side of work requires as much attention as the financial side: If you neglect your cultural influences, your long-term economic performance will suffer.
By creating and encouraging a consistent and cohesive culture, you build a strong foundation for meaningful and enjoyable work. That is the type of culture that breeds high performance, loyalty and commitment.

Chris helped me to both define and confidently own my gifts and the value of my Leadership style and approach. He worked with who I was as a unique leader versus trying to fit me into a predefined leadership style or definition. He guided me with a clarity which only comes from an expert who knows this terrain first hand. He listened deeply, understood my needs and encouraged me to play to my strengths of openness, vulnerability and transparency. This approach completely transformed me as a leader and the results are incredible for me and my team. I can wholeheartedly recommend Chris’ coaching services to you without reservation!

As a business owner, one of the inescapable truths is that I must continue to invest in my business in order to help it grow and to increase my impact. As a Teacher, Healer and Guide, I believe it’s even more crucial to continue to invest in my own expansion as a transformational force in the world. When I began to work with Chris, I hoped I would get a bit of both. I can say without hesitation that I have grown professionally and personally on every level, and truly created far more impact than I thought possible in one year. To say this was a good investment would be completely inadequate. Not only did Chris coaching meet my needs and deliver on his promise, he has far exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend Chris to anyone who is seeking that next level in their business and life.

Chris Sarris is absolutely stellar coach. What I see in Chris is a man who models the higher road of authenticity, integrity, passion and a love of all life. Chris is a deeply intuitive listener and “gets things” a deeper levels then I have experienced with other coaches and teachers. Chris is a compassionate coach, teacher, and a champion of the human spirit. Coaching with Chris is a transforming and empowering experience. He is able to see the best and fullest potential in someone, to mirror and draw it out, call it forth, and help them embrace their own greatness. I often recommend friends and clients to him.

Usually I consider a workshop, book, lecture, etc. valuable when I have at least one thing that I can take away with me. Chris’s workshop gave me several wonderful, powerful tools to use in my daily life. I have never felt more empowered and connect to my truth. Thank you Chris for taking our group on this journey! I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to improve their life, learn more about themselves and the beliefs that create their reality.
