We’re drawn to leaders with Core Presence™.  Authentic. Fierce & Focused. Capable of holding complexity while maintaining calm under pressure. Accountable.  And, because they lead from heart-felt values, we want to follow them.

Like magnets, they draw out the best in us.

At Q4 we take a whole person approach to leadership coaching, which really boils down to cultivating attention and sharpening practices where you live and work.

Your primary source of power comes not from your position or rank, but from those qualities that enable you to connect, inspire, and engage with others toward effective action. In short, these personal qualities reflect Core Presence™.

Satisfied Clients

Chris is a ‘full service coach,’ one who was able to respond my needs of the moment. She isn’t constrained by the pretenses of her profession.

Chris is incredibly flexible and responsive, yet has challenged me to stand in my power and build my capacity as a professional. She has a huge range of influence, addressing the emotional and energetic, but she’s also practical about business strategies. I needed a ‘full service coach’ as I clarified my vision and found my strength. I have come to rely on her quiet, wise guidance.

Laura Grisolano

JD, Bridge Mediation & Leadership Solutions

An excellent coach can bring out the best in a person. Dr. Chris did just that! While some “experts” resort to jargon and fast talk to give the impression of sophistication and depth, Chris lead with honesty and a substantial understanding of professional development.

She possesses “passion” for this work, and she helped me tap my own passion too. By sticking to tangible, attainable goals and exercises for my development and improvement, she helped me to better appreciate others’ points of view and expectations, and to improve my level of trust with people. I would, without hesitation, highly recommend Dr. Chris to bring out your best.

Richard Iniguez

Sales Manager, Veolia Environmental Technical

Having Dr. Chris to bounce off ideas and solutions regarding work dilemmas has been great for building work relationships in my new role. I’ve learned that resolving an issue is not always about the work, but about the impact the solution has on the people involved and the need to keep the lines of communication open at all times.

With her suggestions and feedback many situations presented have turned into win-win opportunities for everyone involved. Thanks Chris for your honest feedback and patience.

Kimberly Hatchett

Sr. Director, Blue Chip Technical Support, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois

Working with Chris, I began to appreciate that my capacity to lead and transform my organization could only increase through others. At first “mindfulness” sounded to me like squishy overused synonym for group hugs and undisciplined leadership

I’m very thankful that I was open-minded enough to listen, read and learn about the science behind Chris’s Core Presence Coaching™ process, based in mindfulness practices. By acknowledging and appreciating the need to connect with others, and practicing mindful awareness, I was able to engage more deliberately with co-workers and lead in the organization.
