Coach Christopher

At my core, I’m a multi-dimensional thinker & holistic problem-solver driven to co-create positive, impactful shifts in the lives of people I work alongside.

My career path & life experiences have forged a unique ability for me to combine analytical prowess, social intelligence skills & intuition to connect, communicate & collaborate with diverse leaders, high performers & teams across the globe.

As a former professional beach volleyball player (AVP) and NCAA Division 1 collegiate athlete (UNH & UConn) I’ve developed a clear understanding of the critical dynamics necessary to persevere & win – individually and as a team.

As a career professional I’ve been fortunate to speak professionally on international stages, creating fulfilling opportunities to lead, train, coach, consult & advise thousands of people in the smallest startups and largest corporations. My 20+ year career can be summarized into 3 areas of expertise:

Fostering Growth:
Leaders, Teams & Performance

Performance Agility:
Identifying Blockages to Improvement

Leadership Development:
Adaptive Communication + Holistic Leadership

Coach Debbi

I’m an executive coach from New Zealand helping leaders communicate in confident, authentic ways, building uplifting, positive change along the way. Since entering the coaching industry four years ago, I’ve coached over 9,000 sessions with leaders across all continents and 35 countries, most of whom are foreign born. Many were collegiate athletes. I’m now working towards a Master Certified Coach certification with the International Coaching Federation.

Football’s a huge theme in my life with my oldest son becoming the first footballer in our region to gain entry into Harvard University as a footballer and student of finance and economics. (Fall 2025 commences his studies.) My husband, his private coach, played football for Mississippi State University; so, I understand the discipline and grit required for excellent leadership and sports.

I come to coaching having worked as a business reporter for the Economist, the Financial Times of London, National Public Radio, and the Guardian with global audiences in the millions. I’ve reported on Olympic athletes and entrepreneurs in the sports industry as part of this coverage. I’ve always reported on the underdog and earned a UN Foundation press fellowship for reporting on the creative ways that women save their earnings when banks carve them out of their system.

I relate to athletes having reinvented myself three times across three continents and industries, most recently leaving academia after 19 years of service to retrain as a coach. I get to hear what’s on the minds of many and write on Medium on confidence, leadership, reinvention, cultural confusion, brevity, and clarity.

I’m a guest speaker and trainer for corporations and host two podcasts: the Sage Sayers on hacks for your biggest communications challenges and immigrant stories and then Competency No 5, on maintaining presence when we coach, lead, and live our lives. Both are on Apple.

With this experience and later navigating the complex terrains of his early career on Wall Street, Jake brings a unique global and business perspective to his culture change work. Combining business rigor with behavioral science led him to join Gallup as a consultant, where he used data, science, and business expertise to create measurable change. Today, he brings this passion and know-how into your business, accelerating growth for better results, faster.

Envision your organization as place where everyone shows up inspired and finishes work fulfilled, able to do what they do best to make a difference in what they care about most. Jake helps create this environment by using a strengths-based framework to construct a clear and consistent identity from the individual leader to the leadership team and, ultimately, to the organization. This framework helps team members thrive and fosters a customer-centric culture, aligning purpose, brand, and performance.

Jake’s commitment to making real, evidence-based change has delivered tangible, measurable results. He has significantly increased employee retention by implementing strategic initiatives and achieved substantial cost savings for many organizations. He has been privileged to serve renowned clients such as J&J, Roche, Accenture, Blackrock, Merrill Lynch, MARS INC, demonstrating his reach and reputation for delivering results.
