Leadership of Purpose

Do you know your purpose? What were you uniquely created to do at home, the office, and in life? Great leadership know their calling, then create environments to be their true selves doing what they were meant to do. This goes beyond jobs or titles, to being an authentic self-leader. Do you know your purpose? Are you ready for the journey to find it?

Holistically Centered

My purpose is to help people discover their calling and to encourage its daily pursuit. This calling goes beyond my role as a coach and consultant, it inundate every aspect of my life. Know my purpose changed the way how I engage my work, the opportunities and clients I pursue, the jobs I accept and decline, and who I am every moment of the day.

Elmry fulfills my purpose helping others discover their purpose and how its pursued in the workplace. All too many people pursue jobs or titles, rather than seeking to be the unique person only they can be. Bringing this passion for life is the most valuable contribution anyone can make to their company. Living out your calling brings a creativity, ingenuity, gusto and zeal to work, for when you as true to yourself these traits naturally exude from you.

Elmry walks alongside people, teams, and organizations to find their true selves, the best version of themselves possible rather than a mirror of something else. The journey is different for everyone, but the tenants are the same. If you want to connect with this part of yourself, to take the introspective road less traveled, our support provides the questions to start the journey. We don’t possess the answers, only the deep questions inviting you to engage your journey, finding the person, team, and organization you were mean to be.

Our Clients


  • Working with Chris has been a fantastic experience. I was initially unsure what I was getting myself into with professional coaching but quickly realized it was going to be a positive experience. Chris and I worked together on several subjects including developing concise core values, understanding my supervisory style, improving company engagement and learning grit through challenging periods. The lessons I learned while working with Chris are ones that will be able to carry me through the rest of my career.

    Stephen Dragsholt, PE
  • I felt out of alignment with the company leadership. What was seen as a lack of confidence on my part was, as I realized with coaching help, a deeper issue of security and feeling safe. This has been a lifelong issue for me. Allowing myself to be challenged resulted in a sense of freedom for me to move forward as a leader who is broadcasting a path forward – as opposed to the old paradigm of seeking permission. It was a simple but profound adjustment for me. In the end, the only shift was my self-view of being secure with my decision-making and leadership abilities.

    Rick, Vice President
  • Chris' approach to coaching is genuine and transparent. He builds trust quickly and has a unique and effective way of balancing both the human and business side of coaching.

    Sara Thom, VP of Human Resources for Balfour Senior Living
  • As a head of Human Resources for a large firm, I see the traditional coaching model fall short time-and-time again. Chris' approach is unique and it works! I am grateful to have Chris as a guide to making me a better executive, and person as a whole.

About Chris

I love helping people thrive in all aspects of life. For over 10 years I have worked with business leaders helping them develop the personal and professional traits necessary to become a true leader. Many see the potential within themselves or others, yet struggle to find the courage and path to become the desired leader. I walk beside individuals seeking the road less traveled, to take a true look at themselves to identify what traits need refined, face these truths, and create a path to growth. The challenging journey becomes the crucible where individuals grow from managers to leaders to influencers.
