Chris switched career in his early 40s and in this interview we find out about what led him to do that. We also hear about his family dynamics growing up (with a Father who left to work in Saudi Arabia) and the impact that had on them, and how he ended up in New Zealand. He now works helping people to find their purpose and in particular coaches people about building Winning Habits. I really enjoyed hearing about his life and some of his insights and I know you will too.

He says: "I believe we are all our habits, the sum of our habits. What we enjoy, what we create, the partner we may or may not end up with. Everything. At the end of the day worthy lives and achievements are creating through habits, with often perseverance, self-discipline and resilience being the most important traits."

About Chris: I am a mindset and performance coach on developing and sustaining Winning Habits.
A former career engineer, I worked internationally in engineering for twenty years chiefly in consulting engineering and gave this away in 2011/12 to find another place. The place being driven by a calling to be more engaged with people and teams to enable them to perform, repeatedly, at a high level.
The habits idea is anchored in my belief system that we are all our habits, from how we dream, think, behave, talk and lead. Once a purpose focussed routine is established the sky is the limit. My purpose is for individuals, teams and organizations to be exceptional.
