Welcome

My name is Chris and I'm a personal development coach from the Bernese Highlands.

I help people to develop the competences they want or need, become more confident, and be more content in work and life.

My mission

Think about yourself for a moment.

Have you recently encountered a challenge at work or home that you wish you could have handled better? For example:

  • Is all that stress growing over your head? And are you just putting out fires everywhere?
  • Is your boss driving you crazy and you just need a way to manage him or her better?
  • Do you feel that you could be more productive or creative and that you need to rekindle your inner flame?
  • Or is this upcoming presentation freaking you out and do you admire people who can just talk in front of an audience so easily?

Dealing with these and similar situations can be so demanding, so painful, and can cost so much energy and time.

Indeed, challenges come in many forms. But it is my belief that we can overcome and prepare for them with the right competences. And if we are prepared, we can engage all challenges more confidently and calmly, and lead more content lives.

To develop and strengthen our competences, the help of someone else can be invaluable. Sometimes we could use a friend for company, or an ally for support. But sometimes we need someone who challenges us, who is asking the tough questions. Someone to hold us accountable, to help us leave the comfort zone. Someone who believes in us.

My mission is to be that someone for you. I would gladly accompany and sustain you.

So if you want to develop or strengthen your resilience, grit, people management, productivity, charisma, or other competence, let me help.

Testimonials

Some of my former clients have written testimonials which you can find here unabridged. My gratitude belongs to the authors. I did not translate the testimonials to keep the original tonality intact.

“After two months of coaching with Chris, my attitude about myself and my career has radically shifted. I was caught up in a spiral of unproductivity that resulted in an oppressive feeling of self-doubt and powerlessness. It was astonishing for me to realize how after only one session with Chris, I was starting to see my situation from a completely different perspective. Chris carefully listened to me and guided me to come up with solutions and ways to overcome my problems on my own based on my self-awareness. Thank you Chris for your insightful questions and your unwavering support, I now feel more self-confident and motivated to achieve my goals.”
Marine, Paris, France

“Christian machte auf mich einen sehr erfahrenen und vertrauenswürdigen Eindruck als Coach. Von Beginn an habe ich mich von ihm gut aufgenommen und verstanden gefühlt. Seine ruhige Art während der Sitzung hat sich auf mich übertragen und somit konnte ich komplett entspannt und ohne Bedenken ihm mein Anliegen anvertrauen und auf seine weiteren Fragen eingehen. Ich hatte das Gefühl, mit Christian auf einer Augenhöhe zu reden und habe mich dabei sehr wohl gefühlt. Mein erster Schritt Richtung Ziel ist getan und damit bin ich Christian sehr dankbar und würde mich jederzeit wieder an ihn wenden.”
Evgenia, Berlin, Deutschland

“During my coaching session with Christian I perceived him as a calm and active listener, asking the right and very precise questions to understand not only the situation I was describing but probing questions to go beyond, not only focusing on what I was saying but also reading between the lines. Coaching seems to be the most natural thing for him and his charisma helped me stay focused and calm (even though the subject did get me all excited). He can go a long way helping people help themselves.”
Brigitte, Fort Smith, Arkansas, USA
“Die Sitzungen mit Chris waren sehr hilfreich und spannend zugleich. Ich habe viel gelernt über mich selber, und wo der Haken für mein Problem liegt. Chris hat mir aufmerksam und verständnisvoll zugehört, die richtigen Fragen zur richtigen Zeit gestellt, wodurch schnell klar wurde, wo bei mir der Wurm drin steckt. Durch seine innovativen und hilfreichen Übungen habe ich gelernt, mein Problem anzupacken.”
Sophia, Zürich, Schweiz

“When I started my coaching journey with Chris, I was struggling to improve my resilience against stress. Chris’s support has been pivotal in achieving this goal. He patiently guided me in understanding my problems, encouraging me to contextualize and define them more precisely. He then skillfully helped me build a strategy to proactively foster my awareness and become more resilient, which included many effective exercises. Throughout our sessions together, Chris has always managed to find the sweet spot between reassuring and pushing me. He carefully listened to all my thoughts and worries, but he also wisely shared his perspective and suggestions when needed. I “walked in” worn out by a prolonged period of stress in my private life. Three months later, I “walked out” confident that no problem is insurmountable if you have the right tools and resources to deal with it. I learned that, with consistency and some extra practice, I can handle even the biggest challenges in a sustainable and constructive way. Thank you, Chris, for your unconditional and empowering trust in me laughing
Chiara, Zurich, Switzerland

“Nach einem Stellenwechsel hatte ich Anfangsschwierigkeiten mit meiner Chefin. Wir sind sehr unterschiedliche Charaktere mit ganz verschiedenen Arbeitsweisen. Christian Ewert hat mir gezeigt, wie wir einen konstruktiven Umgang mit unseren Unterschieden finden. Seither funktioniert unsere Zusammenarbeit viel erfolgreicher.”
Joseph, Davos, Schweiz

“Ein grosses dickes Dankeschön an Chris, für sein präsentes Zuhören, seine bedachten Fragen und seine beständige Unterstützung/Begleitung. Durch seine unaufgeregte Art hat er mich bei der Hand genommen und mich geduldig aus meiner Situation geleitet. Mit Chris habe ich es geschafft mir neue Motivation für mein Projekt zu geben, wie aber auch Methoden zum Umgang mit meinen Stolpersteinen zu finden.”
Franziska, Zürich, Schweiz

“Chris hebt sich durch sein Einfühlungsvermögen und die speziell angenehme Art und Weise, Coachings durchzuführen, von seiner Konkurrenz klar ab. Seine ruhige, empathische Vorgangsweise wie auch die seriöse Vorbereitung und Verarbeitung der neu gewonnenen Erkenntnisse und deren Integration ins Alltagsleben verhilft zu einer aktiven Umsetzung von gemeinsam erarbeiteten Lösungsansätzen. Die Rollenspiele verhalfen mir, mich mit der jeweiligen Situation lösungsorientiert und authentisch auseinanderzusetzen. Corona-bedingt wurden die Coachings via Videocall durchgeführt, was für mich keineswegs als Störfaktor empfunden wurde. Der zeitintensive Anreiseweg aus dem Wallis wurde dadurch vermieden.”
Paula, Wallis, Schweiz

“Ich fühlte mich im Coaching durchgehend wohl und konnte mich demnach schnell öffnen. Chris ließ mir den nötigen Raum das Anliegen zu formulieren und die Unterthemen herauszuarbeiten. Alles geleitet durch die wirkungsvollen, nützlichen Fragen, die er mir gestellt hat, seine methodische Sicherheit und seine angenehme Persönlichkeit. Insgesamt hat mich die Feinfühligkeit von Chris, sein gutes Ohr und der stetige Blick auf meine Selbstwirksamkeit und Selbstbefähigung beeindruckt. Sein breites Wissen und die dosierte Weitergabe von praktischen Tipps zum konkreten Anliegen haben mir enorm geholfen. Ich gehe nun viel gestärkter und gelassener mit meinem Anliegen um und es ist diesbezüglich wieder mehr Leichtigkeit in mein Leben gekommen.”
Christiane, Utzenaich, Oberösterreich

“I lost my job a few months ago. As I paused for a while to think about what I really want, I only knew that I want to help people and make an impact on their health and well-being.

However, I didn’t know which type of job could fulfil my aspirations and competencies. Talking with Chris has been an eye-opener for me. He helped me to listen to my gut feeling and we brainstormed on the various things I enjoy, either professionally or privately. He helped me realize that I can transform one of my passions into a job. He guided me and gave me tips on the items I should integrate into my feasibility analysis. Chris saved me a lot of time and I have now a clear career objective. I would recommend Chris for his out of the box thinking, kindness and realistic approach.”
Anne, Zurich, Switzerland

“Chris is skilled at asking the right questions that enable the coachee to move forward. He works in a structured way and is an excellent listener, while also making sure that the coachee remains active throughout the process. His method leads to tangible progress and outcomes. Highly recommended!”
Simonetta, Lausanne, Switzerland
“Chris is extremely easy to talk to and has a real talent for listening. He understands the struggles which prevent you from moving forward and quickly comes up with good strategies to overcome these. He also offers good tips on how to keep motivated and thinking positively.”
Kerri, Zurich, Switzerland

“I connected with Chris through his pro-bono work for the Zurich Job Alliance which supports people looking for a new professional role. I felt a bit lost at that point in my search so asked Chris to help me work through some decisions about what I wanted to do next professionally and to get to a clear decision

Each session involved me talking and Chris listening (which he does very well) while asking questions to help me progress in my thinking. I left each session motivated to take concrete actions towards achieving my goal. When I eventually came to my decision it absolutely felt right in my gut!!”
Karin, Zurich, Switzerland
