"I didn’t realize what was holding me back from getting my dream project started and bringing more joy and creativity into my life until we explored that. Now I can see how to begin and be 'unstuck.' Thanks for your gentle leadership in this exploration! I liked the weaving of many theories, techniques, and tools to reach your and our desired goals. And of course, the graphics helped us see more clearly." Cindy H. ("The Unstuck Workshop", 2022)
"I enjoyed all of it! -- the presenter, the content, the pre-reading, the pace, the participant interaction, and the reflective questions, the atmosphere of curious inquiry, the visual of our conversation....so much." Lu M. ("Cultivating Creativity in Yourself and Others," 2022)
"The questions and conversation helped me uncover an important assumption/core belief. The questions and tools are so powerful. It has me think about these as resources for "firsts" and today as an opportunity to "play" with them. " Nancy A. ("Firsts," 2022)
“[Chrissie’s] tone and pace were easy and comfortable. She led us gently through mapping with clear instructions and permission to make it work for us. The steps flowed naturally. The small group sharing times were a satisfying way to resurface from my individual exploration. And the insights this process provided me are deeply meaningful and will guide my steps ahead. This was exactly what I need, the way I needed it, when it mattered for me.” - Lonnie W. ("Creativity Roadmapping," 2022)
"Nearly everything was pitch perfect. The content was powerful, the conversations were encouraging, and the activities were engaging. The workshop had a deep impact on me, giving me a robust framework for affecting change in my life and in the life of my family and community. I was inspired to take time to reflect, to live more intentionally, and to act missionally." Geoff B. ("The Unstuck Workshop", 2022)
"The workshop was very well laid out to gently help my discovery process and help me uncover the underlying “stuckness”. I enjoyed connecting and exchanging my experiences with the fellow in breakout rooms. The overnight soak questions were wonderful and the selection of closing quotes on each day was absolutely on point!" Ellen G. ("The Unstuck Workshop," 2022)
"Loved the opportunity to really do a deep dive on what’s keeping me stuck and reframing what that process is. I just want to say, because of your course, I have already released obligations and things that take up space and weren’t truly what I love. It has been incredibly freeing and am feeling a degree of spaciousness I haven’t felt in a long time. Also allowing for more opportunities to really do the work I need to do to move forward.” Kristina D. ("The Unstuck Workshop," 2022)
"I enjoyed the templates and structure and spending time with creative people. Since I don’t really consider myself an artist or talented (yet), it’s nice to get to play and practice with people who will be welcoming and accepting" Hester D. ("Everyday Sketchnoting" Workshop, 2022)
"I enjoyed being part of a supportive community of fellow seekers. The flow of the workshop worked well. Two hours is a good chunk of time without being overwhelming." - Bruce A. ("Creativity Roadmapping" Workshop, 2022)
"Chrissie was a great partner is preparing for the session and absorbing our input. She had great ideas for the session itself. It all honestly felt very seamless from our perspective and we appreciate it very much. Both the planning and (attending) leadership teams were wowed by the output. Having the digital output so quickly afterwards too was impressive and valuable."
- Sarah Johns, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (2023)
"Haley's graphic illustration provided a colorful, engaging, and intriguing representation of a very challenging and complex topic - gun and community violence. It added creativity and attention to detail to the event and produced a powerful artifact to preserve key insights going forward. She was flexible, asked good questions, and managed the logistics seamlessly. She also delivered the final product to our office, which was much appreciated."
- Joe Moorman, ImpactED (2022)
