Chris Olex

Chris Olex is a speaker, trainer, and facilitator specializing in personal, leadership, and team development. Relying on knowledge gained from all levels of the client experience — from client management to custom program design to professional presentation — she works in partnership with a wide range of clients to deliver thoughtful engagements serving 1 to 500 participants.

As a guiding principle, Chris invites individuals to increase their self-awareness through experience, dialogue, and reflection so they can more fully understand how they show up in the world and impact other people.  Chris strives to create a-ha experiences which transform assumptions, thinking, and ultimately behavior so this can happen.  Courage, vulnerability, trust, empathy, and difficult conversations are some of her favorite topics to explore.

Chris utilizes a variety of teaching methodologies, particularly experiential learning, as a means to help clients fully connect training content to direct application in the workplace and in their personal lives.  Chris believes in the power of assessments for self-discovery, and is a certified trainer for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™, DiSC™, Emotional Intelligence, and Enneagram™.  She delivers training sessions on StrengthsFinder™ from the Gallup organization, and is continually fascinated by all the latest work on the brain and neuroscience.  Chris is a certified Coach through the ICF and a certified Dare to Lead™ facilitator of Brené Brown’s work focusing on courage.  She also runs a scoring center and consults on the Denison Organizational Culture and Leadership Development surveys.

A sample of Chris’ clients and partners include:  Harvard Business School, Colgate Palmolive, Consolidated Energy of New York City, Partners Healthcare, MIT Sloan School, Earth Science Women’s Network, and the DISSCRS symposiums on Climate Change.
