Hi Coach, I’m currently in Amsterdam, preparing to speak at an event for the next couple of days. This morning, I decided to hit the hotel gym. Now, as someone who’s 42 years old and never really enjoyed gyms—especially spaces dominated by men—I’ve always felt a bit out of place. I’ve never been great with confrontational situations, and I’m pretty introverted. As an introvert, I love spending time with specific people for long periods, but when I’m in public places like gyms or travelling...

Hi Coach, In early ‘21, a call from a prospective client stuck with me. “Chris, we’ve tried to do this ourselves, but we can’t. We need your help. Can you help us?” Six months before, this European B2B company held a private digital sales and marketing workshop. The team left the workshop excited and motivated, convinced they could handle it independently. But after a few months, they hit the same challenges many organisations face: they got in their own way. Here’s what typically happens:...

Hi Coach, As we approach the weekend, I find myself inspired by something Simon Sinek said a long time ago - Always to be willing to read and learn outside of where you’re comfortable and what’s already known to you. With that in mind, I want to shake things up and dive into some new content. And who better to ask for recommendations than this amazing community of coaches and consultants? So here’s my ask: What’s the single best book, podcast, or article you’ve come across this year? It could...

H Coach, I’m working with a client who wants to improve their leadership communication skills. Leadership is mostly about soft skills and communication, which are crucial but often hard to measure. So, how do we know if we’re growing consistently as leaders? In one of our sessions, we pinpointed the core behaviours of a leader and figured out how to put actual numbers on them. By focusing on leading indicators, we can better predict and influence the desired outcomes, such as reducing staff...

Hi Coach, For a long time, when I was coaching the They Ask You Answer clients, I heard things like, “Chris, thanks, you’ve been great, but I think we don’t need you anymore.” They would quit the program far too early, just when we were about to make real, transformational progress. It was incredibly frustrating. Clients would stop early, and our work together would quickly unravel because it hadn’t taken root in their organisation. Even worse, some clients would say they weren’t making...

Hi Coach, I’m excited to share a deeply personal and revealing conversation I recently had on the “1,000 Routes” podcast with my good friend and former colleague, Nick Bennett. In this episode, “The Chris Marr Route,” I discuss my journey from entrepreneur to employee and back to entrepreneur. I loved this chat with Nick because he drew out of me a very honest insight, especially into my recent career transition. If you’re interested in learning more about me and how I’m handling my work and...

Hi Coach, Next month marks a personal milestone for me—five years since I made a decision that profoundly changed my life. I don’t talk about it often because it feels like a story that’s still being written. Five years ago, I chose to give up alcohol. Not because I struggled with alcoholism but because I sensed it was holding me back from reaching my full potential. At the time, it was a tough choice, more about what I stood to gain than what I was leaving behind. Reflecting on this...

Hi Coach, A few years ago, I was on a call that marked one of the lowest points in my coaching career. The client had initiated the meeting, which was a red flag from the start. As we began discussing, it quickly became clear we were not on the same page. The conversation escalated into a heated debate—frustration was high on both sides and unfortunately, things spiralled from there. In an intense moment, I tried to diffuse the situation by urging everyone to calm down, adding fuel to the...
