Who is Chris Power?
Born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada, my early years were tough.
A low income family and a turned in foot led to physical, mental and emotional bullying, resulting in anxiety and low self-esteem.
Despite the challenges, I had a loving family that gave me hope for the future.
I graduated High School and headed off to University where a lack of funding "encouraged" me to join the Canadian Armed Forces to finish my education.
This is when I faced my greatest challenge, finding my way back to myself. Over the next 3 years I:
saw my psychologist a lot;
escaped to my own retreat on a horse ranch;
travelled to Mount Everest Basecamp and summitted Lobuche East at 20,000ft;
facilitated a veteran retreat in Philippines;
shared my story for a number of different organizations; and
read more books than I'd ever read before; and
put time and energy into reviving my relationships.
The biggest 'aha' moment was realizing that without my job and military title, I didn't have any self confidence. I didn't even know who I was.
I'd been so focused on producing results at work that I sacrificed all other areas of my life. In the end, it wasn't worth it.
With this realization, I completed an 8 month training program to become an ICF Certified Professional Coach and Associate Certified Coach.
I now use my experience, training and education to help people build their own confidence and reach higher performance in all areas of their life.
