Chris Goodman is a leading life and business coach for high-performers. His clients include founders, executives, CEOs, leaders in real estate, Hollywood influencers, other coaches, and a variety of small business owners across dozens of industries.
Simply put, Chris is the executive coach for business owners who want to change their lives and become their BEST.
He brings 15,000 hours of coaching and training, 5 years of corporate litigation experience, plus a sales record of $21,000,000+ to every conversation.
Over the years, Chris has developed a reputation for asking tough, transformative questions in an approachable way. Or as one client recently put it, “[Chris] pushes me harder than anyone ever has with a smile, a nudge, and a question that always blows my mind.”
Today he specializes in coaching men & women in their mindset on topics like leadership, personal development, team building, improving relationships, understanding (and predicting) human behavior, and building a lifestyle of freedom.
When they’re not coaching, Chris and his beautiful wife Lindsey (also a successful coach) travel, enjoy being “foodies” and bourbon enthusiasts, and recently moved back to the midwest after living in Southern California. Chris and Lindsey recently had their first child, Eva. They love helping people through coaching, so if you have questions just shoot them a message on social media!
Do you only coach men?
— No. I coach both men and women, and so do our Breakthrough Coaches. Communication styles or individual energies are often different between men & women, however we’ve found that our brains are mostly hardwired the same way. We coach the person (what you’re thinking or feeling in any given moment) not just the topic at hand, and therefore we believe we can help most people we encounter.
Do you only coach real estate agents?
— No. I spent a LOT of time coaching agents, and I even trained 3 Rookies of the Year. However now our team coaches business owners across the spectrum of industries, ages, and locations around the world. The variety of client experiences and challenges makes us more versatile as coaches for our clients.
Do you have your own coach?
— Yes. Right now I work with someone weekly who personally trains with Tony Robbins, Navy SEALs, and world champion athletes. I also have another coach who is leading the industry in terms of scaling a coaching business quickly, incorporating a wide variety of modalities (including somatic healing), and holds me accountable to the largest goals I’ve ever set for myself and my business. With their help, we more than doubled our business in 2021 and are on track to do that again in 2022.
I’ve only gone a few months out of the last 10 years without a coach or mentor, and my productivity and mindset were immediately affected. I always have at least one coach personally, several mentors in business, and of course I married one of the world’s most brilliant coaches…
Our Breakthrough Coaches always have at least one personal coach for themselves, coach with me personally, and invest time learning/growing personally or professionally every single day. Coaching is our passion. It’s what we live & breathe!
What is your favorite thing about coaching business owners or CEOs?
— Men and women who own a business are in a unique position to create a MASSIVE impact on the world. Their service, product, culture, and even payroll has the opportunity to change family trees, improve the planet, and make a difference on a global scale. That’s exciting to me and our team. I’ve coached business owners with annual revenues <$50k and up to $20M… regardless of their business, there is nothing more gratifying than helping someone see their potential, do the work to bring it to life, and immediately see the impact that creates around them.
It’s something special and hard to describe, and a major reason I love coaching so much.
What’s something you want people to know before they apply to work with you or your team?
— I often tease that I don’t work with ‘bubblegummers.’ My coaching style doesn’t work with people who have “one foot in and one foot out.” Our clients are ALL IN kind of people, who are serious about maximizing their life, their impact, their results, and their contribution.
