“C-4 Leadership provides a simple to understand, yet prolific pathway to success for anyone looking to shatter the glass ceiling in life or business. Having known Chris for more than 20 years, I have literally watched him exemplify this model in his own life and develop the C-4 Approach for transferring his unique success to others. When you work with Chris, buckle your seatbelt because you are in for one of the greatest rides of your life!”
“Chris has earned the right to share his story. I have enjoyed knowing Chris for 15 years and watching his rise from individual contributor to an executive in a global Fortune 50 company.
Over 25 years, I’ve had the opportunity to listen to many employee groups talk about their executive leadership when those leaders are not around— it is not always in the most glowing of terms. But when you talk to people in Chris’ org about him they absolutely light up! I believe the key reason for this is the priority he has put on mentoring and developing people. His team is proud to be associated with him. Chris has figured out that when you put capable people in a focused and intentional culture they produce remarkable results.
Chris Winton has something important to say about leadership. I encourage you to listen!”
