I had the pleasure of witnessing Coach DeVries mentor and coach both of my high school boys in club and high school soccer. It was amazing to see him use leadership and business techniques to teach and lead both of these teams. He used the DISC personality assessment to adapt his teaching and communication styles to different players and the teams as a whole to improve player skill and leadership.
Christian is a very focused leader utilizing his skills in listening, analyzing, and problem-solving. I attended just one of Christian's "connection" workshops and I continue to learn from the experience, often improving my communications by remembering his lessons.
Coach DeVries is a mentor, leader, and most of all a friend of mine. Through his leadership and generosity I was given the opportunity to grow as an athlete, student, but most of all into a confident man. I owe a lot to him as a coach, the values he instills in his players and students are changes that last a lifetime.
Christian is a wonderful coach and leadership trainer. He took on working with my son to help him develop his leadership and communication skills. The results were fantastic. Over the course of a few weeks, I could see my son becoming a better communicator with adults and becoming a leader with his teammates. When you work with Christian you will receive inspiration and activities that allow you to improve on a continual basis. Christian is a "Coach" who will believe in you.
