People first. It’s how I live my life.

Meet Christopher D. Connors

I’m in the people business. This begins with the people I love most in this world: my beautiful wife; three rambunctious, sports-loving boys; and my parents and brothers. This passion for people connects to you and your people. This enthusiasm drives how I partner with you in creating a culture, team, career—and life—that brings you and your team success, joy, and peace of mind.

Christopher D. Connors Portrait

My mission is to help you and your organization achieve your biggest goals by using emotional intelligence and an action-oriented approach to leadership to your advantage. I accomplish this through keynotes, team-building workshops, executive coaching, consulting, trainings and writing.

I'm the author of three bestselling books. My newest book, The Champion Leader, was published by Wiley in May 2024. Emotional Intelligence for the Modern Leader is one of the bestselling emotional intelligence books in the world. The Value of You has helped thousands of people reinvent themselves by living a positive, values-based life.  My writing has appeared on CNBC, World Economic Forum, Virgin, Quartz, Thrive Global and Medium. I've appeared on award-winning podcasts and I've made TV appearances on FOX, ABC and more.

I believe in servant leadership and The Golden Rule—helping others, putting their needs first and treating others the way I’d like to be treated. I also believe in having fun along the way and mixing in some humor to keep us on our toes! I lead from the heart and genuinely want you and your organization to experience championship success and enduring happiness.

I received my Bachelors from Hobart College and earned my Master's from the University of Georgia with a focus on Leadership and Organizational Theory. I live in beautiful Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. You'll likely catch me on the weekends coaching my sons' youth sports teams and enjoying life with my family at the beach. We live to travel, learn, grow and love. We treasure special time spent with one another, whether that's playing baseball or enjoying the simple things in life on a sunny, blue sky day.
