Season 2, Ep. 54

Meet Chris Strouthopoulos. 

His WHY is Better Way. 

Interviewed by WHY Institute Founder Dr. Gary Sanchez (Better Way).

Chris Strouthopoulos is an international life coach & leadership trainer, TEDx speaker, Himalayan mountain guide, and Ivy League educated award winning Professor. His passion is helping people tear down the internal barriers that keep them stuck, enabling them to create next level professional success and personal fulfillment. Whether it a CEO taking their company from $50 to 100 million, a student preparing for final exams, or a climber tackling their first Himalayan peak, he noticed that it’s the exact same crap holding people back: self-doubt, fear of failure, fear of judgment, perfectionism, and a handful of other limiting beliefs. Obsessed with freeing himself and others from these self-imposed limits, Chris spent 20+ years discovering and developing a series of experiential activities that rapidly create profound personal breakthroughs. He loves facilitating this transformational process through 1:1 coaching and workshops for corporate leadership teams. Some other tidbits: he’s organized solar service projects for Buddhist monasteries in Tibet, climbed Yosemite’s El Capitan, pioneered ski descents in Alaska, and is currently moving his family back to the USA after two years living in Luxembourg.
