Chris Bittinger has been where you are.

Chris has come home from past jobs and thought, “What am I doing?” He’s asked himself, “What is my cause?” He’s wondered, “Is this the best use of my time and talents?”

From a simple, self-commissioned initiative to meet with 50 people in 90 days, Chris discovered what he really wanted to do with his life—help every leader in Indianapolis flourish and succeed.
