SHOW NOTES

Chris Hallberg one of Inc. magazine’s Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts has been taking big risks and getting outside of his comfort zone his entire life.

He joined the Army National Guard Military Police at 17, was an officer at a Maximum Security prison at 20. By the ripe age of 23, he was a Sergeant in both organizations leading other officers and soldiers in dynamic and challenging environments.

After serving in uniform, he began his career in sales and marketing and quickly became the #1 producing Sales Representative. Chris then leveraged all of his leadership experience and training and then led several sales teams to success.  As Sales Manager, he took a $3M Remodeling company and helped them grow to $8M in 3 years, and then as VP of Sales took a $9M Restoration company and led them to $20M in revenue in just 1 year.  After two years over $25M in revenue, the company was successfully sold to a private equity group.

Chris then started his own energy efficient remodeling business in 2009 at the onset of the “great recession” and despite difficult market conditions he quickly scaled the business to $2M in sales, and sold the company after two years of profitable operations with over 20% Net Profit to the bottom line.

After selling his business Chris started to help other entrepreneurs with their businesses while coaching several entrepreneurs he noticed that the majority of business owners were basically just “Making it up every day” so he looked for a solution to help them. In early 2014 He found it, it’s called EOS® or the Entrepreneurial Operating System® and became one of 50 Certified EOS Implementers nationally. He has been personally trained by EOS creator and best-selling author of Traction-Get a grip on your business Gino Wickman.  Chris uses EOS as the main “Framework” for all of his coaching engagements with entrepreneurial leadership teams across the nation.

Chris has successfully leveraged his time serving in uniform with all of his business experience to “Meld” both worlds together as “The Business Sergeant” and is currently working on his first book titled “The Business Sergeants’ Field Manual, Military Grade Business Execution, without all of the Yelling and Push-ups!”  He provides a fun, fast-paced learning environment that keeps his leadership teams highly engaged by teaching simple, practical tools that are proven to help you “Break through the ceiling”, and propel your company to new heights.
