If there is one word I would associate with Goose Educational Media, 'persistence' would be it. Chris has been working on this project for the last 2-3 years (probably more) and I know he has encountered the dreaded Dip, yet he has fought through to create a truly valuable product. Another word I would associate with GEM is 'excellence'. Chris is one of those rare people who is constantly striving for excellence and fully committed to self-development, and he has created this website to help and INSPIRE others to do the same. Moreover, Chris is a an exceptional writer, and his book reviews are well worth a read. Given that membership to the site is free, GEM offers an incredible deal. Go check it out; you will not be disappointed!
To this day, I can say that Chris has been the best manager I have ever worked with. Those of you that have done sales know the difficulty of staying positive amidst leads that turn cold, no-shows, and disappointing closing ratios. Yet Chris was able to successfully motivate and coach his sales team to, in his own words, "Sling blades, baby, sling blades." And sling blades we did. Chris is an excellent manager because he communicates effectively, is open to feedback, and has an intuitive sense of adapting his managing style to the person and/or situation at hand. I would jump at the opportunity to work with him again, and am more than happy to recommend him to future bosses and colleagues.

Chris is doing some fantastic work at Goose Educational Media. The weekly book reviews are enjoyable and well written. Even if I don't buy and read that book, his reviews always give me something I can use to better myself. I would recommend that everyone becomes a part of the Goose community.
Chris is more than just the "Problem Solver" his business card says he is; he always thinks outside the box to come up with solutions that are exciting and make his clients shine. He always expects the best quality in all his projects. He is a great guy to work with!
It’s a true pleasure to work with Chris and his team. The analysis they provided was very valuable and the platform was not only innovative, but very user friendly. Highly recommendable program.
I met Chris in 2011 when we were looking for a partner to replace an existing provider in one of our anchor programs. From the start, I loved the Actionable Books concept but what sealed the deal for me was how easy Chris was to work with. He worked hard to understand our goals and unique parameters and has been a collaborative partner with The Executive Roundtable ever since. Our members LOVE the results they get from the Actionable Workshop series and we love the fact that we're able to offer such a relevant and practical product to our community.
The Actionable Books program is brilliant! As a busy District Manager and a leader leading a sales team, having the program at our fingertips allows us to teach various personal and professional growth topics to our sales staff without extra hours of preparation. The workshop tutorial videos that Chris has incorporated makes it even that easier for teachers to teach! Thanks Chris helping leaders lead!
I had such a wonderful time working with Chris at Vector Marketing, that I decided to do it again! Working with him at Actionable Books proved to be a very valuable learning and growing experience. He's an exceptional manager who truly wants the best for his people, will support them in whatever way he can, and expresses appreciation every step of the way. He provides great feedback and offers guidance when asked.
Actionable Workshops are a fabulous addition to every team leader. They are valuable, interactive and easy to facilitate. I highly recommend them!
Chris Taylor is an exceptional individual to work with - smart, quick and passionate ! Having went through a few training sessions with Goose Educational Media on personal development and working with Chris in multiple facets at Silver Lining Ltd, I have no doubt that he will continue to be successful.
