Mr. Hollis has creatively drawn on his expertise and background in philosophy and vocational psychology, along with his deep understanding of the value in using strengths-based techniques, to enrich and broaden career facilitation constructs into a more comprehensive service model. His own strength lies in his desire to provide meaningful and thoughtful practices that engage his clients in playing an active role in their own career exploration and planning. I will follow Blair's work closely, as I believe that it stands to have a profound impact on todays rapidly growing field of career facilitation.

One of our goals was to determine if our merging organizations would fit our personal styles. Blair Hollis led our team in an innovative workshop-discovery process that revealed our distinctive personalities. Identifying our relationship strengths and weaknesses allowed us to see ourselves in a new light, offering a new perspective. We developed a new respect for our roles and methods to anticipate potential conflicts. I would highly recommend any business to Crossroads Consulting to fine tune their team as a measure to heighten their talent and embrace their enterprise philosophy. They exceeded our expectations!

"Blair has been a crucial and beneficial compass guiding me through the discovery of my natural strengths and interests. His knowledge and understanding of career consulting has enabled me to explore new career opportunities and to do so with confidence. You couldn't ask for a more qualified and affable person to work with to discover what makes you tick."

Blair's insightful counseling was instrumental in helping me navigate a career change. He helped me open my eyes to possibilities I hadn't considered and encouraged me to keep using my gifts. He effectively guided me to an opportunity that has allowed me to continue with a career I love and have more bandwidth for my family.
-Mackenzie Howard, Publishing Editor
Blair was instrumental in helping me identify new career opportunities by thinking outside the box to help me discover talents within me that I didn't even know existed. The process started with some assessments tests and suggested careers paths which took a few weeks. After the assessments were complete Blair and I discussed the pros and cons of each newly identified opportunity and ranked them according to my PASSION. Blair also had a long successful career in private equity real estate so he understands how the business world works and transitions because he's done it himself.
-Frank Phillips, Investment Advisor
Blair Hollis is an intentional and insightful counselor who truly cares about helping his clients navigate transitional career seasons. My experience with him was most helpful. He used multiple assessments to determine my gifts and abilities and helped me to understand and apply them in meaningful/practical ways. He then counseled me through how to strategize my next steps. I highly recommend his services.
Blair did so much more than help me find work. He helped me rediscover and articulate my skills, passions, and purpose. With great compassion, he genuinely cared about all of my life roles—wife, mother, professional—and guided me towards opportunities that would benefit and enhance me holistically. Perpetually encouraging, he helped me regain my confidence and adjust my perspective while providing insightful, practical tools and advice that have opened doors and created possibilities of success both short and long term.

Blair Hollis was instrumental in helping me find my pathway. For a year, I struggled to find a direction that I truly felt I could but my heart behind. Through the process of testing and counseling, I’ve come to understand myself on a deeper level, which ultimately led me to make a choice in which I have full confidence.
-Ashley Earthman, Belmont University, Aspiring Nurse Practitioner
Blair helped me see how I can combine my story with the gifts and abilities the Lord has given me into a career that will bring me joy and glorify God. Seeing my assessment results helped me realize that fear was holding me back from what I am fully capable and created to do.
-Leslie Pardue, Nurse and aspiring Psyche Nurse Practitioner
Blair's rich background, vision for vocational guidance and expertise in identifying natural abilities in the context of a strength based model offers clients a unique and rich opportunity. His training in career development from the National Career Development Association, graduate education and training in counseling, and distinction as a Board Certified Christian Counselor, sets him far apart from the vast majority of private career counselors.

Blair has provided me with the tools and insight needed to better understand myself during times of necessary growth and change. The genuine care he provides as a counselor help me feel supported while making big decisions. He takes the time to make suggestions and connections, sends notes of encouragement, and follows-through with what he says he will do to help. I would (and do!) recommend him to anyone who could use an extra hand in trying to understand their natural gifts and abilities.
