What others have said about Joel Christiansen and Christiansen Academy:
Joel has an excellent background in drug education, is a very entertaining and effective speaker, and I recommend him without reservation.
Joel has helped Concordia University develop the Organizational Development Clinic from its grassroots. His desire for helping students and entrepreneurs succeed is grounded both from a soulful and genuine belief in people but also due to his desire to empower those around him to believe that they can achieve worthwhile passions. He is an individual who knows how to critically think, actively listen, and productively nudge those who he is mentoring and consulting in a way that allows them to see their own potential. This is what makes him a great educator, guide, and inspiration to those he works with.
Having spent over 96 MBA in Organizational Development hours learning at Joel’s direction I can testify to his passion for excellence and his contagious ability to energize and encourage others. His courses were the highlight of my graduate experience. The real world applications are immediately apparent.

Joel spoke at our monthly business lunch in Norfolk NE in January 2016. He did an outstanding job! That may sound like fluff, but here’s the deal. Joel spoke from the heart, and his passion for leadership and specifically ethics really came through. Joel’s speech covered relevant business and workplace topics like presence, purpose, passion, ethical conduct, and even happiness. After all, isn’t a happy employee, co-worker, or a friend a better one? I would highly endorse Joel for any speaking conference or other event of a similar nature!
To say Joel Christiansen is an expert at business model generation and strategic planning would be an understatement. Joel is an expert communicator, mentor, and coach that goes above and beyond for his clients. Joel took care to learn about our individual desires, needs, and beliefs and has woven them throughout the business model and strategic plan that he and his team created for us. Each step of the way he took into account who we are and designed an easy to follow step-by-step strategic plan that truly “fits us.” Thanks to Joel and his team, Sassy and Classy is thriving. On a personal note, I will never be able to thank Joel and his team enough for helping me build, not only my business, but my self confidence that really… I CAN do this!
