Executive coaching is needed today more than ever as a critical tool for change. The modern leader must adapt to today's rapidly shifting, complex, and uncertain marketplace. This environment has executives thirsting for the time and space to think more strategically. Leaders are also being asked to do more with less while facing these conditions. As the pressure to deliver results mounts, feelings of overwhelm and burnout can take hold, impacting a leaders ability to inspire followers. In the past, executives could overcome these challenges with experience and technical competency alone. Success today, however, requires enhanced self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness, and relationship management ability. The reality is that without a deliberate plan to practice these core competences of Emotional Intelligence (E.I.), most of us won’t develop at the pace our environment demands, thereby limiting our potential.

David knows what it takes it to coach the modern executive to their full potential. His time spent leading soldiers in combat, and later teams in corporate America, informs his leadership philosophy. That means putting strong character and high credibility first, with an emphasis on expectations and accountability. Most importantly, it’s about building emotionally intelligent leaders who serve others before self.

Yet, David’s past leadership experience is not what most enables him to be an effective coach. It’s his decade invested in deep personal reflection and continuous learning. He’s spent thousands of hours exploring the best ways to teach and learn leadership. David has also been personally coached for many years and has experienced the difficult work of behavior change firsthand. Through his unique life journey, he’s developed a powerful intuition for what will best serve his clients and the distinctions to help them unlock untapped leadership ability.

David’s coaching style is one of “brutal compassion.” He pushes clients beyond their comfort zone, within a supporting and trusting environment. This enables them to take the risks needed to grow.

David has worked with thousands of leaders to include those in Fortune 500 companies such as Google, Schlumberger, Accenture, Harris Corporation, Arthur J. Gallagher, Johns Manville, and Facebook.
