David's passion is helping executives create a masterpiece personally and professionally. That's why he wrote, "The CEO Code," a Best Seller on AMAZON. That success resulted in Penguin/Alpha Books asking David to write "IDIOT'S GUIDES: Management Skills" released in December 2014.
David has "been there & done that" in the military, academia and business. His experience and expertise enable him to deliver for you:
IMPACT - When you survive bullets and missiles on 208 combat missions as a USAF fighter pilot it gives you an edge, a focus and a "can do" attitude.
RELEVANCE - Understanding people comes from knowledge, (MBA in Finance, grad work with Peter Drucker and years of university teaching.) Experience (Merrill Lynch, built three companies and coaching CEOs and executives.) Expertise (perpetual student, disciplined listener and professional speaking for over 30 years + lots of practice.)
RESULTS - 85% of David's new business comes from referrals. There is no higher tribute a client can give than to refer a friend or colleague. He is dedicated to getting you great results and believes that is the best marketing he could possibly do.
Before you start any journey you need to be certain of your "starting point" and then plan the best route to reach your destination. We will discuss basic behaviors and styles of leadership so you can figure out where you fit now. Then we will explore the necessary characteristics for becoming a great leader.
Leadership is fundamentally all about influence. There are many factors that impact how, when and why you are able to influence/lead others. One of the biggest crisis we have in the United States right now is the lack of effective leadership in business, government and the family. Our focus will be business however the principles are applicable to how you lead your family.
First we will discuss what sets a team apart from other forms of getting things done. Teams do certain things extremely well but they are not suited for all tasks. How to tell the difference and decide whether or not to use a team approach will be explored.
Coaching is one of the most effective ways to develop people. It creates an environment where people know how much you care and are willing to do to help them achieve greatness. It is not about the coach, it is all about the coaches. One of the real joys is both individuals will derive benefits from the experience.
