Engaging the Power of Authentic Courageous Leadership: How to Double Your Results with Less Effort

Well all know leadership is important, but only 18 percent of organizations feel their leaders are very effective at meeting business goals. When managers spend too much time reacting to emails, calls and to-do lists they lose touch with their own vision, making their jobs more difficult and leaving their goals unmet despite long hours on the job. How can they stimulate their personal strengths and unleash their passionate energy so they can get the results that organizations want?

In this inspiring talk, David shows his audiences how to discover their own brand of leadership so they can build more engaged teams and get better results with less effort.

The Art of Collaboration: The Central Ingredient to Building High Performing Teams

In today’s lean organization, teamwork is more important than ever. However in a recent leadership survey, less than half of business executives felt that managers in their organization were highly skilled in collaboration. What’s missing is the ability to ask the deep questions that bring out the expertise and skills of the people around them.

In this interactive and insightful talk, David shows his audiences how to have courageous and authentic conversations that create high-value relationships and build stronger teams.

In this engaging and interactive presentation, David shows his audiences how to develop executive presence through mindfulness, allowing them to regain their energy and become more relaxed, effective and creative in their work.
