Excerpt from EpisodeI found David to be fully present as a gentle, passionate and open hearted man whose sole/soul purpose in my view, is to point those interested into their capacity for leading consciously. He has developed much wisdom and translated it into a sought after program that teaches authenticity as a verb, not a noun – a journey into becoming what we were born to be, learning humility, compassion and accountability along the way. As leaders it is our responsibility to first get personal clarity and then make certain that those we lead clearly understand the following: why does the company exist, where is it going and how is it going to get there. His experience tells him that many companies create a culture by defeat instead of by design, which is achievable through the guidance of clear, value-based authentic leadership.
