The planned, systemic change in your employees’ ways of thinking and patterns of behavior for individual and company growth.
Executives with the self-awareness, interpersonal skills, applied experience, and internal resourcefulness to manage their work relationships is of prime importance to their career progression as well as their ability to contribute to your company’s success.
I had the opportunity to work with Dave at Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical (J&J) on the “Skip Level” initiative – an innovative organization effectiveness process he initiated and led in partnership with our CFO to achieve and sustain employee engagement and high performance in Finance. He effectively used his wealth of experience in coaching to guide all levels of employees through the variety of business challenges they faced to professional success. Dave is a terrific coach and mentor, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for professional support in taking their leadership capabilities, their career and their business results to the next level.
I have known Dave for the past 24 years both professionally and personally. Dave has provided me career coaching for many years and has always provided an outlook and advice that I have greatly benefited from. Specifically, Dave’s experience is in the areas of Change Leadership, Leadership and Team Development, Employee Engagement and Process Improvement. I have personally experienced his expertise in these areas and have gained a higher level of understanding and skills under his direction. I have also found Dave to be unique in his approach as, for example, in process improvement, he directly involves people representing all areas of a process in the effort, thereby improving relationships and breaking down silos while at the same time streamlining the process itself. Dave truly understands human dynamics in the workplace and offers his clients a significant return on the investment they make for his services.
I’ve appreciated knowing and working with Dave Fleck and other members of his team in developing several projects. Dave is a certified coach through our organization, The Leading Clinic, and thus joins me in bringing a whole system, sustainable change approach to his client work. He also leans in the direction of the positive, taking an appreciative stance for the well-being, strengths and capacity to learn and grow of his clients and colleagues.
Thanks to Dave’s long-term relationship with our organization, he quickly understood the business implications of what he was told during the action groups, and made correct conclusions and valuable recommendations to improve collaboration between various groups of people in our organization. I was fascinated by Dave’s ability to gain trust from many different people within our organization.
I had the pleasure of working for Dave when he was rolling out upward feedback sessions for AT&T’s senior leaders. I found Dave to be an extremely insightful, authentic coach and manager. Additionally, he has excellent planning skills and is very focused on business outcomes, which is sometimes rare for OD professionals.
