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 worked and collaborated with Dave over the last 15 years. His expertise in moving corporations to higher performance and results has had major business impacts within various pharma and manufacturing organizations. His approaches to developing ‘espirit-de-corps’, employee engagement, and organizational commitment are grounded in research and experience, yet creative and flexible to meet the needs of unique client environments
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 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.
I have collaborated with Dave for many years now providing a variety of Organization Development interventions from consultative services, strategic plannning, organizational assessments, to coaching, training and delivery of customized interventions for numerous organizations in multiple industries (telecom, manufacturing and pharmaceutical).
