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 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 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.
The Organizational Development work done by Dave and his team is outstanding. The systematic approach with the personal recognition of the team’s needs, helped our team make tremendous strides in building trust between Management down to the the entry level associate. This resulted in more communication, working partnerships, and eventually greater productivity and job satisfaction.
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
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.
