“One of our company’s core values is ’employee development.’ For the past three years Dan has played a significant role in helping us achieve that goal while increasing the leadership capital within our entire company where the business operations include manufacturing, distribution, sales, marketing and administration.

Dan has displayed a profound ability to absorb the specific challenges of each of our department leaders and develop specific coaching strategies to assist in their growth. Along with his Executive Coaching, Dan has developed training strategies and delivered world class speeches at our national meetings.

As a Christian business man I have a deep desire not only to provide for our employees physical needs but also offer a means for them to develop as a whole person. With Dan’s background and business acumen he has been able to support both their personal and professional development. Everyone that Dan has worked with has expressed tremendous appreciation to our company for providing him to assist in their growth.

If you are interested in nurturing a culture of personal development and improvement I highly recommend Dan to lead that effort.”

“Over the years I have come to value your opinion on many things, but specifically your ability to effectively carry an organization through change and trying times without compromising your, and the group’s integrity, yet coming out a stronger entity.

This speaks to your leadership and ability to build the leadership skills in individuals to build an organizational culture that is strong fundamentally. Where individuals have a great grasp on not just its core mission, but more importantly, on what the organization’s values are so that personal and organizational growth and success are complimentary to each other.

In essence, a culture that can withstand the constant challenges evident in our ever changing business environment.

I know your company will be a success, as your uncanny ability to effectively merge faith and values in a business environment is a necessity for all organizations.”

Elisa V. Gaspart

President Strategic Consulting Group

“Anyone in a leadership role has a responsibility to understand that leading today has changed. Critical shifts in social behavior have created new opportunities for leading.

I have never known a great leader who did not know how to establish goals, develop plans, execute priorities and finally evaluate success in their career.  Every day they proactively plan ahead and solve problems to everyone can be successful. However, tragically for most people that is exactly what happens to them in their personal lives.  They say this part is ultimately the most important but they never take the time to write down what they want their legacy to be for the people that matter the most. Because the personal does not get the priority of the professional the […]

All of us have experienced the frustration that comes from really wanting to accomplish something important and thinking we are really committed to it only to realize several months later it did not happen.  When I evaluate personally and professionally where the breakdown occurs it usually centers on the disciplines involved in effective goal setting. These are the five critical things I have learned over the years: Write it down—if it is not important enough to write down in your personal planner or enter into your cell phone list then it will almost always never get done. Check your resources—do […]

It is absolutely impossible to effectively lead others if you first don’t have the ability to lead yourself.  Knowing yourself, both strengths and weaknesses, is a critical part of this process of being effective.  This post by Daniel Goldman is excellent and will help anyone who wants to improve: We prefer “EI,” which we define as comprising four domains: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management. Nested within each domain are twelve EI competencies, learned and learnable capabilities that allow outstanding performance at work or as a leader (see the image below). Read More …

Most of us are not very good listeners to begin with much less when conflict arises within the team.  We immediately start listening to respond instead of listening to understand.  If things get worse, then we will interrupt to try to transition the momentum back in our direction.  This HBR post provides very practical help: “Our review of research and company examples suggests there are three things you can do to avoid communication breakdowns like this.  Whether we’re walking into a meeting, drafting an important proposal, or sitting down face-to-face with a colleague, our attention can easily be hijacked, especially […]

One of the most successful executive coaches in the country is Marshall Goldsmith.  He wrote a great book that I would highly recommend What Got You Here Won’t Get You There. The simple thesis of the book  is your competency and skill set is what has got you to where you are now as far as promotions are concerned.  What it will take to get you where you need to be in the highly participative leadership culture of the future will be your people skills.  This area is where the overwhelming majority of executive men and women hit the wall.
