David excels in asking the questions that clear a path for clients to find their own solutions. His singular vision and his knack for listening with empathy empower clients to embark on a voyage of self-discovery. He has worked with leaders across a spectrum of fields, among them industry, technology, finance, education, publication, science, consulting, health care and pharmaceuticals. These varied cultures have one thing in common: people have to work with each other. David’s message is clear and consistent. He believes that the only thing you can control is yourself. David prides himself on bringing fresh thinking to each coaching session. When a client answers the question “What do you want to get out of this conversation?” David tailors his approach to the client’s outcome.
Executives, leadership teams and individuals have benefited from David’s coaching for over 25 years. David is a former member of management at Motorola, Lockheed Martin Commercial Electronics and Harvard Community Health Plan, and has served on the adjunct Communication faculty at Northeastern University and was a lead instructor within John Hancock’s corporate training function. A true story: David once had two brief coaching conversations with a man at the end of his corporate career. The client wanted to get clear on his next steps. Ten years later, a FedEx box arrived outside David’s door. The sender was that long-ago client. Inside the box, David found a diploma granting him an Honorary Doctor of Laws in Psychology for “his critical impetus in the restoration of my Self Esteem.” That delivery reminded David why he is a coach— he just wants to help people find a way to get where they want to go.
