Approach & Benefits
David believes that leadership, teamwork and managing complexity are best developed by encouraging leaders and teams to use their own lives and businesses as examples in order to enhance their process of self-discovery. He does not begin with theory but instead asks executives to go beyond their daily assumptions and habits in activities that disrupt their normal ways of thinking, their emotions and behavior.
The benefits of David’s unique Bamboo Strong™ and Ascend the Mountain Programs (based on the Hidden Demons Book and Method™) include:
• Helping leaders leverage cultural, generational, social and personal diversity in their organizations and workplaces, across borders and in new markets.
• Providing scientifically proven frameworks to encourage strong leadership resilience and agility
• Using Global DISC assessment and profiling to strengthen emotional and cultural intelligence
• Encouraging diversity, creativity and innovation, to elevate leaders’ self-awareness, self-confidence and sustained performance.
• Addressing self-doubt, stress and anxiety so that leaders can achieve a fulfilled life and abundant business based on their true selves
