Testimonials

As the leader of an executive team, working with my coach to compare and contrast my strengths with the strengths of each member of the team has helped to manage team interactions and assignments more effectively.  I can guide discussions more effectively, and I can ensure the right people with the right strengths are assigned to the right tasks. -Mitch Rutledge, Kaiser Permanente Vision Essentials


 

The greatest learning and beneficial insight I discovered through the DCC Coaching Program is the power of thoughtfully exploring situations deeply, not as they always present for a better outcome. I’ve experienced an increased attention to presence, mindfulness and self-care. I’m leading from the heart and head. I believe other employees and/or leaders would benefit in the ways I have through the coaching by learning techniques for responding vs. reacting during stressful work situations and personal, authentic accountability-Carol Aaron, Senior VP of Culture and People, PeaceHealth

The coaching program has exceeded all my expectations! It has made a tremendous difference every day that I'm at work. I have learned new skills to better communicate with my patients and my co-workers and have really experienced more joy and peace during the work day. This has also extended into a much more peaceful and less chaotic family life too. All the stress that I used to experience and then carry back home with me, now I know how to better manage those situations and not let them affect the rest of my day. -Serena, Kaiser Permanente Vision Essentials coaching program participant


 

As a trainer, project manager, and coach, David has mastered the difficult and delicate balance required to keep tight deadlines, produce challenging, and creative work while, at the same time, act as a highly motivating influence on his teams and colleagues. I wholeheartedly recommend him for his coaching skills. -Mary Jo Calderon, Ernst & Young (France)


 

I now know how to look for individual strengths within each of my team members and not assume that all people are the same or should be the same.  I recognize that everyone has differing awareness levels and skill sets and I know how to meet them where they are and help bring out the best in what they have to offer our team and our company.  I do this by seeing the big picture, yet I know how to break down the path to organizational change into baby steps now.  -Stephanie, Kaiser Permanente Vision Essentials coaching program participant


 

Among David's vast skills is the ability to listen, and then ask the appropriate questions to help an individual find the correct answer. He is knowledge about people, workplaces, and all kinds of situations that workers face today. He is able to help people fully realize their potential.   I value his expertise highly and would recommend him as a great resource to any organization. -Dee McKinsey, the Red Cross
