When high-performing and high-potential executives achieve success professionally, their personal challenges often increase. The drive to excel, the compulsion to succeed, the commitment to performance, and the desire to advance can create an imbalance that undermines their progress.
Through coaching, executive clients — such as yourself — develop and hone their leadership, shifting from leadership competency to leadership mastery. You will improve your communication, accountability and management skills, propelling forward toward the performance, advancement, success and excellence, you seek.
If you’re like most successful executives, you feel a sense of isolation as you deal with unexpected challenges with each new level of success. To avoid appearing vulnerable, you may ignore the issues and your role in the problem instead of developing the skills to handle it.
David helps you tackle the challenges that are holding you back, providing a safe space for self-examination.
David instilled a sense of security and confidence in our initial discussion that opened the door to honest discussion and deep soul-searching. He then provided a solid foundation and methodology from which we were able to build on our discussions and a lens through which I was able to more deeply understand my motivations and drivers, and the how those impacted others and my decision making.”
“How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping THAT picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to BE and to DO what really matters most.”
~ Stephen Covey
Achieving More Requires Becoming More
The DTK Coaching Approach
At the heart of my coaching is a simple philosophy:
It doesn’t have to be hard. It just has to be conscious.
I provide a clear, constructive framework for you to achieve lasting, transformational changes in your business and your life.
My unique ability to listen to interconnected and complex issues, and then provide clarity and support, allows me to quickly understand what makes entrepreneurs tick. I bring an arsenal of techniques and tools rather than taking a formulaic one-size-fits-all approach. As a client said, “He knew what made me tick, sometimes before I did.”
As my client, you’ll learn to overcome the overwhelming challenges that building a business brings and the impact it’s having on your family life. You’ll learn how to create a Life-Work Balance you only dared to imagine was possible, while also achieving dramatic shifts in your performance. Best of all, you’ll learn how to make these steps a part of your life forever.
The process is called the Touchstone Method: focus | clarity | action
- Putting deep focus on right now: your current state, what works and what doesn’t, what drives you and what’s deeply important to you.
- Develop clarity around what you want: your desired future state, where you want to go, what you want to do, what you want to create.
- Create action steps that are strategic and concrete. Big picture and tactical. Innovative and proven.
- As your coach, my job is to be your accountability partner — a touchstone — keeping you on track with your action plan as you move toward your desired future state.
This will be some of the hardest work you’ve ever done … and then? You’ll keep doing it every day, because the results — a successful career, thriving family and wildly fulfilling life — are what really matter most and you’re ready to relentlessly pursue it.

I have been working with David for the past four years...He has the ability to tap into what’s really going on beneath the surface, and creatively helps you work through the issue...He helped me paint a vision for what I wanted and once that was in place, he always holds that vision and challenges me to rise up to meet it.
