I help Rebel Leaders transform their organizations to fit the New Economy using the 7 Levels of Human Engagement.
The 7 Levels
The last 40 years of social science research point to 7 key energies that every human needs for full engagement and happiness in their lives and work.
Engagement is a global problem, with over 70% of employees disengaged. That's billions of dollars of lost productivity, countless creative solutions missed, and months or years of being stuck without true liberating progress.
This is a leadership problem. Most leaders are never taught what it takes to truly engage themselves, let alone others. That's why I created the 7 Levels program. It combines modern science and ancient wisdom to empower bold, self-aware, authentic leaders with a human engagement framework to create transformation for themselves and everyone around them.
You know there's a better way. The 7 Levels is one path in that direction. My favorite path.
Also, it looks like I'm growing out of this box. Cool.
The Energy Level:
What this Looks Like at Work:
Tools to Measure and Implement:
Security / Safety. Trust is the foundation. If we don't have trust we can't access our best selves.
Emotional Intelligence. Personal Resilience Profile.
Play / Experimentation. Necessary for both innovation and dealing with constant change.
Personal Resilience Profile.
Team Synergy Profile.
Autonomy / Self-Efficacy. This is energy required to get things done right even in the face of challenge.
Team Synergy Profile.
Belonging / Appreciation. Completely underrated and a currency unto itself. This is what people really want.
Feedback and Difficult Conversations.
Speaking Truth / Using Strengths. Many of us are blocked at this level.
Feedback and Difficult Conversations.
Insight / Growth / Progress. Small wins and insights lead to massive engagement and progress.
SQ - Spiritual Intelligence.
Meaning / Purpose / Bigger Connection. If you don't have this in your work you will never truly love it.
SQ - Spiritual Intelligence.
Are you ready to engage yourself and others like never before? Yeah? Me too.

I give David a 10
Working with David is great. It's easy, he's 100% authentic in his delivery, he has great energy, and I trust him completely. He's approachable and he's fun. We were able to explore EQ together with the whole department! It not only helped open the door to the EQ world to everyone, but it was practical and helped us be a stronger team that can help each other emotionally as well. I give David a 10.
David is a rare speaker
I saw David keep an audience of entrepreneurs engaged so much they didn’t want to let him go. He did a long Q&A session with relaxed confidence and profound understanding of the subject. David is one of those rare speakers who not only structures a talk beautifully but adapts to his audience along the way. He breaks down complicated topics into simple concepts with a very natural sense of humor. He's a truly enjoyable and caring speaker!
David surprised me
I saw David speak about spirituality in business - a topic I usually avoid since the content tends to be unempirical and rarely pushes me to think in new ways (that I trust). David surprised me. He's able to talk about issues that are generally on the far side of the "soft" side of business--love, meaning, spirituality, emotion--using current science as well as practical exercises that powerfully convey why these "soft" domains are centrally important to doing good business.
Working with David was Life-changing
David, it was thanks to your teachings that I discovered my passion. After thousands of euros spent on personal development materials, seminars and books, I was able to uncover my passions and purposes in just one session with you.

David saved my life. And here is how...These last few weeks have been some of the most emotionally turbulent and downright STRANGE I think I've ever experienced. All kinds of fears have been coming to the surface, and unloved parts of me making themselves heard, and deep emotions of sadness, loss, confusion and anger coming out. And I it would have been 100x times harder if it wasn't for the loving kindness, genius, and generosity of this dude! He's taught me that our emotions are good, what to do with them, and that on the other side of our emotions is Peace. They are data from the universe showing us the way forward.

In a very intensive one-day workshop, we got clarity on who we are and where we want to go.
David has a unique way with words
David has a unique ability to invoke emotions in people, always knowing the right questions to ask. He has a unique way with words. I walk away from meeting him with at least one phrase that I constantly refer to in my thoughts that sustains my progress. His ability to listen and understand, then suggest techniques based on that knowledge is above-and-beyond anything I've experienced with other facilitators. I'm very thankful to have worked with David.
