More About Dan

Dan is an experienced coach, facilitator and consultant. He specializes in leader and team development, focusing on the impact of emotional intelligence and critical thinking – the idea that all emotion is useful data providing a competitive edge once properly interpreted. Along with E.I., thinking strategically and systemically form the core of a leader’s long term capabilities, which means thinking critically, analyzing and challenging assumptions.

Dan’s executive coaching sweet spots are helping leaders with large and smaller scale change management, influence strategies and communication (whether in meetings or face to face with individuals). New to role assignments and building high performing teams are also particular areas of coaching skill.
