Dave is a thoughtful, knowledgeable and brave coach, with a good sense of humour… He helped me to clarify my unique strengths and to let go of some long held mythologies that have been standing in the way of career fulfillment and success.
Dave listens hard, asks great and probing questions, dives deep, contemplates with you, allows you to grow by guiding you to the pertinent places, and at the end of the day you’re leading better and enjoying life more fully.
Dave is able to slice through your own professional / emotional fog and deliver a gentle, well-executed smackdown at precisely the right moment. He will challenge your assumptions about what’s possible for your life and work, and swiftly invite you into your next phase of growth.
Dave was able to help me see and understand patterns of behaviors, without judgement. His experience as a faculty member meant that he quickly understood many of the situations that are unique to academic institutions. Although I was apprehensive about coaching and self-reflection, Dave made the process professional, comfortable, and effective.
Dave delivers the right balance of pressure and support. Pressure in honesty and astute questions. Support in encouragement and affirmation. Underpinning his work is a deep commitment to empathize with and understand our context and challenges. He couples this with an ability to adapt to work with exactly where we are at and provide the resources likely to be most useful.
Dave worked with me as coach when I transitioned to a new academic institution and faced my imminent tenure review. I had the answers within me but could not easily see them in the fog of stress. Dave’s attentive listening and mirroring helped me clear up some rubble to move ahead more swiftly towards my goals. I also found pleasure in many intellectual exchanges with Dave, making connections together in conversations spanning the oddities of academia, language and leadership, and education.
