    The reality is that high-performing results-focused teams don’t just happen magically. They are developed intentionally by forward-looking leaders who realize that great results are borne from the collective best efforts of people working well together. In such teams, trust is real, conflict is productive, and commitment and accountability are givens.

    • Provide application through reflection, planning and exercises

    Content – participants will:

    • Understand two cutting-edge models for sustainable team effectiveness
    • Learn practical tools for assessing and enhancing team effectiveness
    • Complete an assessment on one’s own team to identify actionable steps to take

    BIO of Presenter: Dave’s passion is working with busy, results-oriented executives and business owners who want to capitalize on a key strategic advantage – their leaders.  Through his practical, proven and collaborative approach, he helps organizations sharpen the leadership skills of managers so profits are deepened, morale is enhanced, and the type of culture is created that attracts and retains top talent. His clients have been from a variety of industries, including software, biotech, retail, financial services, government and healthcare.

    The focus of Dave’s work is on 1:1 leadership coaching, team effectiveness, organizational leadership development, training and the application of tools such as DiSC® (personality), The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ (team effectiveness) and EQ-i 2.0 (emotional intelligence) to deepen self-awareness and create actionable insights.

    Before joining Think2Perform, Dave ran his own coaching, training and consulting business for six years. Prior to entering consulting, Dave worked over the span of 24 years for American Express Financial Advisors/Ameriprise developing leaders and teams across the United States. Hundreds of leaders and thousands of training participants have put Dave’s practical expertise into action.

    Locally in Bozeman, MT Dave has taught the Leadership Foundations course at Montana State University, writes a quarterly “Business Matters” column for the Bozeman Daily Chronicle’s Business Journal, and has served on the boards of Eagle Mount and Young Life, including President and Chair respectively. 

    Dave has a B.A. in Psychology and Communications from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN and a M.Ed. in Human Resource Development from the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, MN.  After braving the humidity, mosquitoes and flatness of Minnesota for 17 years, in 2000 he moved back to God’s country in Montana with his wife, and two kids.  He enjoys hitting a little white ball around in the summers and remaining vertical while gliding down white powder in the winters.
