"We started working with David in 2013 and around 2,750 State of Michigan leaders have since gone through his program. We have conducted six employee surveys since 2012 and have seen a significant favorable increase in responses to the survey's leadership questions demonstrating that the program did have impact. David has truly changed the way individuals lead others at the State of Michigan."

James Willems
Employee Engagement Manager, State of Michigan

I would say that this is the best practical leadership course you could invest in. David and his program helped me see that I was talented enough, I knew enough, and that I was seen as a senior leader. I know that I have the ability to get done what needs to be accomplished. I have asked for raises confidently and received them. I have used this material to coach many of my mentees, friends and direct reports. For me, Fit Leaders Academy was a game changer.

T. Falcon Napier
Founder, Institute for Productive Tension®

"David's program helped me to "slow down" as I sought to better understand the various
members of my team. This strengthened the team as trust was deepened, and it changed how
I manage my teams and how I interact with others in my company."

Todd Breault
Sales Manager, Sciaky, Inc.
