“When I was going to the conferences, I would listen to other company owners talk about how they made their journey and almost all would say their coach helped them. I finally I realized I couldn’t do it myself. David is a great coach. He doesn’t mince words which was really good and at times painful. My deepest appreciation for David as our coach comes from his ability to walk us through this process and help us determine our core purpose and values scientifically. I have 100% faith that right now, our core purpose and values, at this time in our journey are perfect for us.”– Dave Rauch
“I had been reaching out in several different areas, self-help books, taking a group of people that I felt were leadership bound to different conferences. A lot of it experience in teaching myself and very little in teaching my group. I finally realized that I needed some true help with. In having the information in the book (Scaling Up) and having it broken down to the smaller bits and bytes for the staff I think was really instrumental in us being able to solve some humongous problems. David supports the team in a way with the straight talk and his ability to cut through all the excuses and making people realize that if they don’t want to bring it to the table they don’t need to be at the table. He was able to put a pencil point and just explain we are here and we are needing to go there in a manner that was just completely influential in my decision and I am so pleased that I was able to open up our views to be able to bring that in. Because we are definitely seeing it.”– Debi Davis
