I am a Modern-Day Alchemist. I help you transform your personal and professional life from METAL to GOLD. I work with you through a seemingly magical process that results in your transformation.
We accomplish this through co-creation of experiments and actions, and by combining our professional and personal experiences.
I am the Advocate for your success; Ally in its pursuit.
I have 30 years of experience in coach-approach leadership through personnel management, project & portfolio management, and process alignment across multiple types of organizations. My career spans consulting and direct employment with start-ups, small businesses, government, and Fortune 20 companies.
Throughout these experiences, I've focused on helping individuals leverage their unique skills through significant improvements in their personal understanding and productivity. I've helped organizations of all sizes improve their bottom line while strengthening their relationships with personnel and customers via culture design, process improvement, and strategy alignment.
I support individuals and organizations in attaining alignment between their purpose and their actions through education and coaching. I help individuals in roles as diverse as Solopreneur to Chief Executive achieve more and multiply their impact in work, charity, and life.
In addition to founding Multiply Your Impact, LLC, I currently teach other coaches and coach-approach leaders at the CoachVille Center for Coaching Mastery.
A lifelong learner, I hold professional certifications including HBDI Practitioner from Herrmann International, PMI-PMP from the Project Management Institute, CVPCC from the Center for Coaching Mastery at CoachVille, PCC from the International Coaching Federation, and Higher Ground Leadership® Pathfinder from The Secretan Center.
I focused my Masters of Business Administration (MBA) thesis on Learning Organizations despite the formal classwork focus of Technology Management, and have been applying my diverse knowledge and experience to organizations and individuals ever since.
I've always been a helper. The stories about my youth echo this theme repeatedly. And this theme has been consistent throughout my career. Today I recognize my purpose is to help others recognize and share the best of themselves, as I pursue that same goal for myself.
During my Higher Ground Leadership® training in 2019 I created my Destiny, Character, and Calling statements - my Why-Be-Do® for short:
My Destiny (Why I am here)
To help craft a more inclusive society.
My Character (How I will Be)
To be an authentic and loving person.
My Calling (What I will Do)
To model inclusivity through coaching, teaching, and writing.
I love a good puzzle, and putting disparate ideas together is a challenge in which I frequently find myself happily engaged. As my career has evolved, I find the skills I've honed in looking at things differently, creating unique results from unrelated but common inputs, and experimenting to find unexpected paths to goal realization has been a fantastic byproduct of my natural curiosity and drive to find better ways.
It is a great joy of my life that I am continuing to do these things and more, in service of others through coaching. Along the way I gain more knowledge and experience, and that growth propels me forward.
Always challenging people to bring a spirit of play into their environments, I play while supporting multiple charities with my bicycle — including century bicycle rides (100 miles) and antics like executing 10 daily workouts on a bicycle trainer sequentially in one day (earning my KoS!).
If the Columbus Crew or FC Barcelona soccer teams are playing, I'm loudly cheering them as near to the field as I can get.
I met David Sherrod through a Gold Star Referral Group on several occasions. David impressed me with his different approach to coaching and we decided to move forward right at the beginning of the Covid 19 Pandemic. This proved to be just the right medicine for my team at the time. David coached my team for six months; it kept us on track and focused us on our goals when many in our industry were off 35% of their goals or previous year's business. We are close to achieving an aggressive growth goal for 2020 established in the fourth quarter of 2019. My office manager and myself are continuing to coach with David currently.
If you never tried coaching or are looking for something different this program is for you!
Let’s start at the top, David is an excellent Executive Coach. He is excellent at building a personal relationship with you. Through the building of the relationship, he will listen to you intently and make you aware of the influences of your environments. Unlike other typical coaches, he doesn’t provide boilerplate but works with you to determine “how” these influences impact you. Additionally, he helps you see all sides of your environment and how they impact you. Lastly, he always has a positive aspect to him and his message. That’s important to me. I am excited to see how David will coach me to the next level.
David has been a significant presence and positive force in my life over the months since he agreed to be my coach. His insights, perspective and support has been invaluable to me during a career transformation. Amazing to me was how quickly he connected with me. In the process of doing so, he created a safe, comfortable and productive environment; built on trust, respect and absence of any personal judgement. I look forward to discovering the possibilities for the future. Thank You Coach Dave!
David took the time to educate himself about my business and me as a person. Resulting in a 100% customized, Concise, Practical, Business Specific Coaching Plan. This helped me navigate to the next level in business & life. Providing me with actionable weekly assignments. Offering a valuable 2nd set of eyes to help me break through some long-standing plateaus. Realigning my goal strategies. Executing short term goals and still making progress on long term goals in an expedited manner.
Bottom Line, this is Top Notch Coaching at an Executive level.
