Welcome to

Go from challenge and complexity to innovation and success with collaboration.

We are also at a time in human history where we are educated and connected, and have resources available like never before at our disposal.

Conflict, misunderstanding, misalignment of organizations and their leadership, lost productivity, wasted time and wasted resources resulting from limiting perspectives, distraction and hard-line positions are damaging our today and our future.

Videos By David

Stop wasting time, resources, people and reputation on poorly managed projects.

At every level of organizations, leaders are looking for innovative solutions to optimize skills, perspectives, teams and ways of working together to address.

Break Through To Yes; Book Release Show!
March 15, 2016

My journey in writing the stories, creating the 10 Essential Steps to Collaboration and including the real wisdom and over 100 people in my book has evolved over the past 3.5 years and far longer. March 22 our book, yes our book, will be released worldwide. To achieve the worldwide and acclaimed release of Break Through To Yes; Unlocking Possibility within a Culture of Collaboration is the culmination of collaboration with many around the world, including the music of Chuck Rose, the challenges from many, many people and obstacles. Today, I have asked two very key people in my writing, speaking, publishing and learning journey over the past year. We have Anna MacHargue (the person largely responsible for turning my hopes into great language). We, also, have David Milia (the person who collaborates with me to build the shared value and sustainability conversation). Grateful to Kirkus Reviews. Now let's collaborate and create a far better world in a culture of collaboration.
