Never Lead alone

Coaching leaders towards clarity, courage & Community


Leadership is lonely

As leaders are elevated in their organization, a common mantra is: “Who can I turn to?” Being a leader can be a lonely place because of the social, emotional, and professional expectations that come with the role.

I support leaders by providing a safe and confidential space for open and honest dialogue. I seek to ask thoughtful questions, actively listen, and meet you where you are.


Leadership is complex

With an increasingly dynamic and demanding workplace, there isn’t a “silver-bullet” solution to anything. Business strategies, board demands, and direct reports can be exponentially challenging.

I support leaders to gain clarity by customizing a pathway towards collecting human-centered data. This approach includes surveys, interviews, and discovery.


Leadership is paralyzing

When there isn’t one right answer, “getting-it-right” can be paralyzing. Sometimes, leadership requires the courage to put one foot in front of the other.

I support leaders by creating a simple roadmap to solve some of their biggest challenges. We work together to accomplish impactful and simple steps.

I coach leaders to gain clarity, take courageous action, and cultivate meaningful community.


Previous keynotes



Danny hosted a StrengthsFinder workshop for our team at The Giving Keys, and we all walked away stronger for it. He allowed us to uncover the diversity of strengths, backgrounds and life experiences at our company, but also helped us to create a common language and frame for relating to each other and celebrating our differences. Since that time, we’ve used our StrengthsFinder in our onboarding, performance management, and goal setting. I would highly recommend Danny to any team or individual who is looking to unlock the power of StrengthFinders in their company culture.

I sought out Danny as I was developing my business and creating an effective and efficient team who operates in their giftings. I knew that I did not have the insight or ability to do it on my own and am thankful that I sought him out. He has delivered valuable insight and actionable goals which have led to great progress within the organization.
