Dave provides me with a safe and nurturing space for metacognition. He asks catalytic questions that help me frame issues on a different level, understand my colleagues better, and most importantly understand my own story better. This supported self reflection has helped me confront error in myself and learn to suspend what I think I know about myself, how I should think, and how I should problem solve. I am extremely appreciative of the opportunity Dave has given me to approach my work with a new and curious mindset, it is helping me leverage my unique strengths and contributions and engage in my work in a more meaningful way.

David is a highly strategic thinker, has excellent judgment and integrity to match it. We described him as "The President of the Internet" in our book 'The Starfish and The Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations" based on his interaction with French investors in the days when he took NetCom public. I can also attest that David is also an excellent advisor and coach to fellow CEO's.
