    About our Guest

    Our speaker, David Watson, delivers leadership services to help individuals, teams and/or organizations reach their fullest (business) potential and ultimate (personal) passion - basically what I've been doing informally all of my life. Now he focuses full time on helping shift mindsets, behaviors and cultural beliefs at the critical inflection points of an individual's career journey and/or a company's organizational journey/transformation. All of this against the backdrop of VUCA - volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity - for rapidly changing market conditions.

    He is a published author of the book, "Lessons Learned for my Sons". You can read one, some or all of the 110 lessons and apply them to your own growth and development - or in the service of others as well. Enjoy.

    David's prior life was all about enterprise software and technology/management consulting.



    Capability Model - Training Delivery & Facilitation, Collaboration & Leadership, Cultural Awareness & Inclusion, Lifelong Learning, Business Insight, Talent Strategy & Management, Future Readiness.
