Proven Experience Guiding CEOs and
Owners to Success and Growth

I coach business owners and executives through the critical decisions that benefit employees, families, organizations, and communities.

After building client solutions for over 30 years, I am focused on making lasting changes with those with the will and authority to do so, using leadership as the fulcrum needed to gain personal, professional and organizational results.

Are you looking for proven results, frustrated with your lack of progress, and willing to commit to a more sustainable path of executive development?

While leadership was not always a popular investment in times of economic recession, Dan had the courage of conviction to believe leadership is a lever to achieve great success. In addition to his strong beliefs, he has a record of making mistakes and achieving incredible gains. Fortunately, yesterday’s mistakes turn into insights for today’s clients.

In addition to his work as an executive coach and roundtable facilitator, he believes in investing back in young professionals and his community. Dan has mentored others, participated in his children’s activities, and served on area non-profit advisory boards for many years, including the Association for Talent Development (ATD), Greater Madison Society for Human Resource Managements (GMA SHRM), Madison Area Quality Improvement Network (MAQIN), Salvation Army of Dane County, and the Middleton Endowment, an affiliate fund of the Madison Community Foundation.

He and his wife Lisa have been neighbors and friends to others in Middleton, Wisconsin for more than 30 years, and travel regularly to the mountains of Colorado and great lakes of Wisconsin. Their favorite journeys allow them time to visit family, hike, ski, bike and visit new destinations. Their sons Patrick and Ben live and work in Denver, Colorado, and daughter Kate lives and works in Milwaukee.
