I think this program would be beneficial for anyone

I was fortunate to have an opportunity to explore an avenue for organizational leadership training and development that’s available right here locally in the ICT.  I completed the Leadership Excellence in Practice (LEIP) program at GrassFire Industries with David and can attest to its benefits. The life impacting concepts and perspectives that are seamlessly overlaid onto every situation offer the ability to do everything strategically. More than a set of rules to follow or methods to memorize Grassfire offers the complete integration of these ideas into all aspects of life. There’s nothing to memorize because you just behave differently, strategically.

The one-on-one tailored experience combined with the programs natural integration of leadership skill into all aspects of life make it easy to live and act more strategically as a leader. Concepts and tools I learned have stuck better and made a much more noticeable lasting change then other leadership courses I’ve taken. Dave teaches transformational leadership by helping people to transform themselves.  As Dave says - Life is leadership and leadership is life.

Ultimately the program helped me to learn some things about myself and the world around me. Dave provided some different perspectives and ideas when it comes to leadership. I think this program would be beneficial for anyone. Although it is tough to say what another person’s experience will be because it is a custom tailored experience.   I am confident that if someone is open and honest with the Dave and willing to grow that they will find the modules and the experience as beneficial and useful as I have.

I feel so much more confident now!

David, I wanted to send you some feedback about the Leadership Excellence in Practice Program I went through with you. You often hear people talk about how much they got out of a seminar or a workshop, but this program goes so far beyond that.  It is very in-depth and relevant, and it moves along effortlessly.  It seems like no more than having a conversation with a good friend, but somehow, you still recognize that you are learning and growing.  After only the first session, I began to see an improvement in my practices, my confidence level and my success.  This program is truly and positively life altering.  I finally addressed some difficult things about myself and past disappointments and failures that have continued to hold me back over the years.  I feel so much more confident now, and I can move forward to be the very best leader possible. I can't tell you how very grateful I am for your patience and insight through the program.  I will recommend this program to anyone who wants to be successful in business and in life, and honestly anyone who will listen to me rave about it!  Thank you again for everything.

Do yourself and your people a favor…

The value of learning the art of leadership from someone who understands it on the highest level cannot be overstated. Even if you already think you understand it, this training will benefit you. I was comfortable with my 5 years’ experience as a manager but taking GrassFire’s Leadership Excellence in Practice course, I quickly learned how under-developed my skills were. I gained new insights and tools in key areas such as delegation, having effective one on one's, casting vision, giving feedback, developing others, leading meetings, and more. What will help the most are the resources GrassFire provided to allow me to continually improve as a leader.

What I learned there and put into practice changed the trajectory of my ministry team. I saw positive outcomes in crucial conversations and better relationships formed because of it. I don't want to know how my team would look today had I not had this guidance. Do yourself and your people a favor by taking this course.

Disillusioned and Disconnected!!!!!

That's how I felt prior to arriving at GrassFire Industries and collaborating with David Robertson. I was grateful for the life I had prior to starting the Leadership Excellence in Practice program, yet I had allowed myself to lose focus of living with intention and being the leader of my own life. David's skilled ability to facilitate transformational leadership was evident in our first meeting. I appreciate the way in which he reveals opportunities to achieve success. His mindful approach through the leadership process, has helped me regain confidence and a sense of calm that had been missing for years. Thank You David for your exceptional teaching techniques, extensive knowledge and genuine, caring dedication to your students. I'm grateful to be a part of the GrassFire family.

Life Changing Results

Direction is the single word that came to mind looking back where I was when I met you. Actually it was the lack of direction and lack confidence that I struggled with. I had no clue what to expect when we first met, but I knew that the referral to meet with you was from a business acquaintance that had seen me through struggles of taking over a business that had hit rock bottom. I had hit a point of confusion and uncertainty. My first meeting can honestly be described as skepticism. I wasn’t sure how you were going to change my circumstances.

I had experienced other leadership styles, taken some leadership courses through college and read many articles that described what true leadership was and was not, I also experienced the difference between management and leadership and knew it played a crucial role in an organization. I had no clue that the discussions and education I received from you would open my mind personally to allow life changing results (which will be a work in progress). Of course the skepticism came from wondering if it was just a matter of timing, you aligning the stars for me or as you often referred to as “the simplest answer is usually the correct one”, that I began to build confidence, began to allow opportunities to be an opportunity and suddenly with in a very short amount of time my business went from lacking direction, having just me and a part time person, to having me, a full time person and an office administrator and more work than time allows for.

David, thank you so much for the patience you had for me and the wealth of knowledge you have to challenge me to learn and grow personally and professionally.
