Dan is the CEO and Founder of Dream Leadership Consulting. For years, Dan has coached companies working to transition from 7-figures to 8-figures in their business. This is a particularly tricky transition for anyone because it is the moment when a leader moves from business owner to CEO. Dan and his team at Elite have worked with hundreds of business owners and helped them grow bottom line revenue, and the quality of their culture. Having helped lead a company on the Inc 500 and on the Great Places to Work list, Dan understands how to strike the balance for stakeholders and employees.
Before founding Dream Leadership Consulting, Dan was the facilitator of the Dreaming Program at Infusionsoft (a small software company in Chandler, AZ), where he helped employees identify, articulate and accomplish their dreams. As a result of his work, he has developed the ability to help people discover their dreams and learn how to go after them. His realistic approach to dreaming recognizes that dreaming is not a "magic pill" but rather a new way of thinking about our ability to create.
This wide variety of experience has carried Dan to stages around the world. Whether it's a group of 12,000 or 12, Dan has a magical ability to build trust and create transformation.
