"Dave is a thoughtful, reflective coach who caters his approach to the individual. I found it useful to start the process with the Birkman assessment, as it is a great awareness vehicle. Dave drew out my objectives from the outset and consistently linked our conversations to those objectives. As an entrepreneur and business owner, accountability is important to me. Dave is not afraid to hold my feet to the fire to help ensure I follow through on commitments. He is also very skilled at holding up the mirror to cause heightened self-awareness. For a leader who is seeking more balance, focus and fulfillment, Dave is a dynamite catalyst!"

"I receive great benefits from meeting regularly with Dave Loney. As an executive coach he brings his background, experience, training along with great listening/reflecting skills to the table. Dave gets me to the heart of the issue and helps me reflect well on current decisions and future plans. He uses strategic thinking and a broad set of tactical tools that help me formulate clear action steps toward reaching my personal goals, which in turn assist my organization in reaching its goals.

"I also appreciate Dave's deeply personal style. Becoming a more effective executive is paramount, but not out of context of life, relationships and faith. Our times together not only help me get at the organizational objectives, I come away encouraged in my spirit and feeling cared for in a genuine way.

"I strongly recommend Dave as a skilled and effective executive coach with a personal style that is engaging and relational while focusing on results oriented learning."

A word about my tagline and logo...

"It's your lead" is a mountaineering term that signals someone that it is their turn to forge ahead.

My logo represents a mountaineering tool used by the leader to secure a chosen route.

These concepts align with my coaching style: I accompany my clients on their leadership journeys and facilitate as they choose their own best routes to personal and professional success.
