Brenda De La Cruz’s Story
I met David when I was a manager at Workday. He was just incredible.
His patience and his sincerity in taking the time to get to know me on a personal level was amazing!!
I was able to be open and honest
You can tell he loves his job
He wants people to develop
I can’t think of another personal I trust more to help me make decisions in my career
I’ve been working with David for a couple years now and have experienced career and personal growth because of our relationship. My background: I am a director at a technology company in the Bay Area. A previous company graciously funded executive coaching and I decided to continue the coaching after I left that company.
The main reason is because David is a coach who listens acutely, has a limitless supply of empathy, and has a mastery at helping you solve your problems. Initially, David helped me with strategic thinking, which included putting together programs with themes for my teams, instead of just reporting on lists of tasks my teams were doing.
He helped me connect the dots between our goals and company values and be able to talk confidently about it. I also asked him for help with executive presence. Over the course of two years, David has helped me in all these areas, plus a bonus of coaching through difficult conversations with people who far outrank me. I went from having line-manager thinking to having an executive mindset. He challenges you to think bigger and broader.
The best part of this transformation was that David grew those traits within me, instead of just telling me what to do. I was able to experience a real change and carry that with me, instead of taking orders. David deeply understands how to build leaders in Bay Area technology companies.
