What Makes The Leadership

Dojo Unique?

It’s having true behavioral flexibility when you're working with a group. You can flow and lead according to their needs rather than forcing them to play by your rules.


Great facilitation frees a group to think, feel, and act as a dynamic whole. It invites healthy conflict and genuine commitment.

It's more a set of ideas and principles working together, rather than a rigid plan.


This kind of leader is a master context creator and can display true flexibility stemming from experience and training— the kind of training you’ll receive in the leadership dojo.

  • Develop a personalized framework for facilitation that enables you to elegantly structure a facilitation session.

  • Structure frames to help steer a group towards positive change or learning and avoid potential pitfalls that could have derailed your facilitation.

  • Emotionally intelligent leadership-Differentiate between surface and deep structure language and recognize when and how to challenge the words used by group members to unlock learning.

  • Build and cleanly set up group exercises so they run cleanly and maximize their impact.

  • Set clear learning or change objectives that help you align the needs of sponsors with those of individuals within a group.

Coaching with David has allowed me to think about my business, my teams, and my conscious leadership in all new ways. 
He possesses the qualities of a sherpa who's helping you to climb what seems like Mt. Everest on a daily and weekly basis.  I recommend any leader of any organization or household, whether you are a manager or an executive or a teacher or public official who is interested and committed to doing things in a whole and better way. If you are really thinking infinitely and expansively at real true human potential than I would recommend you get coaching with David Young.

You won't regret it.
