On January 15, 2009, Dave was the last passenger off the plane that crashed into the Hudson River, best known as The Miracle on the Hudson, considered the most successful ditching in aviation history. He risked his own life in the frigid water and was able to use the skills and resources he learned throughout his life to not only survive but help others. He emerged from the wreckage that day with a new mission: to encourage others to do the right thing when faced with a life-changing decision.
That experience profoundly changed his life, which is why today he is passionate about traveling the globe to share his unique take on inspirational leadership and his timely message detailing how to help people make a difference both personally and professionally when faced with adversity.
US Airways flight 1549 was just six minutes long. One of the things Dave realized after he had a chance to reflect on that day, was that in an incredibly short amount of time, he had to make split minute decisions. There are six questions that helped him survive and help others. Dave often works one-on-one to assist individuals in defining what personal "six" questions they need in order to challenge themselves to reach their goals and find new success.

Leadership coaching doesn’t have to be a one-on-one process. Just like that day on the plane, 155 people had to come together
as a team to achieve something that never had been accomplished before. Like coaching a sports team, leadership involved honing the individual skills of others and then identifying which have the necessary traits to work together to accomplish new company goals.
