Coaching Teams and Leaders to Become the Best Version of Themselves
An Independent Perspective
We work with leaders and teams who are competent, capable, and have constructive intensions. They can greatly benefit from an independent voice that doesn’t have an agenda, isn’t trying to impress, and can bring prudent candor to unique challenges and opportunities.
If you’ve never done the job, you’re going to be hard pressed to coach someone else to manage, lead, coach, listen, or countless other skills, knowledge, and behaviors operators need to master to lead effective teams. When your coach works across organization sizes, geographies, and industries, you benefit from their unique perspectives beyond the industry norms you already understand.
When it comes to leadership, it’s often less about skills or knowledge – you already know what to do. The outcomes you desire most will come from a change in behaviors. That’s where working with a coach who has worked with other executives, leaders, and teams like yours will provide invaluable experiences to implement proven practices.
- New in a role, trying to clean up after the last leader, or exploring new paths.

Enhancing Team Dynamics for Greater Collective Impact
The nature of work has changed and so have the teams who support it. Unifying a team around a common mission, while ensuring they understand the team dynamics affecting their work is critical. Work is still done by people, who need to have a foundation of trust and deepening relationships. David Nour uses the HBDI assessment tool to identify team dynamics that are essential to productivity, profitability, and innovative. David also advises teams, and their leaders, to navigate the virtual work environment and improve digital communication skills for consistent results.
Nour helps groups to move past relationship issues, executive exits, M&A impact, complacency and stagnation to re-energize team performance by helping them understand team dynamics. Your teams also need guidance to effectively develop, implement, and monitor corporate strategy during times of immense change. Teams benefit through an atmosphere of learning and growth while working on day-to-day tasks or through participating in innovation teams.
