Proven Strategies for Building Your Next-Gen Leader

Engaging Keynote Speaker

Results Driven Sales Growth Consultant

Hope-filled Leadership Coach

Informal Intro

Some of my clients say I’m a vision-casting leader. Others call me The Accountability Queen. In reality, both make sense. My top Strengths Finder traits include: futurist, maximizer, activator, and achiever.

Formal Bio

As an energizing keynote speaker, a best-selling author, and executive leadership coach,  I am a vision-casting  catalyst for resilient CEOs, presidents, and business owners who are committed to:

    • thriving in today’s disruptive market conditions,
    • improving their business results, and
    • expanding their leadership influence.


As a business owner and leader myself, I understand the challenges. The new reality we are facing requires us to pull out all the stops to build high-performance leadership and sales teams.

Based on decades of work, and our proven process, I work with you to:

    • Strengthen your leadership strategies,
    • Improve your sales growth revenues, margins, and/or market share, and
    • Expand your leadership influence.


As a sought-after virtual speaker, I apply my top Strengths Finder traits, including: futurist, maximizer, activator, and achiever to inspire hope and cast a vision for the future. I focus on leaders who need insights on how to manage Millennials and Next-Gen Leaders. I have worked with teams across 5 of 7 continents: India, Africa (Tanzania, South Africa), Asia (China), Australia, Europe (The Netherlands), and the United States. I’m still looking for opportunities in South America and Antarctica. (I know I have some followers in South America. However, I haven’t noticed anyone from Antarctica yet.)

David Horsager, Trust Edge Leadership Institute, says, “Inspiring, relevant, and actionable, this book is a tool­box to build trust and influence and impact our current and future leaders. We need to do this now!” Get it HERE.

One of Danita’s best traits is that she’s not afraid to tell me something I may not agree with. In my book, that’s what makes her a trustworthy Executive Leadership Coach. The leadership development plan based on the assessment results is a great follow-up that provides coaching guidance for improving any weaknesses.
