The Science of High-Performing Teams

At the core of David’s work is the Best Team EverTM model. In one simple framework, David distills 40+ years of research on teamwork, collaboration, motivation, and leadership to reveal the three things high-performing teams all share: Common Understanding, Psychological Safety, and Prosocial Purpose.

Common Understanding happens when team members understand the team’s expertise, assigned tasks, context, and preferences. Psychological Safety builds as team members feel safe to express themselves, take risks, and disagree respectfully. And Prosocial Purpose motivates by showing teams the meaningful contribution they make toward work that impacts others.

These three elements provide teams with a common set of norms and behaviors that guides their collaboration and improves their performance.

To Book David

David’s Process

Prepare

In addition to David’s independent research, we’ll schedule as many conference calls with key stakeholders as needed to determine the key outcome objectives and direction for program content.

Customize

After those calls, David will focus finding the perfect research insights and takeaways for your specific attendees, event themes, or organizational goals.

Deliver

David will deliver a highly customized, energetic, entertaining, interactive, strategic, and results-focused experience. In addition, David will make himself available the day of the event for anything that will deliver extra value, like book signings, Q&A sessions, or receptions.

Reinforce

Unlike many speakers, the learning doesn’t stop after the speech. Each client will receive several articles, videos, and/or books to reinforce learning. We can even film the event for clients to share after with attendees. All at no additional cost to you.
