Dan is an Executive/Leadership Coach and OD Specialist for ELP. Dan earned his degree from the University of Maryland. He’s exceptionally well credentialed in the leadership arena evidenced by his Master Certified Coach (MCC) status with the International Coach Federation (ICF)—a certification that is precious in its rarity and won with over 3000 hours of hands-on coaching experience. Of particular note, he earned his coaching qualifications through Georgetown University’s prestigious coaching program.
We, and everybody who meets Dan, respect him because he’s been in the shoes of those he coaches. His coaching comes from an enormous wealth of experience that’s tough to mimic. In particular, he can boast 30 years as a business owner and leader. His leadership journey runs the gamut from front-line supervisor to president of a company that made the Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies list, to serving on the board of one of America’s largest, private B2B information firms. Dan has done an elegant job integrating his work experiences with top shelf coaching and OD tools. His badges and certifications include: the Emotional Social Competency Inventory, the Leadership Circle Profile 360, and the Global Leadership Profile. He is also unique in that he’s certified in The Immunity to Change coaching protocol developed by Drs. Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey of Harvard University, used to help leaders and their organizations overcome resistance to change.
Dan brings to ELP’s financial-services clientele a strong background in bank regulation, enforcement, and supervision. As a former publisher, Dan provided institutions with news, analysis and guidance to help them comply with federal safety-and-soundness requirements. His work has also taken him inside Army bases, Big Data and ERP software firms, health care systems, global construction companies, ride-hailing providers, international relief organizations, trucking & logistics companies, and many federal agencies. To this day still holds the internal ELP record for most impressive interview performance, which included a rigorous role-play scenario!
When Dan’s not knocking the socks off a client engagement, he loves classical music, nature hikes, traveling with his wife, and being a dad to his two daughters.
