Expert Start With Why Facilitator
David Mead believes that everyone deserves to wake up inspired to go to work, feel safe while we’re there, and go home at the end of the day fulfilled by the work they do. For almost 10 years, David has worked with leaders worldwide to help them shift their perceptions about leadership and culture to create an environment where people come to work because they want to, not because they have to.
In 2004, David began his career in corporate training. A few years later, while earning an MBA with a focus in Organizational Development, he realized something. What he, and so many other people, were being taught in business school was contributing to the poor leadership he had been enduring for much of his career. In 2009, shortly after beginning his MBA studies, he met, and was inspired by Simon Sinek and his concept of the Golden Circle and was invited to join Simon’s team. He started by developing content to help Simon share his powerful ideas and in 2012 he began speaking and facilitating his own workshops.
David has now taken his years of practice and co-authored with Simon, Find Your Why, a step-by-step, practical guide on how to discover the Why for any individual, team, or organization. He is globally recognized as the “How” guy to Simon’s “Why.”
David has presented these simple, inspiring ideas on five continents to over 200 organizations in a wide range of industries such as athletics, technology, retail, healthcare, finance, government, and hospitality. Regardless of the organization’s size, industry or country, David finds that these ideas resonate with those who want to find meaning in what they do and are committed to creating a culture where people come before profit.
