Why FlashPoint? “I've always wanted to be part of a team that is truly willing to make the business world a better place and do it in a fun, powerful, and deep way!”
You’ll find him connecting with people across the world, either in a classroom, in the office, or out in the field. With his background in positive psychology, coaching, and emotional and spiritual intelligence, he encourages participants to bring their whole selves to the sessions he facilitates. Participants he’s worked with across North and South America find his facilitation style engaging, deeply authentic, and energizing. Dan is committed to helping people understand where their true power comes from and bring awareness to their daily behaviors, especially uncovering the areas they might not realize impact their business and personal success. He believes that the conversations we tend to avoid are the ones holding us back and unleashing all that energy can liberate people, teams, and organizations to move to a higher level.
