David Snider facilitated a two-day retreat for my administrative team and what a retreat it was! Not only did we leave the retreat recharged, but we all had a better appreciation for what we contribute to each other. This continues to be a topic in our work groups.Cheryl P. Johnson, CEO

David Snider builds on years of experience in Leadership and Team Development, Coaching, Diversity Education and Strategic Planning to help you and your organization appreciate the best in people and practices and build on those “bests.”

Here are some of David’s “bests”:

  • Taught over 50 top leaders of a state authority skills to transform how they work within their own divisions and in relationships across division boundaries. These leaders addressed the authorityís most pressing issues with skills from Appreciative Inquiry, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, the Power of a Positive No, and other skills to learn from and manage emotions. Using these skills, they gained new knowledge and respect for themselves and for each other.
  • Orchestrated a strategic planning for parents, teachers, administrators and board members of school for gifted children. Energized by the school’s ability to transform their children’s lives, participants created new directions for the school.
  • Guided a leader and team members in a 17,000-person organization to discover significant, opposite preferences about how to do their work. By the end of their journey they understood better the compromises they needed to make to work together creatively and productively.
  • Provided leadership for a corporate team to identify the ways in which age, hierarchy/empowerment, gender and race are sources of organizational costs and benefits and are important personally.
  • Led eGovernment transition team for a newly-elected county executive to create recommendations for ways the county could improve service to employees and other citizens by more effective use of the internet and related technology.
  • Managed a national ecumenical agency’s 18-month project to create a regional organization that enabled food providers and denominational agencies to work together. Work included identifying potential stakeholders, transforming them into active stakeholders, guiding development of mission, vision, strategy, fund raising, marketing and hiring staff.
  • Led long-term conversations of African American and white members of a religious community about the personal and societal sources and consequences of racism. Guided efforts to move from conversation to volunteer action for racial justice.
  • Led administrators, teachers, bus drivers, security people, cafeteria workers to greater awareness of how diversity affects their high school and them personally. Began process of diversity change that continued for several years and involved students.
  • Energized a leadership team with Appreciative Inquiry and MBTI® activities. One highlight was David’s “Appreciation of Colleagues” exercise in which team members described behaviors they liked and wanted their colleagues to continue.
