Hello! I'm David Harkins
Helping organizations improve social impact and engagement is what gets me out of bed in the morning.
Why? That’s the easy part. I’m inspired by the work that’s focused on making the world a better place. Yet, I understand how an organization’s dynamics can create complex problems that limit performance, impact, and engagement. We want to help.
My team and I help leaders and their organizations move through strategic and operational challenges, persistent conflict, misaligned and disconnected values, or any leadership challenge that threatens the successful delivery of the mission or the organization’s legacy.
Throughout my career, I have advised many well-known companies and organizations, including the Alzheimer’s Association, Arts For Life, the American Bar Association, Cargill Ag Horizons, Disabled American Veterans, Girl Scouts of the USA, Microsoft, and the National FFA Organization, Special Olympics, and Nation 4-H Council, to name just a few. I also served for more than a decade with the Boy Scouts of America, where I led retail e-commerce and brand licensing and trademark protection.
Insights and ideas to ignite growth and impact.
