David Martin

Biography

David Martin is a business coach and consultant for leaders preparing to transform their business—leaders who are ready to go faster or further than their organizations and systems may be prepared for. For over two decades, he’s been guiding Fortune 50 executives and entrepreneurs (the visionaries who can see around corners) through the business and people challenges that predictably occur when driving to a new destination.

David and his team begin with the unique understanding that you cannot transform your business without transforming the way you lead. David’s pioneering work to help people “free the genius” to accelerate their transformation is a hallmark of his company’s work.

David and his team have guided thousands of business leaders across North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia in discovering and accessing the untapped genius in themselves and their companies. David also shares essential lessons for leaders through his popular blog posts, training programs, and speeches. His use of stories and metaphors helps people move quickly from frustrated visionary to connected, purposeful leader.

Clients have humorously given David various nicknames for his abilities to “see” what’s really happening beneath the surface and for respectfully calling out the hidden obstacles and openings that are slowing or accelerating success. These epithets include bomb-thrower, secret weapon, star-maker, Yoda, the doctor, and psychic.

David integrates multiple disciplines beyond mainstream business management, all grounded in the pragmatic schooling he received from his elders, 3 generations of Midwestern farmers. David and his team are known for delivering just-in-time guidance of the right resources at the right time, helping clients quickly leap to new levels of performance and results. Clients include Abbott Labs, Aetna, Barclaycard, Capital One, Gerdau, GlaxoSmithKline, Passport Labs, P&G, McKesson and Xero.
