“Embracing Change from the Inside Out”.
When driven to achieve an extraordinary vision, how we embrace desired change—or move away from it—determines our success. Because our emotions directly impact our interpersonal and professional competence, increasing our Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is key to achieving greater effectiveness, functionality and productivity.

Articulate—and calibrate—the complexity, pace, stress, and pressure of the forces that are running your life.
Get the kind of support you need from others in your life to make the changes you desire.
Identify and own the obstacles within you in order to obliterate them.

Whether 30-minutes or two-hours—Connection 101 is a distinctively fun, engaging, and energizing participatory experience. It’s a series of exercises done individually, in pairs, small groups, or with the group as a whole. Most of these exercises can easily be repeated by participants on a daily basis outside the workshop. Intermixed throughout the workshop are principles, actions and stories that support participants in tapping the benefits of the practices they’re learning.

David is an extremely "out of the box" thinker who really stretched my thinking about what I do and why I do it. I highly recommend him to support business leaders wrestle with questions of purpose and describing the value you bring to clients.
David exemplifies leadership and is always highly supportive of initiatives that enhance skills and overall emotional intelligence. David is very eloquent and facilitates workshops in an interactive and engaging style. As our consultant, he is particularly instrumental with our Welkbeing initiative, and delivers a session on “Mindful Breathing.” The "best of the best" would describe David’s client centered service ethic. We have had many employees recommend David and are always ready to attend/participate on his sessions. They speak very highly of David’s facilitation skills and quality of content. David is committed to the core and that is why he is our first choice when it comes to selecting an external consultant.
David managed two programs for our company. One for our Sales Group and one for all of our employees. Both programs were very successful and we continue to use many of the ideas that David suggested with excellent results. I highly recommend David and his Whiteboard sessions. It will force you to think outside the box and is a great way to get all of your employees on the same page.
David was asked to lead a visioning exercise for the local chapter of a national non-profit. David partnered closely with the leadership team to first deeply understand "who we are" and then through a set of exercises helped us to identify "who we want to be in the future". The resulting work product exceeded our expectations.
David Winkelman is a true professional to work with. He has shown me insights into using visual facilitation and team building to create great results! If you are looking to involve your team, or expand on your overall business vision, David is perfectly suited to show you a new path with exciting possibilities!
David has worked as a consultant with Seaside Naturals to improve our clarity both in an operational sense as well as how we communicate with investors, business partners and sales accounts. He is both a wordsmith and a creative thinker that has improved our verbal language and written documentation.
