Dave Anderson – Leadership Author, Keynote Speaker, Trainer, and Character Evangelist

100% Veteran Owned

I truly believe people follow us because of WHO WE ARE and not because of what we can do. Whether I am keynote speaking or leading seminars I am told over and over again, “No one is talking about this stuff, Dave.” If other experts do talk about character or integrity, they tell us we must have it, but they rarely explain how to develop character or integrity.

If you want:

  • A speaker who provides more than just a sugar high and actually pushes audiences to grow
  • A passionate Character Evangelist who challenges the leadership status quo
  • A real plan for growing Leaders of Character in your midst

West Point Style Leadership

My Father, General Jim Anderson

My father, The Master of the Sword at West Point, taught me that leadership is a blend of competence and character. My school, West Point showed me continuous character education and reinforcement is the way to grow exceptional leaders of character from high potential people. My 20 plus years in a Fortune 50 company illustrated that focusing development on competence training alone is inadequate.

Leading in Your Twenties – You’ve Been Given Bad Advice

Twenty somethings, you’ve been given bad advice. “Get a marketable degree and good grades from a big university. Get advanced degrees and have a lot of letters following your name.

Leading in Your Twenties – Don’t Wait to Be Told to Lead

“How do I get promoted to leadership?” seemed to be the top question people in their twenties asked me during my years leading in the corporate world. My reply was always, “Start leading now!” The fact is, too many talented people in their twenties wait for someone to tell them to lead.

When a Mistake is Not a Mistake

Cheating on your wife is more than a mistake. A mistake is when you knock over someone else’s drink – Oops! When a man calls cheating a mistake, he is insinuating he accidentally got naked, fell on top of that naked woman, in a hotel room, after buying her drinks, and turning off his phone […]

Fear and the Micromanager

“She’s a micromanager! Fifteen years and she is still looking over my shoulder checking up on me. She still doesn’t trust me!” Micromanaging? Some say this is a trust issue. That may be what it looks like from the outside. But, inside the micromanager the issue is often plain old-fashioned fear.
