About this show

David’s passion for diversity and equality is evident in this episode and he works tirelessly to educate people in this area, sharing the lessons he has learnt along the way, following his upbringing in New Orleans.  

His love of sport is also clear in this episode and when an injury put an end to his own sporting career, he chose to lead in sport instead. David shares that the need for connection is critical in jujitsu which is a sport he engaged in as an athlete.  He believes connection is also crucial in teamwork and group dynamics, alongside 3 other elements which he shares with us.  

He talks about knowing when to lead and when to follow.  When times are tough he likes to lead from the front, and when times are great, he leads from behind and empowers his team. 

He believes it’s important to not allow himself to be over anxious or over self-absorbed so he can perform at his best. 

An uplifting and inspiring half hour.
