Tribal Alchemy is a human ingenuity framework. Because of this, Dave speaks on a broad range of topics that pertain to a group’s ability to transform their challenges and opportunities into creative solutions. Dave also speaks to leaders about the qualities most needed to lead great tribes. Dave can tailor any of his speaking topics to fit your needs.
A one to 3 hour overview of Tribal Alchemy and its basic elements. Great for Keynotes, organizational and association meetings and gatherings for the purpose of inspiring collective change.
Half day to 3 day workshops intended for a deeper dive into Tribal Alchemy. Great for longer workshops, retreats and learning events focused on helping your tribe execute the process and practices of tribal alchemy.
Because of the flexibility of the framework, Dave is often asked to speak on a particular element of the framework and can tailor topics to meet the needs of planners and leaders of events. Topics include:
From command and control to discover and facilitate
Why attention is essential to alchemy and how to increase your tribe’s attention quotient
The role of words and language in creative solution making. How tribes talk, matters
Why it matters and how to facilitate it
The practices of great tribal members and why you should be one
Throughout Dave’s three decades of work and coaching, he has come to see the importance of great question making. The best tribes and leaders learn how to ask great questions. Because of this, Dave has developed a question-making methodology he has shared with people across the country. Question Yourself is a personal question making process that can help you understand:
Why questions matter so much to your personal and professional legacy
How to create better questions at life’s various “choice points”
The four questions that can always help you discover where you are and what to do next
Question yourself is great for enrichment programs at conference centers, conferences and learning events. Dave can also tailor the material to work in organizational and groups settings because question-making is critical to the alchemy process.
Dave is as engaging in front of thousands of people as he is around a table of five. He provides keynotes, workshops and tailored learning events that fit the needs and desire of his clients.
