David S Cohen, Ed. D. has a vision: organizations that thrive by living their values in good time and VUCA times. After 20 years in elementary and high school education, where he built a reputation for building school communities based on purpose and social responsibility. Thirty years ago, David transitioned to corporate consulting. As a consultant David earned a reputation as a contrarian consultant, helping leaders understand what is and what is necessary to build a strong organization. He does not always follow what is popular in his chosen field. David works with leaders to establish the conditions in which they identify and sustain authentic corporate cultures, value creation and highly engaged workforce for the firm to flourish.

He helps leaders’ step into life’s challenges, inspiring them to create a sustained approach through a positive values-based focus; resulting in better business results.

Although David loves his work as a thought leader in talent management, author and speaker, who he is and what excites him the most is when he’s hanging out with his grandchildren, attending Toronto Raptor’s games, or travelling the world with his wife.
