David Quick is the CEO of “Helping Bulls Thrive in China Shops,” a leadership organization that teaches leaders to utilize the energy and passion of their teams to spur growth and commit to positive vision and values for their businesses.

David calls himself a “recovering bull,” and he learned early in his career that his passion and power could be leveraged to become a force of forward momentum. David’s organization uses executive coaching, keynote presentations, group sessions, and events to turn teams into powerful herds of high-performing bulls.

In this episode, David shares his personal journey of self-understanding and career growth and explains how reflecting on his career gave him the drive and experience to coach others. David discusses employee engagement, the ripple-effect of vision and values, and how a strong vision and core values can draw in the right talent to build your herd and put the right people in the right seats.

By finding and hiring high-performing bulls, you can turn your herd into a powerful cohesive business with a shared vision and passion for success. Listen and learn from David Quick’s no-BS wisdom!
