Testimonials

I am grateful for the trust my clients place in me and honored by those willing to share their experience below.

I worked with David Craig Utts as I was taking on a senior leadership role in a complex global business integration. David was extremely effective in assisting me in developing a better skill set in creating alignment across diverse and competing elements of the organization and build a centered and individually authentic style of leadership that was very effective. I would highly recommend David to anyone who is serious about developing leadership as an organizational core competency.

Through my work with David Craig Utts, I gained crystal clarity around the direction for my firm and realized the real power a heart felt vision has on forwarding results. I was also able to affect my team on a whole other level.  All of this has enabled me to have the authentic, courageous conversations necessary to set up steady growth of our firm for years to come. While I had some leadership chops before my work with David, he is truly a sage, and I grew more as a leader in our nine months together than I had over the past ten years combined. The benefit I gained has continued to deepen and I am indebted to David for his outstanding support in my career.

David Craig Utts assisted me to grow as a leader and also supported me to fulfill a vision I had for our firm to build an environmental practice. He served as an invaluable sounding board as I authored a business case for senior partners in our firm. The business case was accepted, and I was given the resources necessary to “green field” the practice. Within the year I gained several key customers, and the firm fully vested the practice, and I was named national practice leader. I am so grateful for the time I worked with David.

David Craig Utts has been a valuable resource for me, my team and AT&T. He assisted me personally in many ways, but primarily in helping me increase my leadership effectiveness and our team’s performance. What I appreciate most about David is that his approach was very aligned with our orientation for leadership and developing high performing teams. His thought process is highly strategic in an ever-changing business environment. David Craig takes the time to make sure his approach is always organizationally relevant and results focused.

Bottom line - working with David Craig Utts inspires greater leadership and contribution in others. I got more than I expected from my engagement with him. So much so that I had David work with five other key leaders in my organization. In every case, not only did these individuals become much stronger leaders - they had a measurable impact on our business that far exceeded our investment. If you are looking to enhance your success - I highly recommend you contact David.
