Beyond Business Leadership Legacy Statement

David stands up for what's right in his community and stays true to his values.  

Who Are You in One Sentence? How Do You Want to Be Known and Remembered?

I want to be known and remembered as someone who seized each and every day and inspired others to be the best version of themselves. 

What Do You Care Deeply About? What Do You Stand For?  Something is calling you. 

I care deeply about being authentic, speaking my mind to build depth and efficiencies, and not being afraid to put myself out there.

When Do You Feel MOST Lit Up? What are You Doing at That Time? Who Are You With?

I feel most lit up when I am enjoying outdoor activities or games with close friends. Skiing, golfing, even playing a card game! 

Where Do You Want to be 12 Months From Now on Your Leader Path?   

In 12 months, I want to be in a Specialist position with Hilti. In 5 years, I want to be in a management position. 

And Why? 

I want to be in a specialist position because it will allow me to develop a special skill set and allow me to interact with different people in the organization. It will also best position my talents, gifts, and drive to fully develop into a long, successful career with Hilti.
