Meet the Author

David Ross established Performance Unlimited in 1993 as a coaching organization centered on his unique coaching model that pioneers corporate leadership coaching and delivers coaching development solutions to executive leadership communities in banking, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, IT and Telcos, as well as some public sector organizations.

The company’s unique proposition is to enable individuals to develop behavior change that complements their strengths and is totally aligned to the business results that they and their organizations want them to achieve.

This trademarked model, “Six Steps to Unlimited Performance,”® forms the lynchpin of the company’s success in helping businesses and the individuals that run them to achieve their objectives and improve their performance. Having created such a powerful and effective tool, it is not surprising that David has great enthusiasm for and commitment to executive coaching and is much in demand on the lecture circuit.

“Our unique proposition is to enable individuals to develop behavior change that complements their strengths and is totally aligned to the business results that they and their organizations want them to achieve.”

High Performance Leadership is a five-step transformational program which delivers lasting results throughout the organization.

Traditional leadership team development programs take too long to deliver. Because High Performance Leadership is a truly integrated approach to developing high-performing teams and organizations, it accelerates the time it takes to build a high-performing team and will have a measurable impact in your current financial year.

A planned, progressive program of leadership development and shared culture, High Performance Leadership includes all the team and individual interventions required to bring about sustainable improvements in performance and ensure you get rapid results for your business.

High Performance Leadership is underpinned by distinctive, webbased software which helps you sustain improvements in your core processes.
