Interview with Dave Lundberg
This week we are privileged to visit with Dave Lundberg!
What brought you to coaching?The path to coaching was slow and gradual. It started out by being a coachee. As an upcoming local government leader I was afforded the opportunity to work with a coach. From there the gifts of the relationship just kept on arriving.
It was after a lengthy senior leadership role that I realized it was my calling to share my experiences to a wider array of people than just my reporting staff and those I came in contact with during organizational life. My journey to become a professional Coach started there.
Attending the Newfield Network Coach Training in 2017 is what catapulted me to take coaching on full time and here we are!
Where do you see yourself impacting others in coaching?It starts with being present for my clients. From there it goes to a deep understanding of how to challenge narratives and stories, in a very respectful way, that keep people stuck.
I coach to explore and I always encourage reflection. In our fast-paced world, we seldom take time to reflect on what we are doing. In our reflections awaits the learning about the next phase of the journey we want to take.
What niche(s) do you thrive in?Based on my career experience, the niche presented to me is to coach emerging and current leaders. These are our front-line leaders that make or break our organizations, businesses and government agencies.
Leadership is a passion, and I have experienced how it reflects directly into life. I have had great success coaching people making life shifts; whether it is health and wellness, relationships or addictions. It all starts with creating a vision of the new destination.
