For over 20 years Dave has worked side by side with some of the world’s most elite performers. He began his law enforcement career in Las Vegas where he spent 9 years working in specialized units, including six years as the point man on the North Las Vegas SWAT Team. He later became an international tactical instructor and team leader for high-risk protection teams in Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa and Latin America. He has conducted hundreds of real-world tactical missions and his company continues to provide protection and tactical training to clients around the globe. Dave works overseas with hand-picked operators and instructors that include former Navy Seals, Special Forces, and Marine Recon, operators.
Over the last 20 years, Dave has focused on studying what makes these men so different from others. He uncovered four common characteristics that every elite performer possesses. These apply to all elite performers, whether they are competing in athletics, the corporate environment or the battlefield. The characteristics of success are the same regardless of the environment. The basic qualities that make a Navy Seal “elite” are the same qualities found in a pro-bowl NFL player, an Olympian, an extremely successful entrepreneur or a champion triathlete.
