Scott David

Scott David is an executive coach and founder of Courage to Be where he brings 30 years of experience as an executive, entrepreneur, leadership and management consultant, and coach to his work with C-Suite executives and senior leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. He possesses a unique mix of real-world executive level experience, depth of knowledge of leadership development theory and application, and an understanding of adult development theory and therapeutic models for growth and change. Scott has participated as a facilitator in both the WICT BMLI and EDS programs.

His personal experiences supporting loved ones through terminal illness, cancer, life-threatening anxiety and depression, and addiction dramatically shaped his definition of emotional intelligence, which he now uses to help clients tap their own emotions, vulnerability, and courage as sources of strength, information, and wisdom.

When not coaching, Scott can often be found experimenting in his kitchen or running the trails in Rock Creek Park near his home in Silver Spring, Maryland.
