We started Leadersights with a lofty purpose: To make work marvelous for everyone. As you can imagine, not everyone likes their job. Let’s find out why and do something to fix it.
My vision is to live in a world full of people who enjoy their work so it elevates them out of poverty and allows them to contribute to uplifting humanity.
- Enjoying their work means they report high levels of satisfaction on collective surveys.
- Elevating them out of poverty requires that employers pay fair, living wages so working people improve their living condition
- Allowing them to contribute means that they not only satisfy their own needs but are able to help others on the journey out of poverty.
This mission is what we do everyday to achieve the vision. Our mission is to teach leaders how to create work systems that obliterate obstacles, accelerate innovation, and elevate performance.
I’ve learned over the years that unsolved problems, having no voice, and no real challenge makes work drudgery. Leaders have to learn to see how the work people are doing satisfies or fails to satisfy the people they’re responsible for. If it fails, it’s their job to provide the resources to fix it. We teach leaders these critical skills.
The underlying strategy to perform the mission and achieve the vision begins with teaching leaders to love, learn, and let go. These 3 simple yet difficult decisions are the keys to higher productivity, higher profitability, and higher professionalism globally. If we’re able to do this, the most visible result will be the smiles we see on the faces of people as they work.
Our values drive our behavior. Here are a few things that are important:
- Equity – Fair pay, balanced work, respect
- Open – Sharing, honest, integrity
- Learn – Listening
Value Proposition: Leadersights coaches teams to obliterate obstacles, accelerate innovation, and elevate performance by teaching leaders to love, learn, and let go. Leaders who apply what they learn see higher productivity, higher profitability, and higher professionalism in their workplaces.
- Obliterate Obstacles
- Accelerate Innovation
- Elevate Performance
… by teaching leaders to love, learn, and let go.

Hi, I’m David Veech and I’m a teacher.
I teach leaders how to Love, Learn, and Let go – the only three decisions they need to make to:
- Obliterate obstacles
- Accelerate innovation, and
- Elevate performance.
I’ve been teaching leaders to be more effective since 1989. For 20 years, I learned from the very best as an officer in the US Army. I’ve been on the faculty teaching leadership and lean systems at Stetson University, the Defense Acquisition University, the University of Kentucky, and the Ohio State University. I’ve also taught in the Executive Education program at Penn State University.
Most important, though, is the work and the learning I’ve enjoyed with clients in their offices, factories, construction sites, and hospitals; Clients like the US Postal Service, Owens Corning, Rolls-Royce, the Arizona Department of Economic Security, and Nationwide Insurance.
I speak to large audiences and hold intimate workshops with small executive teams. My presentations always give listeners practical skills and soaring possibilities that will:
- Convict their hearts that they need to change
- Convince their minds that they can succeed in the change, and
- Commit their efforts to make the change work for all.
If you’re tired of talking about a culture change and want to begin a meaningful journey, let’s work together.
If you think you have poor leaders and you want to create a better workplace, let’s work together.
Work should be fun and rewarding. Together, we can have a profound impact on the lives of your team members. Together we can attain higher productivity, higher profitability, and higher professionalism in our workplaces.
I’ve written the CRC Press best selling book “Leadersights: Creating great leaders who create great workplaces” (2017), and the Business Innovation Press best selling book “The C4 Process: Four Vital Steps to Better Work” (2011). I also created “FirstLine: A team leader’s guide to lean thinking” (2005, PKI) which is a learning program focused on first line supervisors.
I’ve been married to Mary for over 35 years. We have three children, 2 grandchildren, five dogs, a horse, and a herd of deer that Mary likes to keep fed through the winter.
