About the author (2012)

At 18, David G. Giese was introduced to his first book on the subject of personal development and the concept that you do not have to be sick to get better. After only this brief introduction to personal development, he took some of the basic concepts and utilized them while earning his college degree. Though only an average student in high school, and challenged with a learning disability, he graduated from college in four years with honors and as the business school’s top management student! His professional, high tech career includes 17 years at IBM and 13 years at Dell in many roles including middle management. In 24 years of leadership, he had the opportunity to not only mentor his own teams but also many others colleagues in those companies.

He is a loving husband of 30 years, a father of two sons, and a picture of health participating in sprint triathlons annually. David became a certified Life Coach in 2006, authored his first book on life skills in 2009 and has positioned himself to pursue his passion of helping others set and reach their goals through the development and practice of important life skills!
