President and Founder
First Concepts Consultants, Inc.
“Don is the guy who asked the questions no one else ever asked.”
Don loves to discover the unknown and make a difference in our lives and the organizations we work for. Curiosity is his middle name. The answers he found boosted results like faster growth, better leaders, successful change efforts, cultures that boost performance, more effective teams, and better alignment between people and strategy.
After working his way up from the bottom to the C-Suite, he founded First Concepts where he has helped management teams in 36 industries. His major areas of focus today include leadership, strategy, alignment, structure, change, culture, teamwork, communications, governance, problem solving, systems thinking, and fixing the U.S. Healthcare system.
