Imagine a place where

you love going to work every day.

It's possible when you and your team get the right training & coaching.

Reduce Anxiety

Do Good Work

Get More Done

Any of these sound familiar?

  • Missed Deadlines
  • Gossip
  • Miscommunication
  • Unnecessary Conflicts
  • Turf Wars
  • Duplicated Work

All of these are killing your productivity - and your team.

If something doesn't change, burnout will be next.

What's Missing? Intentional Development

If you're overwhelmed by managing people, you're not alone.

A study in 2022 found that almost half of all managers have never received training to handle people issues. (FastCompany, Feb 2022)

Imagine how different your life could be if you had the right training.

  • Clear development plans for staff

  • Not afraid to have tough conversations

  • Greater self-awareness

  • Feeling more peaceful

  • Being trusted by your team

  • Feeling in control

That's why we offer training that works for leaders and their teams.

  • Team Communication - where the whole team learns their communication style and tools for better conversations
  • Altitude Training - for new and emerging leaders
  • 100X Training - for managers and senior leaders
  • Coaching - for any leader looking to make real progress

Christi Spangle

Founder + Partner

We had good processes and lots of technical expertise in place. But we were constantly struggling with people issues - including a key leader who was ready to quit.

We worked with Micah and Mike to implement leadership training for our leadership team and our youngest leaders. Now one year later, that key leader is doing a fantastic job managing her team. 

We have a retail garden center that has struggled to be profitable. We reached out to D4 Concepts, and they were able to come up with new ideas to help us see our first profit in the garden center in years.

Now we have asked them to help us develop better communication skills. Our management team is communicating and working better with each other already.

When I shared with D4 the growing pains our team was experiencing, they recommended that we do a “5 Voices” workshop.

During our workshop and coaching session, I witnessed pure emotions bubble up. Each person was able to fully understand and respect their own and other team members’ voices and what they bring to the table. They are already asking when the next 5 Voices workshop will be!

I would highly recommend the D4 Concept team for any personal coaching and team building needs that you may have.

We engaged D4 Concepts because we knew we were at the place in our growing company where we needed outside perspective.  Micah and Mike have brought that perspective and so much more. The leadership tools they have taught us have transformed our leaders and helped us reach our financial and strategic goals.
