Doug is an expert at showing people how to discover their personal strengths so they can reach their goals smarter, faster and easier. Doug coaches individuals, speaks to groups, and consults with business owners and executives who want high performance teams.

In this program he teaches leaders how to identify other peoples' strengths so excellent choices are made and there are no more bad hires or short-sighted promotions.
Prior to starting a speaking and consulting business, Doug worked in the real estate industry for 16 years. He began as a licensed salesman at 21 years old with zero credibility in the business. Even though he had never owned real estate, he attempted to advise people on the biggest purchase of their lives. It took 7 months to make his first sale. But he stuck with it and at age 28, based on his sales success, his trade association gave him a lifetime sales achievement award. He was their youngest recipient. He later owned and operated one of the largest residential real estate brokerages in his city, giving him practical, hands-on experience in leadership, team building, sales, change management, communication, conflict resolutions and stress reduction.
Driven to share with others how anyone can find success by maximizing their personal strengths, in 1990, Doug started Smart Business Seminars. This later became Strengths International as the scope of the business grew. Over the last two decades, Doug and his associates have trained people from the world's largest corporations, small businesses, hospitals, factories, associations, and government offices. He has worked with organizations across North America and around the world.
