Leadership Competencies: Vision-Alignment-Execution

About Us

Alan Duncan
DiSC lover and Five Behaviors afficionado

I am a native of Scotland and now a US citizen living in Houston, Texas. Before entering the world of learning and development in 1990 I had an extremely diverse personal international work history.
I raised venture capital for medical equipment development, sold oil and gas drilling funds and led truck convoys from Europe to the Middle East. I was an agricultural contractor, sales person, manager and team leader.
I have never had a salary! I have always been paid for producing results.
My background equips me to relate to the challenges of workplace personnel from the factory floor and wellhead to the C-level suite.
