About Us

David Harmony - Authorized Partner EVERYTHING DiSC
Reminding Individuals & Teams how to Flow in Life, offering Innovation and Compassion to Society

Harmony Consulting is focused on helping courageous Culture Change Agents through one of Life’s greatest challenges and honors – to Inspire large groups of people to expect more from their Life.

David reminds us that there is no separation between work and play. We bring who we are and how we're feeling, from home to work and back home each day. David's solutions and unique approach to inspiring change within individuals and across entire organizations, helps US bring our best self to-Life each day. David's approach to improving Team Dynamics begins with each individual, challenging and resetting their personal concerns for safety. Vulnerability-based trust for one another is the key to offering our best in our service of society. We must "go beyond the pay check".

You CAN remind others how to Empower their self and their Team of Teams (the modern organization) in the pursuit of their company's mission in society. Do you dare to?

Too often, prevailing work culture has incentivized people to remain compliant and avoid risk. Society's feel-of-separation has heightened the artificial Fear we have for each other. Financial implications of wrong-doing have compounded the effect on collective psyche. The modern Service economy is ridiculously hyper competitive. This is accelerating our individual sense of Separation, sparking us into an artificial sense of fight-or-flight for personal survival, putting us into individual competition with one another.

David's ultimate goal is to challenge the Beliefs that perpetuate this artificial Fear, replacing them instead with Direct Shared Experiences between Team members who engage in meaningful Shared Reflection. Perception is reality for the individual. Isn't it important that we Share reality to become an effective Team? Are we effective with our Customers, if we are ineffective as a Team? Imagine a scenario where Customer is literally ON the Team with us?

The next generation organization MUST Inspire and Leverage all of the Talent they hire to co serve the org’s mission. Many organization’s are now awakening to the essence of the problem. The brave minority of corporations and causes are now scrambling to adapt their prevailing collective mindset about how best to create REAL value for the part of society their Mission is aligned to serve.

Harmony Consulting has DEEP experience enabling this type of inspirational Leadership, across all layers of the org.

  • EVERYTHING DiSC 363® FOR LEADERS: A NEW KIND OF 360!

    Finally, a 360 for DiSC® users! But Everything DiSC 363® for Leaders isn't just any 360. It combines the best of 360s with the simplicity and power of DiSC, plus three personalized strategies for improving leadership effectiveness. The result is a 360° experience that's more productive and satisfying.

    For many leaders, 360s can be a frustrating experience. Open-ended comments can be unfocused and unhelpful and can even derail the learning process. With our exclusive selectable comments feature, CommentSmart, raters can give focused, balanced, constructive feedback—that the leader can actually use.

    Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders isn’t a collection of dry spreadsheets and charts without any explanation or story. Clear visuals and a conversational narrative style interpret and explain the data, making the report easy to understand and use.

    360s leave us asking “Now what?” 363 answers that question by giving leaders their next steps with three things they can focus on now.
