What Is Collective Ingenuity?

As you pursue your mission, problems and possibilities arise. When this happens, your team has to, find ideas that work, ignite resourcefulness, and adapt fast and smart. When these three dynamics come together, you create ingenuity—a kind of alchemy— and your mission advances.

Of Collective Ingenuity

Our Clients (Past And Present)


“In my role as Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for a complex healthcare system, I asked for Dave’s help during a period of significant organizational change. On several occasions, Dave was the keynote presenter at our Leadership forums which included over 500 of our management team. Dave’s talks were always the highlight of our forums as he not only helped our leaders learn, he inspired them!!!!”
-John Marques
“Dave’s teaching style and presentation to the students has been nothing short of exceptional. Dave has shown the ability to take a collection of students who don’t know each other, uncover their passion to become leaders and develop them into a group of people who share a vision of how to achieve their goals. Dave’s presentation is often one of the most talked about portions of the program.”
-Geoffrey Leggett, Alead Academy Director, Assistant Chief of Police, Surprise, AZ
“Changing the world, and our communities, does not happen on it’s own. Making real change requires inspiration, strategic design and coaching. I have watched Dr. Dave Fleming create this kind of change in our region through his speaking, coaching and writing. Our community has both great challenges and opportunities and Dave has worked with a wide range of stakeholders to create positive sustainable change.”
-Sara Owen, President and CEO, Southwest Florida Community Foundation
“When planning a meeting for administrators/staff from all over the US, one needs the keynote speaker to be dynamite and engage the audience. This definitely sets the tone for the rest of the conference. Dave Fleming, keynote speaker for the 32nd SROA annual meeting did just that! Dave’s session on Tribal Achemy, Turning Lesser into Better Together, received nothing but positive remarks. Can’t wait to hear him again! Thanks Dave”
- Teena Adkins, 2014-2015 SROA President and Co-chair Program Committee
