The best team outperforms a group of the best individual contributors every time. Team performance is directly correlated with connection. And the best leaders create the emotionally safe and cognitively challenging space for their teams to connect and perform.

David Evans is an executive and team coach who specializes in working with leaders and teams in the tech space to create connection for high performance.


At eBay, participants in workshops led by David describe him as a great coach and love his leadership style, which creates an environment that allows everyone to open up and be vulnerable.

David’s understanding of program design and playful facilitation made what could have been a daunting task fun and inspiring.

David’s impact on our program cohorts has been transformative, creating leaders who are connected to themselves, each other and the organization.

Zeenath Khan, Head of Finance Leadership Development Programs at eBay


Dave has a very special talent for being able to listen, to understand and to reflect from different perspectives. Through working with Dave, I gained a much better understanding of what is important to me, what I find truly fulfilling and of my personal mission. Once I understood this, my company mission, vision and values became clear. I made changes that needed to happen, happen. Working with Dave was like going to a chiropractor for the soul – my values and my actions feel much more aligned.
