The Open Gateway Program
Traditional ways of training, teaching, and coaching no longer deliver what people need for these times.
I stopped doing training the old way six years ago because I saw that it didn't make a lasting impact. I supported my daughter to find her own way through school because I saw how little she was actually learning in most classrooms. I created Integrative Development as an alternative that aligns with how people naturally learn and develop. It is the foundation for Narrative Coaching and the essential philosophy that guides everything we do. For the first time ever, I am making the fundamentals of these essential ways of being and working available in one program.
What if you could work without an agenda, a curriculum, or a goal?
In the Open Gateway Program you will experience this work firsthand, starting with yourself as a human being and a practitioner. Through this program, you can integrate the best of who you are and what you know in how you work. Developing yourself five levels, you will learn how to work with whatever emerges in the moment in your life and your work.
It is also THE gateway to our Certifications in Narrative Coaching and in Integrative Development. Our Certifications offer you a path to mastery so you can stand out in a crowded market and stand tall in a world in need. It starts with The Open Gateway Program where you can learn the best of David's work to re-invent yourself and your practice for these times.BOOK A CALL
There are no formulas to address the challenges we face. David's work honors all that I am and know and supports me to improvise in addressing my clients’ new now.

This was one of the best—possibly THE best workshop—I have ever attended. David is bold and sincere. He practices what he preaches. It was life-changing.

The safe and loving container David provides for transformation is unlike anything I've experienced. His ability to hold space for participants is AMAZING!

Message from David
I have brought together the best of the first half of each of our three programs. The result is the first-ever master class on the foundations of my work over the past 25 years. For those of you seeking to become a Narrative Coach: you will not only get most of our original program, but so much more.
For example, you will get access to the revolutionary Developmental Threshold Zones model from our ID program and strategies for helping clients who are struggling to open themselves up from our Narrative Release program. It is a dream come true for me and a game-changing opportunity for you.
This program opens up a whole world for you with access to our upgraded, world-class Certifications in Narrative Coaching and Integrative Development. You will also gain access to our Labs and an amazing global community. I hope you join us for this cohort.
