In this episode, we share an insightful conversation with David Orbuch, a leader who thrives on change. David details his unique perspectives on leadership, the importance of passion, and the role of resilience in the face of adversity. Enjoy!
Thriving on Change
David Orbuch is a dynamic leader who instigates change rather than shies away from it. He drives transformation with his infectious energy and passion. “Change is glorious for me, because I really like learning and growing and developing.”
But David’s leadership approach isn’t about working alone; it’s about leveraging the collective power of a team, especially those who are smarter and more industrious than him. This principle of collaborative leadership is an integral part of his success.
The Importance of Attitude, Adjustment, and Action
According to David, a crucial aspect of navigating change revolves around three fundamental principles: attitude, adjustment, and action. His diverse career experiences honed these principles, which took him from the Department of Justice in the United States to an expat assignment in London and Brazil and back to business transformation in the US.
One of the most significant highlights of this conversation is David’s narrative about overcoming a severe workplace failure. His hospital was on the brink of closure due to a flawed sterilization process, and he had only a week to rectify it. This was a situation where his principles of attitude, adjustment, and action were tested. With the power of team collaboration, David managed to save his hospital from closing. His experience serves as an inspiring testament to resilience and the power of collective problem-solving.
Effectively Navigating Change for Life
David’s resilience extends beyond his professional life. He emphasizes the importance of maintaining equilibrium in different aspects of life, including physical health, family, finances, and community. These factors form a solid foundation, allowing him to navigate change more effectively.
Upon returning from his expat assignments, David underwent another career transition. He created Bold Pursuits, a company dedicated to helping small and medium businesses pursue their objectives. This venture reflects his commitment to help others navigate their paths to success.
Growth Through Change
David Orbuch’s story offers valuable insights on leading through change, the importance of attitude, adjustment, and action, and the power of resilience in overcoming adversity. His experiences remind us that change, while often challenging, can also open doors to personal growth and new opportunities.
