Welcome To

the Doctor's den

David “Dr. D.” Leitner here.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to my little piece of the internet. 

Here I share thoughts about a gamut of topics from my academic life and research (Strategy, Politics, Power, Leadership, Followership, and more), parenting (and how it is a lot like leadership…), my personal life as an Israeli Defense Forces disabled veteran and former Lone Soldier, and the Chronic Pain disorder – CRPS –  that is part and parcel to every decision and action I take.

You can find out about the different lectures I give as a motivational speaker and about my work as a leadership and strategy adviser. My talks intertwine my personal story and research to teach about perseverance, leadership, and teamwork. 

As if that isn’t enough, I am going to give you a peek into the really crazy part of my life – training as an IPSC wheelchair shooter.

I hope you will visit often as I take deep dives, and short shallow wading, into these and a bunch of other topics. Together we will learn, share, and get better – as parents, leaders, and strategists directing the path of our lives.

Join me on this journey of continual self-discovery and the perpetual rewriting of life.

If you would like to read the accompanying blog posts, some of which expand on these and other topics, please check out the “The Archives” section of this site.

If you want to follow along as I share the pain –  check out my feed on Instagram which also appeard in the “My Journey” section of this site.

I look forward to your feedback.

Thank you.
