David brings over 30+ years of leadership and coaching experience into every aspect of his company, developed through his personal and professional involvement at every level of government as well as from a national non-profit organization. He has been an adjunct professor in the College of Natural Resources at North Carolina State University since the late 1990’s where he has been recognized for his exceptional teaching abilities by the university and the students. Additionally, David has also been recognized as a leader and visionary within his community where he was awarded The Order of the Long Leaf Pine, the highest civilian award bestowed by the Governor of the State of North Carolina.
Helping people to grow both personally and professionally has been David’s passion for his entire working career. Whether in a professional environment or in the classroom, David has a unique talent of helping people achieve goals they never imagined they could on their own. It was that passion to help others that drove him to create Growing Leaders, llc.
David created Growing Leaders,llc in order to reach an even wider audience in a world that has become crass in adding value to other’s lives. Because all leadership begins with the individual and their own behavior, Growing Leaders,llc focuses on behavioral based leadership development. It is behavioral changes that fuel our own growth and bring about the lasting results that we are all seeking in life.
Growing Leaders,llc believes that everyone within an organization deserves to grow in their leadership abilities and as such has created programs specifically designed for every employee, regardless of their position within the company. We accomplish this by working with each individual in creating a personal development plan. Through this organizational approach the employee feels empowered and valued, thus raising the productivity and reputation of the company.
David has a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts and a Master’s degree from North Carolina State University. As a lifelong learner, David became a Founding Member of the John Maxwell Team in 2011 to continue his journey in leadership education. He lives outside of Raleigh with his wife Karen and golden retriever “Finley.”
Just as every acorn does not sprout, not every person will take the time and energy required to master the necessary skills towards becoming an outstanding leader.
In fact, only about two out of every one hundred people will take the time to master the skills needed to really ascend in their career. The rest are left wondering what happened.
Growing Leaders,llc is a unique personal growth and leadership development firm specifically designed to work with anyone who is deeply committed to transforming their lives and reaching their full potential.
I attended a conference session at the NRPA Congress led by David Carter, founder of the Carter Consulting Group and Growing Leaders. His presentation was interactive, thought provoking, and influential. He inspired me to manage complex issues by tapping into the creativity of the individuals I work with. In this era of “do more with less", David gave me solid tools that will help me continue to serve my families with the high quality they expect and deserve. I highly recommend that Parks and Recreation professionals partner with Carter Consulting Group and Growing Leaders to develop and implement an innovative framework to address leadership development and organizational management within their organizations.
David Carter has personally changed my life. In the classroom, David challenged me in a way that I had not been previously challenged before. He pushed me to grow into a student with a definite aim and purpose in my career trajectory. He has the perfect skill set to apply to a young mind that is seeking personal and professional growth. He blends real career experiences with tangible class material to provide a very unique learning experience.
