Dan Eckert: The Journey for Every Leader is Unique. But No One is Alone.

Builder. Visionary. Never Gives Up.

In the early 2000s, Dan Eckert was flying high as president and COO of a fast-growing “dot-com” business. The future looked bright — until the market crashed. After years of painstaking survival, a merger rescued the business. Dan found himself in a new leadership role at a new company, and in need of guidance on how to move forward as a leader in this next phase of his career.

The new company’s CEO saw great potential in Dan and sent him to our Leadership at the Peak program. Here, Dan recognized something transformational: the journey for every leader is unique, but no one is alone. Sharing and collaborating with others along the way makes everyone stronger. Dan awoke to his own resilience and the value of compassion and humbling self-awareness. And, he learned how to channel those attributes into building, inspiring, and mentoring a team. With CCL’s help, Dan discovered that a bend in the road can lead to even greater opportunities.
