Donovan's journey, marked by the physical and mental challenges of military service, instilled a profound understanding of the importance of ongoing personal development, balance, and resilience. Transitioning to the corporate world, he noticed a lack of emphasis on leaders' growth and well-being. Donovan recognized the pressing need for personalized development programs tailored to executives' unique challenges and circumstances.
