This week my guest is David Villa!

With me, this week on The FRONT is a multi-talented businessman, speaker, and author... David Villa!

David Villa is the founder and CEO of iPD, a marketing, media and training firm that works with companies of all sizes and industries across the United States. He has over 20 years of national sales and executive management experience that he brings to his company.

David is a highly sought-after motivational speaker that brings innovation, excitement, and fire to any stage he is on!

David shared that great leaders have three phases:

  1. Motivation. These are the things we see outwardly, such as on social media or other outlets, maybe if you don't know them. 
  2. Inspiration. This happens when we can actually engage with other people and be impactful.
  3. Influence. This is a high area of leadership when you can really affect other peoples lives.

I asked David what are three characteristics of great leaders, or leaders he is looking for in his organization. I thought he had a really great answer. He said he doesn't often hire leadership from the outside. First off, he said they do a lot of growing people and promoting from within. This by itself is a great statement and forward-thinking leadership example.

He said that he looks for servitude, that servant leadership. Because of the fact that "leader's lead." People that are passionate, because passion is contagious. Someone who has passion doesn't just light their own fire, they light others that are around them! Third, is persistence. How do they handle themselves when they fail? Do they learn and move on, or do they dwell on the failure? Those characteristics in people are ones that propel leaders forward.

"Keep impacting people. Keep putting it all out there. Start where you are." ~ David Villa
