President, The DRH Group
Doug Hensch, brings a wealth of experience and passion to the work he provides for his clients. His philosophy is simple: Set meaningful goals. Identify your strengths. Work in them regularly. This philosophy guided him at Nextel Communications where he led the company’s eCare efforts that resulted in yearly savings that exceeded $10 million. Working in his strengths with purpose helped him launch a leading self-improvement web site that helped over 100,000 people increase their well-being and resilience.
Doug has touched the lives of business executives, managers, and individual contributors with innovative coaching, engaging workshops, and thought-provoking consulting. Dr. Martin Seligman, Fox Leadership Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and the ‘father of Positive Psychology,’ referred to Doug as one of his “most talented young colleagues.” As an executive coach, Doug relies on his curiosity, experience and in-depth knowledge of human potential to help individuals set and exceed their goals. He received his training and coaching credentials through the International Coaching Academy. Doug lives and works in Leesburg, VA, and spends his free time coaching his two boys in football, basketball and baseball. Doug recently took up Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to learn more about failure and his first book (Positively Resilient: 5 1/2 Secrets to Beat Stress, Overcome Obstacles, and Defeat Anxiety) was published in October, 2016.
