David Horsager

Motivational Speaker and Author

David Horsager is an author, business strategist, and keynote speaker. Through his book and programs he shares the secrets of using trust to impact the bottom line. Combining humor, illustrations, and memorable stories with research and insight, he sheds light on the confusion and misconceptions surrounding the cornerstone of personal and professional success.

Through his Master’s research, experience as Director of K-Life Inc., and founding partner of Special Delivery Productions, Horsager learned firsthand how the world’s most successful people gain and keep the trust of their customers and colleagues. He’s taken that knowledge and broken it down into tangible steps that audiences and readers can incorporate into their own lives right away.

As a Certified Speaking Professional, Horsager has delivered life-changing presentations on four continents, with audiences ranging from Fortune 500 executives to the armed forces and professional sports teams. He’s built his reputation on two things – being easy to work with and delivering engaging, high-energy speeches every time.

Horsager’s book is titled The Trust Edge How Top Leaders Gain Faster Results, Deeper Relationships, and a Stronger Bottom Line reveals the foundation of genuine success—trust. Based on research but made practical for today’s leader, The Trust Edge shows that trust is quantifiable and brings dramatic results to businesses and leaders. In this book, Horsager teaches readers how to build the 8 Pillars of Trust:

1. Clarity: People trust the clear and mistrust the ambiguous.
2. Compassion: People put faith in those who care beyond themselves.
3. Character: People notice those who do what is right over what is easy.
4. Competency: People have confidence in those who stay fresh, relevant, and capable.
5. Commitment: People believe in those who stand through adversity.
6. Connection: People want to follow, buy from, and be around friends.
7. Contribution: People immediately respond to results.
8. Consistency: People love to see the little things done consistently.

When leaders learn how to implement these pillars, they enjoy better relationships, reputations, retention, revenue, and results. Fascinating and timely, The Trust Edge and Horsager’s presentations unveil how trust has the ability to accelerate or destroy any business, organization, or relationship. The lower the trust, the more time everything takes, the more everything costs, and the lower the loyalty of everyone involved. Conversely, an environment of trust leads to greater innovation, morale, and productivity. The trusted leader is followed. From the trusted salesperson, people will buy. For the trusted brand, people will pay more, come back, and tell others. Trust, not money, is the currency of business and life.

When he’s not speaking or writing, Horsager continues to research and consult through Horsager Leadership. He also serves as an Adjunct Professor of Organizational Leadership for Bethel University’s graduate program. He lives in St. Paul, MN with his wife, Lisa, and their four children.
