About Insight Coaching

Thank you for visiting Insight Coaching, LLC.  By offering convenient virtual coaching sessions, geographical locations are no longer a limitation.  I will meet you virtually at your location, where you feel most comfortable.

In choosing to work with Insight Coaching, LLC, I thought you might want to know a few things about me.  I grew up in rural Nebraska, surrounded by extended family. I’ve helped raise 4 children: 2 biological sons and a biological daughter as well as a stepson.  I’ve faced the challenges of being a husband, dad, and a stepdad.  Over the last 15 to 20 years, I have been on a conscious journey to learn more about myself.  I was raised in the church, trained in the Shamanic Munay Ki Rites, am a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, have attended relationship classes by Terry Real, been fortunate to practice some Lakota traditions, have attended various virtual classes on growth, regularly read self-help books and work with my own coach.  Over this path I’ve learned what is important for me.  I am growing into who I want to become both for myself and for others.  Though each of us have our own life journey, it seems there are lessons that are universal for each of us.

The reason I decided to get qualified as a coach is because I enjoy helping others find their answers.  I’ve spent over 30 years working as a criminal defense attorney.  Repeatedly, I met good people who made a bad choice, landing them in the judicial system.  They like me, faced challenges and obstacles.  But they often did not have the support system in place to navigate their challenges.  In addition to defending them, I helped them develop their support systems.  So, in some ways I started my coaching career years ago.  

I offer clients support who risk seeing things from a new perspective.  Change can be challenging.  Fear often steps in and creates doubt.  Though you may realize things aren’t working, often it appears easier to maintain the status quo.  When you are ready to step out of your habitual patterns and explore your options, I am here to help at a pace that works for you.

If you are ready to examine your path in life, give me a call. I will help you find your direction.

Client Testimonials

I have known David Johnson for many years and we have spent a great deal of time together practicing yoga, mentoring youth at Rotary youth leadership camps, camping, kayaking, fossil hunting, and discussing every aspect of the human journey.  David does everything well and his pure heartfelt intentions are something we can all aspire to.  

Recently, he asked me if I would be one of his first clients in his quest to become a life coach (in actuality he has been a life coach for many years serving as a criminal defense lawyer).  I agreed and it was my honor to help him out with his latest goodwill endeavor. I assumed we knew each other so well it would not reveal much but at least it would be good practice for him.

I was mistaken.  Thirty years ago I founded and have since been president of a non-profit organization called IDEA WILD.  The organization has been extremely successful and we have been able to navigate hundreds of obstacles to maintain that success.  However, within two coaching sessions with David, we had revealed several issues that had always weighed heavy on me and been obstacles to future expansion.  They quickly became apparent to him, he guided me to the heart of them, and together we charted solutions.  These solutions made a space for change, initiated major shifts in mindset, and greatly reduced my stress.  

I am 100% sure, time spent with David, will manifest exponential returns in the life you are aspiring to. There is no time like the present to schedule your first session!

Prior to the coaching sessions I had with David I was well aware of the many positive traits that make him an outstanding person to interact with. He carries these traits into his coaching style. First and foremost, he is a great listener who understands how to follow up with effective questions. He was able to help me understand and focus on key ideas which produced immediate results in jump-starting my career.

In addition, his empathetic and positive nature is motivating, and he is supportive, respectful, and encouraging. However, he is adept at holding one accountable to moving forward with their plans and goals without being “pushy.” The bottom line:  if you’re looking for a coach that will treat you like an adult yet will still challenge you (in a very professional manner), David is ideal!
