What People Are Saying

I’ve known Dr. Cornelius at little over a year and have received coaching from him on professional and Agile practices.  Dr. Cornelius is a great mentor and teacher; he listens actively and embodies a coaching mindset.  Dr. Cornelius is also good at helping facilitate growth for individuals as well as a group.  I along with one of my peers Chris Shipman were nominated to be Product Owners for a new workstream.  He was able to help guide and mentor us to effectively lead the team and really helped both Chris and I grow in this new role.  He is an expert in his field, and I felt he did a great job of building trust and confidence with both Chris and I, as well as the team. -- Heyder, VP Global Infrastructure Services, ITS

Dr. Dave has played an instrumental role in preparing our teams for PI planning by helping us prepare epics and features for PI planning.  He conducted value stream mapping activities with our business team that resulted in the definition of the product Manager roles based on the organization design.  Dr. Dave’s training style is very interactive and open.  He led Scrum, SAFE for teams, and product Owner session both face-to-face and in a virtual setting.   As COVID changed the landscape, he was quickly able to adapt breakout sessions and team collaborations activities to accommodate a virtual environment.  His servant leadership approach has helped to change how our team delivers value to our customers and internal stakeholders.  -- Terrance, Director Services Solutions & Program Management

Ubuntu Living Learning Cards

The goal of the game: The Ubuntu Living game aims to help players improve their compassion, communication, and collaboration skills by having them tell stories about their own experiences with these qualities. Players can learn to be more empathetic, understanding, and supportive of others by playing the game. They can also learn to communicate effectively and work together towards common goals. For example, players could tell stories about times when they have overcome challenges through teamwork and collaboration. This could help them develop a belief in their ability to overcome adversity and achieve their goals. The Ubuntu Living game concepts also increase resilience to deliver value personally and for communities and organizations.

The game’s focus on communal interdependence, empathy, and respect is well-aligned with the Ubuntu philosophy. Ubuntu is a Bantu word that means “I am because you are.” It is a philosophy that emphasizes the interconnectedness of all people and the importance of treating others with compassion and respect.

The Ubuntu Living game is a valuable tool for anyone who wants to improve their personal and professional skills. It is a fun and engaging way to learn about compassion, communication, and collaboration and to apply these skills in real-world situations.


Storytelling is one of the most powerful forms of communications.  Dr. Dave's style is interactive and believes learning requires participation.
