Economic Development Advisor for our existing & future Workforce in the Tampa Bay region 

As a  mentor , trainer and self proclaimed philanthropist , I have continued to use  the skills I gained during my forty years managing successful businesses to help our community make decisions today about what will happen tomorrow that are well thought out and workable.

Our community needs to focus on both offering new opportunities, and strengthening our existing manufacturing base that will automatically strengthen the  interdependent service sectors .  The Tampa Bay region has an amazing amount of potential but its existing assets need to be protected and new ones need to be developed.

The Leadership A Community  Needs

A true community leader  never requires a title or position it only requires the ability to influence others . Then their power as a leader  is retained only as long as  they  do the right thing and show they care about those they influence by helping them make the best decision  to optimize the communities resources . 

A Vision For The Future

Our Future has been under constant  change  as we are forced to adjust our plans to accommodate the new challenges we face on a regular basis. The only way we can optimize our chances of not just surviving  but thriving is  by being involved in our community as part of a team  .

Issues

Developing our workforce

we can not all be destined to be a lawyer or doctor ..fact is we need at least 30% of our community to be in manufacturing to create a economically healthy community. ironically that is the percentage of kentic learners we have in our school system that are naturally predisposed in manufacturing talent.

talent or preference assessment

The idea that only a select  few posses talent has never really been challenged . The fact is we are all talented  in something  but may not fully understand how we can use it. In today’s world if we want to help ourselves the best  way is to understand ourselves . While most of us think we do, it may not be as easy as it seems as we can not see ourselves unless we have a mirror . Check out the blog in our site an there   are a few links that may be able to help you that can prove to be that missing piece of your success puzzle.

Dangers of Political Partisanship in local governments

partisanship is a concept that is used to identify a preference  of a particular cause . When we use that preference outside the context it was meant for it creates a problem as outside the context  it Is for now controls the decision making process  in a non-relevant way .
National political party partisanship that was part of most cities original charter  has been compromised due to meddling on behalf of the political party because they see the local government  . While there are those that think that the ways justify the means in regards to politics they are woefully mistaken as that mentality has allowed many unjustified actions under the partisanship name in our local governments .

About Dave Outlaw

For those who may not know me I have provided some background information below so you can make an informed decision on my patterns if behavior 

My first attempt to serve my community was to run for the city council position of Seminole in 2016 . My experience in this endeavor was a learning curve in politics that came as quite a surprise . As a novice I made many mistakes and quickly learned the ropes . For the most part my newbie  fellow candidates and few other seasoned candidates were exceptionally friendly . Unfortunately only one  of the newbies were elected  and it was not me . Leaving me with the feeling that my intent to help my community was not as welcomed as I had thought . Shortly after the election I had an unexpected  set backs , a heart attack and a quadruple bypass that took a few years to recover from , and Then a bike accident that shattered the femur bone in my leg added another year of immobility and inactivity . The time I have spent idly  evaluating how I could have done a better job in campaigning and what tactics were needed left me with the decision to avoid this avenue for the time being and return at a time that the citizens felt they may need new blood .  Regardless of what others may the political non partisanship that was part of the city’s original charter  has been compromised . While there are those that think that the ways justify the means in regards to politics , in my opinion  they are woefully mistaken as that mentality has allowed many citizens to feel that they were ignored  under the partisanship game , even  if they were not. 

Mission & Values

 

My mission and values have always been interdependent with my decision making for my employees and my experience in business and our community  . The process improvement of Decision making has always been an experiential learning endeavor that has often produced less than what was intended . Over the years these experience  has produced a recognizable pattern that I have been able to use that it’s often called wisdom. Each lesson I learned as we journeyed together was enhanced by a concept called humbleness , that our best decisions were a collective collaboration of communications with all those that were involved that chose to voice their perspective. With out their help I am sure outcomes would have  been less than optimal . So my mission and value provide a way for you to get involved and help us making our future even brighter
