In today's commoditized global marketplace, the last, true competitive advantage belongs to those that can fully evoke talent, passion and purpose from themselves and their teams.
Doubledare provides performance assessment, strategic planning, leadership development training, succession coaching, consulting, executive search and outplacement services for individuals and teams who are committed to playing big.
Our team of experienced, credentialed coaches and consultants, led by CEO, Scott Anderson, is passionate about realizing human potential, and supporting individuals and corporations committed to self-actualization in all areas of their lives.
Doubledare utilizes a wide array of assessment instruments and surveys (Predictive Index, Emergenetics, MBTI, Hogan, Gallup) to help individuals and teams leverage their strengths, manage their weaknesses, and more successfully seize opportunities for growth — in the context of accurate, objective metrics.
Great leaders know who they are. And they know how to inspire the best from themselves and their teams. For those assuming new leadership positions, or those committed to becoming better leaders, Doubledare’s Executive Performance Leadership Training programs focus on heightening self-awareness and building experience and confidence. We also help executives identify and “inoculate” themselves from predicted areas of weaknesses that may surface under stress.
Doubledare works with high-performance executives in large corporations and in small- to mid-sized businesses to develop long-term succession strategies and plans. Our work for smaller, closely-held firms involves developing leadership "bench-strength" to support growth and succession objectives. With assessments, consulting and coaching, we prepare the current management/ownership team as well as next-generation leaders by anticipating and resolving predictable transition problems before they occur.
Doubledare executive coaches help clients access and leverage the competitive advantage of individual and team talent, creativity and leadership abilities. By recognizing and enhancing the skills, talents and passions within individuals, we maximize performance and achievement. We help clients embrace and express their strengths to achieve personal goals, as well as contribute to the overall success of the company.
Scott Anderson is CEO of Doubledare (www.Doubledareyou.us), an executive coaching, consulting and search firm which dares entrepreneurs and executives to fully live their unique talent, passion and purpose.
Anderson coaches and consults with boards, corporations, leadership teams, and emerging leaders of organizations who are committed to high performance.
Since 1982, Anderson has managed closely held family businesses (and has the scars to prove it), launched four for-profit companies (including two world-class failures) and two not-for-profit companies (both still thriving). In 2014, he sold his interest in Anderson Partners, a marketing communications firm, back to the company.
Anderson received his undergraduate degree from Brown University, graduated summa cum laude from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a master’s degree in clinical counseling, and is a licensed mental health therapist. He is also certified as an executive coach by The Coaches Training Institute and the International Coach Federation.
In 2007, Anderson founded At Ease USA (www.AtEaseUSA.org), a research accelerator that develops leading edge PTSD treatment for military families. AEU is currently developing a treatment app, based results from Attention Bias Modification research, in partnership with Tel Aviv University, Creighton University and the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
Anderson published his first book, Playing Big, in 2013.

A few weeks ago, the Harvard Business Review featured a podcast with Basecamp CEO Jason Fried on the topic “Restoring Sanity to the Office.” This is a great “lunch listen” and definitely worth the 30-minute investment. If you prefer to read it, they’ve posted the transcript, too. There is so much here that I agree […] See More
Writing in the Wall Street Journal back in 2008, Samuel A. Culvert called for an end to the performance review. By late 2015, HBR published “Why More and More Companies Are Ditching Performance Ratings.” Last summer I looked at some arguments against the reviews as they are currently administered. Recently one of my clients told me […] See More
As many of my readers know, I really like to beat the “niche drum.” For the last six months or so, I’ve really thumped on about this because finding the right niche is one of the most important things a business can do. So it’s probably no surprise that I get excited whenever I see anything […] See More
