Who We Are and Our Ambition 

High Quality Leadership® is a company brimming with expertise, yet we’re also aware that in this early stage, many may not be familiar with us. We are dedicated to optimizing organizational performance. Our passion is to promote cultural improvement by awakening the innate leadership potential present in every individual. We demonstrate the leadership qualities essential in developing and guiding teams toward true engagement, financial growth and efficiency.

Revisiting Our Mission 

The High Quality Leadership® mission is to achieve greater results for our client companies by leading a transformation to a High Quality Organization®. This is accomplished through proprietary and empirically-validated analytical and technical tools that strengthen employee engagement (using our app), talent acquisition, leadership development and organizational structure.

Heart Of Our Company:

Delivery of this mission starts with our leadership. This approach is meticulously crafted by our founders, each with decades of experience in various business and academic roles, including entrepreneurship and leading thriving companies. What sets them apart is not just their professional success but their unwavering dedication to lifelong learning and building teams. They have dedicated their educational and professional lives to excelling in their respective fields and have earned respect as leaders, educators, and role models.


David Sherwood Hill, Ph.D., one of the founders of High Quality Leadership®, is the mastermind behind the company’s theory. After completing his bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX, David embarked on a journey that led him through various Fortune 500 companies, privately-owned enterprises, and two decades of entrepreneurial endeavors, successfully navigating multiple startup ventures.

He firmly upholds the belief that leadership and personal interaction between leaders and followers are the crux of all endeavors. His academic journey culminated in a Ph.D. in Organization and Leadership Sciences from Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas.

Now, let’s turn our attention to our other founder, Jared:
