Hello, and welcome to the Leadership Done Right podcast, Episode 22: How To Recognize And Change Behavior For The Best Outcome with Patrick Casanova.
Get to Know Patrick
Our guest today is originally from Tucson, Arizona. As a young man he dabbled in filmmaking and graphic art. It wasn’t until later, in his career at Southwest Gas, that he saw Organizational Development as the route he wanted to pursue. He had already acquired a degree in Psychology and went on to accomplish a Masters of Science in Leadership. At that time with Southwest Gas he held a PHR (Professional in Human Resources) from the Society for Human Resource Management.
The Jump into Organizational Development
His first couple of years in OD was spent traveling around the country acquiring certifications. He received certifications to train everything from typological tools, such as Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, to Situational Leadership, Kepner-Tregoe and half a dozen Franklin Covey courses and more. Next week, he will be on to his 19th certification in Change Management with Prosci.
Patrick took early retirement from Southwest Gas to accomplish life goals. He lived for a short while in the South of France and continues to explore various countries that fascinate him. After three years away, Southwest Gas called to enlist him as a consultant. He currently assists the Organizational Development Department and the Project Management Office.
How I met Patrick
I had the privilege of attending several of his classes and have learned a lot from him about leadership and organizational development. He really knows his stuff! Our guest today is Patrick Casanova. Patrick, welcome to the Leadership Done Right Podcast.
How To Recognize And Change Behavior For The Best Outcome

For example, DiCS explains, “D-Direct, I-Cheerleader, S-supportive, C-Fact focused.” Coming up in leadership I realized I had to change behavior. Being an abstract thinker and working with a lot of engineers that are more of your C’s, I had to change behavior to better relate to people. Check out How to Change With The Right Mindset.
