About the Author
Before becoming a professional speaker, David Rendall was a leadership professor, stand-up comedian, and manager for nonprofits that provided employment for people with disabilities. David has a doctor of management degree in organizational leadership and is the thought leader on harnessing weaknesses to leverage the unique potential of individuals and organizations. He has spoken to audiences on every inhabited continent with clients such as the United States Air Force and the Australian Government, as well as companies in the Fortune 500 like AT&T, State Farm, Ralph Lauren and GlaxoSmithKline. As a freak, David also uses his hyperactivity to compete in marathons, ultramarathons, and triathlons. He lives in North Carolina with his wife and three daughters.

Three years later I have applied the Freak Factor dozens of consulting projects - from sustainable investments of state oil revenues in Azerbaijan to helping non-profit organizations in Israel.
I am now starting a business training program for immigrant entrepreneurs in Jerusalem, Israel. Every week I meet with talented people who have beet told over and over again that they need to suppress their uniqueness and fit into the local labor market. Talented people, often with advanced degrees and great experience are told to be happy with work that does not fit their talents so they can be "normal". Many people I meet reject the Freak Factor, telling me that it is rebellious. The ones who do give it a shot come back loving it. Thank you David.
You have special skills, abilities and talents that your organization claims to prize but doesn't always allow you the freedom to shine. You fail at certain things along the way and feel like a failure because you are not good at everything. Rendall tells us to STOP trying to be great at the things we don't like and don't have a talent for. Focus that energy toward being exceptional at your key strengths.
We are all freaks (some more than others). Your 'freakiness' makes you special and we need you to let your freak out!
