Doing Business the Cowboy Way

For many, the American cowboy symbolizes hard work, honor, and adventure. For Dr. Dave Gobeille—rancher, successful businessman, and certified executive and business coach—the cowboy ideal provides not only a symbol and source of inspiration, but a model for honest, godly leadership.

Dave’s inner cowboy first emerged and thrived on a part-time basis while he built two multimillion-dollar orthodontic practices. With those under his belt, Dave has combined his business savvy with his ranching and cowboying experiences to become an executive coach. Now, he shares the valuable principles he learned along the way in Cattle, Crops, & Spurs. He blends a cowboy twang with educated finesse, encouraging readers to remember who holds the highest authority and to operate with great integrity—or, in cowboy speak, “don’t take what ain’t yours.”

Cowboys have freedom and duty, enthusiasm and honor, imperfections and the humility to recognize them. The same qualities that allow them to thrive in an often-harsh environment can help business leaders thrive with integrity and courage.

In Cattle, Crops, & Spurs, Dave draws principles from the Ten Commandments and the Cowboy Code and expands them with anecdotes from his ranching experience. The result will challenge leaders of all stripes, whether city folk or ranchers at heart, to transform their lives and the cultures of their businesses.

Author Bio

When Dr. Dave Gobeille took career tests growing up, they highlighted an affinity toward ranching or farming. Instead, Dave left his childhood Chicago suburbs to attend Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he received his BS before earning his doctorate of dental surgery from University of Illinois. It wasn’t until after he received his specialty certificate in orthodontics and his MS in oral biology from Loyola University that he finally moved west to Oregon. Once there, he started the first of two very successful orthodontic practices—and at the same time, his cowboy dream finally became a reality. Today, led by his passion for developing leaders and helping people be all they can be, Dave has combined his ranching experiences with his business savvy to become an executive coach.

Dave and Carolyn, his wife and forever sweetheart, live on a ranch Central Oregon, where they enjoy playing in the great outdoors with God’s creation surrounding them. They have two adult sons, Matthew and Todd.
