Author/motivational speaker/Verndale native David Horsager stopped by Wadena-Deer Creek High School last weekend to donate his new book, "The Trust Edge," to the high school's library.

"We appreciate Mr. Horsager thinking of us here at WDC," said Loni Niles, WDC library media specialist. "He was kind enough to donate two books to our library, one for general circulation and the other for placement in our professional collection. Both students and staff can benefit from his writings."

Horsager, who resides in Minneapolis, was in Wadena last weekend for deer hunting. He is the son of Clarence and Mary Horsager of Verndale, who have connections to WDC School. Clarence taught agriculture at Wadena High School from 1963 to 1971.

The Horsagers are quite proud of their son's new book.

"Yes, we are very proud of him," said Clarence. "[David] spent a lot of time researching his book. We think people will find the book very valuable."

In his book, "The Trust Edge," Horsager shares the secrets of using trust to impact the bottom line.

"The single uniqueness of the greatest leaders and organizations of all time is trust," said David Horsager. "I believe people who read my book will embrace this mindset."

Combining humor, illusions, and memorable stories with research and insight, Horsager sheds light on the confusion and misconceptions surrounding the cornerstone of personal and professional success. He offers steps that readers can incorporate into their own lives.

As a professional speaker, Horsager delivers presentations around the world, with audiences ranging from Fortune 500 executives to the armed forces and professional sports teams. According to his Web site,, Horsager has built his reputation on two things: "being easy to work with and delivering engaging, high-energy speeches."

When he's not speaking or writing, Horsager continues to research and consult through Horsager Leadership Studio. He also serves as an adjunct professor of Organizational Leadership for Bethel University's graduate program. He lives in Minneapolis with his wife, Lisa, and their four children.
