"You were created to be great and I'm focused on helping you live a unique life of greatness."
Dale's mission is to help people align their goals with their core values so that they don't eventually look up and realize that despite their achievements, they are living a life that feels unfulfilling and unhappy. He is helping people realize their full potential, take action and live a life of purpose, passion and fulfillment. Not the life people accept. The unique life that each person was designed to live.
After a tragic accident, Dale realized that life is fragile and tomorrow is never promised. You can spend your life planning to live your dream life or you can live it every day!
With a new focus and level of intensity, Dale began a "second life" full of intention and purpose.
Dale is most fulfilled when he is speaking, training and coaching people. In short, he is living his goals, purpose and passions and he loves helping other people experience the same joy!
Dale envisions a world where people are so happy living intentional lives of purpose and passion that they no longer have time to dwell in negativity, hurt or fear. As a result, we'll live in a healed world where every single person loves, values and sees the potential in every single person.
As a certified Speaker, Trainer and Coach with the John Maxwell Team, Dale has trained professional and student leaders from Fortune 500 Companies to the largest student run organization in the world.
Dale has a history of exemplifying leadership and excellence at every level of his academic and professional career.
Today, he is blessed to be able to use the lessons he learned through decades of leadership, successful goal setting, training, obstacles and personal loss to motivate and equip people to live their best lives right now!
