Dale Karren

For Dale its about results. The quantifiable kind. He’ll draw the best thinking and ideas from the people within an organization to produce practical, yet powerful strategic outcomes. Dale will ask the right questions at the right time. You can’t escape a session without reaching consensus and, above all, clarity. Which is why he particularly loves working one-on-one with Executives—helping them identify their unique leadership imprint. “Watching them change their own lives, and the lives of those they lead,” he says, “that is what makes this work so much fun.”


Dale is the ultimate strategist and loves coaching executives and teams on his three areas of passion: Business Strategy, Executive Leadership, and Performance Improvement. Over many years of experience, Dale recognized that performance improvement often requires culture change. So he developed exceptional tools and methods that are simple to understand and easy to use. “It’s about reshaping cultures,” he says, “by designing more favorable environments that foster success.”
