As founder of The Innovators' Lab®, an organization devoted to developing and testing new ideas in management and marketing, Dale has done idea generation with dozens of organizations, including Honeywell, General Dynamics, Caterpillar, and NASA.
His consulting work includes educational programs for Certified Innovation Mentors, and his work on creating a culture of innovation yielded a patent-pending new advance on brainstorming called BrainTouring™.
Dale has been researching achievers since his student days at Arizona State and Stanford University's Graduate School of Business. His early work prompted a government publication to call him a "guru" to White House staffers, and since then, his books have developed a following worldwide, especially in Japan.
In addition to co-writing with J.T. O'Donnell the country's leading career newspaper column, "J.T. & Dale Talk Jobs," for many years Dale wrote the syndicated newspaper column "The Corporate Curmudgeon" and has written seven previous books, including his most popular book, The Gifted Boss.
