For many years Dale wrote the syndicated newspaper column "The Corporate Curmudgeon" and now co-authors with J.T. O'Donnell the country's leading column on careers.
He has also authored seven non-fiction books on leadership and innovation. His early work prompted a government publication to name him a "guru" to White House staffers, and since then, his business books have developed a worldwide following, most notably in Japan.
Early in his career, Dale worked for two major corporations and two consulting firms. He now works as an innovation consultant as founder of The Innovators' Lab®.
He is married, with three children, is a recent convert to Catholicism, a hiker and tennis player, and when asked in an interview to name his three best traits, he replied, "an open mind, a soft heart, and excellent calf muscles." Two of those three are apparent in his writing. He lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
This is his first novel.
