My name is Dale
connecteddale is my business and I work mostly alone.
I work with business executives helping them to think strategically about the future of their business and their lives.
Connection (in connecteddale) relates to making new connections, learning, creating new insights and joining the dots in new and innovative ways.
I work with individuals (executive coaching) and with groups (team facilitation at senior and executive levels)
This description from Gallup Strengthsfinder about connectedness (my #1 strength) may be useful to understand how I look at the world:
Things happen for a reason.You are sure of it.You are sure of it because in your soul you know that we are all connected.Yes, we are individuals, responsible for our own judgments and in possession of our own free will, but nonetheless we are part of something larger. Some may call it the collective unconscious. Others may label it spirit or life force. But what- ever your word of choice, you gain confidence from knowing that we are not isolated from one another or from the earth and the life on it.This feeling of Connectedness implies certain responsibilities. If we are all part of a larger picture, then we must not harm others because we will be harming ourselves. We must not exploit because we will be exploiting ourselves. Your awareness of these responsibilities creates your value system.You are considerate, caring, and accepting. Certain of the unity of humankind, you are a bridge builder for people of different cultures. Sensitive to the invisible hand, you can give others comfort that there
is a purpose beyond our humdrum lives.The exact articles of your faith will depend on your upbringing and your culture, but your faith is strong. It sustains you and your close friends in the face of life’s mysteries.
My logo is an extension of myself.
It must represent me and the work that I do.
