Dale is a leadership coach, speaker, poet and adjunct professor. His newest book, Poetry For The Leader Inside You: A Search And Rescue Mission For The Heart and Soul is now available.
For 25 years Dale Biron has coached an extraordinary number of successful leaders and teams. His mission is to support clients in both their work and personal lives… Using bold and powerful conversations, he is transforming how timeless questions, narratives and poems are experienced and used in new and practical ways by leaders and teams.
His TEDx speech features Dale uniquely incorporating poetry into his work as a coach. From one-on-one coaching of leaders and teams, to business conferences and organizational retreats, to university classes, Dale has worked in many venues.
Dale’s innovative methods of supporting leaders and teams with coaching, evidence-based instruments, story-telling, poetry and martial arts have attracted attention and earned him invitations to work with an array of leaders, teams and organizations, including: Moss Adams LLP, Exchange Bank, Community West Bank, Pomponio Ranch, McGuire Real Estate, Birkenstock USA, Lam Research, 3-Com Corporation, Bank of America, Dominican University, Goldsmith Seeds, La Tortilla Factory, Frank Howard Allen, Collins Electrical, Fisher Vineyards, Bank of Marin and Central Valley Builders.
Bucking tradition, Dale uses narrative poems in story-rich, entertaining and engaging ways that ignite the mind, unleash the imagination and touch the heart and soul. Dale has long observed how great stories and poems integrate and draw out the best of our intellectual and emotional selves. Such poems and stories have courageous, wholehearted conversations built right in, making them exceptional tools for leaders and teams who want to communicate better and therefore naturally get more accomplished together.
Dale has presented and taught at large and small venues throughout the west, including: TEDx Marin, national business conferences, The Herbst Theatre and Dominican University. He served on the board of the Marin Poetry Center and was past poetry editor for A Network for Grateful Living.
Growing up in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, under the careful watch of a New England bred Father who read voraciously, and a Southern born Mother who loved poetry, literature and Latin, Dale’s love for language was predestined. He is former Poetry Editor for A Network for Grateful Living and served on the Board of Directors of the Marin Poetry Center. Dale’s own book of poems, “Why We Do Our Daily Practice” was published in 2014.
Dale is available for leadership and team coaching assignments, events, conferences, retreats, keynotes and media interviews. He is active on Twitter and writes his own blog.
