Dale Smith

Smith Management Training and Consulting Services

Smith Management Training and Consulting Services' mission is to help individuals and teams reach their common goals and develop strong relationships while doing it.

 Dale Smith, CEO, with 30+ years of experience in Organizational Management, Team Building and Strategic Thinking is now solely focused on helping teams and individuals improve. Her leadership principles are Passion, Focus, Creativity and Vision. Providing an excellent client experience and treating each client with care and respect is a top priority.

Our business is Client Focused and Results Oriented with the goal of developing sustained client relationships.


I believe that Smith Management is different because of the vast experience we bring to the table.  I have worked on every level within municipal government from front line supervision to Director and now I am the owner of a small business. I have worked very hard to develop training and coaching skills that compliment that experience.  I understand the challenges that occur with managing and developing people and know that there is no "silver bullet".  However, there are strong, consistent and effective tools that can help leaders improve and we can assist with that.

"Dale always provided an open, non-judgmental atmosphere to where I was always comfortable to express how I truly felt. She helped change my approach to challenges through open discussions and asking the difficult questions that one tends to avoid answering."

"Even though I've been through a rigorous Executive MBA program at a leading university, one-on-one coaching focused on me was an entirely new experience. Dale's excellent coaching provided me with objective and unbiased support and guidance tailored to both my organizational context and individual professional development. I was able to concurrently receive and benefit from both constructive feedback and professional encouragement."

"When I first started I questioned if I was in the right field of work or did I need to start all over again. After my sessions with Dale, I was given the confidence and a clear understanding of how to accomplish and gain the skills I need to grow in my field, not only as an employee but as a person."
