"The DCRP Team thoroughly enjoyed our strategic planning session. We were engaged to learn more about ourselves, each other and how our unique passions will drive our mission and vision into the future. Through your leadership, we revealed our accomplishments, challenges, personal and agency goals just to name a few. These immeasurable tools will allow us to focus on effective transitioning, prosperous growth and stay on the proactive front of trending changes within our organization and community. We thank Dale Smith, (Smith Management Training and Consulting) for your leadership, dedication and support."
Paul Moore, Director
Davie County Parks and Recreation Department

"I hired Smith Management Training and Consulting Services to conduct a leadership retreat focused on change management. It was the best decision I've made in a long time. Dale Smith guided our group to understand each other's roles and perspectives, establish an organizational culture, and most importantly how we communicate and process change individually. We now have a much greater understanding of each other individually and therefore the entire leadership team. Dale Smith excelled in making each us feel comfortable as she was engaging, informative, and relatable to each person."
Ernie Pages, Director
Kernersville Parks and Recreation

"Dale led us through an energizing and enlightening day and a half of team-building starting with the MBTI profile and our results. The way Dale taught our team about our differences and how we could use those to our benefit was truly enlightening and fun. We were able to reach a deeper level of understanding about the different ways we all work and how to work with each other even though we are all very different people with different methods of achieving our goals.
Dale is a very motivating and engaging trainer, and I would encourage anybody who feels like their team needs some "bringing together" to reach out to her for some help. She was prepared and very professional. It was fun and we learned a lot about ourselves and each other."

How Did Coaching Support You?

""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."

Indian Trail Recreation and Park Department.

"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."

"Thank you for your time and efforts over the past 4 months. I really appreciate the way you worked with us and pushed us to stretch our thinking. Your willingness to go above and beyond made a difference in shaping a successful outcome."

Human Resources Director, Town of Garner.

"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."
