Dale A. Hicks, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and an accomplished executive leader, who has maintained an independent practice in Psychology and high-level executive coaching for over three decades. Appointed by the governor, he also has served as vice chair of the Florida Board of Psychology.
His coaching work focuses on helping you become a more effective and versatile leader through self-knowledge. An effective and versatile leader continually adjusts their behavior to the circumstances and needs of organizational constituencies. Leadership engagement, personal mastery and versatility are highly correlated with organizational effectiveness. Productivity is the product of an engaged workforce and key to creating competitive advantage.
Many executives hold beliefs and mental models learned throughout their lives that subtly undermine their effectiveness as leaders. These models are often tacit but still have a negative effect on the organization through resulting behaviors, interactions and decisions. Dr. Hicks is an expert on 360° assessments and personality measures that inform leadership coaching sessions with top tier executives.
Employee turnover, repetitive hiring for the same position, training and “on boarding” new employees is an expensive and time-consuming task. Dr. Hicks can help your company match job candidates and current employees with job responsibilities, organizational culture and the work environment. He also provides consultation and interventions designed to enhance organizational functioning at times of turmoil or transformation.
