More about Grant Dale:

Grant Dale was a highly regarded former Naval Commander with 29 years of service. His background includes warship command, strategic-level organisational development, operations management and administration, development and delivery of training.

When Grant Dale assumed command of the warship HMAS Westralia he was faced with an unusual challenge. The ship had developed a culture of fear and an expectation of failure, following the tragic fire of 1998.

Focusing on what could be achieved rather that what couldn’t, Grant set about improving the ship’s performance through its systems, structures, leadership and culture.

Adopting a values-based approach to leadership, he engaged people to achieve higher levels of performance than they thought possible.

Within eighteen months, the culture, efficiency and effectiveness of the ship had been transformed into that of a successful fleet asset with a winning culture and excellent performance of duties.

Using his experience in the Defence Force, Grant works as a business consultant and corporate speaker.
