Dale Woodard, B.S., BC-HIS
Dale’s passion leverages his entrepreneurial successes, in-depth knowledge of the hearing healthcare field, leadership, consulting and coaching experience as a prominent executive development coach in the healthcare industry.
The focus of Dale’s work is to develop the Modern Audiology practices through maximizing the patient/professional relationship using techniques that bring both sides into a connection of mutual influence, vulnerability and discovery. In his previous private practice of 23 years, Dale found with radically different changes in thinking, the patient and professional both, find sustainable personal fulfillment. He challenges the historical way of doing things, creating new knowledge around patient centered care, and acting to implement those changes taking the professional from a level of losing their identity to their field, to coming alive as a vibrant healer who makes a difference with compassionate care for the patient.
