Meet The Team
Dale Walls, Founder
Dale has been on a life-long path in leadership and high-performance. Following an honorable U.S. Marine Corps enlistment, he returned his small-town home where he founded an IT Service Company (Corsica Technologies) that grew to be one of the best in class in the United States. After nearly two decades of growing Corsica to eight-figure revenues and making multiple acquisitions, Dale sold the company and founded Lions Guide. He now spends his days fulfilling his passion to help other business-owners learn high-performance, business development, and leadership skills to apply in their lives so they might achieve their own personal and professional goals.

During that time, he demonstrated superior leadership in numerous communities, leading high-performing teams on worldwide deployments to combat zones and disaster areas during humanitarian and rescue operations. He has a passion for leadership and teaching. Raised by teachers, his gift of being able to relate and help people develop the leader in themselves and their teams is his passion.
