Dalar International Consultancy, Inc is a values-led leadership development and organizational development consulting firm. Dalar has been in business since 1990. Head office is in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA with a branch office in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.
Thousands of individuals around the world have received consulting, coaching, mentoring and training with us. They in turn benefited their organizations and their clients. Thousands of organizations are experiencing sustainable exceptional performance as a result of learning and working with our team, and with the consultants in our professional network.
Our business model is one of keeping our own consultancy small while being able to tap into the services of our Co-operation Partners. For very large international projects, we also involve our professional network around the world. This business model allows us to create project teams that best serve our clients in achieving their business and development goals.. We can thus be of service to businesses and organizations of any size, and in any geographic location. We have also become exceptionally skillful at being of service to our clients in the online environment, an option that is particularly useful when representatives of our client organization are in multiple geographic locations.
Our public offering training is often organized and co-facilitated with co-operation partners around the world. Among the many benefits of this approach, it is important to us to have co-operation partners who will assist our students to be supported locally in the implementation of their learning.
The principals of Dalar, Birgitt Williams and Ward Williams, have consulted with leaders and organizations for over thirty years. Dalar has been in the business of developing leaders and their organizations since 1990. In 1999 Birgitt and Ward developed their partnership. This merging of Birgitt and Ward’s combined years of business and personal consulting experiences led to the development of the Genuine Contact™ program, a holistic approach to finding solutions based on their research of what worked in changing organizational habits, patterns, and attitudes towards improved performance and meaningful and sustainable positive results.
Birgitt Williams, President of Dalar, authored The Genuine Contact Way: Nourishing a Culture of Leadership as a guide to leadership development.
Rachel Bolton has been a part of the Dalar team since 1998. First working with us as our production manager, she undertook training in the Genuine Contact program and was authorized as a Genuine Contact Trainer in 2002. After working alongside and being mentored by Birgitt and Ward, Rachel formally joined our team as a consultant and coach with Dalar. She now leads our work with start-ups and small businesses.
Our purpose is to develop leaders and leadership in organizations, engaging people in closing the gap between potential and outcomes.
We value nourishing a culture of leadership so that individuals and organizations thrive, accomplishing their goals. We value the new leadership paradigm of ‘leading so people will lead’, resulting in great social, environmental, and economic good.
Our vision and commitment is to a brighter future for our children and future generations through working to establish a culture of leadership in today’s individuals, families, teams, communities, governments, businesses and organizations of all kinds.
