Q&A with the Phenomenal Author Keysha Dale!

  • Posted on Jun 9, 2019

Focused, goal-driven, and always learning, Keysha Dale actively pursues her success while assisting other women to fast-track their own. Her willingness to be mentored and to mentor others has catapulted her success in the health services profession. The healthcare executive does so much more than play her role at work, she actively seeks ways to improve the profession through service. Dale is the District of Columbia (DC) Long-Term Care Administration Board Chairperson and the National Association of Long-Term Administrator Board (NAB) State Governance and Regulatory Forum Chair.

Keysha’s path to success is paved with what could be perceived as personal failures. In her book, Rock Bottom Success, Dale admits that early in her career she often reacted with emotions and impulsive behavior. Every failure can be a lesson, if you pay attention. She learned the hard way to keep a cool head and to be proactive about her responsibilities to herself, her employer, her team and the people she served. Every lesson left Keysha with pearls of wisdom that she employs to maintain and continuously achieve success. No grit. No pearl.

When Keysha is not blazing trails in the healthcare arena, she mentors up and coming professional women. As a highly sought-after speaker, Dale uses her book to share pearls of wisdom to audiences throughout the United States. At home in the Washington, DC area, Keysha enjoys spending time with her family and friends.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet one of my dearest friends and confidants, the phenomenal for so many unique reasons, Author Keysha Dale! I am truly inspired by Keysha. Witnessing her consistently blossom in all areas, while encouraging and mentoring others is absolutely admirable. Being in Keysha’s presence without a doubt is a blessing.

1. Rock Bottom Success is a spectacular read full of inspiration and pearls of wisdom. Where did the idea to author your book come from?

This is a great question! Well back in 2007 I did the unthinkable and resigned from my job prematurely and experienced my Rock Bottom moment; I vowed at that time that I would write a book to assist other’s and making the same mistake that I did and also provide them with Pearls of Wisdom while working in corporate America.

2. How do you balance life as a wife, mom, healthcare executive, author, transformational speaker, in addition to various other ventures?

To always focus on God and he will provide you HOPE and STRENGTH to endure.
