Dale Condit spent nearly 24 years in the United States Air Force, retiring as a Colonel. During his service, he worked in research, advanced technology, education, and program management. After retiring from the Air Force, Condit went on to serve as president of Leadership 1st, Inc., providing consulting and executive mentoring in leadership, teamwork development, and program management.
