As a math and computer science guy, Bill discovered the power of managing emotions while he was working in the technology industry. Bill is very honest about the struggles he had early in his career as a leader. He was so impressed by the Institute for Health and Human Potential [IHHP]’s brain science based approach to Emotional Intelligence, and even more so by its practical applications, that he became a partner in the company.
Currently at IHHP, Bill worked as Vice President at a computer software firm with responsibility for sales, consulting and marketing. He led the company from $2 million sales and a number 10 ranking in their field to $75 million and the #1 slot.
With 25 years of real-world business experience as a senior leader, leadership coach and motivational speaker, Bill Benjamin knows what it takes to succeed in high-pressure environments, and his thoughts on this have been sought out by groups including the U.S. Army, NASA, Intel, Marriott, Coca-Cola and Goldman Sachs, amongst many others.
Bill’s experience in technology and sales gives real-world experience in the types of challenges that organizations face today. His analytical background in math and computer science drives him to take a practical and scientific approach to helping people understand how the brain responds under knowledge of the subject matter and ability to explain scientific material in understandable and frankly pressure, and how that can help increase leadership and performance.
Bill has an authentic approach that resonates with the audience and especially with those that might be typically resistant to the important relationship between ‘soft-skills’ and exceptional leadership. A natural storyteller, he balances anecdotes with science and research to engage all types of participants. When he is not speaking, Bill spends time working with senior leaders and their teams at Fortune 500 companies helping them overcome the barriers that often hold them back from reaching their full potential.
Bill loves to write and contributed to the New York Times and Amazon bestselling book Performing Under Pressure, co-authored by IHHP’s JP Pawliw-Fry and noted psychologist Hendrie Weisinger. He is a regular contributor to CEO magazine, Training Magazine as well as other leadership publications.
Bill is originally from Canada and moved to New York City in the nineties. He now calls Chicago home and it is here you will find him indulging in his other passions – his family, scotch, and cycling.
