Highlighting Our January 2017 Sponsor: Bill Treasurer

We are elated to have the Bill Treasurer as our Lead Change Group sponsor for January 2017! Bill is the Chief Encouragement Officer (CEO) of Giant Leap Consulting, Inc. He has designed leadership and succession programs for emerging and experienced leaders for NASA, Saks Fifth Avenue, UBS Bank, Walsh Construction, Spanx, the Pittsburgh Pirates, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and many others.

Bill's Books Motivate and Inspire

This month, Bill will be releasing his latest book, A Leadership Kick in the Ass: How to Learn from Rough Landings, Blunders, and Missteps. This book covers how even the best leaders -- in fact, most of the best leaders -- start out as decidedly bad ones. And sooner or later they reach a moment of reckoning that Bill calls a leadership kick in the ass. When it happens, it feels like it's all over. But properly navigated, Bill shows how that kick can be a new leadership beginning. Based on his work with thousands of leaders, this book reveals how to turn those ego-bruising events into the kind of transformative experiences that mark the paths of great leaders. As Steve jobs famously said, "Getting fired was the best thing that ever happened to me."

This book is a survival guide, coach, and morale booster to help readers use that kick to more forward instead of fall down. Top leadership expert Ken Blanchard calls the book "a wake-up call for leaders at every level."

In the past two decades, thousands of executives across the globe have attended Bill’s keynotes and workshops. Benefiting from the concepts first introduced in Bill’s bestselling books, participants come away with stronger leadership skills, improved team performance, and more career backbone.

Previous speaking clients include, among others, Hugo Boss, Saks Fifth Avenue, CNN, The Home Depot, Fortune Magazine, and the National Science Foundation.
