Bill Benjamin is arguably one of the foremost thought leaders on leadership, coaching and emotional intelligence in N. America. His organization, the Institute for Health and Human Potential (IHHP) does amazing work for their clients throughout the world. EcSELL has worked with Bill and his partner, Dr. J.P. Pawliw-Fry, on several occasions and will continue to do so, for their work is based on science, best practice and is delivered with passion-they are not a bunch of fist pumpers with no substance to what they preach.
I mention the above to make a point about leadership and coaching. While Bill at IHHP is clearly educated and highly effective in the art, science and delivery of leadership and coaching, he is formally taking part in programs to enhance his personal skills as a leader and coach. Bill never seems to quench his thirst for learning, for he understands his team at IHHP, as well as their customers, will only learn and grow as much as his ability to lead and coach them. Poor leaders and coaches limit the development and productivity of their teams, while the antithesis is true of great leaders and coaches.
