About Bill

I work with new and emerging leaders who care about the people they lead.  They want to have an impact and make a difference.

Leadership development starts with believing in oneself.  You can have all the skills in the world, but if you don’t believe in yourself, none of it will matter. 

You will feel as if you're living the life of an imposter.

My practice offers both an inner and an outer game.  We can work with both, or only one.

My inner game addresses the confidence to be an effective leader. 

I will show you how to silence those internal chatters. 

The voices that say you are not good enough to lead. 

We will explore the underlying beliefs holding you back, and I will provide you with techniques to overcome these obstacles and have the outcome you desire. 

This is change work you will be able to take into other areas of your life, including relationships, money, and even health.

My outer game addresses the more functional aspects of your career.   

I will share with you the techniques I’ve mastered for time-management, developing accountability, conflict resolution, team development and industry branding.

My Coaching and Work Experience

    Some say a doctor makes the worst patient, and a teacher makes the worst student...and coaches make the worst clients! Fortunately, Bill guided me to insights into my coaching style, helped me craft my business model, and gave me the motivation I needed when I forgot my way. I've yet to meet a more caring, inspiring, insightful coach AND mentor. More importantly, Bill gave me the questions I should ask myself...rather than just creating a dependence on his wisdom, he gave me the keys to my own. Thank you, Bill, for being a great coach, mentor, and - above all - friend.

    Bill is top of his game when it comes to helping you clarify your thoughts and setting course for your life and/or business. Bill has helped me tremendously when it came to getting clarity on my business ideas, goals and execution plan. He always had fundamentally sound advice for me along with innovative ideas that were cutting edge and forward thinking. Bill helped me focus on the important/urgent, not the distractions. Thank you Bill for your guidance, thought provoking questions, mentorship, kindness and most of all your heart felt passion you had for my growth, both personal and business. I recommend Bill for anyone looking to focus their ideas and get on their own personal power path with a coach who knows his stuff and has a vested interest in you being your best. Thank you Bill!

    Working with Bill was absolutely fantastic. Our coaching sessions were an hour that I looked forward to every week. His own professional and leadership experience provided a great background for him to help me explore a new perspective in my own career development. But what's more, his natural enthusiasm made it impossible for me to leave our sessions in anything but a better and more energized mood than when we began. He makes it easy to talk about anything that's on your mind and provides just the right amount of encouragement and accountability to keep you moving forward towards your goals in a measurable way.

    As a coach Bill Benoist practices active listening skills and asks questions to clarify understanding of my thoughts. I am a random thinker and Bill is always able to keep up with me and focus on the important information I am sharing. He is a compassionate person and this quality is demonstrated through his coaching. He listens and asks insightful questions to really get down to the heart of the matter. As a technological guru, Bill offers added value to me - a small business owner challenged by WordPress. Bill's experience, knowledge and skills provide him with the tools needed to be an exceptional leadership coach.

    I have been coaching with Bill for almost a year now and have found his help and guidance invaluable. Bill has not only supported me through a challenging time but has been instrumental in boosting my self confidence and belief in myself. I am moving forward to a new career and building a business which i am passionate about and Bill has been there every step of the way. </span><span style="color: #c4c4c4; line-height: 1.5;">Whatever doubts i had, whatever issues i raised, Bill found a way to work with me to find the reasons beneath the problems and then take steps to break down those barriers. Bill has so much to offer in terms of work/life experience and he uses that to the advantage of his clients. I would highly recommend Bill as a Coach to anyone looking to make changes in their life and needing a professional, dynamic person to take the journey with them.
