Bill Benjamin’s Key Accomplishments Include. . . 
Bill has a rare perspective – he has advanced degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science and has 25 years of real-world business experience as a senior leader. Bill is very authentic about the fact that he struggled early in his career as a leader when he was under pressure. He shares how he has been able to apply the very same techniques he teaches to become a better leader (and husband and father) himself.

In addition to using his background in sales to motivate and inspire audiences, Bill leverages his Mathematics and technical background to take a practical and scientific approach to helping people understand how the brain responds under pressure, and how that can help increase leadership and performance.

Why Bill Benjamin

The combination of Bill’s practical nature and scientific approach to leadership make him a hit with analytical audiences. His high energy level and enthusiasm has resulted in a successful track record with discerning audiences that include surgeons, U.S Marines and NASA engineers.

Bill is a partner at the Institute for Health and Human Potential (IHHP), a successful international research and training company, named one of the “Fastest Growing Companies” in the “Fast 100” ranking in PROFIT Magazine.

Bill also 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.

More About Bill Benjamin. . .
Bill Benjamin has a degree in Mathematics with a major in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo in Canada. In addition to leveraging his background in sales to motivate and inspire more extroverted groups (e.g. sales and marketing), Bill’s Mathematics degree and technical background give him credibility and shared experience when he speaks to groups that are more analytical in nature (Financial, IT, Engineering, etc).

Emotional Intelligence Training Programs

IHHP started developing its foundational Emotional Intelligence training program 15 years ago to provide people with the ability to understand and manage their own emotions, and connect with and influence the emotions of others. Emotional Intelligence is based on brain science and the physiology of how human beings respond and behave when there is tension and pressure. Those who become more aware of and manage their own and others’ emotions are able to think more clearly under pressure and act more skillfully during adversity, in challenging situations and in difficult relationships. Research shows that emotionally intelligent leaders drive:

  • Higher employee engagement and commitment
  • Increased productivity
  • Better collaboration and teamwork
  • Greater innovation

Leadership Training Courses

All of IHHP’s leadership training courses have been designed to create a rich and insightful learning experience that increases the self-awareness of the participants in the program. Developing these powerful learning programs lies in IHHP’s ability to create a ‘container of safety and inspiration’ so that the work that needs to be done gets done. The following methods are used across all of our leadership training programs:

  • Web-based assessment at the individual and team levels (optional)
  • Facilitator-led discussion of key concepts, either in-class or virtually
  • Small breakout groups to practice skills and strategies
  • Experiential exercises to increase solidification of concepts
  • Grounded experience through customized scenarios and business cases
  • Participant coaching
  • Follow-up group and one-on-one coaching
  • Follow-up assessment and practice through an interactive sustainment program
