  • "Trying to describe Bill in only a few sentences is very difficult for me. There simply are not enough words to state how truly passionate, caring, and inspiring he is to anyone who crosses his path. There is no better person to really help you achieve your goals and to get the most out of life than Bill!"
    - C. Harris, B.S., Accounting, Douglasville, PA

Owsiany, 8th grade student and Tournament Softball Player, Chichester, PA

" - K. Gordy, New Castle, DE

          As a professional coach, I focus on Human Development and, in particular, the building of Personal Mastery, resulting in extraordinary outcomes for individuals, leaders, and teams.  Values drive behavior (Hartman, 1951) toward need satisfaction (Maslow, 1947; Bandura, 1977).  By understanding an individual’s intrinsic motivation as well as the extrinsic processes which he values and integrates internally, a term called autonomous motivation (Deci & Ryan, 1977), we can therefore provide predictability in behavior.  Through self-awareness, we can learn to recognize the behavior patterns and defense mechanisms in ourselves that lead us down the path to struggle and strife.  Once we recognize these patterns and our triggers, we can learn and develop strategies to help us make better choices with our behavior (self-mastery), achieve sound judgment even while under duress and stress, and begin to experience greater efficiency and performance in the workplace.  These are key components of emotional intelligence (Goleman, Boyatzis, & McKee, 2002) and systems thinking (Senge, 1990, 2006) which are essential to leadership and personal development, but perhaps more importantly, these processes and strategies can be learned and developed through the coaching process.

          Understanding the full scope of one's traits, talents, attitude, affect, social drives, and values also enhances our knowledge of the type of culture, roles, tasks, and techniques along with their learning style, communication style, and other intangibles an individual brings to an organization in addition to their resume (i.e. education, knowledge, skills, abilities, and experiences) that an individual needs in order to thrive.  These are the universal keys to successful leadership, personal development, emotional resilience as well as organizational productivity and sustainability.  But it is simply the starting point of the insight and services The 415 Group can provide you and your team/organization.

        Imagine the benefits your organization would reap if it could strategically hire candidates based on their talents, and then help them leverage those talents to perform with strength.  Motivation and engagement levels would soar.  Turnover and attrition would be minimized.  Associates would eagerly come to work each day if given the opportunity to do what they do best, and their innovation and enthusiasm would fuel productivity and drive profits organically (Gallup, 2008).
