Bill Munn Show Notes

In 2000 Bill Munn was soaring financially. But he was not focused on what he was best at. So Bill turned his business around and he lost of lot of clients and a lot of savings. Just before he got to the brink things started taking off. Listen to Bill share his story of how he got over this hump.

However far back you go, you’ll find Bill Munn’s roots firmly planted beside a small lake in Northern Michigan. It was there that his grandfather and first true mentor long ago discovered a nature-rich escape—one that was remote, largely untouched, and perfectly suited to the late visionary’s dream of a getaway where generations of extended family members would connect and build memories for years to come.

Bill has always been called to this place: as a young boy, forging new paths to troublemaking alongside the cousins who became his most treasured friends and confidants; as a young man, working his tail off every night and day of the summer season in order to remain on the shores of that beloved lake; as a young father, working even harder as an oft-travelling executive, determined that his wife and 3 daughters could spend every day of their summers in that place.

Today, as a veteran management coach with his own independent practice, that lake is no longer a retreat he visits and longs for, but the place he calls home.

Incidentally, it’s also helped to inspire the framework for a leadership and personal-growth program that has become part of his legacy: the power-alley attributes concept. As Bill helped clients identify and leverage inherent strengths—or attributes—in themselves and others within their organizations, he found that the natural world reflected one of his most powerful leadership philosophies.

Just as an eagle is built for soaring while the elegant loon is designed for deep diving, so too does each human being have powerful and unique attributes that are key to personal success in business, leadership, and life—as well as team success.

For over 26 years, Bill has supported hundreds of corporate leaders and their teams as a management-coach. Being a former top-level executive of a Dow 30 and Fortune 500 company, Bill brings real-world experience to his seminars, training programs, and one-on-one coaching, supporting clients with practical wisdom, real-world action tools, and unbiased insight.

Bill is the bestselling author of two books, including Why Make Eagles Swim?: Embracing Natural Strengths in Leadership and Life and Lead or Be Led: A Guide for Intentional Living.

Bill and his wife, Lindy, split their time between Ohio and beautiful northern Michigan, where they often welcome their three daughters, three sons-in-law, and ten grandchildren.
