Bill W**

I'm a consulting-educator with expertise in strategic foresight. I have over 55 years of experience spanning four separate careers: military (USMC enlisted and officer), engineering, consulting, and education. I offer hybrid strategy coaching offerings for middle managers and emerging leaders.

I founded MindPrep Resource Center to help mid-level leaders develop and improve their strategic foresight and develop pragmatic plans. I do this through webinars, workshops, coaching and writing (multiple books plus regular newsletters).

My work focuses on the four basic responsibilities of any leader. Namely, they need to:
• Sense changes in their larger environment.
• Make sense of these changes.
• Decide on a course of action.
• Act and learn.
These responsibilities form the phases of a cycle that has to be run fast enough to keep the leader and the company relevant in a changing environment.

The following industries have been served: aerospace, apparel, automotive, banking, beverage, building materials, chemicals, computers / office equipment, education, engineering / construction, food, financial services, general merchandisers, health care, industrial technology, insurance, metal products, motor vehicles and parts, pharmaceuticals, printing, professional services, restaurants, and retail.

My inspiring life lessons: Before I shipped out to Vietnam my father, a WW II vet, gave me a simple piece of advice: "Take care of your troops and they'll take care of you." Truly a life lesson (and right on the mark.)

Bill's four careers (military, engineering, consulting, and education) come through loud and clear in being a pragmatic strategist. If you're a middle manager who needs to think about the future, pay attention to Bill.
