Loss of Job Creates Opportunity for Executive to Create Flint Strategic Partners and Write New Book About Life Lessons and Leadership
Sometimes There Is Pain in the Journey to Help Us Find Our Purpose and Passion
GOSHEN, Ind., June 8, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — When circumstances deliver an unforeseen life event, it’s easy to become immobilized between wondering, “Why did that happen?” and “What am I going to do about it?” Like many victims of downsizing in the business world, Bill Flint found himself suddenly unemployed at age 61. He refers to it as a time when Faith and Fear collided: his, “Now what, God?” moment. Unlike many people, though, who see unemployment as an opportunity for early retirement or gradual withdrawal from activity, Bill saw this as an opportunity to follow his longtime dream of creating his own consulting firm, to help companies maximize the potential of their most important asset: the people who come to work every day wanting to accomplish something bigger than themselves. Bill says, “what is needed are servant leaders who care, motivate and encourage their people to discover and reach their potential.”
Bill started Flint Strategic Partners, located in Goshen, Indiana, to provide strategic consulting, coaching and servant leadership training to companies of any size. He also found time to write his first book called “The Journey To Competitive Advantage Through Servant Leadership,” which is currently among the top 10 best-selling books out of 4,700 titles on Amazon in the servant leadership category in the U.S., France, Italy, Canada, UK, Spain, China and Germany. It is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million and other retailers.
“The Journey To Competitive Advantage Through Servant Leadership” was published by Westbow Press, a Division of Thomas Nelson. The intent of the book is to clearly illustrate his business philosophy of sincere motivation of and interest in people, drawing on his experiences to create a step-by-step guide for leaders. He states, “…it is truly possible to create an environment of caring, trust and respect between leaders and those they lead.”
His book has also been nominated for Book of the Year by Forward Review in the career category. The winners will be announced at the American Library Association annual convention June 23, 2012, in Anaheim, California.
Over a 40-year period, Bill has lived in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Wisconsin and Indiana as he navigated a successful business career that included 28 years in senior management positions and 12 years as president of two separate companies. One of those companies recorded annual sales of $125 million with ten manufacturing facilities in the United States, Mexico and Europe.
