Bill Eckstrom of the EcSell Institute, ‘Becoming Comfortable with Discomfort’
After documenting and researching over 100,000 coaching interactions in the workplace, Bill Eckstrom shares life-altering, personal and professional development ideas through the introduction of the “Growth Rings.” The rings illustrate how dangerous it can be to remain in a state of comfort and how being in discomfort is the only way to sustain growth.
Attendees will learn:
• When comfort is appropriate and needed
• Why discomfort should be embraced
• Strategies for recognizing and creating discomfort
You’ll be amazed at the world-changing outcomes discomfort can have on your life and the lives of others.
About Bill Eckstrom:
Bill Eckstrom is an executive, entrepreneur, mentor, student, husband, and father. His primary passion is growth – especially how coaches and leaders impact the growth and performance of individuals and teams.
This passion inspired Bill to launch the EcSell Institute, a research-based organization that works with leaders internationally to help them better understand, measure, and elevate coaching’s impact on performance. EcSell’s science and programming on the role of the coach has been changing the behaviors, activities, and performance in diverse industries from athletic teams to businesses around the world.
Bill began his management career in 2000 at a medical equipment company and climbed the ranks to become US Director of Sales in just three years. In 2004, Bill accepted a job as Senior VP of Business Development for a publicly traded healthcare organization. By 2008, the organization’s stock price had doubled and new sales revenue had grown 280%. Later that same year, he founded EcSell Institute.
As a result of his experiences, his company’s findings, and his public speaking skills, Bill’s work as a keynote speaker is internationally renowned. Audiences have called him “profoundly authentic,” “highly entertaining,” and more. Bill is most proud of the fact that the material he presents is rooted in EcSell’s research and hard data – no motivational fluff. He has presented to hundreds of groups and is a popular guest on podcasts and shows around the world. Bill was invited to the TEDx UNR stage in 2017, and his talk entitled “Why Comfort Will Ruin Your Life” is the fastest growing TEDx Talk in the history of the event.
Growth is also what inspires Bill’s philanthropic life, especially his involvement in therapy dog work. He and his Labrador, Aspen, work together at senior living homes, children’s hospitals, and anywhere the presence of Aspen’s wagging tail and soft soul can bring a smile.
Bill’s home is in Nebraska, where he lives with his amazing wife, Kerstin. Together they have three children – Will Jr., Claire, and Maddie.
