Bernadette Boas is a ball of fire business growth consultant, leadership coach, change agent, keynote speaker, radio personality, author of her first in a series of books; Shedding the Corporate Bitch, Shifting from Bitch to Rich in Life and Business, and writer/contributor on all things women in leadership (her next books; Myth or Fact: Women Hate on Women, and The Shift to Riches Guide for Success).
In her words,
“For years my friends, family and business colleagues have considered me a ‘ball of fire.' Not only because of my red hair but more so because of my fiery spirit and get it done attitude. So, it was only appropriate for my business to be named the same. And I bring that personality, energy, and determination into everything I do.
I grew up in corporate America for twenty-five years in a variety of mentoring, consulting and management responsibilities, including roles as varied as Global Vice President of Professional Services Development, Chief Knowledge Officer, and Americas Business Consulting Partner, as well as Director of Business Solution Support, Buyer, and Junior Executive Mentor Leader. It provided me with a corporate savviness matched by few.
Upon being handed a pink slip in 2008, I confronted (bluntly) my bitch of a leadership style and persona; and decided to an author, Shedding the Corporate Bitch, Shifting from Bitch to Rich in Life and Business, as an apology to the road kill I left behind in my corporate life.
Growing and maturing significantly through my shedding process, I took those lessons learned, best practices, successes and missteps, and started my own consulting, coaching and public speaking business; Ball of Fire Consulting; where I take great pride in guiding high potential professionals, business owners, CEO’s and C-Level executives, companies and their cultures of activities toward their personal, work and company goals.
Today, leveraging both her corporate savviness and entrepreneurial spirit, Bernadette takes her message, learnings, best practices, tips and ball of fire personality around the world to help leaders, businesses and cultures shift toward RICHes in business and life.
