Bernie’s career started with a flash and a bang. Literally. His first position was designing devices that protect telephone networks from lightning strikes. A few career pivots later, he had a flash of insight: it was possible to tap into latent potential in every person, every team, and every organization. Across his 25 years of engineering and leadership experience, he’s worked with firms including Bell Telephone Laboratories, HP, TiVo, Cisco and many more. In addition to his client work, he teaches Agile Product Development at Stanford Continuing Studies. Leading through influence rather than authority, Bernie believes that Accelerating Genius is possible in any leader, team or business, and can lead to success at work, while still having fun.
