Hugh Ballou

How does a conductor of orchestras and choirs teach leadership - very enthusiastically! Hugh Ballou teaches leaders around the globe how to build synergy with teams and how to build effective processes that bring success to any organization - no matter how small or how large. "I travel around the country and around the world and find that you can change the name of the organization, the location and the type of structure and you will still have the same issues - leaders not leading effectively!"

Ballou brings 40 years of experience as conductor to his leadership training. "I call the training The Quintessential Leader: Four principles for transforming your organization and your teams, but no one can produce effective teams without fine-tuned leadership skills. I teach business executives how an orchestra conductor brings out the best skill of the players that have been hired. The conductor is a dictator, however, if the conductor hires a good oboe player, then it's best to let that oboe player use his or her skill rather than tell them how to play the oboe!" It sounds silly, however, leaders who micro-manage those whom they lead only receive a fraction of the performance that is ultimately possible. Let the team perform!

The skill set of planning for success, constructing powerful goals, and delegating with authority are consistent themes where many leaders underperform.

Ballou's unique ability in inspire and motivate event the most difficult of audiences has made him the expert in the field of Transformational Leadership. Transformational Leaders build strong leaders on teams that are motivated, focused and highly effective in setting and implementing powerful goals.

Alan also coaches executives on how to sharpen their knowledge, capacity, and effectiveness at leading change.

Read More

Alan draws on over twenty years of leadership experience in sustainable development, having held several chief executive roles in organizations, in addition to his business role as President and CEO of AtKisson Group. His experience includes co-founding and leading Sustainable Seattle (1990-1995); and serving as president of the International Network of Resource Information Centers (also known as the Balaton Group, 2006-2012). He has directed numerous projects and programs and has also, on two occasions, served as a transitional chief executive to lead institutions through major change processes. One of these occasions was for the global Earth Charter Initiative in 2006-2007. With a background that combines business management, economics, journalism, science and the arts, he is dedicated to helping other leaders meet the practical challenges of sustainability with innovation and strategic vision.


Author

Alan is the author of several books on sustainability theory and practice, as well as dozens of articles and reports. Believing Cassandra: An Optimist Looks at a Pessimist's World (1999, updated and reissued in 2010) explains the origins of the modern sustainability movement through the lens of the mythological character, "Cassandra," who was given the special gift to see the future, but cursed so that no one would believe her warnings. An Amazon bestseller, reviewers called Believing Cassandra "a pivotal book" and "a very important work," and organizations purchased it by the carton to spread its "message of hope" to their colleagues. The new edition has been translated into Russian and Chinese.

Alan's latest book is The Sustainability Transformation (Earthscan/Routledge, 2010). Using the same personal, engaging writing style that made Believing Cassandra so popular, The Sustainability Transformation is an empowering and inspirational look at doing sustainability in practice, today. Mixing global trends, practical guidance, systems-based analysis, case studies, and profiles of successful "Change Agents," The Sustainability Transformation is a highly readable guide to the theory, practice, tools, methods, as well as the ethics of professional sustainability work. It has been called "the essential guide" (H. Lovins) as well as "inspiring and informative, offering clear and easy-to-follow framework and tools" (the journal Ecological Economics).

Speaker, Trainer, Creative Presenter


Alan frequently makes inspirational keynote speeches to conference audiences around the world. Through The ISIS Academy, he leads motivational workshops, training intensives, and Master Classes on sustainability and change. As a communicator, he writes for websites, blogs, tweets, and generally tries to share mission-critical information for accelerating sustainability. He can present effectively in English, Swedish, and French.

Alan is also known for his music: he writes songs and makes albums, which are available on iTunes and Amazon.com. A singer-guitarist who led bands in New York in his 20's, Alan is known for occasionally surprising conference or workshop audiences with songs designed to make sustainability ideas engaging and memorable.

Professional Background


Alan was educated in philosophy, science, and language arts at Tulane University (USA) and Oxford University (UK), and was named a 1981 Henry Luce Scholar, which provided him with a year-long professional internship in Malaysia. At the time, he was working in social work and counseling psychology. In the mid-1980s, while also pursuing a music career, Alan ran a successful up-market clothing design manufacturing company in New York City. He and his then partner decided to close the business in 1987, when they encountered corruption and other barriers that made it difficult to run an ethical business in that industry, at that time, in New York City.

In 1988, Alan shifted gears and began professional work on sustainability in 1988, serving as executive editor of the pioneering journal In Context: A Quarterly of Humane Sustainable Culture. There he came into contact with many of the pioneering thinkers and researchers in sustainability, including Donella Meadows, who mentored him and encouraged him to be inventive and to take leadership in the emerging field. In 1990, he and other colleagues co-founded the Sustainable Seattle initiative, later recognized by the United Nations as a model project in urban sustainability and indicator development. Also in 1990, Alan began introducing the concept of "sustainability change agents" through workshops and lectures (building on Everett Rogers' pioneering work in innovation theory), and developing tools and methods for doing sustainability that are now used world wide.

In 1992, Alan began consulting on sustainability, as a platform for introducing innovation into the field, and for testing those innovations in the marketplace. He founded a small business in Seattle, USA, which has grown into the AtKisson Group, a network of AtKisson-owned or -licensed enterprises in ten countries. He has led the Group since then, with two breaks to take other positions temporarily: Director of the National Indicators Program (and later Interim Executive Director) at Redefining Progress, a US economic policy think-tank; and transitional Executive Director of Earth Charter International, the coordinating hub for the global Earth Charter Initiative. In 2001, Alan moved to Stockholm Sweden, established the office of AtKisson Europe, and continued to grow the AtKisson Group and to spread its tools and methods into Asia, Africa, and Australia.

Business Growth through Remarkable Service

It is no accident that most of the 2007 Business Week Customer Service Elite companies grew profits in excess of 20% this year. These companies know that remarkable service leads to business growth. They also recognize great customer service can trump price, product and location in the customer’s new definition of marketplace value. The Elite execute remarkable service through up-to-date customer intelligence, a purposeful service strategy, customer-centric metrics that insure focus, standards that promote consistency, service forensics able to repair hiccups before they disappoint customers, and a people plan that has effective leadership as its centerpiece. The execution formula produces devoted customers imperative to enhancing business growth and/or unit reputation. Based on Dr. Chip Bell’s cutting-edge research and forthcoming book, Customer Loyalty Guaranteed, this provocative, high-energy session reveals the tactics essential to creating business growth through remarkable service.



Service Innovation: Re-igniting the Customers’ Experience for Bottom-Line Impact

What do Cabela’s, NetFlix, Build-A-Bear, Enterprise Rent-a-car, Progressive Insurance and FedEx have in common…other than incredible business growth? They all have created or reinvented the way customer service was delivered to customers in their industry. Remarkable service requires a perpetual pursuit of new and unique ways to make the customers’ experience sparkly, but consistent; enriching, but profitable. And business growth is the name of the game. It means thinking differently like a service inventor with a bottom-line bias. It is discovering the service version of the “free prize” inside the Cracker Jack box. This lively, hands-on session draws from Dr. Chip Bell’s 20+ years consulting with many of the major companies deemed to be the world’s best service innovators. Attendees leave with countless cutting edge techniques and a head full of ideas for either reinventing or re-igniting the service experience they deliver to customers.



Leading Customer LoyaltyMakers™

Remarkable service can occur without great leadership; all organizations have associates who work to give great service simply out of the belief that customers deserve their best. But to ensure distinctive service happens consistently across an organization requires the guiding hand of skilled, passionate leaders. Look behind the scenes of organizations renowned for remarkable service—the ones with true business growth, not just growth through acquisitions. You will find leaders whose behaviors and practices nurture the spirit to serve. Based on Dr. Chip Bell’s forthcoming book, Customer Loyalty Guaranteed, attendees gain insights, instruction and the incentive to lead associates in delivering loyalty-creating service. Framed around a practical formula and laced with riveting great examples, this session can jump start leaders’ passion and reset their practices for transforming mediocre service into sustainable remarkable service.



Clients as Partners: Building Profitable Professional Relationships That Last

Distinctive service in the professional world can be vastly different than the approach used by a merchant to win a consumer. For the business-to-business world and/or in the space of sophisticated products or specialized expertise, the path to success is a long term, profitable relationship. When clients feel like valued partners in a power-free relationship, their expectations are more realistic, they are more forgiving of mistakes, more ardent advocates, and their economic investment in the firm or organization deepens. Loyalty research convincingly demonstrates that the longer a client remains with an organization the greater their impact on business growth. Dr. Chip Bell’s insightful, fresh program provides audiences with provocative, yet practical tools, tips and techniques for building profitable client relationships that last. 


Creating a High Performance Service Team

Customer service rarely happens without the support of units far from the frontline. Likewise, customer loyalty is built on valued experiences that are created through seamless handoffs, superb inter-unit and between unit communication, and a shared vision. It is the type of flawless execution that is characteristic of a great symphony, a superb racing pit crew, or a world-class surgical team. Drawing from many years of research on high performance teams and applied to the unique requirements for remarkable service, Dr. Chip Bell’s powerful session arms attendees with riveting case examples, easy-to-apply techniques, and the renewed zeal to work collaboratively. Organizations with skillful teamwork enjoy greater efficiency and productivity yielding higher profits, lower costs and improved business growth. The session can be a fast-acting antidote to silo thinking, bureaucratic bottlenecks, and internally focused practices.


NINE WAYS TO USE CHIP BELL
Help Your Front Line Deliver A Service Experience You Can Be Proud Of

First and last impressions of every service experience are delivered to customers by front line employees. It’s those employees that most need up-to-date training. Chip Bell not only inspires front line personnel by reminding them of the value of their ambassador role – he also gives them practical tips for those moments when service delivery can be most challenging. Front line employees leave his memorable presentations excited, empowered, and ready to create remarkable experiences for customers.


“Pre-Season” Customer Service Refresher

Every sport has a pre-season where veteran athletes refresh their fundamentals and renew their tactics. Regularly reinforce your organization’s service vision and rekindle your employees’ preparation and passion for extraordinary customer commitment. While everyone knows what to do and how to do it – people just get too busy. This powerful wake-up call can reinforce the basics and remind employees of their importance in creating passionately devoted customers.


Unleash and Transfer the Wisdom of Your Leaders

Too often valuable know-how is lost when your leaders leave or change roles. Mentoring is a vital skill for all your employees, especially for your leaders. Progressive leaders help their associates get smart, not just get ahead. Chip Bell drives this point home using practical examples and best practices from leaders and organizations famous for coaching competence. His pragmatic recipe for everyday one-to-one mentoring has helped thousands of leaders communicate valuable wisdom and skills to their associates.


Set the Tone for Organizational Change

Retooling your organization to meet rising customer requirements can sometimes be met with resistance. Chip Bell sets the tone to ensure your message is delivered to enthusiastic ears. He tailors his talk to every audience from delivering convincing evidence to executives, to supplying encouraging strategies to managers, to providing new how-to tips to front line employees. Chip can turn your doubters into willing advocates and your fence-sitters into spirited fans.



Leading the Quest for Customer Devotion

Customers see your unit or organization through the attitudes and practices of employees they encounter. Bottom line, a consistent customer experience takes service leadership! Service leaders need not be charismatic and charming to be effective. However, there are specific leadership tasks required for consistent and remarkable service across organization. Using compelling examples, solid research, humorous delivery, and cutting-edge ideas, leaders learn concrete ways to release employee passion, encourage boldness, and reinvent problem processes. Audiences are guaranteed to leave ready and able to get their associates engaged, enthused, and eager to give unforgettable, magnetic service.


Make “Partnership” Your Theme

Customer dazzlement can be a great goal, but a dead-end street! As organizations seek to "wow" the customer, standards climb and the customer looks for yet another "blow my mind" tactic. There is a more powerful approach to long-term customer loyalty: customer partnerships. When customers feel like partners, they are more forgiving of mistakes, their economic investment in the organization deepens, and they champion the organization to others. This insightful, fresh program will provide your audience with provocative, yet practical tools, tips and techniques for building customer relationships that last.


A Commitment to Internal Customers

Customers just aren’t external – they’re internal, too. And internal customers are just as important as external customers in building a reputation of remarkable service. Ensuring exceptional internal customer service improves performance, productivity, effectiveness and it increases your revenue. Chip lays the groundwork and provides the techniques for delivering exceptional internal customer service.


Renewing the Passion for Customers

Downsizing and reorginizations have robbed colleagues of colleagues, leaving the survivors hollow. And the desire for razor-thin margins has too often put short term profits at center stage and long term partnerships in the cheap seats. As the soul of the organization is put in the vise of profit, the positive spirit of workers gets squeezed out. And, because of employee apathy or indifference, customers can end up experiencing customer service that is either boring or bad. Chip can provide your leaders with principles and practices for turning lethargy in energy. Learn new tools for renewing a passion for customers while still focusing on running a profitable operation.
