Bernie Maloney’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 twenty-five years of engineering and leadership experience, he’s worked with firms including Bell Telephone Laboratories, HP, TiVo, and Cisco and helped scale businesses from break-even to beyond $100 million. In addition to his client work, he teaches agile product development at Stanford Continuing Studies. Bernie helps his clients lead through influence rather than authority. He believes that accelerating genius is possible in any leader, team, or business, and leads not only to success, but also to a whole lot more fun.
