Thrive Chicago Welcomes William Pollard, Author of "The Soul of the Firm"
Wednesday, January 23, 2013 from 7:30 AM to 9:15 AM (CST)
“The Soul of the Firm"
C. William (Bill) Pollard, Chairman of Fairwyn Investment Company, Former CEO and present Chairman Emeritus of The ServiceMaster Company®.
Bill Pollard writes in "The Soul of the Firm" about his path to bring people and values together. His story demonstrates the difference servant leadership can bring to both organizations and businesses - ultimately leading to success. Bill will share how this approach is primarily a commitment to people and is the basis for the global success of The ServiceMaster Company. By focusing on the impact that leaders can make in the lives of the people that look to them for leadership, Bill’s servant leadership style enabled consistent over-achievement of objectives.
Under Bill’s leadership, The ServiceMaster Company instituted an approach to teach management of this responsibility to develop individuals. The result is professional and personal growth for people throughout the organization along ethical values which in turn drives positive corporate outcomes.
Bill will share with the Thrive Chicago audience his journey on this path. His success is built on the belief that all of us are created with potential to serve and achieve great things. He will share his leadership philosophy of respect and dignity for people and believing in each individual’s value. He will share how this approach maximizes individual contributions to the success of the larger organization.
Thrive Chicago is pleased to present this inspiring talk as an opportunity to learn how Bill Pollard found servant leadership to help The ServiceMaster Company experience continuous growth in revenue and profit over a 25 years.
