Bernadette Boas is a ball of fire leadership coach, keynote speaker, radio personality, and author of her first in a series of books; Shedding the Corporate Bitch, Shifting from Bitch to Rich in Life and Business.
In her own 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 executive management 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 Solutions, Senior Business Consultant, and Retail Buyer. I consulted with key industry leaders such as Walmart, Office Depot, Sears and many more to discover, propose, implement and support solutions that would drive out significant ROI in their businesses. My vast experience provided me with a corporate and business savviness matched by few, but didn’t ensure the one key factor for success.
Upon being handed a pink slip in 2008, I confronted (bluntly) my own bitch of a leadership style and persona; and decided to author, Shedding the Corporate Bitch, Shifting from Bitch to Rich in Life and Business, as an explanation and record of accountability, so others can understand why ‘bully’ type bosses act the way they do.
It wasn’t easy to confront the impact a bully or tyrant leadership style has on those around me, but it provided me the greatest lessons learned, best practices, successes and missteps, which has turned into my coaching, training and public speaking business; Ball of Fire Consulting; where I take great pride in igniting corporate and entrepreneurial professionals into the leaders they are meant to be in their career, business and life.”

“I invited Bernadette to speak to the Women in our Atlanta office. This was the first event geared for this group. She exceeded my expectations in motivating and engaging the group of women. Examples of the comments we received were; I would love to be with her just 5 minutes a day to keep me motivated, I’m re-energized, insightful, encouraging, I needed someone to push me to think about my personal and professional goals. Bernadette made it real and was extremely humbling in telling her story. We had customer service reps attend as well as the Chief Legal Counsel to our corporation. Everyone benefited.
