Bernie Nagle created the word, definition and concept, Altrupreneur, in 1995 when he began co-writing the book, “Leveraging People & Profit – The Hard Work of Soft Management.” Since then, thousands have learned the habits and practices described in his book, seminars and training sessions. Altrupreneur – a difficult term to pronounce and a very difficult role to fill – captures the essence of the kind of leaders organizations need.

Bernie has spent the last 30+ years leading, consulting, researching, teaching, and facilitating the phenomenon known as Employee Engagement. He has held positions as VP of Operations, VP of Manufacturing, Director of Strategy, and Director of Global Process Improvement for multi-billion dollar companies both domestically and globally. He has consulted for PriceWaterhouse, and served as VP of Childrens Services for Catholic Charities. He has been a small business owner and therefore an employer, and understands the distinct challenges that come with that title. He has also invested hundreds of volunteer consulting hours with non-profit social service agencies, helping them clarify their service proposition and make their efforts more productive.

It has been Bernie’s experience that followership derives not so much from the ability of an Alpha Individual to impress, inspire, motivate, or dominate…as from an ability to create a sense of mutual care and concern and a tangible shared aspiration, deeply felt by both the leader and the led. Out of that “shared aspiration” emerges the engine of positive change, fueled by the creativity and enthusiasm of an engaged workforce.

As a expert, Bernie looks forward to sharing the beliefs and practices of the Altrupreneur with members of our online community aspiring to advance in business and in life.
