The problem we solve

Once is not enough — it takes more than an afternoon keynote to develop your next-gen leaders.

The Water The Bamboo Leadership Development System offers sustained engagement through experiential learning.


Water The Bamboo is a philosophy and a framework for learning to lead through continual personal transformation and persevere through adversity.


Our program features live, quarterly, fast-paced interactive seminars, an online personal development course with videos, ongoing peer-to-peer learning, and much more.


Greg Bell is a top-rated keynote speaker and author who combines 15 years of corporate development experience with a comprehensive training curriculum.


"One of our main goals as an organization this year is 'Investing in Training & Development.' Greg worked with us to create a leadership development program based on his book Water The Bamboo. Greg spent time learning about our organization and our development needs, and wove into the program a curriculum that was specific to our culture. We graduated 25 leaders from the program, and expect to have another group attend the program in the upcoming year."

— Tim Morgan, President & Chief Executive Officer, AAA Oregon/Idaho



A one-off keynote can only do so much to develop and inspire your leaders. It takes active continual learning and multiple guided seminars throughout the year to truly develop your future leaders and keep them engaged for the long haul.
