Bill Duane & Associates
Bill Duane works at the intersection of individual resilience and organizational effectiveness, particularly in innovative and/or chaotic environments. As an engineering executive for Google earlier in his career, Bill was responsible for worldwide production engineering for Gmail, Apps and Websearch Infrastructure, leading a team of 130 people across 5 countries...and caused burnout. As he investigated his burnout, Bill discovered a deep interest in the biological, psychological and interpersonal mechanisms of happiness, effectiveness and well-being which led him to create the role of Google's Superintendent of Well-Being.
At Google, he and his team created worldwide programs to demonstrably move the needle on well-being at the individual, team and organizational level, partnering with various teams in the Google ecosystem to make it part of the culture. After 12 years at Google and 25 years in corporate environments, he is taking his expertise to a more diverse set of individuals and organizations.
