At a young age as an assistant coach at a high school, Billy Mitchell knew he would devote his life to helping people be their best ~ and for the past fifty years he has lived his mission. As a head coach, teacher, principal, associate professor, vice-president of athletics for a university and superintendent of schools, Dr. Mitchell’s ability to inspire people ~ to have people see themselves as they can be and not as they are ~ has been his strength.
In 1983, Dr. Mitchell founded the Power of Positive Students International Foundation, a not-for-profit organization. The Power of Positive Students Program is designed to systematically build positive attitudes, life skills and feelings of self-worth in educators, students and parents. Over 5,000 schools have benefited from the foundation under Dr. Mitchell’s leadership.
He collaborated with Dr. Norman Vincent Peale in producing a multimedia program which has subsequently been used by over one million students. He served as a panelist with Ken Blanchard, John Nasbitt and others, at a White House briefing on Business Ethics in America. He has given his message of positive thinking and personal development across America, Canada and in Australia. Dr. Mitchell co-authored with Dr. Denis Waitley, a parenting program entitled, Raising the Richest Kids in Town, a program being widely endorsed by school organizations, educators and parents.
His speaking style is most often described as “genuine.” As a child born on the “wrong side of the tracks,” and raised by his grandmother, Bill Mitchell knows what it takes to succeed in school, work and life. His compelling personal experiences and storytelling keep his audiences captivated.
Dr. Mitchell is the author of the bestseller, The Power of Positive Students, co-author of The Power of Positive Parenting, and author of Winning in the Land of Giants. He is a highly requested speaker at schools, educational organizations and businesses.
