Bell has been an entrepreneur since 1982, and she’s an expert in helping
companies develop the people side of
their business. In her first business as a consultant and trainer, she
conducted hundreds of programs for leaders and the members of their teams to
help them communicate and work together more effectively.
1990 she co-founded Performance Support Systems, a global software company
based in Virginia. Their assessment and development products are used by
leadership coaches and consultants as well as internal learning and development
professionals for leaders and employees. As president of the company, Meredith
is responsible for marketing and sales, and she’s personally worked with
thousands of entrepreneurs, leaders, consultants and coaches.
Fortune 500 companies like Kimberly Clark, Hershey’s, Johnson & Johnson, and ADP – as well as small- and medium-size organizations – have used her 20/20 Insight company’s feedback software to help thousands of leaders and employees improve their performance.
Meredith is a major contributor to the learning materials in all the company’s products, especially Strong For Performance This unique online coaching and development system guides participants to make the shift from KNOWING to DOING. The proven 3-step system for ingraining the skills - supported by hundreds of instructional articles, videos and mp3s – coupled with online coaching, support and accountability along with the ability to ask for feedback about progress - ensures a positive ROI.
One of Meredith strengths is building strong relationships. She and her two business partners have worked together for more than 26 years, and many of their clients and resellers have done business with them for 20 years. She understands what’s required to build the loyalty and commitment that lead to repeat business and referrals. She takes pride in getting feedback like this, which came from a reseller who’s worked with her company since 1994: “Performance Support Systems is the epitome of the client-centered, high-integrity, high-support company with world class products. You could look for a lifetime and not find its equal.”
Meredith is a frequent guest on podcasts, where she addresses topics like essential communication skills for the workplace, the benefits of focusing on giving and being of service, and what’s required to develop positive habits and skills over time.”
