Fanelli Pathways


Meet Bill


I created this business to help people discover their unique pathway, whether they be aspiring leaders, people searching for a best-fit career, or leaders implementing strategy while navigating the change.  I have deep experience in designing and delivering leader education, facilitating the effectiveness of management teams, and coaching leaders. All my solutions are custom-fit for you and your organization.  It's about your pathway, not mine.

I am certified to coach leaders and teams using the Matrix Insights Leadership Dashboard, Lominger Leadership Architect competency model, Lominger Voices 360-degree assessment, Hogan Development Assessments, and Belbin Team Roles.

I'm also certified to teach Ken Blanchard's Situational Leadership and Franklin-Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I am experienced helping leaders execute strategy with Franklin Covey’s 4 Disciplines of Execution.  

After 25 years coaching colleagues and friends discern their career pathways on an informal basis, I decided to make if official in 2018. I obtained certification in the use of the Strong Interest Inventory, licensed life-planning tools from a long time mentor, and became a career coach. I am also a Coaching Partner with the Kenosis Counseling Center. Career coaching is a natural extension of the leader development and coaching that I’ve been doing for the last 20+ years.

I retired from Eli Lilly & Company in 2015, and my career spanned public health, operations management in manufacturing, and for my last 18 years, leadership and organizational development. I earned B.S. and M.P.H degrees from the University of Michigan, and I am a proud and thankful recepient of the Evans Scholarship, a nationwide scholarship program for golf caddies which paid for my undergraduate years at Michigan.
