About Walter Bond

Walter Bond is called the Accountability Leader because he forces each one of his listeners to learn to be responsible for whatever the situation they are in.

A former NBA athlete, Walter rose from being a reserve player coming off the bench to become the first rookie-free agent to start for the Dallas Mavericks. Walter, the young man who never, ever gave up on his dreams, went on to have an eight-year professional basketball career, playing along side such NBA greats as Karl Malone and John Stockton as a guard for the Utah Jazz and the Detroit Pistons. This astonishing journey provides the foundation for the principles he teaches to help empower people in their own personal journey. Toward the end of his basketball career, Walter developed the ability to apply on-the-court success and teamwork to the business world when he and his wife became owners of a national franchise. Walter changed his profession but never changed his winning attitude. Today he is recognized as one of the world’s preeminent experts on personal accountability.
