Rick’s coaching made a very significant difference in my ability to develop as a leader. He had the insights to help me understand what was inhibiting my growth and then provided me with the feedback, tactics, and guidance to help me transform my leadership. Because our work together, I have been promoted into a much more complex role in my function, and I’m now considered a ready successor for one of the most senior roles of the organization.

As a GM taking over a new organization and site, Rick was invaluable in helping me develop the skills and capabilities I needed to strategically align my team. As a coach he helped me see where and how I needed to evolve as a leader; as a consultant he enabled me to develop an engaged, collaborative, and dedicated work force that is now having a significant business impact on the organization’s growth. His business insights, his emotional intelligence and his coaching expertise have made a lasting difference for me, my direct reports, and my extended team. I’m very thankful for the opportunity of working with him.
