Positive change begins by believing it is possible to “live without limit”, Richard’s trademark vision for individual work/life success. Career and personal reinvention today is a given, navigating this by acquiring the tools of honest reflection, self knowledge and acceptance yields the ability to successfully adapt to anything thrown in our path.
Richard begins with uncovering where the obstacles currently show up, then collaboratively converting them into the tools of personal awareness and authenticity. He coaches individuals and teams and leads workshops through candor, communication, deep listening as we together chart the path where a client’s truest success and motivation lives, then design strategies and accountability to maintain the course.
Richard’s expertise to coach others is taught by the school of repeated reinvention and serial entrepreneurship. Beginning as a Broadway theater choreographer and Dance company founder, Richard became co-founder and CEO of a leading manufacturing and design company of consumer products, successfully sold ten years later. After simultaneously consulting with the David Allen Company and becoming a Broadway theater producer, Richard turned his attention to coaching and facilitating others on more effectively living one’s best life. His coaching continues to be informed by his work as a mediator and grief support facilitator.
Richard lives in the beautiful wine country of Sonoma County with his partner of 32 years and labradoodle.
