Professional Development Meeting

April 12th, 2017

5:30 to 9:00 p.m.

Topic: Learn to Lead: guarnteed to succeed


Richard will discuss his remarkable path to success. He led his $120 million business to great success by applying the lessons he learned from Frank, the business guru who became his mentor.  In his 10 years as CEO, Richard’s leadership style matured from a controlling, hands-on micro manager to a more strategic leader and coach. He will share with us simple yet life changing lessons and discuss how to empower leaders to create their own culture of achievement that will lead to guaranteed business success.  We will learn how to start working "ON the business" and not "IN the business" to improve results as Richard shares how to:

     •Define our own leadership role and leverage our unique talents to focus on what only we can accomplish for our enterprise
     •Create a compelling Vision that inspires organization-wide action
     •Cultivate a Team of Trusted A-Players and learn to hire people with future leadership potential
     •Retain A-Players by having fun and celebrating success 

At age 28, Richard took the reins of his 100 year old family car and truck dealership business after his father was forced to retire suddenly.  That alone was a challenge.  Worse, the business was losing $3.5 million a year and there was no plan. With help from his mentor, Frank, Richard was able to apply creative strategies, articulate a crystal clear vision, hire the right people and forge a dynamic team ultimately helping the business survive and then prosper in a tough and competitive industry.  Richard is now a speaker who shares with his audiences the key strategies that guarantee business success today into tomorrow. 

Richard lives in Evergreen, Colorado with his wife and two teenage children and likes to spend his leisure time golfing, skiing and traveling with family and friends.  Richard is a professional member of the National Speakers Association.
