After rapidly rising to the Vice President position at a fortune 100 company in the beginning of his career, Dick was given a region that was losing money. To turn the region around required some “out of the box” thinking. To cut the overhead by 4 million dollars, all warehousing and buying Staff was cut and shifted to a nearby region. Having been somewhat successful in a large corporation, Dick decided to open his own business, a venture that stumbled. Very different skills In running a large corporation versus a small business. Wearing all the hats was very different than delegating to a group of staff people. To turn things around, Dick reached out to some of his friends who had been successful in business, and they gave him some valuable advice that had business sailing within a year.
Dick’s business was saved by the advice of experienced business people, and because of that, Dick recognized the value of coaching. So, Dick decided to become a business coach because he knew what it was like to work hard for no return, and he knew that the only reason his business made a turnaround was because of the advice he received. Now, Dick has coached over 70 companies and has used his experiences to quickly identify a company’s needs and enable owners to achieve their vision.
