Rick was asked several years ago by the Federal Home Loan Bank’s leadership for help because their managers across the U.S. were experiencing unprecedented challenges and needed strategies and skills to lead themselves and their teams. They knew of Rick’s expertise in leadership, planning, communications, and facilitating highly interactive employee engagement programs.
And so Rick developed (and is writing the book) PLAN TO BE YOUR BEST …As You Navigate Change©.
Rick has consulted for hundreds of companies seeking to navigate challenges and drive positive change, and he’s produced and facilitated over 1,000 employee engagement and training programs.
He’s held leadership positions on all sides of “the business” (agency, client and major media), and he founded two successful businesses: FullSail Strategic Communications, providing Fortune 1000 and small businesses alike with comprehensive strategic and creative marketing and communication services; and a business specializing in interactive events for engaging employees and customers.
In the Community…
As a highly trained facilitator and caregiver for people in personal or professional crisis, Rick has provided support and encouragement for hundreds of people, one-on-one and in small group settings.
In His Life, Altered by…
…one football injury, seven surgeries on his left knee, thirteen incisions, and 40+ years of what it means to be your best when navigating pain.
The latest surgery was in 2019, a partial revision of a total knee replacement. He’s needed to rebuild his leg several times over, has become an expert on pain management and is writing a second book, PLAN TO BE YOUR BEST …As You Navigate Pain©.
Rick enjoys fitness, fishing, music and being on the water every chance he gets.
A Piece of Trivia
The Boston Bruins asked Rick to host their first-ever game show in “The Garden” to entertain a private audience of 5,000 fans, starring the Bruins players as the contestants. Ask Rick about the hilarious way it ended.
