Hi, I'm Rich Huttner. I'm a Certified Professional Coach who helps executives become more successful and get what they want.
If you're the CEO, HR Director, or other top organizational leader, you want all your good executives and managers to succeed and to stay with you. I bet some of them could do even better with thoughtful, professional coaching. They could lead their team members to new achievements. They could feel more satisfied and productive. They could overall become much stronger contributors to your organization.
I can help. Through thoughtful, concerned coaching, they 'll produce the outstanding results they are capable of -- the results you want.
What I do and who I am
Coaching is all about helping people. Building upon a client's (the person being coached) strengths, interests, and abilities, I help them formulate and execute their own action plan for growth and development.
The executive coaching process includes thoroughly getting to know my clients, building trust, maintaining strict confidentiality, and asking the right helpful questions. In seeing how well their own action plan works, they become more productive and successful leaders. They derive more satisfaction from the jobs, too.
Invest in your leaders, giving them the support they may need to excel.
Reduce their stress as they develop confidence and resiliency.
Enable them to build stronger teams, reduce team member turnover, and keep their organizations on the road to success.
For the last 12 years, I've also been a successful leadership and management skills trainer and executive coach. Over 200 companies sent their senior leaders to my Crestcom leadership workshops.
I’ve had a successful prior career as an VC-backed CEO and entrepreneur, even selling one of my media companies to Time Warner.
Lastly, I've also taught organizational behavior in Northeastern’s MBA program and am the author of The Universal Management Principle Workbook – How to Manage Your Team Better. My MBA is from Stanford Graduate School of Business.
How leaders benefit from my coaching
They have a dedicated coach who truly listens to them,
Who asks thoughtful questions that help them find their own correct path.
Carol was head of sales who was promoted to the VP Sales & Marketing slot. I helped her understand the broader scope of her new role. She wrote me:
“Things are going great so far. Bob (CEO) called me a Hero after our worldwide Sales & Service Meeting last week which I led. One of my colleagues nominated me for The President’s Award for the last fiscal. You sure were right on when you helped me see my new role was like becoming the General Manager of a sports club rather than its team manager. My new job includes supporting and developing the managers in many departments who now report to me. Your advice about starting out with a listening tour was invaluable. I’ve had great success, and I love the new job!! Thanks again for all your coaching that helped me solidify the promotion.”
Tony was the inventor of a hospital infection-control monitoring device and architect of the AI software upon which his start-up tech company was based. A brilliant inventor, as CTO, he had to learn how to become a more patient team player and to handle less stressfully the give and take of becoming a senior member of the management team.
Partially as a result of the coaching, Tony quickly matured in his role. He successfully led his company’s pilot project, resulting in a $20 M hospital system infection-control contract. His company has now embarked on its planned steep growth trajectory.
"If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves."
