Hi and welcome!

I work with managers and business owners who are serious about their development and the development of the people in their charge – business owners and managers who approach their work as a craft, that is, as something that provides them with both professional accomplishment and personal fulfillment.

You will find my ideas on my Blog and in my Book, and the work I do with managers and business owners in Solutions.

Here’s a brief profile:

Richard Brisebois is an executive coach, strategy consultant, and leadership development mentor. He has worked with 1,000+ managers, leaders, and business owners in 40+ countries, from Fortune50 executives to SME business owners and tribal leaders. He specializes in team coaching as well as designing and facilitating leadership development programs.

Richard has lived and worked in Canada, the U.S., South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia delivering leadership development programs and facilitating strategy thinking for clients such as Hydro Québec, The Economist, and Siemens. Earlier in his career Richard managed a real estate portfolio and acquired companies by means of debt-equity mechanisms that he engineered. He designed and developed undergraduate and MBA business programs, was a professor, and the dean of a business school.

He was a Visiting Professor and Guest Lecturer at 12 universities in 7 countries, delivering classes and keynotes in three languages, and has sat on the Board of three companies.

Richard is a clasically-trained guitarist, a lover of the outdoors, and -when his knees agree- an avid ice hockey player.

He holds a B.A. in Linguistics and Modern Languages for McGill University, a MBA in Finance from Concordia University, and a PhD in Management from IESE/University of Navarra.
