I have been working with Rick for over 6 years. The most recent 3 years have had a strong focus on coaching for Sales Management development. Through careful analysis and questioning I have been able to take Rick’s suggestions and create a robust strategic sales plan. Not only has the company benefited from the focus we’ve created, but I have personally gained insight into how a good sales organization and process should work. By completely understanding our go-to-market strategy, Rick and I have been able to combine our sales pipeline and our internal operational strategy. This has allowed our entire organization to be more in tune with our goals for growth.
Rick Tiemann has provided valuable insights to our organization since 2003. We began our journey with Rick utilizing the 16PF assessment tool and Rick’s expertise to improve the quality of our Sales force, and then expanded to include managers and administrative support associates. We now rely on the 16PF and Rick’s consulting expertise as we put into place organizational team building and career development systems. Rick’s approach has been focused and effective. We enjoy working with Rick and each member of his staff, each of whom we have found to be trustworthy, professional, responsive and proactive.
B.S., VP of HR
Rick Tiemann has made a career of looking into the very soul of people. When his mastery of the tools of assessment are coupled with a lifetime of C-level leadership experience, he gives a whole new foundation to the saying “hire slow, fire fast.”
Rick brings an experienced and objective perspective to strategy and leadership development. He asks the tough questions that you can’t or don’t always want to ask yourself. He then helps develop answers that can bring significant change and a sense of being in better control of the organization’s future.
I have been working with Rick and his organization for over fifteen years during most of my professional career with great success, hiring over thirty highly successful, revenue-generating sales professionals with Rick’s guidance.
C.P., Vice President
Rick is amazing! He invested in me on a personal level. He was able to find the true cause of why I was struggling professionally, and he gave me the tools to succeed. I always looked forward to our conversations because I knew I was going to see an issue in a different light. He helped me improve as a person and grow professionally.
E.O., Director of Relationship Management
Rick has been in my corner now for almost a decade. I consider him to be a key element in my resource arsenal. Beyond his phenomenal depth of understanding of the psychological tools and instruments, it is his ability to put things into the business context that makes him such a valuable go-to resource for me.
T.B., Director of Talent Management
When I took over the Asian Operations in Shanghai, China I soon recognized I needed to build a stronger management team. I knew with Rick’s background in international business, he would be the logical choice to help make this happen. Rick’s concepts of management and leadership development and his understanding of the cultural differences in play within an international organization have proven valuable whenever I need to make decisions that have a major impact on my organization.
