Topic: What is a leader and what does leadership mean? In the continuing adventures of JP and Antlerboy, we explore the meaning and the practicalities. We fluff a joke about the perfect leader accidentally being defined as a despotic dictator, and tap a rich vein with memories of leadership lessons from high school sports coaches. And we stray into dangerous territory of leadership in the home – specifically our marriages. This is likely to be the first exploration of many in this field! We were lucky enough to be joined by Rick Torseth, who actually knows a bit about the subject, from experience and application.

Guest: Rick Torseth – Human Securities, Inc.
Rick Torseth is the co-founder of Human Securities—a leadership consulting and executive search firm established in 1992 in the Seattle area.
Rick’s consulting expertise is firmly grounded in over 23 years helping leaders; teams and organizations reach more of their potential and goals with methods and tools that support leadership development. Rick completed his dissertation on Adaptive Leadership and has an MSc degree in Coaching and Consulting for Change from Oxford University and from Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales in Paris.
Rick believes that coaching seldom has to do with helping change the world that leaders face and more to do with helping them to understand how they are being leaders and doing leadership. This is inside-out work. It helps to have a coach-partner like Rick who has traveled this road and has a commitment to the change process.
In Rick’s experience, few people or organizations truly grasp the magnitude of a change project and therefore underestimate the resources needed to successfully achieve change. Rick’s work is to help his clients build leadership capacity through learning, development and designed growth experiences inside their organization. He also provides access to resources, coaching and feedback that leverages the organizational eco-system so clients have more leadership moves available to them.
Rick is married to a truly wonderful woman and father to a great daughter. Theresa and Annika allow him the space to practice changing himself without too much laughter.
