It may sound odd at first, but Rick relies on his decades of studying and working with non-human animals to best serve as a coach for individuals and a consultant for businesses. And he attributes his skills in observation and decoding behavior to his dyslexia.
Growing up with dyslexia, Rick was forced to learn in a system that he could not fit into. Adapting and seeing the world differently, Rick learned the importance of shifting perspectives from his own to others and vise versa.
As many of us know, listening is the most important part of communicating. But Rick also applies the need to truly understand the people he works with. As he learned with working with animals – each one is an individual. Therefore you work with them in a way that suits them. He works with people ands businesses the same way, taking the time to acknowledge the individual (or individuals) and understand who they are.
