- J. G. Richards ConsultingCEO, present
I'm a consultant and author. I work with companies and people who are changing more rapidly than they were prepared to because they want to or, in some cases, they must.
My first book is "Fresh Eyes: See a moment. Take a moment. Give a moment." (The cover of the book, by the way, is a photo of a cloud I saw one day that looked, amazingly, like a hand in the sky. A good friend said when she saw it, "You HAVE to do something with this!" Eventually, that photo led to the book, and many other things, as well).
I now have a course and mentoring program, "The Fresh Eyes Process." It's for people going through major change and transition in their work or personal lives.
Before I started my consulting business, I worked at Apple Computer, helping to evaluate and improve key business processes in product development, manufacturing, distribution, finance and administration, and sales and marketing.
My MBA is from UC Berkeley and I have a BS in journalism from Iowa State.
I was also a five-year national examiner for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, an award funded by the US Department of Commerce to recognize full-organization performance excellence (business, health care, education, and non-profit) and its importance for national performance and competitiveness.
