Who Helped Me the Most in 2016 – George Richardson A Gentleman’s Gentleman

One of my colleagues, Jim Keenan, wrote a blog posting about who helped him the most in 2016.  He then went on to answer how this person helped him.  Keenan shared his posting with me and it got me thinking, truly thinking, that deep, dive down to your guts type of thinking of who helped me the most in 2016.

helped-me-the-mostI made a list of people who had gone out of their way to be supportive.  As I read the list, I saw the names of old friends and new friends, clients, colleagues and even some authors with whom I never had a conversation.

WHO HAD THE GREATEST IMPACT ON MY YEAR IN 2016?

However, one name surfaced after all this introspection and that name was George Richardson. My connection with George began back in 1999 when I met him at a quarterly conference sponsored by Resource Associates Corporation .

Over the years, George has always been a gentleman’s gentleman full of grace and incredible knowledge.  He is one of the few individuals I have had the pleasure of knowing who always gives credit where credit is due.

WHAT DID THIS PERSON HELP YOU ACCOMPLISHMENT OR ACHIEVE IN 2016?

George’s support was always present. He facilitated the knowledge of psychometric assessments such as Innermetrix Attribute Index, DISC and Values. George was always willing to share articles or those crucial tidbits of information to fill in the knowledge gaps. Finally George was very generous with his time including scheduling a mastermind meeting every two weeks to help other executive coaches and consultants to better understand these psychometric assessments.

WHY WAS THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT SO IMPORTANT TO YOU?

One of my goals in 2016 was to improve my understanding of these three (3) specific psychometric assessments and how they can provide insight into the field of talent management. An article I wrote on LinkedIn Plus was partly the result of George’s insight.

WHAT DID THIS PERSON DO TO HELP YOU ACCOMPLISH THAT GOAL?

Sometimes knowing someone is out there that has far more experience than you and is willing to support you means so much.  George readily answered questions be it through emails or the master mind sessions.

HOW DID GEORGE RICHARDSON’S SUPPORT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Knowing that one false statement to a executive coaching or sales coaching client can have far reaching negative impact, George’s support provided additional clarity so I would be better prepared to avoid making those statements.

WHY ARE YOU SO THANKFUL FOR HIS SUPPORT?

In today’s world, there are still some people who are selfish with the sharing of their knowledge because they fear the competition.  I am so grateful George is not one of those people.

HOW IS YOUR WORLD DIFFERENT TODAY BECAUSE OF THIS PERSON?

My world has much greater clarity when it comes to understanding and then sharing the results of these psychometric assessment tools.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SAY TO THIS PERSON, THAT YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY TOLD THEM?

George Richardson you are a blessing to this world, thank you.
