About Rick Milliken

rickmHelping people to be successful has always been my passion – whether that meant working with fellow managers on overall improvement or helping small business owners overcome the challenges of running a business. I opened The Growth Coach because I knew that passion, combined with my corporate business experience, would make me a powerful ally for business owners and leaders in this community.

Prior to opening The Growth Coach, I was a senior operations executive for more than 25 years. My diverse experience includes management and leadership roles including project management, operations, logistics and procurement in the oil and gas and construction industries. I also worked in international management in Russia, Kazakhstan and the United States. In those roles, I was often recognized for management of complex projects, leadership of multi-discipline and multi-cultural teams.

I took early retirement, from the corporate world, at the end of 2008. Since then, through 2014, I did all of the early retirement things – golfing, catching up on reading and getting to know my family again. Along the way I renovated a number of residential properties, relocated back to Canada and designed, had built and landscaped a new home. I also spent some time helping out colleagues, researching new ventures and did due-diligence on a number of business opportunities.

When I decided that it was time to go back to work again, I knew going back to the corporate world was not what I wanted to do. I examined the areas of my prior working life I enjoyed most and kept coming back to coaching other managers and owners and helping them work through issues that were outside of their skill sets. I’ve been privileged to work with some extraordinarily talented technical people – the kind of folks who can build anything, fix anything and operate anything – but often their skills didn’t extend into areas such as planning, budgeting and personnel issues. Thosewere areas that I could provide help and guidance. Those experiences lead me to the notion of coaching and, ultimately, The Growth Coach.

In addition to my corporate experience, I also had a brief – and costly – experience owning and operating my own business. The failure of that business was a terrific learning experience, but I’ve thought many times since that, if I had had access to an experienced advisor at the time, perhaps things would have turned out differently. I want to be that experienced advisor for business owners and company leaders in this community. If I can be that lifeline for people, then I’ve succeeded.

Contact me today and let’s talk about how I can help you run a more successful business without sacrificing your personal life.
