Meet Dick Schulte.
A seasoned and successful senior leader and former CEO, Dick’s experience, insights, and passion for leadership development come from more than 20 years spent in executive roles for both private and public companies. During his business career, he excelled at creating and leading teams of ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things.
A few years ago Dick shifted his vocational focus from operating leader to coach and advisor founding TruPath® Leadership Development. His mission is to serve, coach, and guide senior business leaders—at the enterprise and whole-life level—empowering them with the courage and clarity to become highly effective leaders.
His professional career has spanned more than three decades across a variety of businesses and industries including voice/data network services and systems, wireless services and software, and ecommerce service delivery. He led teams and businesses in emerging markets for breakthrough products and services in common use today: the mobile phone, voice conferencing, web conferencing, wireless data security, and travel ecommerce.
Dick followed his urge to build successful companies with strong values and vibrant cultures and became an entrepreneur, co-founding or leading three different start-up companies based in Colorado.
In 2005, after the successful sale of a company he co-founded, Dick had the opportunity to deeply probe his life’s purpose, mission, and vision for the first time in his life. The coaching process Dick experienced helped him realize how powerful and beneficial executive coaching can be for leaders. Guidance from a gifted coach taught him how to separate his career identity–how he had always defined himself–from his true life’s purpose. This awakening led to revitalized relationships with colleagues, family and friends. The outcome was profound, liberating, and has led to a more peaceful, balanced, and fulfilled life.
Dick’s education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in International Political Economy from Colorado College, study in Europe, and an MBA. He lives in the Denver area and truly enjoys the inspirational beauty of Colorado. He is a former professional athlete, and a dedicated and accomplished alpine skier and road cyclist. He’s been married to Susan for 32 years and they enjoy wonderful relationships with their three adult children.
