Dr. Rich spent 23-years in the United States Navy, starting at the lowest enlisted rank, and after 13 years took a commission – his last 10 years his career was in the Advanced Electronics Field of cryptology serving national security objectives. In the Navy, he learned how to be an intrepreneur – someone who excells and ‘climbs the corporate ladder.’
His life-philosophy, incremental gains (much like compound interest) was developed and perfected early in his career and in his personal life. By making continual progress, small incremental gains over periods of time, they collectively added up resulting in huge accomplishments and his great success.
While in the Navy, Dr. Rich earned his degrees, going to school part-time for over 15 years, one course at a time. Here again, incremental gains added up and resulted in him earning a Ph.D. in Applied Management and Decision Sciences. After honorably retiring from the Navy, Dr. Rich’s second career took him into academia where again, by making incremental gains from a part-time faculty member and program chair, he was appointed as an Associate Dean and within three years, a Dean at the University of Phoenix in the School of Advanced Studies.
After a successful run in a senior management position with the university, Dr. Rich decided to apply hisincremental gains as entrepreneur starting his own business Organizational Troubleshooter, LLC.

Through a prescription of quality services at an affordable investment, Dr. Rich’s Organizational Troubleshooter mission is to mentor you and your organization to realize and achieve your full potential.
The process of organizational and personal improvement can often be daunting. Within any change initiative, one must first address the opportunities for improvement within their organization and self. Identifying these opportunities can cause apprehension, manifesting as negative behaviors, such as denial, apathy, and even emotional paralysis. To dispel this lack of balance and to gain the requisite knowledge for positive and effective change, leaders, as well as organizations, often require a mentoring relationship with another. This external, objective perspective guides one in both accepting the difficult information gleaned in self-analysis and using that information to achieve levels of success beyond their greatest expectations.
Dr. Rich, the founder and Executive Director, is a troubleshooter. His practical experience in a variety of profit, non-profit, public, private, and governmental agencies, coupled with his theoretical insight, allows for a unique background to facilitate your personal or organizational needs — to not only identify problems, but to also identify a future end-state leading to higher levels of measurable success.
A unique, purposeful, intentional relationship is designed in such a manner that Dr. Rich’s approach is to assess, prescribe, and assist and therefore not to remain any longer than needed for improvements to take hold. Self-sustaining processes and continuous improvement are designed into his approach.
