Rick Hansen Leadership

Transforming Leaders and The Teams They Lead


About Rick Hansen

Rick Hansen spent 10 years as a teacher and professor and nearly 2 decades in executive leadership. Originally from Southern CA, he is an avid surfer who is focused on teaching leaders how to motivate and inspire the teams they lead.  
With a diverse industry background in domestic and global markets, he’s an organizational leader that understands how to move business forward where motivation and inspiration become the competitive edge. Whether it’s the companies he’s owned or transformed, he’s developed a way that creates high levels of engagement. He uses the spirit of a startup, the practices and disciplines of general management, and principles from surfing to help create highly functioning teams. (rickhansenleadeship.com)
Of his work, one CEO of a multimillion, dollar global organization said, “He’s built, motivated, and lead this team to be the most dynamic unit in the company’s 30 year history in morale and overall potential.”
After a brief stint as an English Literature teacher, he transitioned to business where he became fascinated with how leaders engage their teams. He struggled with how to transfer – or even if he can he transfer – the more soft skills of teaching over to the very hard world of business, profits, and P&L. However, over time he realized the difference between the classroom and business was slight.
He’s a published author (Leadership and the Art of Surfing) and adjunct professor in Organizational Development and Theory. He’s competed in over 50 triathlons, 2 marathons, 10 half marathons, 10 centuries, a Kona Ironman Qualifier, and is a proud husband and father.
