About Rick Warm

Rick Warm has been an executive coach since 2005. Though the focus of his work is on leadership development, the last several years he has developed a professional and personal interest in the "second half of life," wisdom, the transition of midlife, and eldership. Rick teaches classes on these subjects at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) and leads discussion groups and workshops. He is also a leadership consultant, facilitates leadership seminars and workshops, and has served as an adjunct professor of leadership at Northern Kentucky University. In addition, Rick is the director of the Center for Wisdom and Leadership, an organization doing research and teaching programs on wisdom and its impact on leadership. Rick has lived, worked, and studied for extended periods of time on five continents, giving him a strong global and intercultural perspective and facility in multiple languages. He is a lifelong musician and martial artist which contributes to his scholarship and interest in integrating body, mind, heart, and spirit into leadership development. He is also a teacher and practitioner of TriYoga and an ardent student of Argentine tango. Rick has an MBA in International Business from the University of South Carolina and a Ph.D. in Leadership and Change from Antioch University. The focus of his research is on wisdom, education, mastery, transformation and the hero’s journey. He is also an ICF credentialed coach with a professional certification in individual and organizational coaching from The Hudson Institute
