In this "Throwback Thursday" HCI Podcast episode, Dr. Jonathan H. Westover talks with Richard Medcalf about marrying the disciplines of strategy and leadership in the service of our clients.
Richard Medcalf (https://www.linkedin.com/in/richardmedcalf/) describes himself as "what you get if you were to put a McKinsey consultant, a slightly unorthodox pastor and an entrepreneur into a blender". Richard is an executive coach & leadership consultant to exceptional founders & CEOs and their leadership teams. His clients are elite performers who've already achieved incredible things, and still have the ambition to 10x their impact and influence and achieve something that seems impossible right now. After a Masters Degree at Oxford University, where he came top in his year, Richard started his career in a premier strategy consultancy where he rose to become the youngest-ever Partner. He then spent 11 years at tech giant Cisco, firstly elevating Cisco’s relevance in the C-suite of its Fortune 100 customers before being selected for an elite team to catalyse strategic partnerships & new business models. Richard has advised Founders and C-level execs for 20 years, from Fortune 100 companies to high-growth tech firms. Keen to marry the disciplines of strategy and leadership in service of his clients, he qualified as a senior leadership consultant and executive coach before founding Xquadrant in 2017. Richard is bi-national English/French, lives near Paris, and is happily married and the proud father of two.
