His mission is simple – to disrupt and create a rumpus within people’s thinking – challenging organisations to be more extraordinary than they ever imagined possible
Richard and his team have been pioneers of Artful Leadership for over 10 years – blending psychology, the arts and leadership to help clients leave behind ordinary and shift towards extraordinary.
Richard Tyler dreamed of performing on stage from an early age. After a few setbacks, he had a major jolt in his thinking and his career rocketed. He went on to play lead roles in many of London’s West End productions such as Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera.
Since taking the make-up and tights off, he is less of a drama queen, but occasionally still dips into the world of performance. You can catch him on the 2011 Phantom 25th Anniversary at the RAH on DVD/CD.
Richard is a certified NLP assessor, a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and has studied numerous other behavioural psychology disciplines. He now combines his 2 areas of expertise; the world of extraordinary performance and behavioural psychology, to offer a compelling vehicle for change and progression.
He works with boards, senior teams and leaders to provoke, nudge, cajole, reenergise, tickle and invigorate development. These are via Keynotes, coaching, change programmes and Leadership development events.

Dancing with Gorillas…
How to change your world instead of letting it change you!
Richard remembers learning from a very young age, that if you should happen to find yourself dancing with a gorilla, you don’t stop when YOU get tired, you stop when the Gorilla gets tired!!
Frankly, despite popular opinion, there are more gorillas’ out there than you might imagine! Each day, you can find yourself grappling with yet another issue and being seduced into a merry dance with the gorilla. Some will run before the gorilla appears, some before the dance begins, some will attempt a tango whilst the gorilla goes for a quick step and others will leave the dance, exhausted and tired.
Richard, despite his poor skills in the dance arena, has spent most of his life attempting all of the above. However, along the way he learnt that in order to dance with the gorilla elegantly and ensure he had one, big knackered gorilla in front of him, he needed to tap into a depth of personal resilience and attitude.
All too often, this is the same depth of resilience required by leaders and organisations today to ensure they make the best choices in steering their business to become extraordinary.
Richard shares the components of that resilience and attitude and encourages the audience to address some fundamental points:
Getting present – Is the Gorilla even there?!
You can choose your attitude, can’t you? After all, it’s not what happens to you, it’s what YOU do about it!
The attitude vs. behaviour conundrum.
Know what you control and what you don’t!
Richard’s book Jolt! provides the burst of fresh thinking needed to upgrade yourself from ordinary to extraordinary.
Are your habits and limiting beliefs holding you back in your professional and personal life? Are you stuck stagnating in your comfort zone? What you need is a jolt…
