Rick Loofs

Whether an individual, a couple, or an organizational leader, my mission is to help you function at the highest possible level. Joy and success in your work and personal life are within reach. I want to help you achieve this! Couples are welcome to request coaching with just me, or me and my wife of 30+ years, Trudy (also a trained coach).

For more than 30 years in the corporate world, I have helped dozens of organizations and individuals reach their goals, find fulfillment, and achieve more professionally and personally. I understand well the challenges of business as an accomplished executive successful in building teams of leaders and healthy organizational cultures. You can draw upon extensive leadership experience in areas including Operations, Engineering, Business Development (M&A), and Human Resources.

Serving in various ministries and non-profit organizations along the way has provided insight into how to successfully integrate all aspects of life and avoid becoming overwhelmed. Since 2015, I have led marriage enrichment programs alongside my wife Trudy. We have invested in hundreds of couples, witnessing incredible transformation in their marriage relationships. We have also taught pre-teen parenting classes and served as camp counselors, mentors and spiritual coaches to teens and young adults. In addition, we are the proud parents of four wonderful sons and three incredible daughters-in-love!

Client Testimonials:

I began meeting with Rick to get help with my vocational goals and achieve greater success at work. Our sessions evolved over time to include guidance in my personal life as well. From the beginning, our conversations flowed easily, and I instantly found him wise and compassionate yet focused on helping me clarify and reach my goals. 

I tend to exhibit self-doubt and some painful life situations have negatively impacted my professional and personal development. Rick led me on a path of understanding how to utilize these experiences as opportunities to gain strength mentally, spiritually and emotionally. He has a knack for asking the right questions! He also held me accountable to pursuing the aspirations I set for myself. I am more confident and purposeful now and have a greater understanding that every area of my life is linked together.

Rick and I began to meet as a way for me to clarify and understand our organizational needs and brainstorm solutions to existing challenges as well as address any gaps in my own professional skillset.  Through our discussions, I always felt heard and not judged.  When I might have felt very passionate about a topic, Rick always had an ability to approach the situation in a calm and reassuring way that let me explore my perspective and lead me to also consider other options.

I have grown both professionally and personally from my interactions with Rick.  I am grateful to have many Christ centered discussions and feel like those helped me to remember to keep an eternal perspective when I was focused on the crisis at hand.  I believe that I am the leader and business owner today because of the lessons that I learned during our time together.
