Richard Juman, Psy.D.

Healthcare Executive, Psychologist, Consultant, Writer

Dr. Juman is a prime example of the “Accidental CEO”, a clinical psychologist who grew a successful healthcare company into one of the largest of its type, eventually employing hundreds of psychologists and treating thousands of patients. In consulting with other health care providers over many years, Dr. Juman has found that leadership and cultural issues, rather than business issues, separate the successful organizations from those that flounder. Along with Dr. Allen, Dr. Juman created Insight Business Works as a vehicle for using his expertise in psychology, organizational development, team building, emotional intelligence and corporate culture in a broader arena. Dr. Juman has broad experience in health care management, organizational consulting and training, strategic planning, corporate culture, addiction issues, business dynamics, and human factor issues in small to mid-sized organizations.
Dr. Juman has helped many of my high-powered executive clients overcome serious stuck points and move forward on their career path. He is a master at helping people regain confidence in their abilities, redefine their goals, and execute a plan to achieve those goals.
