Richard Tatem Bio

Richard Tatem is a retired US Air Force colonel with 30 years of experience on both active duty and in the reserves as a leader, educator, facilitator, and aviator. Now a professional facilitator, coach, and educator, Richard specializes in helping individuals and organizations become better versions of themselves–because better people and better organizations perform better, both in and out of the work environment. His work focuses on helping employees improve their commitment to their core values.

During his last military assignment, Richard was the senior facilitator and developer for the Enhancing Human Capital Seminar at the Air Force Profession of Arms Center of Excellence. He taught and facilitated for many years in both the government and civilian arenas. Senior leaders routinely request Richard by name for their leadership development programs because audiences rate him as “one of the most memorable briefers I’ve ever had!” and say he “changed my perspective and probably my life!”

Richard has led and worked with diverse organizations at the operational and strategic levels. He has managed a resource portfolio worth $410 million and led projects ranging from standing up new organizations to implementing national, inter-agency level security strategies.

A highly experienced public speaker, Richard is a professional-level member of the National Speakers Association. With a wide-ranging and international education in the humanities, psychology, and neurobiology, Richard brings an insightful and culturally rich perspective to his audiences. 

He has lived and worked overseas in multiple countries and cultures, was a university assistant professor, speaks French fluently, and has even been an airline pilot. In his spare time, Richard likes to “stand in a river waving a stick” (fly fishing) and to deepen his appreciation for Francophone culture.

Richard also uses the pen name “Justin American” is a pen name for
The Justin American Radio Show, airing Wednesdays from 8 - 9 pm ET on 1490 WWPR. 

Of his radio show he says, “(my) military service inspired (me) to learn more about what it really means to ‘support and defend the Constitution,’ the oath (I) took upon entry into the US military.” 

Now, Justin has decided to dedicate the rest of his life to teaching his fellow Americans, and those who aspire to become Americans, what the Founding Fathers’ core values, principles, and writings can teach us about living in America today.
