Brigitte Hyler Richerson

Tell us a little about yourself.

I am a proud Milwaukee native, wife and mother. My mission in life to help others and organizations reach their fullest potential.

What attracted you to the field of Talent Development?

Talent Development allows me to help others succeed. At heart I am a servant leader. Being a leader in Talent Development and Organizational Development space put me in contact with both emerging and seasoned leaders. My super power is helping others uncover their super powers and providing guidance on how to use those powers to the fullest.

What prompted you to join SEWI-ATD?

I am looking to re-engage with other OD, TD an Culture geeks! I love learning new trends and tactics that others are practicing within their various disciplines.

In what ways have you been involved with the chapter? 

I’ve just reengaged with the chapter. I am looking forward to developing new relationships!

What piece of advice would you offer to people coming into talent development?

Discover what you love to do and do it. Find mentors and coaches who will guide you through your journey and do not be afraid to take on the “big” assignments. You can do it.

What do you do for fun? 

For fun, I love spending time with my family and friends, bike riding, shopping, and traveling. I’m an upbeat person by nature so I simply enjoy life.

Favorite Blog or Podcast?

My favorite podcast is, The Leadership Antidote by Dr. Kim Hires.


If Hollywood made a movie of your life; who would you like to see play the lead role as you?

I can see Taraji P. Henson playing the role of Brigitte Hyler Richerson – LOL!
