Bob Tiede Show Notes

Bob Tiede had an Executive Vice President volunteer to fund raise for the organization he worked for. After two years he resigned. Shortly after that Bob learned the reason he resigned. It was because Bob was a benevolent teller. Listen to Bob’s story of how he learned a new way to move onward and upward faster.

Bob grew up on a farm in South Dakota where he earned his PHD at age 9!  That is when his Dad conferred on him the title of PHD standing for Post Hole Digger after he successfully dug his very first post hole all by himself.

Bob grew up in a very close extended family.  His Dad and his 3 brothers and 1 sister all had farms within 5 miles of each other.  All five families along with Grandpa and Grandma went to the same church and Bob and all of cousins attended the same school from grades 1-12!

Bob Tiede graduated from the University of South Dakota in 1971 where both he and his wife Sherry became involved with a Christian Student Movement now called Cru.

Upon Graduation they joined the staff of Cru where they have now served for 45 years. Bob serves on the Leadership Development Team – Developing the next generation of leaders for Cru.  Bob says, “In 15-20 years almost all of our current Cru leaders will no longer be leading. In their places will be the leaders we are now developing. If we fail now – Cru does not fail today or tomorrow – but may fail 15-20 years from now.

Bob’s role on Cru’s Leadership Development team is to recruit outstanding leaders from business, education, government & medicine, military and non-profits to coach Cru leaders every other week via SKYPE video.

In 2012 Bob started his blog LeadingWithQuestions.com, along with other social media efforts, as a way to better connect with his target audience: Cru’s emerging leaders who are 20 and 30-something. Today, his blog provides a continued source of new tools (new questions) for all of Cru’s Coaches and Leaders and is viewed by leaders in more than 170 countries.

Bob and his wife, Sherry, are proud parents of 4 adult children and super proud grandparents of six incredible grandchildren – all of whom love to ask their Papa Bob questions!
