Terry Tillman lives on purpose. He is a Scout. In business, people talk about pushing the edge; in Terry's business, he just goes there. He's known for going the distance; that showed up in years of running marathons. And he likes to get a high altitude perspective on the issues and opportunities Life offers. He talks about this a lot in the professional and personal development seminars he designs and leads. And in the inspirational talks he gives. It makes sense that he's also a pilot.
When the Berlin wall came down, he went there the next day to photograph the graffiti and history, to talk to people, to find out what mattered to them, to touch the rubble that had been a prison. Then he brought photographs and their stories about hope and possibilities, about living life in freedom, back into his work. His international best-selling book and photo journalistic essay, “The Writings on the Wall”, tells this story.
His friends know he is a scout and adventurer--Like when he was one of the first ten non-Russians to visit and work in Omsk, Siberia (a center of Soviet Union military manufacturing) in 74 years just as Communism was falling. They flew (snuck) in on Military cargo planes. Omsk was a closed city (meaning residents didn’t leave and unauthorized people didn’t enter). He was invited to conduct Leadership Seminars there for Military Generals and Industry bosses.
Every summer, he takes off his suit, turns off the electronic gear, and heads for the wilderness. There, the work and play of 22/7 Company continues with a band of journeyers, adventurers, and yes, other people who scout uncharted places, inside and out. Terry’s the kind of guy who spends his time climbing two kinds of mountains...the big ones that live in places where the weather can change in a minute; the kind that demand reliable ropes and gear, and promise a wild rush when you get to the top. And, the other kind, the very ancient ones. These are the mountains you can't see, the ones that live inside your soul. In between treks, he teaches other people how to climb and how to know the majesty of the territory within.
The entrepreneurial Terry creates. He's made a lot of money, lost a lot of money, and always says its been an amazing ride no matter how the math came out or which side of that equation he's been on. He knows how to live in this world, and he knows how to get outside of this place.
At 15, it was manufacturing track hurdles, with internationally famous track coach Bill Bowerman, founder of Nike. Terry was always a top, “A”, student, and curious to learn about life. He was President of the honor society, quarterback on the football team and class Vice-President.
Then, a degree in Economics and Finance from Stanford University. In the '60's, he was part of the times changing...one of the Grammy award winning New Christy Minstrels band (yep, he was their original banjo player). He still hums to himself when he thinks. A sequence of business ventures over the last 30 years included membership in the Million Dollar Real Estate Sales Club, a real estate development, construction and sales firm, ownership in TV stations, a satellite cable business, and a video production company.
He now calls himself a recovering businessman. He turned in his Type A behavior in exchange for a life of service, Spiritual development, coaching, facilitating the growth of individuals and organizations and supporting people to what they say they want. He’s very good at that.
Today, through his 22/7 company, he conducts seminars and speaks internationally for groups of 50 – 15,000 participants, produces, designs and facilitates leadership trainings for organizations and the general public, and coaches executives all over the world—91 countries so far. Over 150,000 people have shared experiences and partnered with Terry in experiential, transformational learning. Terry's mission is to support and mentor people in producing the results they want, discovering their value, and realizing their dreams.
Graduates of Terry’s work often say, “I now know, from experience, that I can do anything!” He asks a lot of questions, like, “What would you be doing in your life if you were not afraid?” “If you looked back from 90 years old near the end of your life, is there anything you would regret or change?” and "Who are you and why are you here?" Clients get answers.
He holds a Master’s Certification in a Neuro-Linguistic Programming, having been trained by John Grinder, one of the founders of NLP. He holds a private pilot's license, has been a white water rafting guide, a ski instructor, and a marathon runner. He’s a member of the Transformational Leadership Council (from which came the movie “The Secret”). He has two grown daughters, who he says are two of his best friends. He has held offices with his local Rotary Club and is active in many community and church service projects.
And he still asks, “I wonder what I’m going to do when I grow up?”
