What some of our clients are saying:

Rochester Institute of Technology

Student - EMBA Program

“Bobbie is a fantastic leader who demonstrates her skills through her own examples and behaviors. Her teachings come from real experience. She is a very credible source and a wealth of knowledge.”

Stacey L.T. Boyle, Ph.D.

Chief People Planner @Smarter People Planning

Even though Bobbie was an outsider to my organization she fully understood the terrain I had to navigate and did her homework. She was an exceptional Executive Coach and would provide a unique perspective that I often needed to stay grounded. She would provide honest, compassionate feedback and truly had my best interest at heart. She offered multiple solutions which afforded me many options depending on a specific situation. I really felt like I was locked-n-loaded after I had a conversation with her. I like that she would role-play and help me anticipate scenarios that I could not see. Having worked with her I was far more confident making executive decisions and handling tough employee situations. I was always anxious to meet with her because I knew she would take me to task on follow up from our last conversation so I would prepare before our meetings so I didn’t let her down. It never failed that the amount of effort I put into our sessions was returned three-fold after interacting with Bobbie. She is exceptionally professional and I would highly recommend her to any organization seeking a deeply skilled, creative, and compassionate Executive Coach.

“Bobbie Goheen is an important part of my professional life. She is one of the resources I use to outsource the business management focus of my career. It is easy to spend time serving clients 100% of the day, but in order to grow it is critical to carve out time to look at my practice to ensure that I am continuing to grow and be able to deliver the best possible value to those clients. Through Bobbie, I develop strategies and accountabilities to ensure that I am moving forward to better serve my clients and myself. The combination of her insight, experience, and methodology is a powerful tool for a professional who wishes to be at the top of his/her game.”

Kathy Palokoff

CEO, CustomerCity

“What I get over and over again from people who meet Bobbie is her presence, humanity and ability to get to the heart of the matter.”

Dawn VanDamme

CEO, NimbleUser; creators of Nimble AMS

“Bobbie has facilitated our management team meetings and she has also helped me as a business coach. Her thought process and her ability to look at the whole organization and see what is needed to foster success is incredible. I always look forward to hearing her thoughts and especially her questions.”
