What some of our clients are saying:

William Jacques

Chief Financial Officer at Catalyst

When I met Bobbie Goheen, I had just been promoted to CFO and she was the company’s executive coach. The executive team had been through significant changes due to the departures of a few key executives. One of Bobbie’s top priorities was to help the new team develop an effective work and communication style. To do this, she taught us to forget what we “knew” and to learn how to understand our own and each other’s needs and styles.

Bobbie helped the team through a difficult transition. She continued to be a valuable resource for the company and for me.

I highly recommend Bobbie Goheen to any company looking for an executive coach or going through a significant transition

“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.”

Eric Ansley

CEO

“Bobbie, is an excellent career coach. She is also an excellent strategist for developing senior level team and communication structures. The value of her work was far greater than the cost. My team and I will work with her again.”

Amy Castronova

President, Novatek Communications

I have had the privilege of working with Bobbie for 10 years through the Women’s Presidents Organization and personal coaching from time to time. Bobbie is one of the most intuitive and insightful people I know. She can see, feel, and identify core issues faster than anyone I’ve worked with and has a vast toolbox of strategies, methods, and teachings that bring the perfect amount of structure and heart. She’s the first person I go to when I’m unclear because she has a wonderful way of holding space, challenging your thinking, and providing resources for you to find the way.

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.”
