What some of our clients are saying:

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.”

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.

Maria Livingston

Marketing Manager, Tetra Tech Architects and Engineers

“Working with a group of very different upper-level managers on a monthly basis, Bobbie Goheen helped develop a synthesis within a very diverse team. With 18 individuals, Bobbie was successful in fostering our group’s understanding of each others thought processes, uniqueness’s, and sensitivities; and through that led our diverse team of thinkers to cohesively to maximize creativity, leadership, and camaraderie. Bobbie’s knowledge and expertise leading large and diverse management groups is beyond compare.”

Mark Onisk

“Bobbie was contracted as our executive development coach during 2006-2007. I found her coaching approaches and group facilitation to be particularly effective in helping me develop as a leader and executive. Bobbie developed strong relationships with everyone on our team and prescribed thought-provoking activities that helped the group come together and allowed us all to develop as leaders. Her 1:1 coaching sessions were particularly helpful. I would personally recommend Bobbie for similar professional development initiatives.”
