What some of our clients are saying:

Maria Phillips

COO, SIXNET

“Bobbie is a creative and personable strategic consultant who knows how to structure a project for the best results. Bobbie is able to obtain valuable input from every level of the organization and to make even the most shy people participate vocally. Although Bobbie knows the answer, she skillfully guides her clients to come up with their own answer. She is an excellent facilitator. Bobbie knows how businesses should run and is keenly astute at recognizing executive talent. I would absolutely hire her again.”

Jeff Bastow

Executive Coaching Client

“Bobbie’s insight and process were extremely helpful in my transition.She worked with me to consider all scenarios and then provided the necessary focus, streamlining my thoughts/actions in a positive direction.”

Melinda Kaufman

Creating Service Cultures of Highly Engaged Employees

“I had the great privilege of meeting Bobbie through the Simon School Executive MBA program, and working with her has been an amazing experience. Bobbie has a way of helping me see both my strengths and weaknesses through different lenses, and helping me leverage them more effectively. She has wide-ranging knowledge and experience, and she is fully committed to the success of every person she coaches, regardless of their level or goals. I would recommend Bobbie to any manager or leader as someone who can help clarify both short and long term goals and put you on the path to success.”

Andrea Adair

Senior Account Executive at Gartner

“When I began working with Bobbie, my goal was to gain insights into my work life and avocations. At the outset, the two felt uncomfortably disparate. Through Bobbie’s expertise, I was able to gain a greater understanding of the kinds of interactions and activities most satisfying to me. These kinds of communications are available in many areas of my daily life. Keeping these types of activities at the forefront of my attention have created new integrations and alignments I would not have expected. Bobbie’s mentoring, through an open ended investigation, allowed this process to naturally unfold. The end result of discovering these self truths, with Bobbie’s insightful coaching, has been a turning point as I approach my own next steps with open hands.”

Sue Rodeman

VP Product Marketing at Skillsoft

“I had the privilege of working with Bobbie for many years as a participant in a Leadership Development program, through 1:1 coaching sessions, and while she helped facilitate our yearly strategic planning workshops. She truly understands the realities of leadership and guides her approach to the needs of the organization. She took the time to thoroughly understand our business, our personalities, and culture so that her tools and techniques could be most effective. I looked forward to her insights, humor, and grounding. Much of what I learned from and experienced through Bobbie I continue to leverage as new challenges come along. I highly recommend Bobbie as a leadership executive to organizations and individuals.”
