“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.”

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.

“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.”

“Bobbie has tremendous capacity to see core issues surrounding business dilemmas making her a very capable coach. She is genuinely concerned with her clients success and will utilize all of her resources to help them reach their goals. I am always impressed at how intuitive she is and how she can apply her knowledge of DISC, Birkman and other personality tests to help me understand the best way to communicate with my employees. Her insight has proven invaluable not only with HR issues but also with system development and sales management. I am very grateful to have found a coach with such a strong skill set.”
