What some of our clients are saying:

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.”

Jim Morris

Senior Vice President, Corporate Programs at eCornell

“I have worked with Bobbie Goheen as an executive coach for the past three years and have been delighted with the experience. She understands leadership, management and what it takes to drive financial results in a large organization. She is insightful, she is willing to challenge the status quo and she is focused on improving corporate leadership. Her external view of our organization allows her to offer unique perspectives and gives her the ability to act as an objective sounding board. Bobbie is part coach, part psychologist and part motivator. She is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her. If your company is considering an engagement with Bobbie, I would welcome the opportunity to act as her reference.”

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.”

Bill Cherry

Director Human Resources, Coopervision

“Bobbie uses assessment tools, combined with her business experience and people savvy to affect real improvements. I am impressed by the results we have seen using Synthesis and Bobbie Goheen.”

Linda S. Chapman
