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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

Diana Augspurger

CEO, Creative Storage

“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.”
