What some of our clients are saying:

Stacey L.T. Boyle, Ph.D.

Chief People Planner @Smarter People Planning

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.

Executive Vice President, Human Resources, One Communications

“Thank you for all your efforts. It is obvious you delivered results and we are a much more effective organization as a result”

Andrew Tempest

Regional Marketing Director at Gannett

“I worked with Bobbie as a leadership coach when I was with Element K. I have been involved in a number of programs previously at AT&T & EDS but working with Bobbie proved more effective than anything I had previously gone through. Years later I still put in practice the tools and strategies I learned from her program in my day-to-day activities.”

Xiang-Dong Mi

Sr Staff Engineer/Manager - Display Optics at Qualcomm

“Bobbie is an outstanding leadership coach. I enjoyed the time I had with her for 15 months during the EMBA program at RIT. I continue benefiting from her coaching even after I finished the program, through her newsletters and unique tools. For example, a traditional 360-degree leadership survey is initiated by managers and done anonymously at work. Bobbie’s way is to do it face-to-face at my own initiative any time I want, with not only my managers, co-workers, and reports, but also my family members and friends, and all focusing on elements of emotional intelligence.”

Chris Knight

Director of Marketing, Lightower

“Bobbie is a great leader and is fun to work with. She knows what the goals are and in our engagement with her, she led the team there but made sure that the team arrived at the destination in their own, unique way. Bobbie is an excellent facilitator and knows how to get the best from the people she works with. I would highly recommend Bobbie for a consulting or leadership role.”
