What some of our clients are saying:

Executive Coaching Client

Financial Services Industry

“Bobbie Goheen is an important part of my professional life. She is one of the resources I use to outsource the business management focus of my career. It is easy to spend time serving clients 100% of the day, but in order to grow it is critical to carve out time to look at my practice to ensure that I am continuing to grow and be able to deliver the best possible value to those clients. Through Bobbie, I develop strategies and accountabilities to ensure that I am moving forward to better serve my clients and myself. The combination of her insight, experience, and methodology is a powerful tool for a professional who wishes to be at the top of his/her game.”

Maria Livingston

“Working with a group of very different upper-level managers on a monthly basis, Bobbie Goheen helped develop a synthesis within a very diverse team. With 18 individuals, Bobbie was successful in fostering our group’s understanding of each others thought processes, uniqueness’s, and sensitivities; and through that led our diverse team of thinkers to cohesively to maximize creativity, leadership, and camaraderie.

“Bobbie’s coaching services have been instrumental to our management team’s growth, development and success. As a firm with multiple offices across several states, the challenges of working cohesively as a team are immense. Bobbie helped us learn the lessons necessary to eliminate the barriers that were limiting our effectiveness. She helped us to see beyond ourselves, eliminate dysfunctional attitudes inherent in any office culture, and to embrace a greater vision as a cohesive team. We are extremely thankful to have worked with Bobbie, I would highly recommend her services to any business that is looking to improve.”

Mark Onisk

General Manager and Vice President, Books24x7 at Skillsoft

“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.”
