What some of our clients are saying:

Jeff Bastow

Executive Coaching Client

“Bobbie’s insight and process were extremely helpful in my transition.She worked with me to consider all scenarios and then provided the necessary focus, streamlining my thoughts/actions in a positive direction.”

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.”

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.”

Patricia Brown, Ph.D.

Vice President, Enrollment Management, Daemen College

“My association with Synthesis Management Group includes both executive coaching and leadership training. I can honestly say that my leadership and organizational skills have been enhanced by the thoughtful and insightful process Bobbie has perfected.

William Jacques

Chief Financial Officer at Catalyst

When I met Bobbie Goheen, I had just been promoted to CFO and she was the company’s executive coach. The executive team had been through significant changes due to the departures of a few key executives. One of Bobbie’s top priorities was to help the new team develop an effective work and communication style. To do this, she taught us to forget what we “knew” and to learn how to understand our own and each other’s needs and styles.

Bobbie helped the team through a difficult transition. She continued to be a valuable resource for the company and for me.

I highly recommend Bobbie Goheen to any company looking for an executive coach or going through a significant transition
