What some of our clients are saying:

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.”

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.”

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

Amy Castronova

President, Novatek Communications

I have had the privilege of working with Bobbie for 10 years through the Women’s Presidents Organization and personal coaching from time to time. Bobbie is one of the most intuitive and insightful people I know. She can see, feel, and identify core issues faster than anyone I’ve worked with and has a vast toolbox of strategies, methods, and teachings that bring the perfect amount of structure and heart. She’s the first person I go to when I’m unclear because she has a wonderful way of holding space, challenging your thinking, and providing resources for you to find the way.

Maria Livingston

Marketing Manager, Tetra Tech Architects and Engineers

“Every one-on-one session with Bobbie Goheen targeted a different career challenge – personnel, leadership, task management, prioritization were a few. With each meeting, Bobbie really listened to understand my short term goals, long term objectives and immediate challenges and helped develop platforms and solutions to each issue discussed. Her depth of experience working with a wide-variety of professionals was evident with every recommendation and improvement she suggested.”
