What some of our clients are saying:

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”
