Professional CoachingAs an enthusiastic facilitator, adult teacher, certified life coach, and past Toastmaster’s member, Bob enjoys public speaking and has authored and facilitated hundreds of corporate and community seminars, classes, workshops, and conferences – primarily centered on improving leadership skills for growth and achievement (*refer to list below).

He has successfully completed required Strength Based Performance classes at Gallup University and is fully certified (FNT246).  His coaching inspires leaders to apply strengths, pioneer vision, share ownership, clearly communicate, and show compassion for employees.

He has a proven record of interfacing and inspiring managers – where combined strengths improve the bottom line.

His development process is effective: discovery and application of strengths, infusing core values, integrating soft skills, setting critical initiatives, breaking through obstacles, and celebrating achievement. He has mentored countless leaders and believes that tenured leaders mentoring new leaders is a winning strategy.

Motivated by serving and inspiring leaders, Bob focuses on triumphing through trials, demonstrating endurance, building character and ensuring future hope.
