A widely respected top coach and thought leader, he has been hailed as an executive coaching pioneer, published author and recognized authority on executive coaching, leadership development, and organizational learning.

The success of Robert’s coaching is built on four strengths: his significant business background and results orientation, his direct leadership experience, a deep expertise in executive coaching and leadership development, and his passion for helping leaders and managers to learn, to grow, to change, and to succeed. Robert seeks to leverage these strengths to help his clients lead more effective organizations and live better lives.

Robert’s collaboration with clients is enhanced by his 30+ years of experience in business. His significant work experience ranges from building small business startups, to leadership roles in large organizations, and as a trusted business advisor to senior executives and outside boards. He has direct experience in dealing with organizational issues from the top of organizations on down, and has worked in the public and private sectors in both America and abroad.

Robert is the lead author of Four Essential Ways that Coaching Can Help Executives, a best-seller from the Center for Creative Leadership, and a contributor to Organization Change: A Comprehensive Reader and The Wisdom of Coaching: Essential Papers in Consulting Psychology for a World of Change.

A lifelong learner, Robert has completed continuing education at the Center for Creative Leadership, the National Training Laboratories (NTL) Institute, and Georgetown University, where he holds a certificate in organization development.
