Charlene Mike-Billstrom, Vice President, Global Customer Service at DigiCert, Inc.
Given his experience in leadership training, I asked Bob to develop and deliver a success planning and leadership skills training for my direct report team. Bob demonstrated his expertise, flexibility and business acumen in the development of this training. Despite a very short lead time, Bob was able to translate my needs into an engaging workshop. My whole team agreed that the session was helpful and a very good use of time. They were so pleased with the session, that they requested to have Bob conduct a similar session with their teams.

I have had the distinct benefit of working with Bob for the last two years and can attest to his outstanding coaching skills and approach. Bob coached me several times on matters relating to career direction and growth. We were able to quickly focus on my goals and understanding my “story,” which directly led to how and where to direct my next efforts. This not only saved me time, but made me more productive. Additionally, I participated in several leadership sessions where Bob facilitated group discussions. These sessions proved to be critical to the company during a time of immense change. Bob deftly worked with leaders at all levels to address critical areas around managing change, and leading these efforts with courage.

Bob was my leadership coach for several months. He played a vital part in my development progress, willing to meet and adjust his schedule to match my mine. He was a great mentor and motivator throughout, always prepared with relevant material. He offered guidance in areas most important to me: effective leadership skills, career growth, body language, and others. He also helped me immensely in focusing career goals. I created a brand statement and success stories for all my work to date, giving a completely new dimension to my progress. I shared this with business partners and senior leaders, to showcase my contributions. Bob thoroughly reviewed my 360 degree feedback and spent time with me to identify immediate challenges, understand how my leadership style is perceived, and suggested how I might achieve even more effectiveness. When I asked for specific guidance, we brainstormed relevant options, a collaboration that yielded very positive outcomes. I admire Bob's expertise, experience and style and feel fortunate to have had him as my coach - I will continue to connect with him as a coach and mentor!

Bob and I collaborated as leaders at Experience Unlimited, working together closely to improve and deliver workshop content to over 200 Bay Area professionals, all in major career transition. We supported the executive directors in improving teamwork and effectiveness through constant change. Bob has a long history of success in delivering excellent results in a variety of roles in top-tier companies in Silicon Valley. I observed his talent and skills in leadership, coaching, facilitation, and out of-the-box thinking in many challenging situations we faced. An exceptional presenter, Bob takes the time to prepare and polish his sessions. Consequently, his workshops always received the highest scores in participant evaluations. As a coach, he has keen listening skills and freely shares his wealth of experience to guide clients through tough challenges and decisions. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a high level of expertise!

I attended several of Bob's leadership training courses and grew an appreciation for his natural ability to make meaningful connections with individuals, as well as with the class as a whole. He's able to balance technical content and business objectives, while not losing site of the human element each person brings to the learning experience. His energy, passion, and deep experience distinguish Bob as a great facilitator of leadership training and career development.
