His company is based in Narberth, Pa., in the Main Line suburbs of Philadelphia. But his clients include both domestic and international companies in India, England, and Latin America.
“Everyone needs a voice in the room at work, needs to be influential and listened to,” Bob says. “This promotes workplace engagement and commitment to a company’s vision and goals. And that, in turn, leads to increased productivity, top line revenue growth and bottom line profitability.” A native of Maine, Bob has a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College, a master’s degree in management and administration from Antioch University, and a Master’s in Clinical Social Work from Bryn Mawr College.

“My original plan was to study law and go into politics,” Bob says. “I figured I might lose an election or two and the law was my backup plan. In hindsight, it wasn’t a particularly good way to choose a career.”
After working for a variety of candidates and in a number of businesses, Bob developed a strong sense of what makes a good leader and decided that this would be his life’s work.
“I had a bit of the old time politician in me that lingers to this day in my work as an executive coach,” he says.
“I believe in helping people and organizations change for the better and sustain that change over time.”
