I’ve recently reflected on how powerful a coach you are. You managed to quickly and accurately assess my talents and then encourage me to “push the envelope” in a way that excited me! Please feel free to use this testimonial to encourage others to enlist your services and quickly advance toward their goals. – J.B.
Rob has the ability to make the difficult task of career planning interesting, insightful and fun. His enthusiasm for this work is both contagious and motivating. Through working with him, I was able to view unemployment, not as a disaster, but as an opportunity for self-exploration and career development. – J.C.
I had the opportunity to hire Rob as a career coach and it was one of the best decisions I made in my life. Since working with Rob I have been able to find roles, each progressing in responsibility, stature, compensation and aligning with my core strengths. I am now doing work that I have a passion for, and I am much better prepared for whatever my career and circumstances might throw at me. Prior to working with Rob I had read job searching books, like “What Color Is Your Parachute”, but Rob was able to make the advice in these books come alive and practical. And Rob added so much more than a book could ever add. Rob is a leading expert in the career development and lifestyle design field and I would highly recommend him to any organization or individual looking for help in these areas. – L.M.
Rob did some fabulous work for us while I was at Clarica. His work in the area of career development has significant a impact on our employees and on the overall climate of some of our functions, IT in particular. Rob is a passionate, insightful prationer in the area of career development. – H.S.
My confidence is growing by the week, especially since I have had some good support along the way. Each success I experience reinforces my decision to continue in this field. I know I can achieve much, and I just need to decide how much I want to take on.
I can’t say enough about the time I spent with you getting my feet back on the ground. And many of the lessons I have been able to pass on to members of my team as they work on structuring their careers. One detail that I did learn was that, as a manager, I am only successful if my team members are successful. That works whether they choose to move on to other challenges or stay and work with me. It is satisfying to know that they have learned enough to take on the new work and have outgrown the old. That’s success!
Happy with my work? Absolutely. Effective? At this point in time, I have choices to make in terms of which direction I want to move into. I would say that’s effective. You know you’re on the top of my list for recommendations! – C.A.
I have had the opportunity to witness Rob’s work first hand in his roles as a board member, consultant, facilitator, speaker and career counsellor.
Throughout these experiences, I found rob to be extremely proficient as both a facilitator and an educator. Rob has excellent leadership, communication and counselling skills that can be adapted to a variety of individual, planning, organization or educational settings. Rob is an excellent team player and can adapt to any situation as both a team member and a facilitator.
I have had the opportunity to learn from Rob in several settings and would recommend him as an educator, speaker, facilitator or career/life/role counsellor. I wish him well in all his endeavors. – G.W.
