Robert has been instrumental in helping me recognize my core values and applying them in my career. He has me thinking differently about how I communicate and combat the challenges in a male dominated workplace and career. He has me thinking outside of my comfort zone and I affectionately call it my “Business Therapy.” Thank you Robert!
Using the 10 Principles for Value-based Decision Making as a centerpiece of the process, I provide life and professional and career coaching for individuals and for groups. The focus of this intervention is to support you to:
- Get beyond personal, professional, even organizational challenges and “roadblocks” – situations or relationships that repeatedly produce the same disappointing, frustrating results.
- Develop an ability to access the important information that emotional honesty and emotional literacy can provide, and to leverage this information to create the change you desire.
- Recognize the conscious and unconscious biases that many times negatively influence the decisions and choices people make on a daily basis. Intentionally questioning this “misinformation” can strengthen communication and help build more effective working relationships, especially in our increasingly diverse, multi-generational workforce.
- Access “clearer” thinking even in the face of personal, professional and organizational challenges and roadblocks. Yes – clearer thinking that can lead to better choices, smarter behavior, more effective leadership, and in the end, enable you to make stronger value-based decisions.
I have heard Robert speak to senior HR executives on the topic of how organizations can effectively position the work of diversity and inclusion as a core element of their ability to remain innovative and competitive. His passion for the work and his expertise on the subject is highly informative and engaging.

The experience and expertise I gained from a combined 13 years “in house” as a Diversity & Inclusion Manager has enabled me to work effectively with companies and organizations on the full range of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) initiatives:
- Designing and facilitating dynamic anti-bias training programs to enhance the effectiveness of managers and workplace teams.
- Strengthening communication and cultural competency to positively affect team building, productivity, service, and care.
- Supporting organizations in their efforts to recruit, retain, and leverage diverse talent for the greatest creativity, and to drive innovation.
- Administering the systems assessment process that produces specific D&I related data to focus strategic planning, leadership coaching, and innovations in curriculum design and development.
