About Bob

StrengthsFinder coaching that unlocks and enhances the true talent of leaders and teams. Our goal is to help develop strong leaders and healthy teams while increasing engagement and productivity.

Are you ready to unlock and enhance your talent and/or the talent of your team?

I became a coach because I am passionate about developing transformational leaders and healthy teams. Organizations need both to succeed. My coaching and team workshops will focus on what you need for the challenges you face.

My coaching will help you:

Understand your Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment and what makes you unique. Discover how your strengths make you frustrated and what they need to be fulfilled. Ability to identify the strengths of others. Get unstuck by using strength innovation. Use your strengths for conflict management. Manage weaknesses and identify blind spots. Create goals. Grow in confidence. Have a greater impact as a leader.

My team workshops packages include:

Pre-workshop coaching with the manager Overview of the Clifton Strengths and the importance of being a strength-based team. Break-out activities to help team members learn how their strengths affect other people and how they can better work together. Ideas on how your team could be better aligned, engaged and productive through strengths. Practical simulations that apply specifically to your teams. Tools and Materials to move forward as a strength-based organization. Follow-up coaching session with the manager.

Email me at and let's get started!

When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, Legos and watching the Chicago Cubs and Bears.

I would love to connect with you and learn more about your story and needs.
