  • Rob coached me twice. Both coaching sessions have been very helpful to me. Rob´s questions and analyses led me to emotional calm and clarity. He made me aware of the position of my collegue, with whom I had some dificulties. As he made me conscious of my options and limits in my professional situation, I felt capable of taking action again. I liked Rob´s calm and prudent manner. I felt understood by him and was impressed by his rich professional experience. I highly recommend Rob as a coach.
