I consulted with Robert because I wanted advices other than the people who knew me. Someone, I could trust & would help me realize where I was in life. I was very pleased with Robert's views. I finds it easy to confide myself and remembered how I felt energized after seeing him. Now I'm doing what I really wanted to do and I'm very happy. When I'll need advice about myself, I will consult with him again, first.
Thank you Robert !

During a big transition time in my life, I started working with Robert to gain clarity and perspective to help me make some important decisions. He was instrumental in helping me structure my thoughts and ideas, refine my identity and move forward on my journey with certainty. Robert has an incredible ability to get to the source of a situation or dilemma, and has a knack for helping people exploit their own creativity and approach to solutions!

After a difficult period with my business and personal life, Robert was extremely helpful in guiding me to find joy in my work and peace with myself. He opened my eyes about a lot of ways to lead and to trust. When I think back on how I felt when I first walked in compared to one year later, I am impressed at how much change a person can go through when they are being guided by the right person.

MONTREAL GAZETTE SPECIAL REPORT: Read about Celia Ostroff’s coaching experience with Robert.

I really like Robert’s approach. He’s great if you’re unable to see where to start, or not sure what’s holding you back. Robert pays attention. He is a thorough listener with an infectious upbeat manner and offers a casual and comfortable atmosphere. He will energize your intentions and help you get excited about your dreams again. I have achieved many victories with the help of his coaching and have great momentum for getting more done. I highly recommend him.”   – Joni D., Technical Writer
