Why p2r?

Because leaders rarely reach their potential without intentional help along the way

We help organizational leaders and business owners bridge the gap between where they are and where they aspire to be.

Professionally, this translates into increased impact and performance. Personally, it means decreased stress as well as increased clarity, purpose and overall well-being.

Our Approach

Through a personal conversation we’ll take the time to learn about you, your goals, your desires and your frustrations.  From there we’ll provide personalized executive coaching and/or leadership training to help you surpass your leadership limits.

You will gain:

  1. Increased awareness of the barriers keeping you from being where you want to be
  2. Increased clarity into the steps to take to move forward
  3. Support, accountability and encouragement along the way

As an Executive Director on the John Maxwell Team trained by John himself, we proudly integrate methods and content from the #1 leadership expert in the world into what we do to help you grow.

 

I've known Bob for just over a year, and in that time it has become abundantly clear that he possesses the key ingredient in having the ability to lead, and to teach leadership... That ingredient is that he genuinely cares about people. Not just people in general, but he cares about the individual. In my opinion, you cannot lead effectively unless the people you are attempting to lead, or teach for that matter, know in their heart that you care about them and their well being. You cannot fake your way through this either. I have found Bob to be a deeply caring individual as he is interested in hearing your story, interested in what makes you unique and interested in helping you become a better leader. Bob has become a good friend and confidant.

— Tony Dudek, Vice President IT, Autozone, Inc.

As you lead a growing organization, you soon realize that you must be growing yourself. Growing is difficult if you aren’t sure where and how to grow. While wrestling with some growth questions, I realized I needed someone to ask me the right questions. Bob has a way of pointing you gently in the right direction. He asks very specific questions that force you to go inside of yourself and have real dialog on growing as a leader. Consider talking with Bob if you lack clarity in any area of leadership.

— Elian Levatino, Partner, Benchmark Wealth Management

After 25 years as an SVP or above, including the past fifteen as a President and/or CEO, for the first time in my career, I decided that I would gain value from an executive coach. I interviewed several potential coaches, most of whom had held similar roles to mine but fairly quickly realized that I wasn’t looking for someone to tell me how to run a company – I am pretty confident in my abilities in that area. What I wanted was someone who would listen well, ask good questions and help me weigh through important decisions. Bob Willumsen was the perfect choice. Bob is an exceptionally good listener and incredibly gifted at framing questions that zero in on the core issues. In his role as coach, he hasn’t led or directed my thinking and decision making, instead he helped me to thoroughly evaluate important issues and decisions from all sides. I can recommend Bob without reservation.

— David Alexander, CEO, Trugreen

Bob Willumsen came highly recommend as an Executive coach and acted as a conduit between where I was and what I could become. Though I did not realize the need, Bob came at a time that I needed him the most. His coaching, counseling, accountability (required transparency and trust), and friendship helped shape and give clarity to my “3 Fs” (Faith, Family, & FedEx). He provided tangible and practical tools to guide my thoughts, decisions, transitions and purpose. Many of these tools have been shared and positively impacted my family, friends and FedEx colleagues. Today I can honestly say that Bob has become a trusted friend and confidant!”

— Don K, Director, FedEx

I had a clear vision of where I wanted to go with my business, but I needed some help to identify the steps to make it a reality. I needed a thought partner and that is where Bob came in. He has helped me not only take tremendous strides forward in executing on my vision, but has also challenged me to grow in all areas of my leadership. I feel like I have a greater understanding of how to take the ideas in my head and put them into action. Bob has helped me be clear and consistent in my message with my team rather than trying something new every month. I am confident that I have grown my leadership to a whole new level with my partnership with Bob.

— Scott Swindler, Owner/Operator, Chick-Fil-A

It is a pleasure to personally recommend Bob’s leadership training and executive coaching program. I have known Bob and his wife Christie for several years and have admired his integrity and thoughtfulness. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Bob discussing leadership, team building and time management skills. Bob has a unique skill set derived from both ten years in healthcare administration and eight years in pastoral ministry and non-profit leadership. This combination of business acumen and coaching expertise has gifted Bob in many ways. I have participated in other leadership programs over the years that have been beneficial, but none have been as effective for me as Bob’s tailored approach to one-on-one coaching. His insightful feedback and guidance have definitely helped me in both my professional and personal life

— Mark, Partner, Dixon Hughes Goodman

After spending twenty plus years in leadership, I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never fulfill their potential. For more than eight years, I've watched Bob coach all types of leaders, taking them from their potential to results. Every leader needs another leader to see their potential, speak it over them, and demand it from them. As a leader, when you grow, your team grows… and, consequently, your business will grow. Everything rises and falls on leadership. Hiring Bob as your coach is worth the investment.

— Chris Conlee, Lead Pastor, Highpoint Church

Bob has been a great friend and mentor to me over the past few years. He has been very instrumental in my growth. He has a gift when it comes to helping navigate my life and business. I know that no matter the situation Bob is available to help me think through and rationalize any situation that I face.

— Randy Griffith, Sales Director, Commercial Radiator Repair

My time with Bob helped me go from being a results driven & highly opinionated young manager to being a people-centric team builder & high capacity leader. It's incredible what you can do with a team of people that are loyal. Bob helped me be the kind of leader that can build and sustain a loyal team.

— Josh Maze, Creative Director, Highpoint Church
