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.

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.

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 an unique skillset 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

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.

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.

"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another"…this is the essence of the Mastermind Group I'm participating in being facilitated by Bob Willumsen. Being a part of this group has allowed for reflection, rejuvenation and refinement; I’m thankful for being a part of the group and look forward to more conversations as I walk my personal path in adding value and helping others in this world.
