"Working with Bob, during what has been one of the most challenging times in my life, has been a blessing. I sought a “business coach”, through what was at the time, a major business transition in my life. What I have received in the several months since, is a personal confidant. There have been times in my life, due to various stressors, that I simply needed someone to talk to. Bob, has provided that. However, along the way, he’s also provided much more. While I’m still very much a work in progress, I feel like I’ve made major strides in a number of areas. Every one of us has “stuff” that needs to be worked out. I find myself over long periods of time continuing to accumulate stuff, while rarely being able to trim it down. I.e., I take on too much, internalize too many interactions, hold on to baggage that weighs me down. Working regularly with Bob has helped me to better understand myself. Working to prioritize what’s truly important in life, and dedicate personal resources to that end, requires focus, commitment, and clarity. Things that are hard to come by without doing the hard work and drilling down to the core of what makes us who we are. I’m (now) better able to objectively assess my strengths and weaknesses. I’ve become more patient and understanding in my interactions with those around me. I now spend more time listening with purpose, and a true wanting to understand, rather than hearing people while attempting to formulate a response. I’ve always genuinely cared about those around me, but have carried so much weight over the years, that my responses in conversation can easily come off as irritable, as I’m quickly moving on to the next thing.
I want to make a positive impact in the lives of others, but I need focus and clarity to best understand how my actions are received by those I’m trying to serve. What I didn’t understand is that in order to serve others, I have to serve myself first.
I have more to do but I've come a long way since working with Bob.

""Transformational Coach" isn't just a title for Bob Groves, it's a mission statement. I've worked with Bob one-on-one, in a small group mastermind and in larger group events and can recommend his work without hesitation. He zeroes in on the core of whatever you bring to the table, and draws out solutions that are as simple as they are sophisticated. The results of my work with him include dramatically improved clarity, movement in areas I was previously stuck, and increased income and opportunity due to his coaching and accountability.
