Executive Training and One on One Coaching for Leaders, Managers and Entrepreneurs

Dr. Bob Gonet:  The Career Expert You Need,
Discreetly At Your Side

Dr. Bob has proven to be an expert in developing and retaining top talent by individually coaching leaders and managers on how to create plans to more effectively achieve day-to-day, short-term and long-range goals. In his decades of executive coaching, he has worked with scores of professionals, all of whom:

(1) Have a great deal of LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL but are not maximizing their abilities. Although they are eager to advance in their careers, they are not achieving the results of which they are actually capable.

(2) Are NEWLY PROMOTED and are having difficulty navigating the transition to the next level. They are in unfamiliar territory. What they were accustomed to in their previous position is now much different, They are uneasy, off balance and are having a difficult time adjusting.

(3) Worry that their JOBS MAY BE IN JEOPARDY due to deficiencies in particular skills. They need to step up the learning curve, admit deficiencies, and fill in the gaps. When their skills are improved and utilized daily, there is a dramatic turnaround. And peace of mind. Both the employer and employee reap the benefits.


Identifying, Seeking, and Achieving Breakthrough Results

Dr. Bob’s one-on-one highly interactive approach and customized programs enable you and your company to develop unique ideas, fuel new initiatives, move ahead, and stay there. He has extensive real world experience in developing strategies and tactics to improve individual and team performance in highly specific areas, departmental groups, or throughout entire organizations regardless of size.

  • Creating a successful track record by increasing company sales, improving customer care, and enhancing individual/team performance productivity.


Developing Measureable, Results-oriented Plans

Dr. Bob’s executive coaching is based on specific goals and measurements. Increased performance, reduced turnover, new business, repeat customer business and increased sales are some areas that will be measured. Coaching to achieve these goals is the central focus. To maximize the return on investment in talented people, there will be clear, long-term goals set with specific short-term benchmarks, measureable action plans, and definitive deadlines. A pre-assessment and a post-assessment evaluation will be used, with interval benchmark checks throughout the coaching process to determine and analyze progress and effectiveness.


Meet Some of the Clients Dr. Bob Has Coached Successfully

Bill – A highly qualified CFO who is outstanding with the numbers and financials, but lacking in the area of staff relations. He is now very successful in all areas. Staff members in his sector, who were considering leaving the company, are now settled in and more productive due to the changes made in the CFO’s new interaction, focused meeting scenarios, and easier communications.

Joyce – A CEO in a Health Care company was once weak in the area of staff accountability. She was not setting clear goals nor was she was methodically holding her staff accountable. With Dr. Bob’s help, she has developed and consistently implements a goal-achieving accountability system in a very tactful and assertive manner where her own personality was not compromised.

Todd – A General Manager who, in the midst of one the worst inventory situations the company ever faced and an all-time low in staff morale, was able to turn around his organization and achieve record results. Because Dr. Bob helped him focus on top priority items and consistently take action, the impact of these efforts was immediate. In addition, the entire store began to view this GM as a person who is confident, capable and someone who can get things done.

  • Substantial increase in team performance. “Because Dr. Bob helped increase my performance, I am more effective with my own people in the way I manage and produce team results”
