“Robert might be one of Silicon Valley’s best-kept secrets.”

Robert Lang, former CEO, Socialbakers

“Robert might be one of Silicon Valley’s best-kept secrets. Rarely, I have met someone who was so quick to build a trusted relationship with. Granted, that Robert was introduced to me with very high recommendations, but then, many people do and Robert definitely exceeded my expectations. Even from our first meeting – a 2,5h walk through San Francisco, I took home very valuable feedback and questions to work on.”

“It is not often one gets to say that a single day can change a life, but that is what Robert did for me.”

Liesl Yearsley, CEO, a•kin

“It is not often one gets to say that a single day can change a life, but that is what Robert did for me. I am a seasoned CEO, regular public speaker on a global stage, have listed a company before, raised venture funding, launched tech products, have a bunch of patents, multiple successful exits…….but I was still struggling to have the impact I ought to have given that sort of track record. Robert helped me cut through the noise of my own ego to find my authentic self. I now stand with more power, awareness and fullness of presence. I would happily have ten days more…. and am happy to recommend him to anyone privileged enough to get to work with him.”

“In a word, Robert is extraordinary.”

Hillary Miller-Wise, Founder and former CEO, Tulaa

“I was fortunate enough to be an executive coaching client of Robert’s. In a word, Robert is extraordinary. His approach is rooted in a deep understanding of best practices in management and leadership combined with an exceptional emotional intelligence. There is no doubt that I am a better leader because of the support I received from Robert.”

“Robert not only simplifies concepts and effectively teaches about different mindsets, but he also demonstrates them in the way that he shows up, meets everyone where they are, and creates value for them.”

Sana Keshtkaran, Cross-Cultural Leadership Coach

​“In the past few months since I attended the Coaching from Essence program taught by Robert, I have found him to be very knowledgeable, generous, and authentic in his way of coaching, teaching, and just being! Participating in the program, receiving 1:1 coaching from Robert, and being part of a community of already thriving coaches has created a learning experience for me much more powerful than I imagined was possible. Robert not only simplifies concepts and effectively teaches about different mindsets, but he also demonstrates them in the way that he shows up, meets everyone where they are, and creates value for them. I highly recommend Robert to coaches, particularly in the executive and leadership development space, and also anyone who’s considering coaching and wants to build an authentic practice.”

Arielle Shnaidman, Executive Coach for Founders & Leaders

Robert is the most impactful coach I’ve ever worked with. He’s completely changed my life and my work. His style, wisdom, and values are something you don’t come across very often and I’m eternally grateful to have had the privilege to work with and learn from him.

“[Robert] will always meet you exactly where you are and provide exactly what you need.”

Thomas Doochin, former CEO, Daymaker

“At least weekly, I am sharing with a friend something Robert and I discovered on our journey. He is full of both present insight and kernels of wisdom. I have learned an immense amount about myself, our company, and my journey through my time with Robert. He helped me see and sort through a lot of my own noise, beliefs, and judgement… I feel confident in saying, through all of those, he will always meet you exactly where you are and provide exactly what you need. I am deeply grateful our paths crossed, and he held the space for me on my journey.”

“Robert’s coaching experience has been truly transformative for me…”

Avid Boustani, VP of Strategic Products, Turntide Technologies

“Robert’s coaching experience has been truly transformative for me as I’ve had the opportunity to brainstorm & seek guidance from Robert directly as a thinking partner, an honest mirror, and a trusted ally whose feedback I take into deliberate consideration…Robert continuously pushes me out of my comfort zone, encouraging me to become a bolder, more compassionate, open, servant leader & person…I leave our coaching sessions feeling uplifted, clear-headed, hyper-focused, and confident in my abilities to innovative & in making the world a better place. I’m reminded by Robert that we live in an abundant world with infinite opportunities to make our teams, our customers, our company, our world better & to lead with love & compassion.”

“To be stretched in my thinking, to be taken out of my comfort zone, to fall, to be caught, to laugh, to cry and to get up again awakened, that’s the real deal.”

Elisa French, PCC, Founding Partner, Ceeyana

“I had an idea Robert’s “Coaching From Essence” training was going to be one-of-a-kind, I never would’ve expected the wave of confidence and abundance that it did create though. As an executive coach of many years and what I thought were some fabulous tools in my backpack, the days spent with Robert felt like climbing the highest summit and returning with a treasure trove of profound learnings, tools and a sense of peace I haven’t had in years. It felt like Robert let us in to the best kept secrets of Executive Coaching, shared practices and mindsets I had only dreamed of and he was actually implementing and getting great results with. To come from your truest source, to serve from your very best essence and in return do the same for our clients, how inspiring! To be stretched in my thinking, to be taken out of my comfort zone, to fall, to be caught, to laugh, to cry and to get up again awakened, that’s the real deal. When its all delivered from the most humbling generous place that Robert created, its magic.

​From the get-go of making the decision to show up (amidst resistance – “I know I’m a good coach”, “I already get great results”, “I don’t need another coaching approach”), my business started dove-tailing from one new big client to another. I’m asking for high ticket prices, I’m delivering amazing work (client feedback) and I’m becoming more me, the best me I can be when living and working from my essence. Thank you Robert, from the bottom of my heart.”

“Robert is one of the most giving and knowledgeable people that I have come across in the coaching and executive development space.”

Jake Pereira, Business Operations | People Development

​“Robert is one of the most giving and knowledgeable people that I have come across in the coaching and executive development space. As a participant in Robert’s Coaching From Essence Program, I was amazed by the spectrum of practical/applicable knowledge encompassed by Roberts curriculum, his ability to make the complex simple and easy to understand, and the commitment to adding value to each participant. When you work with Robert, he goes the extra mile from the first conversation, to the event and beyond, to ensure that your experience is better than anticipated. Months after the event, Robert is still connecting to ensure that he shares key principles and is a resource to work through any questions in applying his teachings. Robert truly lives the principles of abundance and generosity. I highly recommend Robert’s Coaching From Essence program for coaches, leaders or anyone who is looking to create something extraordinary in their lives.”

JR Smith, former CEO, AVG; Partner, Evolution Equity Partners

“I look at Robert as an insider within my organization; he’s worked with all of my team and continues to contribute to our overall growth… I strongly recommend you use Robert if you are looking to mature as a top exec, strengthen your team, improve your strategic thinking ability, present like a celeb, sell or articulate your vision clearly and simply.”

“He knows when to ask the tough questions, when to leave space for reflection, and when to push harder.”

Rebecca Harrison, CEO, African Management Institute

“Robert is highly impactful as a leadership coach and I thoroughly enjoyed being coached by him. He knows when to ask the tough questions, when to leave space for reflection, and when to push harder. And he makes it fun. He helped me navigate a challenging transition from scrappy start-up into rapid growth, and coached me into becoming a more confident and effective leader. I’d highly recommend him for leadership coaching. ”

“Robert is an executive coach that cuts through the b.s. in the coaching field – I really appreciate his fresh approach.”

Vanessa Shaw, Momentous

“Robert is an executive coach that cuts through the b.s. in the coaching field – I really appreciated his fresh approach. He’s both empathetic and direct. While working with Robert my business become more focused, scaled up and my revenue increased 5x, best of all, I can see a vision more clearly for where I’m headed. The poignant questions and frameworks Robert used in our coaching time together have stuck with me, and I feel I can now self-coach my way through challenges. His Futurosity Continuum framework is in particular a powerful decision making resource I refer back to regularly that has provided impactful perspective on where to invest my time to get more of what I want. I can’t imagine where things would be for me if I hadn’t said “yes” to working with him at a pivotal moment in my career.”

“Robert is an incredibly talented and supportive coach and teacher.”

Peter Kovacs

“Robert is an incredibly talented and supportive coach and teacher. While many people focus on honing their craft and being the best they can be, Robert’s singular focus is on serving his students powerfully.

​He explains concepts clearly and concisely and uses a lot of role-playing and demonstration. He is receptive to his audience and relentlessly follows through with explanations and support as long as needed. He knows how to help his students “get” complex issues by adapting his delivery through various approaches.

“Robert is the grounding you want in your corner!”

Wendy Wecksell, WxL

“Robert is the grounding you want in your corner! When we started working together, I didn’t see myself as a coach at all, but he encouraged me to give it a shot, and give 50 coaching sessions to 50 different people. Because of his insights from that one session, my entire life changed and now I can say that I’m living in a place of profound purpose. I’m grateful to Robert, his wisdom, and his teachings!”
