He has led his seminar, “Story as Leadership, Story as Strategy,” throughout the U.S. with clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to rapidly expanding small business enterprises.  As a thought leader in the field of narrative communication, he writes often. His recent book, The Elements of Persuasion (HarperCollins), co-authored with Richard Maxwell, was nominated as one of the top business books of 2007 and has been translated into 14 languages. He has also written articles for The Systems Thinking Journal and Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Reflections Journal. 

 

Robert holds a BA from Goddard College and is a graduate of the Hudson Institute’s program in organizational coaching and is certified as a coach by The International Coaching Federation. He has been an active participant at The Society for Organizational Learning’s community of coaching practitioners. He brings a unique, entertaining and pragmatic perspective to his clients. Robert teaches leaders how to integrate thoughts and emotions into powerful stories, which move audiences to take action.  Discussing his skill at getting great performances out of even the most difficult talent, and helping to prepare writers and directors for the pressures of press tours, two-time Academy Award Winner Gene Hackman said, “Bob is a powerful and intuitive coach. If you want to change fast, work with him.”
