Engineering Director, Facebook

In my role the hours were grueling. It’s easy to overschedule and get overwhelmed. I wanted more work-life balance, manage my team more constructively, and communicate more effectively with my colleagues. Bob created a coaching framework that helped me achieve all those goals.

I learned how to advocate for my point of view without creating unnecessary flash. You can confidently stand your ground without alienating others. It’s quite the opposite actually. By getting clear on your role, vision, and desired outcomes, you can find alignment with others. Now getting to an agreement is faster and a more pleasant process.
