I enjoyed how receptive Roberto was in our conversations while offering direct feedback with no fluff or excuses. He helped me with a structured development plan and a post-coaching plan. He coached me to understand what was missing and the resources available to bridge the gap, then role-play everything before applying it with my team. All this helped me increase my self-confidence as a leader, letting go of needing full control while building trust in the team. I also learned to recognize my emotional triggers, and overall, I transformed into a trusted advisor and leader that is visible to those around me.

Roberto pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me really think through the problems I was trying to solve. He challenged me effectively and called me out when I was incongruent or getting complacent.

Roberto helped me uncover the underlying causes and reasons for why I was struggling in certain aspects of my professional and personal life. More importantly, he helped me put together a plan to address the root causes. This helped me believe in my own abilities and I feel a lot more self-assured and confident.

Roberto was an essential asset at a tumultuous time in my career (and the world.) I've been able to dial in on my 1:1 coaching, having a broader view of the goings-on of the team, as well as focus on my needs (work/life balance)
You cared for everyone and remembered everyone's character clearly.
You are able to get the entire class engaged and involved.
You are an excellent facilitator with a very clear road map, organized everything in an easy to follow way.
You inspired me in many cases by sharing your extensive experience and stories.
Roberto was the best coach. I really appreciated his honesty with me and empathy. He gave me the
necessary tools to grow myself and my team, being a better listener and practicing delegation. I even have a better relationship with my manager.
I appreciate him so much.

I liked how people decided to trust the group and start sharing information. I believe this was partly inspired by the coach. Roberto is an amazing coach. One of the best I have seen. The lack of judgement and active listening are parts I would like to use more. Having a coach like Roberto would be very good.
I liked the easiness in communicating and active listening mode that was evident. There was also a sense of trust in sharing information.
Roberto is a very pleasant person to interact with, so the discussion flow was friendly
The tools we used allowed me to reflect on the different attitudes I experience in my daily work and to recognize the need to be more conscious.

There aren't many people that I feel at ease with enough to seek advice on sensitive topics - Roberto is one of those individuals I trust. I was lucky enough to work with Roberto at ServiceSource for over two years. He is such an approachable person and really takes time to listen. He always provides sound advice, and most importantly takes into account the personality, strengths and communication style of the person he is talking to. I've also attended soft-skills workshops delivered by Roberto, and as a trainer myself, I always appreciate his ability to engage people and break down barriers even in the most uncomfortable of situations. As a coach/mentor for leaders or teams, Roberto has my highest recommendation.
