What They Say

Real Transformations, Genuine Feedback

Experience the transformative power of coaching through the voices of those who have journeyed with me. These testimonials from leaders and teams reflect the profound impact and growth experienced during our engagements.

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.

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. 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.

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.

Dilip Pillaipakam - VP at Infoblox

Roberto challenged us to think and take responsibility for our own development. It inspired me for the first time to really invest time and effort in myself.

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.

Tanner Churich - Senior Sale Manager - Yelp

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)

What Roberto is truly gifted at is bringing out the best in people as a Professional Development coach. He is great at helping people recognize their potential and using his skills to unleash their hidden talent.

Carol J. - Salesforce

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.

The facilitator was one of the best I've had. Roberto did an excellent job of engaging the participants and holding us accountable.

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.

Lexi Bucci - Recruiting Manager, Chegg

I am so grateful for Roberto. This program and his guidance have truly made the biggest impact on my leadership skills in my entire career.

Julia Darnton Healey, Director - Yelp

I learned how important empathy is in our workplace. We work in research we are "programmed" to see patients as numbers and just look for data so it is difficult to show empathy. The workshop changed my perspective.

Team Building Program - Tech

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.

Group Coaching Session

The coaching mindset module was one of my favorites. Learning how to slow down and listen to my team instead of constantly thinking of a quick reply has allowed me to better consider my team's ideas and perspectives.

Leadership For Managers Essentials

We all have tried influencing others in some way but based on instinct or experiences. This class helps name and identify the issues and tactics so that we can define them clearly, which helps with troubleshooting and implementing what is still lacking to accomplish our goals.
