Coaching qualifications:

“I don’t think I can write everything I want to say about Robyn in this little box that LinkedIn gives me. So I’ll create a list:

  1. She has a highly developed skill at helping you hone in on what’s blocking you from progressing forward.
  2. She’s kind and supportive but won’t let you off the hook easily. After all, she’s there to help you achieve your goals.
  3. She’s very well read and intelligent. She can provide psychological insights to your behaviour that can help you blow right past your blocks.

Her Quick Hits show is a fun but highly practical way to get you thinking about different life topics through the views of different participants. Worth listening to. And worth participating in.

Every moment I’ve spent with Robyn (which is several hours now) has been energizing, insightful, supportive, and remarkable.”
