Coaching and Consultation for Executives and Professionals

As a coach to executives and professionals, I am available to help clients deal with difficult co-workers, situations and systems. I work with my clients to clarify and prioritize their goals, increase their efficiency, and manage their time more effectively. Since coaching sessions can be conducted by telephone, I work with individuals from across the country.

My approach to coaching is informed by a broad diversity of experiences, including:

  • Starting up a venture-capital-funded company and building it to 100+ employees.
  • Serving as a corporate operating officer.
  • Working closely with engineers as well as business people.
  • Managing scores of employees in private and public work settings.
  • Working for a large strategic business consulting company.
  • Practicing as a psychologist for over twenty years.
  • Teaching and consulting in the area of understanding personality styles.

If you feel that my combination of professional experience is right for you as you consider a coach or consultant, please contact me at 650-368-0210 or rbgarvin@sbcglobal.net.
