Coaching Clients

“Where would I be without Robert Carrow? Every time I look at my listing on Forbes 30 Under 30, I am reminded that none of it would have been possible without the training and skills that he instilled in me. What started as a simple coaching exercise manifested in real life. I met him just as I was preparing to lead my new business and he encouraged me to think differently about the way that I serve as a manager. His training has made me a better communicator and a more organized person. Because of this new way of thinking, I’ve dealt with obstacles more confidently and creatively. Robert does not just provide management and leadership training; he is a life coach who helps transforms you into the best that you can possibly be. He taught me a new way of thinking and for that I am forever grateful. I can’t recommend him more highly.”

“I was having no sales success in my public seminars and was even considering finding another line of work. But I decided to call Robert and ask if he would coach me, and after only two sessions I went out and had my best sales week ever. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!”
-Brent Pye

“I contacted Robert Carrow and asked him to coach me. After just one session with Robert it had an immediate and positive impact on my sales. He then helped me totally rework my presentation and taught me powerful sales and presentation skills that were easy to incorporate into my personality style. As I continue to improve upon my skills, Robert has the keen sense to make the right adjustments during the coaching process. Not only does he provide the practical tools to succeed, it’s apparent to me that he truly cares. He is available to me when I need his advice as to how to handle any challenging situation. Today my sales are steadily increasing, and I’m booked solid. If you’re a contract trainer who wants to increase sales, give more powerful presentations and reduce stress, contact Robert. I did, and it was one of the best career decisions I’ve ever made.”

“Robert Carrow is a passionate, dynamic, compassionate coach. I contracted with Robert to coach me in increasing my sales revenue and improving my presentation skills. Robert understood my unique personality and was able to tailor his coaching style to help me to be successful. He used various modes of communication to interact with me and ensured me that I could always contact him when I needed assistance, which increased my confidence. Robert Carrow goes above and beyond to ensure success for his clients. On one occasion he came to a site where I was presenting, which was not home for him nor I to observe my presentation style and to demonstrate how I could improve. This was invaluable for me. I increased my sales from our first session and will continue to use the tools he provides. All professionals benefit by having a great coach. Robert Carrow is a GREAT coach who I will continue to use and who I highly recommend.”

“Robert demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and integrity in the short period we worked together and contributed many new ideas to our group of supervisors and managers. Robert is an excellent trainer and I recommend him without reservation!”
-Robin Marley, SPHR
Human Resources Director
City of Fernandina Beach

“I am writing this correspondence as my personal endorsement of Robert Carrow and his recent assistance to my agency. I had arranged for leadership training to be conducted this year within our department. The supervisory staff in our agency had received many hours of in-service and supplemental training but the leaders had not benefited from group training. I felt it critical that my entire command and supervisory staff receive this training at the same time. I communicated at length with Robert as to our specific goals and problems. He brought a package that addressed all of this and more. Our agency grew in the fact that as the material was presented you could see your counterparts and peers absorbing these new skills as you were. Robert brought his law enforcement experience to bear but did not trip over it. He made it clear that successful people have people skills. He made it clear that this formula was valid in law enforcement as well as the business markets. I would be glad to speak to any agency that is considering utilizing Robert for future seminars.”
-Kevin Palmer

Association

“Robert Carrow was selected to be the Keynote speaker for our 81st annual Florida Public Human Resources Association (FPHRA) conference and he also facilitated a whole-day intensive session for our HR masters track.
Robert is surely one of the most effortlessly competent, intelligent and professional people I personally have ever met. His passion for motivating change and goal achievement is evident in his dynamic and energetic style by which he shares his knowledge with the audience. Robert presented an entire day’s worth of motivational and inspirational material and engaged his audience without the typical “reading from the PowerPoint” style that so many speakers become dependent upon. I unreservedly recommend this excellent coach and presenter to anyone contemplating a similar workshop or speaking engagement.”
-Jack Loring, President
Florida Public Human Resources Association (FPHRA)

Specifically, information on assessing customer/member personality styles before we try to sell to needs was especially enlightening. You inspired our employees to go deeper and learn about the member’s true issue, ask key questions, then move forward to solve problems. You did an exceptional job at addressing our needs!

“I would like to take a moment to personally thank you for coming to the National Geographic Society to conduct your seminar on becoming better communicators. I have attended several seminars of the same topic (with different instructors) and did not get a lot out of them. When I went to Baltimore to attend your seminar, I left there feeling like I could communicate and get the most from anyone! I knew my team would also have the same experience if I could get you to do an in-house class.
Fast forward a few months, I was able to get you to come to NGS. I was hopeful my team would get even halve as much from the class as I did, as some were not there voluntarily. I was amazed that every single person in the group was extremely happy to have gotten the opportunity to meet and attend your seminar! Since you have left, I have noticed a difference in the communication level with my team! Thank you again, you are truly an excellent, energetic speaker who knows how to keep everyone’s interest, and teach them how to become better communicators.”
-Frank Candore
National Geographic Society

-Alan Boord

“I attended Robert’s Communication workshop last fall. I had attended a similar workshop 20 years ago. Being young at the time, I failed to realize the importance of different communication styles & the significant effect my style (direct) has on other people & my work. Robert is very insightful & energetic. He pegged me as a direct communicator the moment I walked into the room! He is an engaging coach & instructor & brings great enthusiasm & positivity to the discussion. The workshop was much more than I expected & this time the message stuck. My learning was elevated as a result of Robert’s facilitation of the class and the interactive tactics he uses to coach others. I highly recommend his services.”
-Stacy Meadows

“Robert. Just a quick e-mail to let you know I am still using the techniques I acquired. I had a redress with my superiors yesterday prior to the redress I had been listening to the CD’s about resolving conflict while I travel. The session lasted 4 hours. Prior to the session I wrote a resolution to the situation. After having discussed all of the issues that needed to be addressed, I had almost forgotten about the resolution. In my one on one with the mediator I remembered the resolution, whipped it out for her review, discussed a few changes and basically got what I wanted from the session. Now that’s not only God but reinforced training as you reiterated in your training. Again, I say thank you!”
-Yasmin Harris

“Hello Robert. Just a note to let thank you and let you know that after training last week I stopped in Borders Books and picked up Covey’s book. I have continued to read and re-read each day with the exception of one because I was traveling to pick up my sick grandson. Applying the principles, you taught and reading the book has assisted me in being more proactive than I have been in a long time. I see the results of the reinforced training. At present I am concentrating on a mission statement and trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. Again, thank you so much for your teaching and motivation.”

“I want to thank you for being an asset to my life. You can tell that you are a man of GOD. I thank you for yielding your life unto him and being used to bless many of people. Your class on last Thursday and Friday was truly outstanding. When I got to prayer on Saturday, the elder’s scripture was based on the one you used about the keys. What a confirmation. You were sent as an angel to me. Not only did you minister to me in the working world, but my own personal life as well. Please know that you are a blessing to many of people Robert, and your passion for what you do is so obvious. Thanks again and may the peace of God and his FAVOR MANIFEST in your everyday life.”
