Those who know Bob well would describe him in the following three ways:
1. Business Owner- Entrepreneur
Bob began his journey as an entrepreneur at age ten as a paper boy and won a subscription contest. During his teen years, Bob had a profit-sharing project with his tobacco farming uncle, and a 4-H Club dairy project which provided income from the milk he sold to neighbors. His efforts paid off with a scholarship to NC State and getting a job at the college dairy farm while pursuing a degree in Ag Business. Prior to graduation, Bob was consulting 35 local dairy farmers to improve their profitability. By age 25, he established a business providing dairy farmers with labor-saving equipment that enabled them to operate more efficiently and further improve profitability.
2. Author, Consultant, and Executive Coach
In 1975, Bob established Effectiveness, Inc implementing Peter Drucker’s timeless principles from his best-selling book, The Effective Executive. Bob is the creator of The Effectiveness Coach® Process and The Value Accelerator Roadmap which includes a revolutionary business assessment that can readily pinpoint major profit impacts within any business. This business growth model is ideal for business owners who have a vision of creating a multi-million-dollar business that fuels their passion to achieve personal, financial, and professional freedom. These areas are often overlooked by the vast majority of business owners and are subsequently costing them hundreds of thousands of dollars every year.
Bob is a highly credentialed Master Certified Coach (MCC), Certified Management Consultant (CMC), and Value Builder Advisor (CVBA). Additionally, Bob and his team have developed a series of Talent, Team, and Leadership Development programs for business owners and professionals who prefer a do-it-yourself or done-with-you model.
