“Rob’s considerable wisdom and experience in leading institutions and people to their highest performance is enhanced by his ability to listen and empathize.  By his words and example, he makes you want to pursue excellence.  Watching and learning from him as a board member was professionally exhilarating and personally inspiring.”

Elizabeth Catlin, JD, Board Chair, Brattleboro Retreat 

“After observing his outstanding executive and leadership skills as a CEO of one of the largest psychiatric hospitals in the United States, I chose Rob 7 years ago to co-lead the Senior Executive Leadership (SEL) forum with me at the Global Institute for Leadership Development (GILD). SEL is a 5 day intensive Group Forum that focuses on leadership challenges unique to executives at the top of the organization who come from many of the largest corporations in the world, including Avis Budget, ARC Financial, WestJet, Starbucks, etc. Additionally, Rob has been working with me for the past 7 years in a variety of senior executive mentoring and coaching roles across the globe. He is a seasoned top executive who understands the significant challenges that leaders face, but more importantly he possesses unique abilities to enable leaders in a group context to work with other leaders to take their executive game to a new level.”

Phil Harkins, Chairman Linkage, Inc.

“I have the good fortune to have known Dr. Rob Simpson and his work over many years as a colleague, Board Member, GILD participant and as a fellow CEO. Rob greatly expanded my knowledge of organizational development and my own development as a leader. Rob perfectly blends his personal leadership experience and the best literature on leadership, personal development, and organizational health. Rob has inspired me and everyone around him to grow and develop, to use our limited time on this earth to be a positive force for the good.”

Michael P. Krupa, Ed.D., CEO and Founder, Health Partners New England, TaraVista Behavioral Health Center

“Rob Simpson has an extremely rare combination skill set. He has all the experiences, relationships and mettle of a Vermont CEO. He’s a truly gifted executive coach, as well as a creator of environments of trust among executives and teams. From those places of authenticity can come leaps forward in performance. His leadership of a CEO Mentoring Program among a confidential CEO peer group is a novel, winning format with the potential to knock out of the park any previous leadership coaching.”
