Friday, March 19th, 11 AM to 2 PM PDT

Shifting from a past orientation to a future orientation full of possibilities, so you and your clients can create something better than you can imagine.

Saturday, March 20th, 9 AM to Noon PDT and 1 PM to 4 PM PDT

Essencework, edgework, and the core coaching skills. You’ll learn lots of models and frameworks, a shared language for creation and transformation.

Sunday, March 21th, 9 AM to Noon PDT and 1 PM to 4 PM PDT

How to create a flourishing practice full of ideal clients: dream sessions, enrollment conversations, agreements, networking, and how to talk about money.



You’ll learn how to discover your essence, your way of being in the world that creates value for others without any thought or effort on your part. When you work from your essence, coaching is easy, natural, and fun. You’ll love your clients and your work will have a profound impact.

You’ll learn a mindset, skillset, and toolset for coaching from essence. Can you really learn all that on a long weekend? Yes. I’ll share the 20% of the things I do that get 80% of the results I get. Whether you’ve never coached before or you’re already an experienced coach, you’ll learn how to get powerful results and take your current skills to the next level.

You’ll learn how to create a thriving coaching practice, one that sustains you both personally and financially. It saddens me that I know so many great coaches, powerful people with so much to contribute, but they don’t know how to manage clients and get paid what they’re worth. I can’t guarantee you’ll make as much money as I do as a coach, but if you’re willing to do the work, you’ll no longer have to wonder what it takes.

You’ll learn exactly what to do, what to say, and how to keep your clients happy so you can love what you do, do powerful work, and make more money than ever.



I’ve been a management trainer, consultant, and executive coach for over 30 years. Like many coaches, I was dissatisfied with my coaching practice.

Most of my engagements were short-lived, transactional relationships.

I kept a professional distance in my coaching and didn’t feel I could show up as my authentic self, or coach from my essence (my natural way of being and creating value in the world).

I worked with anyone who was willing to pay. I had no idea who my ideal client was or how to create a practice full of clients I loved.

I was doing okay financially. Then I learned about coaches who charged many times what I charged. Their clients were happy to pay because the coaches knew how to do deep work that had a profound impact.

Four years ago, I completely reinvented the way I practice as a coach. I call my approach, Coaching From Essence.

Now I create deep personal and professional transformation with my clients.

I show up authentically as a full human being.

I’ve coached several of my clients for a year—or more. They view me as a trusted partner.

My practice is almost 100% referral. I’m turning clients away.

I make more money than I’ve ever made before (multiple six-figures) and a full practice for me is less than a dozen clients (and because I love working with entrepreneurs who are just starting out, as many as a third of those clients have been pro bono).


“In the past few months since I attended the Coaching from Essence program taught by Robert, I have found him to be very knowledgeable, generous, and authentic in his way of coaching, teaching, and just being! Participating in the program, receiving 1:1 coaching from Robert, and being part of a community of already thriving coaches has created a learning experience for me much more powerful than I imagined was possible. Robert not only simplifies concepts and effectively teaches about different mindsets, but he also demonstrates them in the way that he shows up, meets everyone where they are, and creates value for them. I highly recommend Robert to coaches, particularly in the executive and leadership development space, and also anyone who’s considering coaching and wants to build an authentic practice.”

“Working with Robert has been truly transformational experience. His depth of experience, insights and whole hearted approach have both helped support and challenge me in ways that have made me a better leader, husband, father and friend. I can say without a doubt my life is richer as a result of knowing Robert.”

Doug Erwin, SVP Entrepreneurial Development, Reno, Nevada

“I had an idea Robert's "Coaching From Essence" training was going to be one-of-a-kind, I never would’ve expected the wave of confidence and abundance that it did create though. As an executive coach of many years and what I thought were some fabulous tools in my backpack, the days spent with Robert felt like climbing the highest summit and returning with a treasure trove of profound learnings, tools and a sense of peace I haven’t had in years. It felt like Robert let us in to the best kept secrets of Executive Coaching, shared practices and mindsets I had only dreamed of and he was actually implementing and getting great results with. To come from your truest source, to serve from your very best essence and in return do the same for our clients, how inspiring! To be stretched in my thinking, to be taken out of my comfort zone, to fall, to be caught, to laugh, to cry and to get up again awakened, that’s the real deal. When its all delivered from the most humbling generous place that Robert created, its magic.

From the get-go of making the decision to show up (amidst resistance - “I know I’m a good coach”, “I already get great results”, “I don’t need another coaching approach”), my business started dove-tailing from one new big client to another. I’m asking for high ticket prices, I’m delivering amazing work (client feedback) and I’m becoming more me, the best me I can be when living and working from my essence. Thank you Robert, from the bottom of my heart.”

“Robert is an executive coach that cuts through the b.s. in the coaching field - I really appreciated his fresh approach. He's both empathetic and direct. While working with Robert my business become more focused, scaled up and my revenue increased 5x, best of all, I can see a vision more clearly for where I'm headed. The poignant questions and frameworks Robert used in our coaching time together have stuck with me, and I feel I can now self-coach my way through challenges. His Futurosity Continuum framework is in particular a powerful decision making resource I refer back to regularly that has provided impactful perspective on where to invest my time to get more of what I want. I can't imagine where things would be for me if I hadn't said "yes" to working with him at a pivotal moment in my career. If you've never worked with a coach or you are looking for the next level of growth for yourself or business - Robert is someone you absolutely need to talk to.”

“Robert is an incredibly talented and supportive coach and teacher. While many people focus on honing their craft and being the best they can be, Robert's singular focus is on serving his students powerfully.

He explains concepts clearly and concisely and uses a lot of role-playing and demonstration. He is receptive to his audience and relentlessly follows through with explanations and support as long as needed. He knows how to help his students "get" complex issues by adapting his delivery through various approaches.

He brings to bear 30+ years in the field and a lifetime of experience as well as a singular talent. As he often says, everything is on the table - he shows up fully with everything he is and everything he has, and his students are better for it.

“Robert is one of the most giving and knowledgeable people that I have come across in the coaching and executive development space. As a participant in Robert's Coaching From Essence Program, I was amazed by the spectrum of practical/applicable knowledge encompassed by Roberts curriculum, his ability to make the complex simple and easy to understand, and the commitment to adding value to each participant. When you work with Robert, he goes the extra mile from the first conversation, to the event and beyond, to ensure that your experience is better than anticipated. Months after the event, Robert is still connecting to ensure that he shares key principles and is a resource to work through any questions in applying his teachings. Robert truly lives the principles of abundance and generosity. I highly recommend Robert's Coaching From Essence program for coaches, leaders or anyone who is looking to create something extraordinary in their lives.”
