Bob Schilling

Bob Schilling would be the coach of choice for senior executives of organisations with mission-critical mandates. These include public safety, vital installations and utilities and other strategic organisations, as well as corporations faced with the need for rapid and sustainable change.

Bob coaches top executives – regardless of their organisations’ business field or strategic mandate – in leading, managing and navigating through uncertain, volatile and intensely competitive times and environments. As executive coach, Bob’s approach focuses on people leading people; sustaining the critical awareness of self and situation needed in running operations and enterprises that leave little margin for error and unreliability.

Bob has also helped to train coaches in the US, Singapore and South Africa.
