About Robert Hislop

Who am I and What is my Purpose?

I am an energetic and driven individual who Plans, Organizes and Strategies. I use these attributes to motivate and inspire others to do the things that inspire them. I am a critical thinker with strong analytical skills, and pride myself on being a servant leader who places people before task. It begins and ends with your mindset.


My role as a Coach is to be your Knowledge Worker/Thinking Partner who will work with you to be a catalyst for change. My definition of a Knowledge Worker/Thinking Partner is to develop solutions to challenging situations.

Engage, Connect, Serve & Learn

As a facilitator and enabler of change this may lead to a desired outcome of a current issue/situation or problem that an individual, organizations or community may be experiencing. To create a difference, I will show up and be present in the moment, emphatic and engage in active listening, by speaking or saying less and listening more.

Listen, Acknowledge & Validate

I believe that when I am silent, I will hear the challenges, issues and the pain points that are experienced and expressed.

  1. Where it is appropriate, I will articulate solutions to be contemplated.

  2. Next, we will create a strategy to bridge the gap from where you are now, your current situation versus what belief/assumptions you have about the future the current state plus the gap equals your future state.

  3. Through collaboration with me, you can reduce the gap between the two points by establishing an action plan.

My goal is to have a positive impact advising/Coaching individuals who want to excel in their career, have a fulfilling life and accomplish extraordinary things. Sometimes we need to realign our purpose, motivation, and intentions to be successful. Possibilities are endless.

Professional Athletes are not the only ones who will have a Coach by their side or on their team. People who are successful also have an individual who plays a supporting role as a confidant, who is respecting, cheering, and evangelizing for them to change for the better. A Coach will inspire and empower you to re-imagine your future, maximize your personal and professional performance by motivating and challenging you to excel.

Robert stepped in last minute when the first scheduled coach was unavailable for the booked appointment. He followed up and sent me useful links to articles germane to the conversation of negotiating an offer and best practices for transitioning. Definitely a great cheerleader and confidence booster.
