Robert helps Colleges, Universities and High Schools empower their students to make EXCELLENT DECISIONS, decisions based on vision and values rather than the incredible stress and pressure that students are faced with today. 

On campus problems like…

* Binge Drinking
* Drugs
* Sex and Sexual Assault
* On and Off-Line Bullying
* Discrimination
* Cheating
* Suicide

…are more serious than ever.  And all of these problems are caused by DECISIONS made by students.  Too often students are making their most important decisions based on the huge stress and pressure they are under:

* Peer Pressure
* Parental Pressure
* Academic Pressure
* Social Pressure

Robert’s solution focused, experiential, fun and highly interactive workshops combined with thorough follow up with students and staff empower students to make decisions driven by something far more valuable than external pressures:  Vision and Values.

This profound work empowers students to deal effectively with the significant social and academic challenges of higher education.  It helps them get clear on their mission, vision, values and purpose, learn how to effectively deal with rejection and accept acknowledgement, and take full responsibility for all of their results and experiences.  Most importantly, engaging in this conversation enables students to achieve at a very high level AND take full advantage of the many opportunities available to them while they are in school AND be fully prepared to thrive in the “real world”.

“You certainly made a significant impact on the students
who came to your presentation and drop-in hours.”
