Bob Willumsen spent the first 12 years of his career in the hospital industry, working his way to the position of Chief Operating Officer of a major suburban hospital. During that tenure he also served as an operations consultant, helping hospital executive teams across the country find ways to work more effectively, producing measurable results for their organizations.
Following his career in healthcare Bob transitioned into mission-based nonprofit leadership. Across the globe he trained and coached 1000+ organizational leaders, professionals, and young adults to improve their leadership skills – beginning with self-leadership (the toughest form of leadership) and moving from there to how they influence people around them.
In today’s podcast Bob addresses issues like lack of confidence, difficulty with decision making, inability to take risk, and all the internal factors that keep us from reaching personal and professional goals. Bob speaks about the value of coaching in leadership, and the difference a great coach can make in the life of a leader.
