About The Corbett Group

I’m a certified executive coach with the International Coach Federation. Additionally, I’m certified in several assessment and consulting tools including, Myers-Briggs MBTI, FIRO-B, Lominger Voices 360, Genos EI 360, and Executive Team Alignment.

I’m Bob Corbett,
founder of The Corbett Group.
Welcome to my spot on the Web!

I’m a seasoned practitioner with 30+ years of experience in leadership, coaching and consulting roles in a variety of industries including manufacturing, technology, aerospace, healthcare, financial services, energy, and education. I’ve effectively managed cross-functional teams with as many as 90 members and in multiple countries.

My Story

My expertise includes board of directors level presentations, leadership and executive coaching, organization design and strategy, succession planning, management development, performance management, reward systems, talent acquisition systems, team performance, and meeting facilitation.

While this page is about me, my practice is really all about you. I’m a business generalist with Human Resources expertise. Consequently my focus on any assignment is first to thoroughly understand the nature and scope of your business – your vision, strategy, operations, challenges, the strengths and development needs of your management team, your customers and competitive environment.

Only by understanding your business and its critical elements can I recommend solutions that will really work for your business.

I earned a BS in Psychology, a MS in Industrial Relations and a MS in Organization Development from Loyola University in Chicago, Illinois.

More importantly than all that, however, is the experience I’ve gained in over 30 years, working inside organizations, developing my unique business acumen that, when combined with my training, produces extraordinary results for my clients.

When Bob and I worked together, in addition to effectively managing the day to day HR responsibilities of a fast growing services organization; he successfully created a management development program for the newly created leadership team. Bob was a very effective executive coach and made the effort to engage each of the leaders to build a culture based on values.
