What our alumni say

The Ethics Class was excellent. Robert, you made a formerly dry perfunctory subject into a multi-faceted fascinating subject. Thank you ever so much. This was totally worth it!

Dale Davison

Robert encouraged us to never lose sight of the ethics, competencies and humble curiosity that are foundational to professional coaching. I am grateful to Robert, the Positive Acorn team and my fellow Positive Acorn classmates (several of whom are now friends) for co-creating this exceptional learning experience.
