Over the past two decades with experience and through studies in leadership development, performance improvement, training delivery, coaching and change management, Robin became convinced that teams developing great questioning skills is the key to building a workforce of excellence.  Utilizing the Question First methodology allows a culture of innovation, creativity and learning to emerge.

Robin has trained over 25,000 hours in instructor-led classes and has the experience of sharing her message from coast to coast.  In addition, Robin has her undergraduate and graduate degree in theater arts where she perfected the art of presentation and exploratory games and activities.

Robin's successes include leadership development focusing on team building, time management, delegation, conflict resolution, public speaking and more.   In addition, Robin created and facilitated training for new hire orientation, leadership development and core classwork on Servant Leadership.  She has spoken at conferences and workshops on the subject of Servant Leadership throughout the country.  Whatever the subject matter, Robin finds ways to engage her audiences with the Question First philosophy. 

After pursuing an acting career on the East coast and after giving birth to her son, she discovered she could move anywhere in the world and she chose Austin and Central Texas to make her home.  She is delighted to be near her son and daughter-in-law and to be a best playmate for their amazing son, Jax.  At the age of two, Jax is a master of curiosity and courage.  Robin learns important lessons from him every time they “play hard.”  She looks forward to compassion being part of their lifelong continuing study together.

the Mission

To inspire today’s workforce to embrace change not fear it and act swiftly and wisely using curious, courageous, and compassionate questioning.

At the end of the day, the questions we ask of ourselves determine the type of people we will become.
