Meet Robin Perry

“Curiosity sparks learning. I thrive when I’m helping groups learn from one another, or in an individual conversation exploring challenges and solutions.“

MY BELIEFS & APPROACH ON LIFE AND BUSINESS

I have a strong belief that we can all “be better.” We do this when we learn more about ourselves, and about others – increasing our emotional intelligence. Learning opens new pathways.

I think everyone needs to believe in themselves – and this is a struggle for many. Balancing self-confidence and humility leads to great results.

I am an optimist, I have a “can do” attitude, I like change, and I like people. This combination means that I believe the people I work with can succeed if they put in the needed work.

My Story:  A Few Professional & Personal Highlights

We all have a story – highlights of our life – key moments that define us – challenges we face and overcome.  These stories evolve and gel, underscoring our values and crafting our journey.  I’m most interested in hearing about your journey – but here are some highlights of mine.

I’ve recently landed in Rock Hill, SC.  After raising two children in upstate New York, my husband and I are interested in sunnier days and shorter winters.  We’re excited to be here!

Over the past 20 years I’ve built a consulting practice with wonderful colleagues in the Albany, New York area.  Focusing on people leadership and team development, my “claim to fame” was creating a public leadership development program, #Leadwell.  To date, over 300 leaders have participated in the program increasing their people leadership skills.

Over time, my passion has changed from classroom type training to coaching and working with teams and small groups of leaders.  I find that when working with individuals and teams, I can focus on their specific needs – working with them to find their own solutions, and helping them learn along the way.

Learning is a big part of my story.  I am truly a lifelong learner, and I believe change and challenge provide great opportunities for learning.  With a few highlights below you’ll see that over the years I’ve often brought on my own change and challenges – and I’ve learned a lot!

After graduating from the University of New Hampshire, I initially took a “safe job” back in Albany – but it wasn’t where I wanted to be.  Two years in, I quit and moved to Boston.  I found a marketing job that involved regular travel.  I traveled much of the east coast – solo.  A huge learning experience!

After meeting my husband, we moved to Castleton, NY, to raise our family.  I transferred my marketing skills to training, and built a training department at an area HMO – Community Health Plan (CHP).

CHP was purchased by Kaiser Permenante. I had an opportunity to move into a Human Resources leadership position – excited to learn more.  Ultimately I moved into a role leading the day to day HR operation until the close of our division – a tremendous challenge.  Over a 12 month period of time we parted with 4,000 employees.  To this day I can say this closure was done well – thanks to a fantastic team and good leadership.  It was from this experience I knew I had knowledge and learnings to share with others – and I saw the importance of developing strong leaders and teams.  My consulting work began!

What I know:  we all face change and challenges.  The key is learning from those experiences and applying your learning to the next situation.  Working with a coach can help you learn more, and get through a challenge faster and smoother.  I’d like to be that coach!

Robin’s coaching has helped me grow, develop, and gain valuable insight from a professional and personal perspective.
