For more than three decades, Robb Thompson has inspired people around the world to live their dreams in business, life and in their relationships. His principles of excellence have improved the lives of tens of thousands, saving marriages, resurrecting careers and inspiring those burdened with frustration, despair or anxiety to achieve previously unimaginable heights.
Robb is the best-selling author of more than 30 books. His book “Critical Laws of Relationships” demonstrates the path to happiness and success in relationships, how to overcome hostility, improve communication and eliminate roadblocks. The 2008 best seller “Solitary Refinement” identified the need for quiet, meditative “alone time” years before meditation became the latest go-to for solving the problems of our ‘always on’ society.
His 2012 book “The Elephant in the Room” showed how humans are inclined to avoid difficult truths and the consequences in individual lives and to society of denying the need for change. He shares practical, easy to implement techniques to lead self-conscious, ethical lives of excellence and peace.
Robb is also a recognized authority on relationship building, personal development and successful leadership in the business world. In “Your Passport to Promotion”, Robb shares the little known but easily understood principles for success in small businesses or the largest corporate environments. The principles that made this book a success form the foundation for his conferences, training seminars and coaching sessions.
He is an in-demand speaker who travels the world coaching, training and mentoring entrepreneurs, senior executives, sales organizations and visionaries in the non-profit sector. His high-energy, soul-touching coaching sessions leave attendees energized, confident and more disciplined, prepared to execute at new levels of performance for lasting excellence.
Robb is also a philanthropist and humanitarian. Through his efforts and the work of the organizations he founded or advises, tens of thousands of poor, sick, hungry or suffering men, women and children have been helped in Uganda, Russia, India, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Mexico and Haiti. Whether it is medical or dental care, education, food, shelter and clothing in a crisis, or supporting the efforts of other organizations, Robb and his team are working every day to impact the lives of those most in need.
Long before the 2008 economic crisis revealed the integrity gap in Washington, the banks and on WallStreet, Robb was traveling the world explaining the desperate need for deep commitments to integrity in relationships and business. Commitments to strong leadership processes without living principles of ethics and integrity inevitably leads to destruction, both at the personal level, within business and society, as well as governments. This need to focus on the character building of each individual-from the newest member of an organization to its CEO-is central to success and longevity within any organization, whether a venture-backed startup, a mature Fortune 100 organization or a fledgling mission group in Africa.
