Bob Faw’s concepts in Energize clearly resonate with his readers. His clarity of message and sharing of personal stories provide great insights on how to apply these concepts to both your personal and professional life. I have worked with Bob for almost 10 years, and his energy and enthusiasm for conveying these concepts to others is contagious. He can relate to all audiences, has the ability to make these teachings come to life and has a spirit of enthusiasm that is second to none.

This book has truly hit on a topic that is so critical and timely to organizational health and leadership success. Bob Faw has taken very technical scientific concepts and described them in such practical terms. I can relate to these lessons as a leader, as well as on a personal level. The book will definitely be a resource I will use in our professional development, change management, engagement, diversity/inclusion and leadership development initiatives at the University.

We chose Bob Faw to help launch our leadership development program at the Red Cross. What a great choice! His creative approaches to helping young leaders first understand and then develop the skills and behaviors they will need to be successful have made the program a huge success. His message of positive change is one that is not only eagerly received, but critically needed in today’s highly competitive, ever-changing business environment.

Bob Faw’s book “Energize” reaffirms his technique on the importance of looking at various scenarios and life differently to get results you want. Bob was instrumental to our team at the Front Door Agency as we embarked upon a new strategic vision for the agency. His ability to lead us in a new way of thinking promoted positive team work and helped us realize all the things we did well to promote self-sufficiency. Change is never easy, but with Bob’s help he helped me as CEO to create a culture of positive change and an environment where all my employees were engaged and invigorated! Bob has a true gift of keeping his audience engaged when he speaks and provides the motivation necessary for people to adapt to situations currently affecting their life. In reading his book, it reaffirms how simple it can be to bring about positive change. One of the best things that happened to me as a CEO was meeting Bob and hiring him to work with my team.
