WHEN BRUCE ROBERTSON’S BUSINESS PARTNER OF 14 YEARS, Gabriel Shweiri, left BGI Worldwide to become a full-time college professor, Robertson worried that his lack of leadership skills would inhibit his ability to fuel the company’s growth.
“I needed to become a more approachable leader,” says Robertson, Managing Partner of BGI Worldwide, a global shipping leader based in Long Beach, Calif. “I hung leadership on Gabe for 13 years because he was a very approachable person and very easy to deal with.
Robertson didn’t know where to turn. Then one day a friend suggested a business coach. He started looking and found Steve Smith, Founder and President of GrowthSource Coaching in Lake Forest, Calif.
“A perfect match,” Robertson says.
Not only did Smith coach Robertson on how to become a more approachable and effective leader, he also guided Robertson through implementing a series of new processes across the company that enabled it to triple its margins.
