Coach Bob Kiser
Bob Kiser, author of “Create the Life of Your Dreams,” is a speaker, leadership coach, and mediator. His work centers around helping people let go of fear to embody all they can be. Each week, Bob and his guests explore how events in their life that, at first glance, seemed to throw them off course actually turned out to be "Perfect Detours" to success.
Bob's own journey began with being sexually abused as a child, given up for adoption at age 15, and then crippled with addiction issues as a young adult. As he sought a new way to live, he found numerous mentors who literally saved his life over the years. Previously having felt lost and unsure of what he wanted, today Bob is dedicated to passing on the healing experiences he received to those embarking on their own healing journeys.
Having been a co-founder of several For-Profit and Not-for-Profit corporations, Bob has been a speaker for a variety of national and international audiences. Besides his private coaching practice, Bob also serves as the Associate Director of the Simulation and Integrative Learning Institute in the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is also a mediator for UIC through the Office of Access and Equity.
