Bob Davies      

Performance Coach, Author & Trainer

Since 1983, Bob Davies has used his considerable personal and professional experience as a leader to help people around the country become more confident and more productive . As a keynote speaker, author, trainer and coach, Davies has drawn upon the lessons he has accumulated, from his humble childhood roots to his successful career as a college football coach, in order to develop a system for improving lives based on clarity, focus and accountability.

Davies holds a Bachelor's degree in Health from Rutgers University and a Master's degree in Psychology from Springfield College. As a graduate assistant wrestling and football coach for Springfield, Mr. Davies worked with Jeff Blatnick, an athlete who would later win an Olympic gold medal in Greco-Roman wrestling.

After completing his graduate studies, Davies was hired as the head football and wrestling coach at the California Institute of Technology. During his time at Cal Tech, he also worked as a researcher, studying the work of Nobel Prize-winning Neuropsychologist Roger Sperry, whose work on split brain research has been highly influential in the development of techniques for elite performance. Bob continued to develop his coaching methodologies by researching a number of elite scientists in the field of human behavior, whose works helped to inspire his motivational techniques. After leaving Cal Tech in 1979, he accepted a position as an Assistant Coach of the California State University Fullerton football team.

The CSUF team's schedule was full of opposing teams that were composed of more talented athletes. The only chance Mr. Davies and the other coaches had of overcoming this disparity of expertise was to harness every drop of potential from their own players. As a staff, the coaches developed a template that would enable average athletes to perform at peak levels. That template would propel the CSUF team to two unlikely championships and continued to be used by Mr. Davies' colleagues, including NFL coach and broadcaster Steve Mariucci, Rich Ellerson, former head coach at Army and Richard Smith, 35+ years as an NFL assistant coach.

Using his coaching background and academic studies, Davies has studied and formed systems around strategic planning, time accountability, tracking, and creating systems that enable individuals to tap into the highest level of their potential. Mr. Davies' success in football is not the lone source of the wisdom that he brings to his audiences. He has overcome a number of challenges that have taught him valuable lessons that can be applied to anyone's personal or professional life. Growing up in poverty with a single parent presented a serious hurdle that required immense motivation to overcome.

In addition to his academic education and professional career, Davies has established an expertise in his field by developing a comprehensive set of relevant skills. He is a former practicing hypnotherapist, and he holds the highest credential available in the field of certified personal and professional coaching, Master Certified Coach. He has served on the board of the International Coaches Federation, the governing body for coaches, and previously served on the "ARC" committee, which certifies candidate credentials.

Davies is married to Jenifer and has three children, three dogs, is an instrument rated pilot and has the highest license in the sport of skydiving with over 2000 jumps, despite having a fear of heights.
