"I partnered with Rob to develop an innovative training program for our scientist-managers and directors. The reason for this is we felt a need for a program that went much deeper than a traditional “manager fundamentals” workshop. By crafting an eight month program where groups of nine managers meet once a month for four hours, we were able to create “learning circles.” This means close-knit cohorts who build trust during the course and use each other as resources and sounding boards, etc.
The “secret sauce” if you will, is the expert facilitation that Rob brings to each and every session. He has impeccable experience, models, frameworks and methodologies to help our managers learn the nuances to become expert people managers. He is able to create a trusting, fun, upbeat and motivational culture. The proof is in the pudding: the surveys that we have done after each session and after each year are off the charts! 4.7 out of 5, 4.9 out of 5, 5 out of 5! This is not a culture that gives good scores easily.
I highly recommend Rob for this and the other work that he is known for. I assure you, he will exceed your expectations as he has done for me.
Senior Global HR Professional
"Over the last 5 years Rob and I have worked together within two different Fortune 500 companies. Recently, Rob advised one of our key business segments to establish a strategic plan. He was instrumental in helping the Senior Team align and develop an innovative growth plan, which is targeted to triple growth over the next several years. Rob is a consummate professional. His approachable and genuine style is unique and invaluable."

"I have partnered with Rob Fazio, on various initiatives for a decade. His global experience in banking comes through, especially when working with senior executives and senior leaders. Rob is someone who tailors his solutions and services to the culture and the priorities of the business. We were able to count on him to deliver what we needed, when we needed it."
Capital One, Chief of Staff, Retail and Direct Banking
"As a chief medical officer (and in my former role as Vice Chair of an academic medical department) I have complete confidence in Dr. Fazio's ability to partner with a physician leader. He is focused on accelerating the development of leaders to adapt to their new role, and to help less effective medical leaders to recognize their vulnerabilities/ opportunities. He combines candor with care and helps doctors develop concrete plans to improve self-awareness and effect change in their own leadership styles. Rob quickly engenders trust of the senior leadership team as well as the individuals being coached. He is the consummate professional and I truly enjoyed working with him to help my docs. In fact, I have drawn on my experiences with Rob to begin to team with him to educate fellow CMO s about using his coaching styles as a tool to manage challenging physicians."

Chief Medical Officer, Akron Children’s Hospital
"Senior level leaders can understandably be resistant to coaching and getting advice from an outside professional. Rob is able to build the connection quickly and in a way that executives respect. His versatility around coaching high potential leaders as well as his partnership on executive team off sites have been a valuable resource. While he is able to provide frank and objective advice, he does it with an emphasis on what is critical to the business. He can be trusted as a true partner with his main focus on moving the business forward."
Vice President, Sunoco Logistics
"Rob Fazio from OnPoint Advising has the rare ability to balance relationships with results. He took the time to understand the priorities and speed of our business to be aligned with our critical objectives. His expertise in making emotional intelligence and effective communication strategies practical was right on target. I hope more of our future executives get to work with him."
Human Resources and Talent Management, Comcast
"Rob Fazio with OnPoint Advising understands how to strengthen business through empowering and coaching people. His style and approach to facilitating sessions with high potential employees and senior leaders is very effective. I had Rob at both my Chicago and Cincinnati sales offices and my employees asked for additional follow up sessions. My teams entered the room not sure what to expect and they left the room asking "what is next." Over the years he has proven to be a trusted advisor that I can rely on to help drive the business the forward. He is an excellent resource to educate sales teams on thought leadership, managerial competencies and consultative selling techniques. Rob Fazio is someone who I would recommend to any professional business that wants to move their employees and leadership team from average to excellent."
