“Teacher, Mentor, Coach, Counselor, Speaker, Presenter, Author, Leader, Mom, Friend; All apt descriptions for Robynn Coates, all roles she fills at times in our area, our school district, and community. Having had the opportunity to work with Robynn as a high school teacher and counselor for many years, I observed the willingness and ability to bring people together. She possesses intangible, charismatic qualities that draw people to listen and think.
Mrs. Coates left our school district to devote more time to being a mother and wife; however, during this time she continues to expand the repertoire of skills she brings to an organization as a consultant, presenter, or speaker. Robynn is a certified John Maxwell trainer/coach and has been willing to train teacher leaders in our area. In January, 2016 Mrs. Coates presented two workshops at the Southeast Kansas Ed Camp on Intentional Living and Understanding Your Personality. Over 300 teachers, administrators, and teacher leaders were in attendance at this event. SEK EdCamp surveys indicated these sessions received the highest attendance and best reviews.
Does your staff or team need a morale boost or additional motivation? I highly recommend Robynn Coates for your next training event, in-service, or luncheon.”

"As an Executive Director of a non-profit agency, I am always looking for training opportunities that will benefit our employees. Recently, I had Robynn Coates, a certified John Maxwell Speaker, Trainer and Peace Coach, visit our program for trainings once a week over several weeks and the results were tremendous. Leadership is a very difficult task and Robynn broke it down into one hour trainings that were easy to remember and execute in our daily work environment. Her trainings were interactive, productive and kept everyone engaged throughout the process. I would recommend her trainings to anyone.”
Tim Cunningham (Executive Director of Tri-Valley Developmental Services)
"Lara and Robynn spoke at a Chanute Chamber Ambassadors luncheon and did an outstanding job of utilizing the principles and ideas of “Peace With Food” for a business setting. Their examples were perfect for use personally or professionally. Both were engaging and informative. I would highly recommend having Lara and Robynn speak to your group or at your event."
