Bernard E. Robinson

After more than 30 years training more than 29,000 business and industry employees, supervisors, managers and executives at all organizational levels, I have perfected the consulting skills required and utilized the expertise and experience needed to provide solutions to my clients. This has included a wide array of projects, products and services that enabled them to improve their organizational and operational performance. As President of the Institute for Human Development for more than 29 years, I have used my performance improvement consulting skills to amass a wealth of practical knowledge about the topic of performance, in general, and leadership in particular. In addition to being an expert trainer and group facilitator, I am a leadership and business development expert and coach.

I am the author of “The Skills of an Effective Leader: Becoming a Leader Others Want to Follow,” and a member of the Institute of Management Consultants, and have earned certification as a Certified Management Consultant. I am a member of the Mentors Guild, which is a group for seasoned business experts, advisors and management consultants. The Institute was selected as one of the recipients of the 2010 Top 100 Minority Business Enterprise Awards in September 2010, an award that honors outstanding women and minority business owners in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware and the District of Columbia. The Institute was selected out of nearly 5,000 applicants.
