Opportunity Group

The  Webster  Chamber  of  Commerce  is  excited  to  recognize  Bob  Freese  and  the  Opportunity Group as May’  s Business of the Month.                

After  18  years  of  intensive  corporate  growth  and  experience,  Bob  decided  to  focus  on  helping clients develop the fundamental architecture of their organization to enable success at all levels.  In 1997, he formed the Opportunity Group, where his tag line is ‘  Turning Opportunity Into Reality.’   Within the first year,  Bob  was  working  closely  with  groundbreaking  behavioral  specialists,  seminal  researchers  and others.  Their perspectives proved invaluable as Bob proceeded to build a powerful portfolio focusing on dynamic  human  behavior  development  and  its  application  to  success  for  organizational  leadership  and teams.  Besides  being  qualified  to  administer  multiple  psychological  instruments  as  part  of  his  passion, Bob  has  helped  build  multiple  leadership  development tools  in  conjunction  with  the  Masters  of Organizational Science program through Queens University.              

Bob  says, “ The  bottom  line  is  I  am  an  Organizational  Coach.  Working  with  my  clients,  we successfully co-create what is known as a Conscious Business, embracing a logical and deployable mix of  Conscious  Capitalism,  Change  Management  and  a  simple,  straightforward  5  step  model  called Practical Leadership.  This approach enables leaders and teams to work together for success, and quite simply,  it  just  works.    Practical  Leadership  includes  the  uncomplicated  application  of  known  critical leadership and team functions to enable an organization to accomplish goals and build a sustainable and fulfilling future.”              

In  addition to  writing  and  publishing  two  mystery  novels  (where  it’  s  really  about  the murder  and hot stuff) Bob is the proud father of two wonderful sons who both enjoyed the fruits of the Webster School system. Bob left Webster for a while, and was glad to return as he feels there is a  sense of community here that is lacking in other areas. Some of the ways Bob gives back to the community is dedicating time to various organizations such  as his church choir and council, previously serving as president, assistant scout master for the Boys Scouts of America, Webster Marching Band Boosters President, board member for  the  Webster  Chamber  and  past  chair  for  Rochester  Rehabilitation.  He  also  has  provided  pro-bono workshops  for  the  Fairport  Business  Association,  the  Penfield  Chamber  as  well  as  RochesterWorks! where  any  profits  from  events  go  to  the  Webster  Comfort  Care  Home;  He  has  also  delivered  multiple programs  for  the  Upstate  Synod  of  the  Lutheran  Church  of  America  and  the  Webster  Chamber  of Commerce.
