What drives Rob Robertson?

Why do I get out of bed in the morning?

My driving purpose is to help make life easier, due to the inner struggles I have had. I love to help people find ‘flow‘ a peak-performance state when we are constantly at our best in life, sport, and business. Often this may be helping clients move from self-doubt to be in ‘flow.‘  Moving from a stressed state of no time and overwhelm, to high-productivity and a feeling of control to gain time freedom. ‘Flow’ is to be ‘in the zone’ when life, sport, and business become easy, due to empowered self-trust, living a more rewarding, high-productivity, passionate, and successful life.

Why that Why?

Having grown up with massive self-doubt which was covered up with positive thinking, it was always sport that was the barometer of my mental strength or lack of it! I often found in business that I could ‘fake it till you make it’ yet in sport, I would see a notable drop in performance under pressure. As a result, I am driven to help others avoid those struggles, using the tools I have used to build vastly greater mental and emotional strength and resistance. To now be achieving vasty higher productivity in leadership, sport, and business, to feel good about who I am. Finally building healthy self-esteem. Hence I get very excited about how technology, mental skills, and Emotional Fitness have helped me gain real progress in my business and sports results. While they are both a work in progress, I am not claiming to know all the answers, I can share what has worked for me and that is what excites me, helping others get free from the mental struggles I have had.


By using the 1pageplan tools, we define each client’s personal purpose and vision. Then the strategy and actions to fulfill this purpose and vision. This may be gaining greater awareness about the interplay and power of both their head and heart, to build better balance and self-belief, to unlock more passion and success ‘flow.

When this work is with a corporate or sports team,  we use the  1pageplan tools, so that each person can collaborate and share their intentions and goals with the team in the cloud. Shared the non-personal aspects of their goals which they are OK to share with the team. Helping build a shared focus with more supportive self-responsibility and teamwork. With all the goals shared, the last part is tracking the results in the 1pagedashboard for natural self-accountability with all the team able to view the team results. Supported by the right technology tools to significantly enhance time management and collaboration, to build the systems to engage a culture of high-productivity team results.


Clients are supported via executive coaching, training in person or online, facilitation, or by using Rob as a mentor. Success and the desired outcomes vary greatly for each client, yet often the outcome is greater trust, both internal trust of self, and in leadership, by building a team culture of greater responsibility and trust. This is much more than emotional intelligence, it is Emotional Fitness, an internal knowing, an inner trust of self. This is part of my work as Founder and CEO of  Unboxed Performance empowering people with the tools to build a team culture of greater output, success, and trust.


The following video, which is Simon Sinek’s TED talk, and his book, Start with Why have both had a massive impact on my work. They are a major inspiration that has helped shape my work and my own personal purpose along my journey of self-understanding and expression. I have used his theory and extended it to goal setting for teams with a purpose, using the 1pagedashboard.
