AGL 333: Rob Kalwarowsky

About Rob

Rob Kalwarowsky was at the top of his game. Known to colleagues only as Reliable Rob, his MIT Mechanical Engineering degree and dedication to the heavy industry space gave him the unique insight that saved his organization millions of dollars. But then, the twist. Upper management? They didn’t care. At all.

The huge disconnect spurred Rob to shift gears – from heavy industry to heavy research. 10 years later, the bleak results.

One: The relationship between workforce and management has broken down, everywhere, and completely.

Two: This is destroying the mental health of all involved – and taking entire companies down.

But there is a solution. And it starts with the deceptively simple question: what separates a great leader from an a**hole boss?

Rob brings deep insights into intra-organizational obstacles to change, and small shifts in leadership with big impacts on the bottom line, mental health, and quality of life across all levels.
