A Conversation With the Coach
With twenty years as an NFL coach, Bob Slowik taught effective leadership and motivation, while experiencing first-hand what it takes to face and conquer the competition.
His lessons on mindset development, personal growth, and how to harness passion to achieve objectives, are ones that not only resonate with athletes and other coaches; but with professionals in the business community who contend with challenges daily.
“I provide motivation and inspiration for competitors of all kinds looking to gain an edge; to help professionals compete at the highest possible level”.
“Football is a lot like life and life is a lot like football. It is a finite period of time — an opportunity. A chance to do the best job you can.”
“Whether or not you’re an NFL pro, we all have obstacles to surmount – we all have a game day for which we need support and guidance.”
– Coach Slow
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT COACH SLOW’S PRESENTATIONS!
“Leadership is the ability to teach others to lead.” My first NFL coaching job came under Bob Slowik. I was his Quality Control Coach and he was the Defensive Coordinator of the Chicago Bears. Bob was our Coach, Teacher and Leader, but to me he was more, he was a Mentor. He knows how to motivate and communicate with others to become more than they thought they could. I am an example of his ability to help and shape leaders.
Ron Rivera, Head Coach Carolina Panthers
When Coach Slow was my coach when I played for the Broncos, I never thought I’d eventually be hired by FOX Sports NFL as an analyst, or even to be given the opportunity as GM of the 49ers. I would bet then that Bob didn’t think he’d find himself as the author of a book, the founder of a web coaching clinic on leadership, or traveling across the country giving keynote addresses. But here we are. Taking our years of hard and often grueling work, to share what we have learned. I wish him the best, because he is a different kind of leader. The kind you can learn from.
John Lynch, GM of the San Francisco 49ers
Coach Slow worked for me as a position coach when I was the defensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins. He loved the game as I did, and worked tirelessly over our four years together on that coaching staff. Bob puts passion and immense energy into everything he does. He understands the dynamics of leadership. He understands how to demonstrate it and how to teach it. He’s a standup guy with a 35-year career communicating to people how to live what they want.
Jim Haslett, Former NFL head coach and defensive coordinator, now coaching for the Cincinnati Bengals
I had the opportunity to present with Coach Slowik at the 2017 California Payroll Conference where he spoke to our group about Effective Leadership. The workshop was wonderful and certainly worth attending. Coach Slow has the best enthusiasm for what he was teaching and interest in helping each one of us. The leadership slogans that he presented during the time he was with us were taken back by many of our attendees and I see them using them in our communications today. There are very few speakers who can take common sense material and make it new and fresh. His ability to reference his own successes and failures and turn them into learning moments is invaluable. Attending the workshop was one of the best investments in myself that I have ever made, and I will enthusiastically endorse this workshop to others.

I’ve known Bob Slowik since back in our Dallas Cowboy’s coaching days in the early nineties and when I coached the Chicago Bears. He was then, like he is today, a natural leader with the ability to teach the complexities of team dynamics in a goal-oriented setting. If there’s anyone to take a cue on leadership from, it’s Coach Slow!
Dave Wannstedt, FOX Sports NFL and college football studio analyst
In my business I attend multiple seminars a year. I sat through this particular keynote as it was a credit-earning opportunity for myself and my co-workers. The NFL coach who took the podium, did more than take it, he stole the show! He used football as a parallel for life and business success and gave all of us much to think about. I was taken with his ability to convey leadership concepts in the context of stories that related very much to situations we face at work. Excellent!
Patty Lesko, Paywell
It was such a joy and pleasure to have met Coach Slow at our California Payroll Conference in Anaheim. His mere presence promoted positivity and energy that could be felt in the room. His dedication to his team and the way he learned to effectively communicate with them gave me tools I am looking to use with my team when I returned from the conference.
Sabrina Linsalato, CPP Director of Payroll
I saw Bob Slowik deliver the keynote at a recent industry event in California. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I don’t know much about football and didn’t really see how it could relate to myself or my team. What I found was that leadership is leadership is leadership. And when you hear stories of perseverance and leading a team to victory under the worst of circumstances you find yourself being able to relate. You find yourself believing in impossible. He was in a word “inspirational” and there were times during his presentation you could actually hear a pin drop because you could feel how genuine his passion is about helping other leaders face what we face.
