Quotes from Tim

"The quality and enjoyment of our work life is experienced in direct proportion to our conscious efforts to align our professional lives with our personal values."

"During our collaboration, going to work becomes more than an obligation. It becomes a meaningful and challenging journey. That which we do becomes linked to who we are and then an authentic possibility of change becomes real. At the heart of the matter, Cultural Architecture is an alchemical process -- there is mystery in every moment, and renewed purpose with every step."

"The gifts of a diverse community can be activated and used to create an organizational culture that will serve our vision for doing work that matters."

His authentic and powerful voice makes a difference in the way people make decisions.”

Timothy Dobbins is unique, powerful, and authentic Pat Mitchell, president and CEO, Paley Center for Media (Formerly Museum of Television and Radio)

“Tim Dobbins’ unique background enables him to bring to leadership problems a combination of heart and mind that’s sorely needed in today’s world – a world that requires businesspeople to ‘step up,’ confront, and resolve the challenges of persistent poverty, inequality, disease, conflict, and human rights violations that threaten us all.”

Tim Dobbins brings a unique combination of heart and mind Joe W. (Chip) Pitts III, chair of Amnesty International USA, and lecturer in law, Stanford University Law School and Oxford University

Dobbins shows how thoughtful and decisive decision making can maximize profits without sacrificing the quality of life so many of us want from our work.
