Raul is a natural coach. His mild and amicable demeanor allows him to easily connect with people, making them comfortable and open thus enabling them to find creative solutions to their concerns.
Here is a quote from one of his coaches:
“Coach Raul was very composed all the time. He was able to provide probing questions to understand my issues better, then he was able to give me guided questions to figure out what I have to do and how to address them better. His vast experience helped a lot as we were able to compare notes and discuss even similarities in our careers, but in the end, he allowed me to do what I have to do. His mild personality also helped a lot as he was able to always calm down the situation each time I get a “little explosive” when I vent out my issues. I will be forever grateful to my coach for being able to guide me in this challenging phase in my career. It felt really good being able to have someone listen let being coached professionally. He came in at the right time, at the right moment.
Raul was a cum laude from the University of the Philippines at Los Baños with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agribusiness Management. He also holds a Masters Degree in Business Administration from the University of the Philippines Diliman.
