Rob Lockard, SPHR, SCP

Certified Talent Optimization Consultant & CEO


I helped to place people in corporate roles according to their skills and abilities for years. I actually thought I was pretty good at it. Only, in many cases I found out months later that my manager counterparts and I had somehow missed the mark. More numerous times than I care to admit, the once shining example of the job candidate I found, eventually faded in the long-term. For one reason or another, who was left wasn’t what I or the hiring manager had envisioned as being the help they needed on their team(s).

For the life of me, I just couldn’t figure it out. Even with the best “gut feelings” about a candidate, I would be let down time-and-again. I had done just about everything in my power to ensure that a new team member would work out…and be “the one”.


I found the true reason. It was because I and my counterparts were only looking at half of the equation. We were only focused on at what we could physically see – and guessing at drives and motivations.


An early and true skeptic of the Predictive Index process, I turned the power of my profile on itself looking for cracks and flaws. What it provided were answers. The more I reviewed, the more it explained my personal work frustrations and got to the root of the burnout that I had been struggling with for years. I even learned that I wasn’t using my own innate attributes and talents as effectively as I could!


emineo was created to help organizations (and ultimately their individual contributors) navigate the connection between innate talents and how they can be utilized to drive positive organizational results…so that everyone is left happy and energized about what they contribute.

If you would like to learn more about how you could go about doing this at your organization, I encourage you – let’s connect! My e-mail is: rob@emineo-hr.com

But don’t just take our word for it…

Rob was an incredible help and resource for our team! He shared insightful HR best practices and gave applicable feedback for our current on-boarding process. We highly recommend working with Rob!!

~ Rachel, Learning & Engagement Coordinator (2020)

“Rob was great to work with. Very knowledgeable and patient with all my questions. He helped me come up with a great product for our organization. Highly recommend Rob!!!”

~ Kim, HR Director (2019)

“…worked with Rob for a couple of years recruiting and hiring for specialized positions outside of his daily sphere of familiarity. He has been wonderful at getting a clear understanding of what I was looking for and the person that would be the best fit for the position. He worked diligently to research the specifics of the position and the expected outcome for a successful candidate. He went above and beyond my requested expectation, and offered vital recruitment suggestions to assist our small operation to find the right person. After finding the right person, He followed-up to make sure that he met our needs and expectations. He offered coaching tools and resources available to sustain the success of the candidate and cultivate employee development. Rob offered stellar customer service and guidance in our pre- and post employee search. He is a pleasure to work with and left us with a positive experience. “

~ Angela, Executive Director

Rob is the consummate HR professional. Very quickly, he turned around a department that was in complete disarray and gained the respect of the leadership. His knowledge of HR is extensive…Not only did he help us in Kansas City, MO, but he also recruited and supported in several other states, including Kansas, Iowa, Texas and many others, requiring him to be knowledgeable of their laws and regulations too. His responsibilities continued to expand as the company moved into new states. I enjoyed working with Rob and respected him for his great ideas and his ability to handle some of the thorniest issues in the HR arena. As COO, I appreciated his support and trusted him to always do his best for the company and its team members. “

~Susan, COO

“…[Rob] took the time to educate first line managers of all human resource procedures pertaining to hiring…He was always available and courteous in his dealings with these managers. In addition, he was highly knowledgeable and competent. Even after leaving the company, he still did not hesitate to help and provide me with information.”

~ Edith, Manager

“…for once in my career it felt like HR was an asset rather than just a necessity. A real gift in being calm and helpful during challenging times and I appreciated the way he delivered it in layman’s terms. Rather than directing everyone with only policy and handbook speak, Rob’s approach was geared more towards informing you of legal and ethical recommendations and then supporting you and your decision. Most importantly, it was the first time we had a partner in recruiting. He implemented several programs and resources for finding more qualified folks and assisted with training, both in which really helped in retention. People around him just seemed to get better…I highly recommend his professionalism, knowledge, energy, strategic thinking, flexibility, kindness and commitment. An upgrade to any HR team!”Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

~ Tom, VP

“I have worked with Rob on a variety of different recruitment projects and corporate initiatives. He was eager to give insights and coach through challenging situations and never let his workload interfere with his desire to help. He often checked-in on how things were going and communicated efficiently and concisely. I enjoyed working with Rob, as his energy for his work and desire to see those around him succeed is refreshing and would be an asset to any organization.”

~ Kate, Marketing Manager
