Bob Kaplan is president of Kaplan DeVries Inc, specialists in assessing leaders for selection and for development. With Wilfred Drath and Joan Kofodimos, Bob introduced a forerunner of executive coaching. With them he published Beyond Ambition: How Driven Managers Can Lead Better and Live Better. He built an early 360 survey (SKILLscope for Managers), and he came up with the idea for a different breed of 360, the patented Leadership Versatility Index, which he and Rob Kaiser developed and commercialized.
An honorary senior fellow at the Center for Creative Leadership, he has a B.A. and Ph.D. from Yale University. He lives in New York City with his wife Becky.
