If you want to get ahead in business, it’s all about who you know. And according to St. Louis Small Business Monthly, if you want to do business in St. Louis, you need to know Psychological Associates co-Founder Dr. Robert Lefton.
Dr. Lefton has been selected as one of the “Top 100 St. Louisans To Know To Succeed In Business” for 2019, based on his efforts, contributions, and experiences giving back and helping business owners reach their dreams. As co-founder of Psychological Associates, Dr. Lefton has devoted his six-decade career to helping businesses and their leaders improve communication skills, develop succession plans, improve people skills, and unite around healthy company cultures.
At 87, Dr. Lefton remains a prolific networker and connector, and those who know him are far from surprised to hear of his selection for this honor. In fact, Dr. Lefton’s friends and colleagues have long considered him the go-to guy for helping a rising business star find the right path.
One such friend, Bob Fox, Founder and Chairman of Casa De Salud, noted that when he asked Dr. Lefton to interview the new president of Casa De Salud, Jorge Riopedre, Dr. Lefton decided to take things a step further by offering his services as an executive coach. Since then, the relationship has continued to flourish, and Dr. Lefton has relished the opportunity to help Jorge build connections and succeed in his field.
Upon hearing of his selection for the honor, Dr. Lefton said, “I love hearing that. It really has a great ring to it. But I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family, friends, and colleagues. That, and having the opportunity to obtain a marvelous education from Washington University. So any compliments should really be directed toward them!”
