Confidante is a San Francisco Bay Area company co-founded in 1994 by Bobbi Lambert, PhD., a behavioral psychologist and Norman Plummer, Esq., an employment attorney. Prior to the formation of Confidante, they frequently collaborated to provide clients, primarily employers and their attorneys, with successful corrective workplace interventions. Their motivation to join forces was in large part generated by the experiences they gained working with organizations that experienced traumatic events in their working environments that could have been prevented. The pivotal experience came while working on a yearlong engagement with the personnel of a major law firm after they were devastated by a murder-suicide attack in their offices. Nine people died in that tragic event and the depth of the trauma suffered by the surviving colleagues and friends was a powerful incentive for Bobbi and Norm to commit to an effort to find ways to make workplaces more resistant to similar occurrences.
