Leadership Training
Paul has successfully led HR teams in corporations large and small—from Fortune 500 to startup—including in service/manufacturing, non-profit, union, and international environments. As a senior level executive, he has trained hundreds of leaders in the very best performance management practices, focusing always on productivity, accountability, and retention. Paul offers this outstanding leadership training to your team of leaders, while aligning senior level communication and engagement.

Executive Coaching
The hallmark of Paul’s ten books, lectures, and webinars is his practical way of building motivated and engaged teams by helping leaders get in front of issues and forecast people challenges before they have a chance to take root.  With a vast amount of experience in the employment management landscape, he can quickly tell it like it is and coach leaders into high levels of productivity, resulting in greater employee satisfaction, pervasive improvements, and company benefit. Paul seamlessly enters into your culture and helps your team truly shine.

HR Consulting
It’s rare to be able to claim that someone has literally “written the book on it.” In a wide array of HR topics, including hiring, retention, performance management, corrective measures, and legal issues, Paul truly has written a book or an article on most aspects of these critical leadership topics. Paul offers tremendous experience and resources to senior level executives in helping them launch programs, solve challenges, and navigate crisis situations.
