I am an academic physician and department chair who worked with Paul for one year. I was apprehensive about our first meeting, but very much looked forward to our meetings after that. Paul has a very comforting style and focuses on issues of importance to the client. He is very supportive, yet is always direct and does not shy from offering contrary viewpoints. He gave useful input and pointed me in the direction of outside reading that was also helpful. Without knowing I was seeing a coach, colleagues told me they saw a positive change in my personal interactions. As a result of our time together, I feel I am a better leader, husband, and colleague. Thank you, Paul.
