Hi, I’m Paula. Optimistic Realist and Extroverted Introvert. I have a serious passion for learning and development and live for “light bulb” moments. I help leaders Cultivate Insight and Influence Change so that they can transform their personal and professional relationships through courageous conversation. Ultimately, it is about the practice of slowing down, finding stillness, and listening – to ourselves and others – to get better results.
I hold my M.A. in Organizational Leadership from Bethel University, my PHR and SHRM-CP certifications, and am a certified trainer for: Dare to Lead™, InsideOut Coaching™, Myers Briggs Type Indicator™ (MBTI), and Franklin Covey’s The 6 Critical Practices of Leading a Team™. I am currently working towards my ACC accreditation through the International Coaching Federation.
I believe people have Inner Wisdom waiting to be discovered, so I practice a partnership philosophy in my client relationships and enjoy co-creating brave new endings, and extraordinary results, with courage and curiosity. I live in Minneapolis with my two furry roommates, Vivian and Josephine. I love lake life and enjoy reading, hiking, and helping others learn.
