Leadership Coach in North Carolina

The world, your customers, your business, and its leaders need Alignment Superpowers. I help build them. That's my why.

You and your team face unprecedented uncertainty and challenges. More than ever, leaders like you need to be at the top of your game. The surest path to accomplish that is to work with a coach.

I bring 30+ years of diverse technical, consulting, strategy, business-building and leadership experience (including seven startups; two grew to over $100million). My passion is helping leaders and their teams accomplish more.

I coach new and experienced leaders to build the decision making, leadership and soft skills they need for success. I've been through this journey myself, and I understand the challenges.

Almost all small-to-midsize businesses face some common challenges: people issues, slower growth than desired, not enough profit, loss of direction, and that out-of-control feeling that nothing's working. These things keep you and your leadership team from making the impact you know you can make, and it robs you of energy for the other things in life that are important to you.

I work with leadership teams of 2-10 people to solve these problems, and accelerate improvement and results. I teach, facilitate and coach them to apply a proven system called EOS®, the Entrepreneurial Operating System®. Most leadership teams are operating at 20-40% efficiency. I get yours to 80-100%. Imagine the impact that will have!

In my experience, EOS can be the fastest and surest path to build holistic alignment across a growing business. Read more about it here!

I have homes in Holly Springs, NC and Asheville, NC and do most of my work in those areas.

When I'm not working with clients, I'm probably hiking in the NC mountains. Ask me about that if you really want to get me talking. :-)

What clients say about me
Paul's approach is excellent at identifying the true goals and outcomes a business needs to achieve success. If you are interested in turning ideas into actions, I would definitely recommend his approach to achieving better results.
Principal, IT Consulting Company
Paul brought the right processes, tools, and attitude to the table throughout the engagement. He was instrumental in establishing a high level of trust among the team members, setting the right environment and in driving positive results. In addition to his contribution as a facilitator, he very quickly developed a good understanding of our business and exhibited the ability to find the critical point in a complex conversation. I wholeheartedly recommend Paul.
CIO, Global Training Company
Paul Penny recently facilitated a workshop for members of our team, with very good results. His facilitation process drove discussion across a diverse audience, and got ideas flowing for how to address some of our pressing challenges. I recommend Paul and his workshop approach if you need to drive team consensus and actions around strategic initiatives.
