Paul is dedicated with a passion to the development of highly effective LEADERSHIP and Management.

PHILOSOPHY: everyone has the potential to show effective leadership to people for the efficient management of other resources. The role of the effective LEADER Manager is to do both whilst achieving a multiplier effect on the organisation and its endeavour. Effective LEADER Managers promote a state of continual learning and adapt to any environment. Releasing potential, they transform results and create exciting futures.

Highly effective LEADER Managers thrive whilst valuing disparate ideas concurrently. Preference is a function of situational not personal need. Thinking inclusively, they appear to effortlessly achieve more with less.

DISPARATE IDEA PAIRS: LEADERSHIP vs. Management. PEOPLE vs. other resource. EFFECTIVE vs. efficient. MOTIVATION vs. productivity. BELIEF vs. systems. ROLE vs. structure. VISION vs. plans. STRATEGY vs. operations. COURAGE vs. risk. CREATIVITY vs. conformity. PRINCIPLE vs. process. CHANGE vs. maintenance. RELEASE vs. control.
