I want them to activate their creative energy and insights, searching for new ways to serve and new products to develop." (Peter, President of an engineering firm.)

I highly value Paul’s insight. He is an Executive Coach to over 60 CEOs and their leadership teams. He has been a turnaround expert as well as CEO, President, and GM of 5 midmarket companies in four different industries. Every single leader that I’ve introduced Paul Cronin to has experienced amazing business results. His straight talk sets him apart as a distinct leader.
