Paul O Olson

Sustainable results | Laser focused leadership

Executive turned Doctor of Psychology. On my journey, I have discovered and dreamt; grabbed opportunities; developed a whole range of new skills and knowledge, now I give you Accelerating Leadership Development based on Appreciative Inquiry and a 35+ years track record. 

Executives, consultants and coaches hire me to mentor and supervise, deliver training and facilitate laser-focused business projects; because most don’t have all the tools they need or they are overwhelmed or they are failing important goals.

BOTTOM-LINE: I help accelerate and focus your leadership, facilitate turnarounds and solve strategy related problems. 

For you, this can mean:

A deep dive together. Whether as protégé or in the Inner Circle, we can help you win more business and expand your executive playing field

Get new perspectives. Deep also means experimenting with new methods. No matter how seasoned you are, joining a mastermind with peers can add to your professional and personal life. 

Save money (yes!). Having a community of colleagues means you learn from each other and connect it directly to practice. Working together is more fun, too…

Work smarter. We combine leadership, business and psychology; I want you to do heavy lifting where others have failed. You learn how to accelerate development processes, to hit the road running when needed.

Be found. As head-hunter I have interviewed hundreds of senior executives. Now I think it is just as difficult to find exactly the right executive coach, mentor or organisational consultant for a complex project. I’ll personally review your profile for our global services directory. 

Enjoy high-quality supervision. Our masterminds include a protocol for peer supervision and Psych Retreats. By attending an intensive week (in Spain), you can get even get access to our Clinical Help-desk.

Join us. Ready to get laser-focused and create sustainable results? Ready for a community of experienced practitioners? People who have been there, done that? Who are generous and support each other for professional, personal and business development or even sell your services?

“…because he’s one of the best in Europe” – a business owner when asked by one of his CEOs why he hired an executive coach from Norway to coach a German management team, in German

“… What makes you unique and exceptional is your robust background in GE practices, coupled with your thorough understanding of mentoring and coaching, topped off by your Ph.D. in Psychology. That’s a rich and truly wonderful stew of skill sets, talents, and gifts that you bring to every client, and it gives you an exquisitely wide and deep tool kit with which you can be of service to your clients.” – an executive coach and mastermind leader who serves Fortune 500 C-suite executives
