I understand how frustrating it is to keep spinning your wheels with an under-performing team.

The last thing you want to do is blow up your team. But staying in neutral isn't an option either.


30+ years ago while working in corporate America I began challenging my own thinking. I knew my mindset had everything to do with effective work and a happier life. The things I learned became the foundation for my Claim Leadership model and program.


It's my passion to turn an under-performing team into a band of elite players.

What if every team member viewed themself as a leader?

It all begins when people realize it's possible to become a better version of themselves. If each person sees what's possible personally then they WILL work better together as a team.


I like to think the end result is people truly finding JOY both in themselves and at work.


In 2010 I put my 20 years of corporate experience to use, along with my Masters in Counseling Psychology and HR, to form Claim Leadership.


Since then I've been able to help hundreds of teams transform unhealthy (and sometimes toxic) cultures into places people love to work.

"Outstanding! High energy - Paula kept everyone engaged. I will be referring Paula to more colleagues. We need her unique approach to self-development."

What makes Paula unique?

Most trainings lack lasting impact

The numbers don't lie. After only 5 sessions a Fortune 500's team said:

"I supervise a team of 6. And her words pop up on our regular team check-ins all the time. They all apply her concepts to work and personal lives. They bring her words up in our regular meetings. They respond positively to one another, are less reactionary, and have improved communication."


Of participants said "YES" they wanted the sessions to continue.


Of participants committed to attending future sessions.


Improvement in work-life balance skills ("I have tools to help me balance - to perform better at work and home".)


Improvement in stress management ("I know how to take steps to manage stress".)


"Improvement in employee satisfaction ("I enjoy coming to work each day".)
