Coaching with Paul transformed overwhelming professional demands in communication, coordination, and prioritization into strong abilities to manage, motivate, and contribute impactfully while flourishing in my non-professional life.
Paul is a role model for dedication to mastery and has my highest recommendations for any researcher, team-lead, or ambitious entrepreneur.
Chief Medical Officer at Alvea
Coaching with Paul has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. Our 43 sessions (and counting) have enabled me to substantially increase my lifetime impact by making wiser and more audacious decisions that are aligned with my values and the change I want to see in the world (e.g., pursuing a coaching path and moving to a different country with sparse savings while navigating covid).
Importantly, Paul has also enabled me to appreciate and cultivate self-compassion and self-determinedly discover what real happiness is for me — thereby, incrementally and consistently designing my masterpiece life.
Co-founder of Impact Academy & Coach
Throughout our 150+ sessions, Paul shines as a coach with his thoughtful, highly demanding and compassionate style.
Over the 4+ years that we have worked together he has significantly contributed to my personal and professional development. He guided me in making and implementing transformative career decisions, like switching from electrical engineering to machine learning.
He also enabled me to establish my self-actualisation system and helps me embody my high and joyful standards. In our weekly sessions, he consistently shows up with prime dedication. And I can trust on his deep and nuanced mental models, apt communication, and genuine quest to enable his coachees to actualise their full potential. Thanks my dear friend! Looking forward to all the goodness to come.
Machine Learning Engineer
Paul taught me quite a few of the mental models and (self-)management tools I use today.
I appreciate his focus on (and vast toolbox for) long-term growth, which strongly differentiates him vs. your average productivity coach. Thanks Paul!
Director at Blue Horizon, ex-BCG
Paul is a truly excellent coach.
I had 40 sessions with him over the course of 2 years, then tried some other coaches, and then continued coaching with Paul.
In our sessions, I made transformational progress on topics as broad as motivation, procrastination, communication, teamwork, leadership, time and project management, and decision-making. Paul's science-based and no-bullshit approach aims at long-term growth, not only fixing this week's issues.
Paul has outstanding knowledge about psychology/personal development, which he shares if appropriate without taking ownership of the coaching session away from the coachee.
M.D. | Machine Learning Researcher at Oxford University
Coaching with Paul had an incredible impact on my performance as well as my well-being. It empowered me to step fully into my new role as a company executive and make my team and myself thrive.
He's not only a great source of useful knowledge and wisdom but also really made sure that I implement the big ideas and tools he taught me into my life. And that's where Paul's greatest strengths lie. Changing thinking and behavioral patterns for the better.
Co-Founder & CTO of Bloom
I received coaching from Paul for a little over a year. Paul introduced me to important new concepts and systems for effective self development, planning, and task management, and provided accountability to make sure I implemented these.
This has accelerated my personal growth and provided long-run productivity gains.
Senior Manager at Rethink Priorities
A confession from a recovering sceptic of most self-development: Paul is an excellent coach and role model.
Due to his coaching, I felt empowered to leap from a safe job into independent research and submitted my first paper with little supervision, setting me up for more impact throughout my career. Before starting coaching, I thought my self-limiting beliefs were merely an accurate judgment of my abilities, based on reality. Paul challenged them successfully over the course of over 30 sessions, never hesitating to call me out on my bullshit and highlighting how I get distracted from my actual goals.
My past self from 6 months ago would be surprised to hear that I joyfully set goals and meet them, track metrics I care about in spreadsheets (I used to hate spreadsheets with passion), and recover from any hardship I encounter within less than 24 hours. Due to the knowledge management and tracking systems we set up, I can stay on this trajectory in the long term. Thank you!
M.D. Bioseccrity | UN Office for Disarmament Affairs
My 12 sessions with Paul were instrumental in helping me recover during the biggest period of burnout during my life, and in the process helped me develop lifetime habits and mindset shifts that I expect to still be paying dividends years from now.
His focus on self-compassionate experimentation is something that I'm using almost every day, and helped me move away from self-criticism and perfectionism.
Media Associate at Longview Philanthropy
As a coachee of Paul, my statistics alone demonstrate the magnitude of Paul's impact on my personal productivity: His sessions unlocked 5-8 productive hours in my week compared to my pre-coaching baseline. There's a lot of additional nuance and color to this: Thanks to Paul, I'm less distractable, I generally feel better, and I continue pushing myself sustainably.
Working with Paul has improved my long-term productivity and well-being, and I expect many changes, habits, and lessons to be permanent. In terms of an investment in yourself, I can highly recommend Paul.
