Let us help you support your leadership team in exceeding expectations!
Teams are essential to a business's success. Team coaching focuses on the communication and relationship dynamics of the team while respecting the individuality of each participant. The result is a team that functions better together.
In many cases, it is the informal teams that form through necessity that produce the most effective outcomes. Without direct and overall accountability to one leader, the effectiveness of these teams can be inconsistent. And even within well defined teams, disconnects and silos can impact effectiveness.
An investment in your team is an investment in the future of the organization.
The focus on you! Your goals, your talents and your desired future state. In these confidential sessions we discuss what is important to you. Goals are set. Strategies for overcoming challenges are put in to action. And with accountability built in to the relationship, progress is made.
Having a coach is having someone who is on your side, a judgement free zone. A safe place to explore new boundaries and prepare you for the career you know you can achieve.
Invest in yourself for your best self.
As a certified leadership coach, Paula recognizes the capability gaps happening across teams big and small. She's not afraid to address the elephant in the room. Working with an organization’s leaders, she creates a plan that uses neuroscience (or a brain-based approach) and the organization’s real day-to-day work. I call on interactive exercises, brainstorming and feedback to create an environment ready to set priorities, breakdown barriers, and achieve success beyond expectations.
Paula guides organizations from the inside out using the KickStart Your Edge Model. Knowing that it all starts with the individual. From the individual, to teams, leaders, and the business itself, she focuses on the driving forces—The Thing Behind The Thing—that keeps organizations from achieving their best results.
You’ve taken personality tests… now it’s time for an attitudinal assessment
Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI)
This assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future. And, it’s only available through an iPEC Certified Coach.
With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes, worldview and “transform who you are.”
The Emotional Intelligence assessment identifies your current state of awareness and use of emotions in your interactions with others. By learning where you tend to behave, you can explore the breadth of alternatives to achieve the best possible outcome.

Paula has been my personal coach, guiding and supporting me for close to two years. She is knowledgeable, well versed in coaching skills and tools, and truly authentic in her approach. Along with this, she is nonjudgemental, caring, and very flexible when our schedule needs to be adjusted. A testimony to her coaching is how much I notice if I have postponed a session for a week or two. Her support is invaluable.
I recently had the privilege of embarking on a self-awareness journey with the help of Paula Rauenbuehler, certified professional coach, and people expert with decades of experience.
The process began with an assessment unlike anything I had ever participated in..
Paula immediately made me feel at ease and comfortable with her warm energy.
In the week after our debrief, I have already experienced small, but significant wins as a result.
Paula opened my eyes to Energy Leadership and I cannot wait to see what more awareness and practice will do for myself and those close to me.
The realizations I had because of Paula’s insights had a profound effect on how I approach every day and every interaction.
At first, I was unsure what to expect from this program (Energy Leadership) as I have not really done a profile similar to this in the past. Paula walked me through the process before we even began though, and I felt a little more comfortable that I knew what I was getting into.
After a series of professional and personal questions that were loosely related to each other, the results that were procured could not have been more accurate. I have to say, while this program didn’t teach me new things about myself that I wasn’t already aware of, the way that the results were presented allowed me to analyze myself in in a different manner. Paula helped me to understand my results and then showed me how to use this self-reflection to help clarify my thoughts and actions to better lead and help others to be successful. I frequently find myself stopping and reflecting on the strategies that she taught when dealing with situations and asking myself “at which level to I wish to engage this situation”.
This program really helped teach me how to pause and question how I react and how I want to react before taking action. That is the most valuable part for me. I would highly recommend this program to both new and seasoned leaders as I have not encountered such a profile more accurate.
Paula was my coach for 3 months as I was launching my new business. I appreciated her coaching process where she was masterful at asking probing questions that allowed me to explore some deeper issues I was struggling with. There were numerous times that I wrote those questions down and continued to explore them long after our discussions. Enjoyed working with Paula and would recommend her.
