About Us


Paula Strean

When you become connected to what really matters you become willing to move past barriers. You listen to your intuition, lead from your strengths, and become curious and resourceful. One result is you experience more awe and wonder in your life. You are present, more alive and in touch with what you have to offer. You get to play a much bigger game, in  fact one that feels worthy of your life.

“I  partner with people who are developing themselves as leaders. They come to coaching to take their lives to a new level of success,  satisfaction, and purpose."

It is a commitment and a joy of mine to  ongoingly develop myself and work with others to do the same. I feel most engaged when laughing and playing with family and friends, spending  time outdoors and collaborating with people who are curious,  creative,  and who are willing to step into the unknown. Courageous  conversations that have people overcoming obstacles, leaving them ready to take action are what it’s all about. I am inspired by the  flexibility and resilience of the human spirit and the inherent desire  we have to make a difference.
