Paul Batz Speaker Biography

Business transformation is a team sport, and Paul Batz has ushered in the golden era of executive team coaching, changing the conversation about what modern leadership looks like. He founded Good Leadership to help CEOs, business owners, executives, and community leaders grow and thrive with the idea goodness pays. Paul’s not-so-secret sauce teaches how alignment, commitment, and open accountability within teams are rewarded with great business results.

Paul’s personal mission is to help teams weave goodness into their work, achieving more together than they ever could alone. He uses goodness as the subject for team coaching, training, speaking, and inspirational programming.

The movement began when the Good Leadership Breakfast Series took off like a rocket. Since 2010, more than 15,000 guests have attended what is now the hottest leadership development networking breakfast series in the Midwest. In 2017, Paul started Good Leadership Press, a publishing label that produces positive books and tools to help good leaders create great results in their personal and professional lives.

Paul is blending the Seven Fs with his business partner and wife Melinda and their three adult children who all touch the business. He is hopelessly addicted to golf, an Elton John wannabee piano player, a philanthropist, and he loves hosting dinner parties at their home in Bloomington, MN.

Goodness Pays – How good leaders transform their business to get great results
What does the next level look like for your business? Can goodness help your business transform faster, reduce friction for change, improve employee engagement, and increase profitability? The data says yes… Goodness Pays. Most companies have financial systems, sales systems, and operating systems. What’s missing is a leadership system that pulls them all together to improve business results. When you focus on what the individual, team, and organizational transformation requires, you find alignment, commitment, and open accountability. The highest performing leaders choose to create cultures of encouragement fueled by goodness where the people around them thrive together. We can teach you how.

This engaging keynote will:

  • Reframe the conversation on what it takes to create real, sustainable success that everyone embraces.
  • Articulate what commonsense business practices accelerate business growth and profitability
  • Show how leaders who have a compelling plan and make timely and transparent decisions in a team-based culture deliver better business results
  • Learn the one-question survey that is a statistically significant predictor of business results
  • Understand the best ways to manage a motivating public scorecard where everyone is held accountable and what to avoid
  • Inspire people to create a specific plan for how they can improve their next business transformation

Goodness Pays for All – How great teams work together to get better results
We believe that everyone is a leader of their own life and everyone’s roles and responsibilities are imperative to the team getting good business results. Alone, what we can accomplish is limited, as a team, our potential has no bounds. Empowering all employees with goodness improves engagement, enhances customer loyalty, and develops the leaders and culture necessary for future success. Our Goodness Pays approach focuses on ways for people to thrive together.

This motivating keynote will:

  • Provide insights into people’s professional and personal leadership
  • Create an immediate impact on their professional and personal spheres of influence
  • Give people new ways to collaborate with their teams to turn challenges into opportunities
  • Teach ways to increase the speed of team decision-making and increase alignment in their work
  • Deliver actionable encouragement
  • Inspire people to create a specific plan for how to improve their contribution to their team

How Aspirational Thinking Improves Life and Leadership
The best leaders can see into the future. And they have vivid goals that propel them forward – both personally and professionally. This keynote is perfect for emerging leaders, and veterans who are feeling “stuck” in their life and leadership. Aspirational thinking is a skill that can be taught and practiced. Aspirational leaders inspire innovation, collaboration and an everyday spirit of goodness – when people thrive together both personally and professionally.
This presentation will include hands-on tools, techniques, and coaching advice to spark transformational growth in individuals, teams, and organizations.

Paul will teach you:

  • How having a Big Hairy Audacious Goal, a Personal Mission Statement, and a Bucket List can help your life and your professional development.
  • How Aspirational Thinking is the key to create transformational business results.
  • How the Seven Fs Wheel© stimulates personal and professional growth
  • How a culture of encouragement where people can thrive together will create positive momentum in your business, team, and personal life.

This keynote is easily customized for events where spouses, partners and families may attend.
