Paul R. Damiano, Ph.D.

For over thirty years, I have focused my career around helping individuals and organizations become better versions of themselves. With a strong background in both business and industrial/organizational psychology, I am uniquely positioned to help people in the business world grow, develop, and attain measurable goals. As a true believer in the “practice-what-you-preach” model, I am a life-long learner constantly pushing my own boundaries. My approach to coaching is adaptive, accessible, and goal-oriented. I quickly build rapport and create an environment of trust and openness. I've learned how to adapt my style to both the developmental stage of my client, as well as to the environment or context of their workplace. I can be both tough and tender or serious and playful, while skillfully delivering psychological concepts and other data-based evidence in an accessible and immediately applicable manner. I have been known to use humor throughout the coaching process, but always combine it with a laser-like focus on business outcomes and goal attainment.

I started Good Works Consulting in 2006 as a way to deepen my service to individuals and businesses alike. I am certified in over sixty workplace assessments including individual personality profiles, team and group assessments, and organizational change and culture diagnostics. I have experience in helping organizations in the hiring and selection process by conducting behavioral-based and personality profile-based interviews. Additionally, I coach and consult with senior teams on how to improve their decision-making processes, communication patterns, conflict resolution skills, and how to identify and leverage high potential talent within the organization.

Through delivering custom-designed training programs, team development processes, organizational change initiatives, 
facilitation, keynote speaking, and an executive coaching practice, I've worked with thousands of mid to senior level executives from across a broad spectrum of industries and over six continents.
