As an Emergenetics Coach, Paul utilizes the powerful Emergenetics Profile in his executive coaching practice.


Emergenetics Emergenetics is the merging of two ideas - our behavior emerging from our life experiences and our genetic traits. Emergenetics is rooted in the concept that who you are today is the emergence of your behavior, genetic makeup and life experiences.

It provides a clear way to understand this intersection of nature and nurture through the Emergenetics Profile, built on four Thinking Attributes and three Behavioral Attributes that every leader exhibits.

Emergenetics brings a clearer understanding of how people live, work, communicate, and interact with others. It creates a common language by which leaders can more effectively communicate and bring about better results in any situation. It empowers the individual, strengthens teams, and transforms organizations.

The Emergenetics process is a proven tool for leadership development, team building, increasing diversity awareness, conflict resolution and coaching.


The Emergenetics Profile reveals your strengths…the way you prefer to think and behave. And by better understanding yourself and others, you can build interpersonal strategies as a leadership team that drive results.

Developed through years of psychometric research, the Emergenetics Profile accurately measures three behavioral attributes (Expressiveness, Assertiveness, Flexibility) and four thinking attributes (Analytical, Structural, Social, Conceptual).

The attributes are represented in a clear, color-coded report, making it memorable and applicable immediately.
