West Richland, WA – Certified life coach, author, speaker Paul Casey loves to help people take action and achieve their goals. Casey is the founder of Growing Forward Services, where he specializes in leadership and self-leadership coaching, team building and professional speaking services.
Casey helps leaders identify their strengths and passions to determine what they want out of leadership and sets the action plans that will make the biggest impact on the leader’s future.
Casey began his career as a grade school teacher at 22. By 24, he was the school’s vice-principal. By 26, he was principal.
“Twenty-six is pretty young to be a principal. Everybody was older than me,” recalls Casey. “It was a trial by fire. I had to learn to be a leader, how to learn the personality styles of my staff. Along my journey of being an educator and administrator for five non-profit organizations, I realized I had a passion for helping people grow. My passion for leadership and teaching and speaking was born out of those strengths. It’s something that energizes me.”
Casey says his sweet spot is working with clients who are middle managers that haven't reached that CEO pinnacle yet. They want to keep growing but feel pressure from above and below.
“Companies without a good, solid leadership development program, do their people a disservice by placing them in a leadership position without coaching or training along the way. I just feel like that's my sweet spot, the helping people pick up those practical tools that they can apply tomorrow.”
