About the Convergence group

Dr. Paulthe Convergence group was founded by Dr. Paul G.

He is also a certified Life Coach with CoachNet and Leader Break/thru. He currently serves as an adjunct Instructor in Philosophy and Religion at DMACC (undergraduate), in Organization Leadership at Grand View University (graduate) and in Christian Leadership at New Hope Christian College (graduate). He has self-published several books and discovery learning workbooks on spiritual formation, discipleship and leadership development.

Dr. Paulthe Convergence group provides communication resources and events, consulting, and coaching for individual leaders and organizations in the non-profit and for profit sectors. Leadership development is best accomplished through relational empowering, accountability and discovery learning. People tend to experience the greatest life and leadership changes when they are valued, supported, and discover/decide for themselves what course of action they want to take. If you discover it, you own it and may put what you learned into practice!
