"You have been kind, understanding, and insightful. You listen well, and your understanding of life, as well as your experience in various parish settings, provides a firm basis for  you to be of help. You have helped me discern the simple action steps to accomplish the tasks I have articulated, and they have worked! Thank you!"

~ Rev. Les Walck, retired pastor -- ELCA

"A previous story that I would tell myself is that I can do this!  And it often meant that I can do this alone.  Thank heavens, I don’t live through that story anymore.  I find that obstacles are softer and more easily identified and managed with the help of a coach and a community.  Paul Oppedahl listens very well and enters the conversation with sharp questions that provide direction for my thinking.  “Are we accomplishing what you wanted today?”  “That sounds like a complex project....”.   When I compose my response, I re-enter the conversation with more clarity and focus for where I will go in advancing my goals." 

~ Jill Christopherson, Eau Claire City Council

“It is a delight to work with Paul. His insightful questions and gentle coaching have helped me to examine my commitments and priorities and restore a more thoughtful and satisfactory balance to my busy life. I am very grateful for Paul’s work with me.”

~ Paul Savides, Retired English Teacher and volunteer community organizer for J.O.N.A.H. of the Chippewa Valley

"Paul stretches your thinking by drawing out your inner wisdom that stirs up action steps towards your promising future."

Rev. Dr. Thomas Pietz, St. Olaf Lutheran Church, Rubicon, WI -- ELCA
