As the 2020 Rookie of the Year, Southwest Region in ActionCOACH Business Coaching, and the 2021 Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce Rising Star Awardee, Paul Raggio brings over forty years of leadership, business, and personal development experience to executives and business owners. "Brilliant! Brilliant in its clarity and simplicity." This was Paul's response to Monte Wyatt, CEO of Adding Zeros, when asked about the 5 Disciplines of Exponential Growth.

Paul is co-owner with his sister Lisa of One True North INC, Leadership and Business Coaching Solutions. They started their business in 2019, drawing from their vast military, public, private, and non-profit sector experiences. Their passion is to empower leaders and their team on the virtues, behaviors, and skills to find and live their One True North…their why, and their purpose to be, do, and have!

After fourteen years of service, Paul retired from a billion-dollar corporation as a top executive. He led one of five business units for ten of the fourteen years, inspiring anywhere from three to five company presidents to achieve phenomenal growth and financial results. His leadership impacted 2,000 employees operating in forty-one states and two countries.

Before transitioning to the private sector, Paul served for twenty-six years in the Army and retired as a colonel. His positions of responsibility were at the Department of Defense's highest levels working for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Secretary and Chief of Staff of the Army as a legislative deputy and director of legislative activities. Notably, Paul commanded the only military police paratrooper brigade in the Army…3,000 troops east of the Mississippi River. Additionally, he worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency's Comptroller as the budget officer for the Defense Attaché Program and the General Defense Intelligence Program. Paul is a veteran of Desert Shield and Storm, the liberation of Kuwait, and Just Cause, the capture of General Noriega, and the return of democracy to the Republic of Panama.

Paul believes your character defines who you are, and your vision and how clear, direct, purposeful, and inspirational you communicate determines your followership's depth. His commitment is to inspire, facilitate, and guide CEOs and their executive teams on leading and managing by bringing awareness, education, implementation, and discipline to their organizations.

Paul will move you to create a sustainable, predictable, stable, consistent, and emotionally connected exceptional organization that adds zeros!
