Bob Paden is the Owner of The Growth Coach of North Indianapolis. Bob focuses on helping business owners and leaders believe the actions they are taking today will achieve the results they want in their future through a long-term, authentic relationship.
Bob considers himself to be a Synergist/Integrator – a coach who enhances the effectiveness of a leader and their team and increases the speed of change, bringing disconnected pieces of a business together into a cohesive scalable machine….also a connector – putting the right people at the right time in front of clients to solve more challenges than they can solve themselves.
Another description of Bob is a whitewater rafting guide – you and your team are in the boat, paddling away, and he is in the back helping guide you and your boat and your team through the “whitewater” of change in your business – whether a leadership change, a market change, a transition, entering new markets, preparing for sale, getting your business unstuck or out of crisis or trouble.
Bob has a B.S. Degree from Purdue University in Mechanical Engineering Technology and has worked in and around small, large, local and global companies such a Rolls-Royce, Cummins, Quest-Global and Qantas to name a few, including my own businesses of NewRiverz, TIER321 and now The Growth Coach. Bob has led both small and large teams, developed and coached many leaders over 30 years and developed and managed new scalable teams and processes along the way.
Bob is passionate about this family, has been married for over 30 years to his wonderful wife Lori (a Registered Nurse) and two children, one Purdue Alumni (Shelby) and another Purdue sophomore (Eric) and is truly enjoying an empty-nest lifestyle with Lori and their two rescued black Labradors, Murphy and Mo.
