Paige brought a wonderful curiosity and empathy to her coaching work with our team. Her approach helps people explore and clearly name the challenges they individually encounter in their career path, and then she gives them concrete, actionable “homework” to take them to the next level. It built our team’s internal capacity and we’ve continued to go back to some of her exercises when we feel stuck.

Paige Boyd is an absolute leader in the HR space. Having worked with her on a major organizational restructuring project a few years back, I saw a leader capable of leading the C suite down to operational tactics in functional areas.
Paige is a data driven, situational leadership coach helping many executives plan their HR strategy including implementing those actions. I value her counsel and recommend her to the decision-makers.
-Wally Burchfield, VP Aftersales, Nissan North America
My relationship with Paige is two-fold and initially began with me pursuing her to join me to lead consulting engagements. It quickly turned to a realization that I needed a coach. Paige has a unique ability to work with a wide range of personalities and functions. I have worked with several coaches throughout my career and very few offer a complete package of real-world experience and validated coaching credentials. When it comes to coaching, there are lots of well-meaning folks in the space and quite frankly it does not take much to call yourself a coach. Very few can deliver lasting change.
Part of Paige’s uniqueness is not only having the ability to assist with personal change but also a strong business savvy. On their own you can achieve good results but when combined you get transformational results. Paige is also adaptable. What began as partnership to really help me for my own company, shifted gears from business strategy to career strategy. She quickly adapted and executed flawlessly. She was there every step of the way which led me to not only landing in the right spot but thriving in my new role. If you are serious about personal or organizational change and it is important for you to work with someone who has been there, done that and excelled at every step of the way, look no further than Paige Boyd.
-Craig Eggleton, Sales Effectiveness & Commercial Development Director, Ingram Barge Company
What if I told you there is a right way to have the position you want, or be the best you for a future role? That right way is spending a few months with Paige Boyd putting in the work to shape you. The tools and techniques Paige uses will help you to identify and prioritize the right next steps that will have the most impact. Preparing yourself for open feedback and experimentation will make the difference. In the months I spent with Paige, I saw my confidence soar, focus shift, and priorities change enabling me to make the right decisions for my future. I made this investment in myself, but Paige made the investment in me. Would I do it again? 100 times yes.
-Bonnie Speck, Customer Transformation, Schneider Electric
Paige was the keynote speaker for a women’s luncheon I hosted. She did an amazing job sharing her story of moving from the corporate world to entrepreneur and connected that to how to navigate any next step in life. She took her time planning with us to anticipate the needs of the audience and tailored her presentation and materials to the group.
Paige has an amazing ability to relate to and engage with an audience. She not only leverages her personal experiences to inspire change, but also provides tangible action steps anyone can apply to achieve their goals. Months after the luncheon, attendees still tell me how much they enjoyed Paige’s message!
-Reanne Morrow, Director, Assurance Services at Amedisys, Financial Executives International
Paige is a Catalyst for Change! I have worked with Paige on several occasions over a 12 year period as a Client, Vendor Partner and now Coach. In every instance, Paige demonstrates her Leadership qualities related to change in the following ways: Personal Development, Team Oriented Goals and Organizational Success. This is accomplished through an emphasis on listening and compassion in an effort to help you as an individual or your organization get to the root cause of your need for change.
Paige is not a leader because of position or title but because you genuinely like her, you believe in who she is, you see her success, you know she cares deeply and you know you want to work with her. If you are a leader and no one is following you, then you are just on a walk. Paige is never alone and always on a journey for continual improvement.
-W. Stacy Rawls, former Vice President Global Production, Lightning Source
Paige is an invaluable thought partner for executives who are negotiating complex internal dynamics in their organizations. Through our discussions, she helped me think through org design options, how to influence critical stakeholders and in some cases when it was best to wait and allow things to evolve. Paige has a rare combination of skills – she thinks like a CEO and a CHRO, and this skillset creates a different level of conversation. I am grateful to have had her as a trusted advisor. I recommend her to HR leaders wanting to bring in an external coach and change agent and/or executives looking to grow their leadership during turbulent or fast changing times.
-Jeff A, VP Marketing and Product Development
Paige proved to be an invaluable coach, mentor and confidant during what was a very challenging season in my personal and professional life. The networking sessions, introductions, and coaching helped put my emotion on the shelf and get to work in concrete steps that moved things forward to a positive outcome. Paige was flexible and extremely patient throughout the process and tailored our sessions to fit my evolving needs. Her endless wisdom and creative solutions will continue to serve me for years to come.
-Ashton, Business Relationship Manager
“I contacted Paige after hearing her speak at an IABC chapter meeting, where she discussed the value of networking and business collaboration. As a hard-working, driven communicator, I mistakenly believed I didn’t have time to regularly meet with peers and develop long-term relationships. What I didn’t realize is that doing so makes me a stronger, more well-rounded communicator. My company and co-workers benefit from new ideas with proven results in the field, and I benefit from a steady resource of professionals eager to share what works. All things we know in our hearts, but Paige shines a light on the Why. I wholeheartedly recommend Paige to anyone who loves what they do and wants only to get better.”
-Mimi, Director, Marketing & Communications
“Paige’s ideas, connections and introductions ensured my success. She provided solid counsel and continuous support throughout. She stayed so close, offering tangible thoughts and advice. It kept me motivated, confident and progressing easily.”
-Melisa, Branch Manager
“I was extremely impressed with Paige’s technical abilities in presenting. Especially in her passion and level of obvious knowledge and expertise pertaining to change and change management. I highly recommend Paige as a plenary speaker, worship trainer and ask a consultant or coach in the area of organization development and change management.”
-Gary Hedges, CEO Hedges & Associates.
“I began working with Paige after deciding to end my two-year sabbatical and enter back into the professional working world. Because of a two-year employment gap, I had concerns about being considered a “worthy” candidate by employers. I also wasn’t sure if I wanted to make a career change. Not only did she help me craft my story –positioning my time off in a positive light, she validated my decisions through personal assessments and helped overcome anticipated roadblocks. From the start, she was focused on my success and always kept my vision at the center of our conversations. I have since found a job in which I think I can grow and thrive. I highly recommend Paige to anyone who is going through a transition in their professional life.”
-Amy J, Communications Executive
“I was so pleased with my refreshed resume. The process was simple, easy and well worth the investment. Paige offered suggestions and recommendations beyond the parameters of our initial engagement too.”
-Chuck, Vice President Revenue Recovery
“Paige is a great catalyst for motivation and action. With my work and travel schedule it was too easy to push this week’s goals into next week. Working with Paige was a high-return investment that kept me motivated and focused on purposeful execution. Paige’s style balances client engagement with no-nonsense accountability. Much of our work was virtual, with periodic in person sessions to dive deep on particular topics – Paige was flexible throughout and made it easy to accommodate my hectic life.”
-Dennis, VP Operations and Interim COO
“It was both heart-warming and pivotal to have Paige’s support. My wife and I hired her as we were both embarking on career changes during major life events that happened suddenly. She has such a vast network and was able to make several pivotal introductions. Paige is extremely creative, caring, responsive and was a valuable accountability partner. I can’t stress enough that she more than exceeded our expectations!”
-Kyle, SVP Product Strategy
“I approached Paige to speak at our TN SHRM Strategic Leadership Conference last year. She was absolutely phenomenal for a few reasons. First, her presentation skills are one of preparation and knowledge. The passion for her topic was one of the many powerful components throughout the presentation.
Paige displayed extreme control over the room that also allowed for engagement on many different levels. She was very entertaining and was able to put the room at ease even though it was a very large crowd in a relatively small space. That attributes to her flexible style.
I have been teaching at the university level for 15 years, training and development for organizations for 20 years and strategic planning for 25 years so when I witnessed Paige for the first time, I was impressed with her presentation skills, her credibility and her unconscious confidence.”
-Stacy Adams, Director of Human Resources, Ghertner
“Before working with Paige my career was off track and I was struggling to course correct. Attempts to work my way out of the problem resulted in long hours, over-committing and taking work personally. I knew change was needed, but I didn’t know where to start.
From our very first session, Paige proved to be a steadfast partner who was as committed to my success as I was. She listened intently, helped me reframe issues to see things from varying perspectives and provided knowledge and tools to help me define the values that were most important to me. Paige expertly guided me to self-recognize my derailers and helped me identify their early signs so that I could minimize, if not avoid, their negative impacts altogether. This work gave me clarity of purpose and enabled me to create attainable goals that would be both professionally and personally rewarding.
Nearly a year since that first session, I look back and am immensely proud of the work we accomplished together. working with Paige has been an extraordinary rewarding experience; a journey that has resulted in positive, genuine change and a career that aligns to my values and goals.”
