Paul Schwer believes in a triple bottom line: people, planet, profits. A leader in sustainable engineering, his company designs some of the highest performing buildings in the world. In an industry with 100% employment, culture is Paul’s differentiator in attracting and retaining top talent. “Culture is fragile,” he says. “It’s hard to create and sustain, but easy to damage.”
Paul’s keys to conquering tough team decisions:
- Act quickly.
- Get comfortable being uncomfortable — you can’t fix everything.
- Talk about the elephant in the room.
- Have clarity, have transparency, collaborate to resolution.
Paul has led PAE to massive growth in revenue (384%) and workforce (from 96 to 380 team members).
