Paul Jeune

THE ALTITUDE LEADER

Leadership at every level

MY MISSION

Using a decade of lessons learned from high-performance coaching in a high stakes environment to make your team, business or organisation improve its culture, leadership and ability to win.

ABOUT ME

With over 25,000 hours Coaching experience I have developed an unparalleled insight into the tendencies and power of human nature.

I have spent the past 11 years teaching people in one of the most hostile environments on the planet. An environment which is unconducive to learning, unforgiving of mistakes and paralysing to human performance. By realising the possibilities of human potential I have developed the skills to turn that hostile, unforgiving environment into one where people thrive, grow and contribute on a massive scale.
By employing several key fundamental rules learned in pressure driven situations I can show you and your team how to leverage the environment you work and live in, so it becomes the single biggest factor in fuelling the productivity of your organisation.
These are the same fundamental rules I use on a daily basis not just skydiving but whilst running my own highly successful CrossFit Affiliate in order to achieve phenomenal results.
By employing a 'leadership at every level' mentality I can show you the tactics and strategies that have transformed the most insular, timid and unconfident people into focussed, driven and courageous leaders, and more importantly how to impart that mentality within your organisation.
With a balanced mix of skydiving examples following a traceable route into business applications you can employ the same tactics and strategies within your company or team to create an unwavering, positive, winning culture.

A True Leader Is One WHO Empowers Others

SERVICES

All the lessons and examples given during your presentation are ones learnt and tested not in a classroom, laboratory or spreadsheet but at the apex of life and death situations. These are lessons tested and proven under the hardship and pressure of a 'zero margin for error' environment.

Keynote presentation

catered to your organisations needs

I can structure a keynote speech to suit the needs of your organisation. Regardless of the event, I will intertwine edge of your seat stories from a decade of skydiving with leadership examples catered towards the theme of your event

Set Presentation 1

Environment & Culture in your workplace - leveraging weakness
60 mins plus 30 for Q & A
Heavily catered to improving the culture across all aspects of your organisation In this presentation I will explain the concept of "environmental vote" and how the environment you create is directly responsible for the results of your team. I explain the reasons behind a poor or toxic work environment and how to leverage them out and flip them upside down. 
I will explore the 'leadership at every level' strategy and give clear tangible examples how to create a culture where people want to turn up to the workplace and give it their all on a daily basis.

SET PRESENTATION 2

Turning your team into level 5 players.
60 mins plus 30 for Q & A
Designed to take an already successful team and allow them to break through a performance ceiling, in this presentation, I discuss the myth of 'flawless execution'. The OODA loop & its relationship to winning and I look in detail at the idea of leadership capital. With solid examples of high-pressure instructional principles, this talk gives proven powerful takeaways which can be implemented daily within your organisation.

Organisation analysis

An in depth breakdown of your teams performance with tactics and strategies to become better

I will spend a full working week within your organisation. By spending quality time with different departments and groups I will observe how your team interact with each other and meet with individuals to discuss how they perceive the workplace. I will take your team through activities which highlight issues around communication and team integration and give proven techniques to create performance improvements. I will discuss my observations in person with the senior leadership and carry out a presentation to the organisation with a brief overview of how to move forward. You will receive a complete breakdown of my observations over the 5 days together with a detailed portfolio on recommendations to create long-lasting positive results.

Rueben Faletuai

Manager, Skydive Paradise, Glenorchy NZ

I first met Paulie back in 2015. I was in his original class as he took over the commercial skydiving school. From the set piece, Paulie had a straight forward no nonsense approach to teaching. The job of taking a group of young naive kids and teaching them to skydive would challenge the toughest person. Paulie not only taught us how to skydive. Our lessons went much deeper, and by the end of it we walked out with a fundamental set of morals that could be applied to any aspect of our lives.

Learning to skydive, I was very much a cautious, low confident type guy. I was always the one hiding. From a spectators point of view it would have seemed that I would not go far in this line of work. I strongly believe that if it weren’t for Paulie’s help, I wouldn’t have. He was able to understand how I operate and tailored a teaching method that I was able to understand and grow. He didn’t just leave me behind. I’ve seen him do this with many students, in various ways. 

After leaving the school, I went on to one of the busiest drop zones in the world where I was able to apply those morals. In 4 short years, I was able to go from thinking I’d never make it in this industry, to being the head tandem master with a number of staff under my leadership. I put this down to applying those key morals he taught me. 

I’ve found that I’ve been able to apply Paulie’s teachings in other aspects of my life, following the same morals with similar success. This is just my own experience with Paulie, and I’m certain that there are 100’s of others with similar experiences with him.

Between January and September of 2018, I was coached by Paul Jeune at the NZ Skydiving School.
Having just completed a similar programme with a seperate skydiving company, I was pretty blown away with the high level and standard Paul taught at.

He had a crazy amount of knowledge and a passion for coaching far beyond what I previously had.
Throughout the various areas of our training, he gave detailed and in-depth coaching and made sure each student's different learning abilities were catered to.

As we approached the end of the course he went out of his way to share different leadership skills and qualities to take with us, goals to work on, and different positives & negatives to expect throughout our career, a lot of which I have been able to transfer into my life outside of skydiving.

Compared to a lot of the coaching I've had, whether it's sporting, scuba diving, carpentry apprenticeship, or schooling, Paul is a massive standout.

Cheers Pauly !!

While I have had many teachers, guardians and boss figures throughout my life. There are very few of those people that I can consider a mentor or a true leader.
Paul Jeune is definitely one of those
 people. During my time training with him at the Skydiving School, he managed to get 2groups of vastly different individuals, to all strive for greatness.

When on the course I held a close relationship with Paulie, and would often a number of times find myself back after class, asking for help in all areas far and beyond skydiving. Paulie would listen and help you dissect what you were thinking, and always help guide you to the same outcome, bettering yourself.

Looking back, my time working with Paul ended up setting me up with the correct tools to take on any challenge in life, and I walked away with much more than just knowing how to jump from a plane.

 I attended the New Zealand Skydiving School on the course of January 2016.
Paul Jeune was the
course director.

Personally, I struggled during this course. My physical ability was poor and I required much attention. Paul was extremely supportive and guided me through the most difficult parts. Due to his mentoring, I was able to harness the underlying causes of my poor ability and take control of them. I found that the biggest battle was a mental battle. Paul truly understood this and his support and intervention was key in helping me to succeed in skydiving. During the course I went through a huge transformation; I learnt a lot about myself and my own capabilities, the power of my own mind and how to overcome and persevere

Through difficult times. Paul was professional at all times; he knew exactly when to nurture and when to be tough. Without his coaching, I would not have gained the confidence to continue to challenge myself.

I’ve had the privilege of knowing Paul for the past two years and can hands down say that he has been the most influential person I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in my life.  He turned my greatest fear into one of my greatest accomplishments, I was absolutely terrified of public speaking and without his encouragement and belief in me I wouldn’t be standing up in front of a class teaching today.  He gave me the confidence and taught me great leadership skills.  His calm and encouraging approach to any situation pushed me to be the best version of myself.  He can teach a whole room fill of individuals at all different learning abilities using different techniques to get the same result, he has taught me the same teaching techniques to cater to different people which work in measurable ways.  I highly recommend Paul in any aspect, he always has time for you and goes above and beyond to help without a second thought.  Absolute legend of a mentor!

Many Thanks,

Shits definitely been put into perspective the last few months. Bro I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from your mindset on all this. Its been far more useful than any skydiving skill. Its put me in the position I'm in now. Surrounded by completely badass instructors who are down to make me better. It's like I know that I'm in a position to achieve whatever I want. Thank you Paul

Paul epitomises the concept of extreme ownership, in business and leadership situations, family life and friendship. He lives by his values and strives every day to hold the people around him accountable to the goals they've set to improve their lives. Paul has played a huge part in my life by not only helping me on the journey to be the best I can be physically but also mentally. From barely being able to get out of bed from back pain to working out at dawn 5 days a week - he's shown patience, discipline, inspiration. Paul is the real deal.
