RENEW, RE-IMAGINE, RE-ALIGN and RESTORE.
Acting as your “Chief Integrity Counsel”, we can provide a trusted and objective extra set of eyes to help a leader evaluate situations in order to process what path or response is most in line with the values and priorities of the leader and the organization.
Providing a trusted and objective extra set of eyes to help a leader plan for and pursue a goal, strategy or project in a manner that factors in the values and priorities of the leader and the organization along the way.
Helping an organization and its leaders “renew” their understanding of God’s purpose for work and business, “re-imagine” their leadership and organization aligned with a bigger “Why”, and “re-align” the organization’s core values and culture to reflect and support its re-imagined vision.
God created work as a good thing and created people to work. People are more “fully human” when engaged in meaningful work that unleashes their God-given productivity and creativity and creates economic prosperity in a culture of Shalom built on Biblical principles of relationships, community and human dignity.
God created a world that flourishes through our productivity and creativity and then commanded us to be instruments of its flourishing. An organization adds to the beauty of the world and assists in God’s restorative plan for His Kingdom by creating opportunities, economic prosperity, goods and services, and by solving problems and “repairing” the world, in ways that help families and communities to flourish, and by extending it culture of Shalom to all creation it touches. In the process, the work of the organization takes on deeper meaning for its own people.
If people are called to glorify God in all they do and “love their neighbor”, then organizations must exist to do the same. An organization does so principally through serving people–by providing opportunities for individuals to express aspects of their God-given identities in creative and meaningful work, by providing opportunities, economic prosperity, goods and services, and by solving problems and “repairing” the world, in ways that enable families and communities to flourish and by creating a culture of Shalom conducive to the flourishing of all creation it touches.
It is rare to find someone with such deep wisdom and experience in both the ways of man and the ways of God, especially one who can navigate the former while glorifying the latter. Paul is a rock, a gifted advisor for the business matters that truly matter.
Paul’s presence at our visioning retreat brought much wisdom and discernment. I was blown away by his thoughtful ideas and Godly wisdom. All his years of experience with the business and non-profit worlds bring so much to the table.
During my 29 years at Cravath . . . I rarely encountered anyone who could rival Paul’s integrity, commitment to excellence, and dedication to his clients and his firm.
It is fair to say that Paul was exceptionally important to the work of [our organization] at a very critical point in its growth and development, and I considered him an irreplaceable partner to me.
I needed some Godly counsel and . . . was deeply moved by Paul's heart to listen to my heart and the situation. . . . I highly recommend him . . . to everyone.
Paul, and the resources at Integrous, combine a deep faith with deep knowledge to bring out a depth of steward-leadership I could not have gotten to on my own. The guidance and advice have now benefitted all levels of our endeavor – Advisory Board, Management, Sponsors, and Entrepreneurs – all for God’s glory!
If you are drawn to the ideas that drive us, like seeing a divine purpose for business and work, creating an organizational culture of shalom, and using business and work to participate in God’s restorative plan for the world by adding to the beauty of the world, then we would like to share some of our favorite resources (including those that inspired us to form Integrous). We also welcome your suggestions of other helpful guidance.
Our logo is a registered service mark that incorporates a Celtic knot sometimes referred to as the “Trinity Knot”. The “Trinity Knot” is made up of a three-cornered “triquetra” or “trefoil” interlaced with a circle. In mathematics, the trefoil knot (named after the trefoil plant—or three-leaf clover) is the simplest example of a nontrivial knot, meaning that it is not possible to “untie” the trefoil knot in three dimensions without cutting it. The triquetra has been used for centuries to represent the Biblical Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The addition of the unbroken circle has been used to symbolize eternity and, when interwoven in the triquetra, the indivisible and equal unity of the three elements. We believe it is a powerful representation of integrity as “the quality or state of being complete or undivided” and of our desire to live undivided lives informed and guided by our faith in the God of the Bible. As a representation of the Biblical Trinity, it also symbolizes the perfect community that exists in a culture of shalom.
