Who Are Paragon?

The Origins of Paragon 

Paragon coaching was established in Melbourne to work with leaders and individuals seeking to optimise their capability for leadership, increase their level of contribution and thus maximise success in their work place, life and community. The founders of Paragon Coaching, Argy Mariolis and Neal Lynch, have gained first-hand experience of the benefits of coaching through practise in large complex organisations with teams, leaders and individuals. The resulting change and growth experience by individuals involved in a coaching relationship has led to improved relationships, leadership, performance and satisfaction across their work and personal life.

Paragon Coaching reflects our mission, desire and passion to make coaching more accessible to a broader audience that is committed to achieving more in leadership, personal growth, contribution and success in their work, life and communities.
