argy mariolis


Argy’s belief in and respect for people and their uniqueness, strengths and inherent leadership capability has been refined over 25 years experience of leading and implementing business process and system change.

His career has spanned diverse industry sectors and business functions including Finance, Human Resources, Supply Chain and Technology, and has included many well known organisations, Telstra, Alcatel, BHP, Ansett, ATO, Ericsson, Coopers & Lybrand, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young and National Australia Bank.

Having led large teams of up to 100 people in complex business and system change, Argy has gained a wealth of experience and understanding of organisational dynamics, complexities and objectives that is both broad and deep. This proves to be of significant value in Argy’s coaching, for clients that face challenges and changes in these environments and who seek to enhance their leadership, performance and overall well-being and balance.

In parallel to leading strategic change initiatives Argy has provided internal coaching supporting senior leaders, new and emerging leaders, project and change directors as well as individuals facing transitions to explore, discover, learn and apply their strengths. 

With a wealth of experience in organisational change, leadership and personal growth Argy has established Paragon Coaching Pty Ltd as an avenue where he can devote his time and focus on his passion for serving organisations and individuals to discover that they are the leaders they have been waiting for.
