Paul Pringle
I have always been fascinated by the few factors that distinguish happy, inspired, and creative elite performers from the rest.

LDC coach and facilitator

I am the Managing Director of Infinite Group, a provider of strategic HR consultancy services, elite executive coaching and facilitation, and leadership programme design and delivery for senior professionals.

My varied, in-depth HR experience has given me a unique insight into the factors that determine elite performance for an individual or team. I hold degrees in law, commerce, career development and psychology, and bring 15 years of HR experience from private practice employment law, in-house HR consulting, outdoor experiential leadership development, and elite performance psychology.

I am on the Leadership Development Centre’s provider panel for the public sector, the MBIE All of Government panel for the provision of HR Consulting and Services, and a professional member of HRINZ and CDANZ.

My clients include the leadership teams and senior leaders of the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Te Papa, Victoria University, Department of Internal Affairs, the Ministries of Education and Social Development, Department of Conservation, MBIE, TE Connectivity, Bell Gully, and New Zealand Rugby.

Five areas of focus

I enable the potential of my clients’ performance using five key questions in five focus areas (whether individual, team or organisational):

  • Strategy – what are your greatest priorities, and why?
  • Leadership – how do you enable the potential and creativity of others?
  • Resilience – how do you maintain elite performance in yourself?
  • Career – what does challenging meaningful work look like to you?
  • Creativity – how do you enable an environment for trial (and error)?

Bespoke solutions

I deliver on these five areas through a range of services including:

  • Executive coaching
  • Team strategy and planning
  • Conflict and elite performance facilitation retreats
  • Strategic human resources insight and advice to boards and senior leadership teams
  • Designing and delivering bespoke leadership development programmes for senior professionals.

Rather than a ‘one stop shop’ or ‘silver bullet’ template provider, I work closely with a select few clients to look at their specific challenges, before committing to bespoke design and delivery.

My solutions are unique to each client and use the latest elite performance tools from science, academia, professional sport, and the arts.
