How to Apply North Stars on Monday Morning
Every company has a purpose. The challenge is not in identifying it, it’s in bringing it to life…through daily, scaleable action. This keynote exists to ensure that your team’s collective and individual purpose is the cultural foundation of everything you do. It represents who you are, what you stand for, and how you show up—all in one.
Once optimized for action, purpose can be the strongest unifier we have. It is a 365 driver of performance and engagement, a magnet for recruiting, the glue of retention, the soul of leadership, and the DNA of WHY we do what we do. Ultimately, it’s how we scale championship culture – with CONFIDENCE.
Paul trains these principles to organizations worldwide, all in the spirit of WINNING MONDAY with purpose.
The Mindset and Game Plan Required to WIN
Sales is the lifeblood of every organization. Without it, there is no business to operate, people to employ, purpose to fulfill, or impact to ignite in the market.
CONFIDENCE is what makes it all possible.
Paul realized how confidence can be the ultimate competitive advantage in sales. This keynote unpacks exactly how he broke the all-time Super Bowl revenue record and transformed cellar-dwelling NBA teams from 28th in league revenue to 2nd.
The lessons and insights are industry-agnostic and universally applicable.

Paul Epstein, founder of Purpose Labs, successfully steered business teams that executed billion-dollar NFL campaigns, broke Super Bowl revenue records, and generated league-leading sales results for cellar-dwelling NBA clubs. He then served as a consultant for the largest brands in business and sports.

Now, in The Power of Playing Offense, Epstein invites you to meet him at the 50 and get real about taking a people-first approach that elevates purpose, performance, and impact.
As the “Why Coach” inside the San Francisco 49ers front office, one question kept Epstein up at night: Who is coaching the coaches? He noticed a crucial gap in the development of leaders: they were expected to lead others before they learned to lead themselves. In an effort to fill this gap in the market, Epstein curated this interactive playbook—and its corresponding website www.powerofplayingoffense.com—for influencers and leaders like you, with more than 50 activities, tools, and strategies you can implement on Monday morning.
The Power of Playing Offense will help you level up your leadership and transform your team from paycheck driven to purpose driven, from adversity to achievement, from disengaged to inspired, and from success to significance
