Volunteer Spotlight - Paul Bozik

Featuring GCATD Board Member, Paul Bozik. Paul serves as the VP of Finance and as one of the conveners on the OD SIG. He says he enjoys serving in both of these capacities because it gives him a chance to learn from others' experiences. He says it helps keep his ‘saw sharp.’

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.

I have lived in the Cincinnati area now for 10 years. I am originally from the Pittsburgh area. My wife Erin and I came here for an opportunity with my current employer, Molson Coors. I received my bachelors in I/O Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and a MBA from Seton Hill University, a Catholic liberal arts college located in my hometown of Greensburg, PA. I have had a diverse work background starting in medical research, then moving to management consulting, operations and retail management, and finally landing in various people development roles.

Q: Share details about your role with Molson Coors.

My role in people development at Molson Coors is one of wearing many hats in both corporate and field organizations, including leadership and talent development, program design and implementation, facilitation and delivery, performance management and succession planning, measurement and evaluation, and instructional design.

Q: What is it you enjoy most about being in a learning role?

In my experience of the learning role you are either driving or supporting initiatives aligned to top line or bottom line growth. But when you get to the heart of the matter, you help people learn and possibly even become something, to transform them. That is a very good thing, being able to help people. It is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day, but is important to remember the human side of people development.

Q. Where is your ultimate vacation destination?

Tough question and hard to answer, but I would say anywhere in Caribbean. I have been to St. John and St. Thomas. I really enjoy snorkeling and being in or on the water. I also really enjoy our great national parks; I have been to nine thus far. I need to get busy if I want to see the other 51 that I haven’t seen yet.

Q: Tell me about your involvement with GCATD.

I serve as the VP of Finance and as one of the conveners on the OD SIG. I really enjoy serving in both of these capacities because it gives me a chance to learn from others' experiences. It helps me keep my ‘saw sharp.’

Q: What advice would you give to others interested in volunteering?

In addition to serving on the GCATD board, I also serve on another board, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butler County. My takeaways from both are that there are many ways to contribute: committees, special interest groups, or advisory boards. Don’t feel that you have to be everything to everybody, especially since there are so many other roles we are responsible for, just do what you can, everyone has something to offer.

Q: What do you like to do for fun?

Being a parent to two great kids, Kylie (11) and Kamdyn (7), most of my fun involves supporting their endeavors, soccer, volleyball, and scouting. However, when I do have time I enjoy writing, cooking, and photography.
