We had Sharon train us on Leadership & Coaching in TDS for a management team of 8 people, with all different ranges of leader experience and needs. Sharon very quickly understood the needs of each attendee and delivered such an effective and practical training course. We all took something from the course, as well as learning new skills to be better leaders and be able to coach others. This was the first time our company had invested in something like this and is something we are organising to do again and have asked Sharon to deliver our second course. She was very easy to understand, made the environment comfortable to ask questions and really challenged everyone who attended. Our management team provided great feedback and helped them be the great leadership team they are today, and really helped bond our management team to work better! Highly recommend and can’t wait to work with you again!
Why We Do It?
At Coach Executive Ireland, we believe that the success of work/life all comes down to one thing:
- The relationship you have with yourself
- The relationship you have with others.
- The key to any positive relationship is good communication.
So it stands to reason that if you have a clear understanding of yourself – strengths/weaknesses, your preferred “modus operandi”, it’s half the battle!
You are then in a powerful position to move that understanding forward to better comprehend those around you.
We all see life through a different lens – a lens shaped by our knowledge, values, beliefs, and life experiences.
Each of us has preferences in terms of how we behave, how we communicate, and how we learn.
The Challenges We Face
One of the biggest challenges we face in the fast-paced work environments we work in,
is that there is rarely time to step back and examine where we are, who we are
and perhaps, most importantly, who we are surrounded by.
We spend so much of our time down the rabbit hole of the latest project, task, or deadline, that we don’t see the wood for the trees.
Through coaching and workshops, people get the chance to take a breath, step back and understand more about what it means to connect:
Too many people are unhappy, performing below par, creating unnecessary conflict, bringing their worries home so it has a ripple effect in their partners/spouses/families.
This leads to stress and over an extended period, can lead to burnout and poor mental and physical health.This is not a theory, this is a fact. We have seen it through our own personal experiences and that of our clients.
This is our Why; To create better work environments through increased self-awareness, improved confidence, and clear, empathetic communication.
Kind Words from our Clients
Sharon, facilitated a communications workshop with our European teams at one of Enterprise Ireland’s annual regional conferences. She provided energy, guidance and expertise to this multicultural group and engaged learners in an interactive workshop experience. Sharon has a strong understanding of communication challenges and needs in a busy dynamic environment where targets must be met and clients supported with their needs.
Sharon is a fantastic guide, coach, and mentor. Sharon cares about her client – she takes time to understand you as an individual and then works to show you how to unblock situations and develop a new perspective. The work leads to a very powerful transformation. Sharon is intuitive, and empathetic kind yet she keeps you focused on the task at hand. I couldn’t recommend her enough.
Sharon recently delivered a series of leadership coaching workshops to existing and newly appointed leaders in Ward Solution. These workshops followed a period of considerable change due to a major organisational restructuring within the organisation. She was an engaging and knowledgeable facilitator who quickly identified the key challenges facing the leadership team and worked with us to identify options to address these core challenges . These group workshops were followed by a series of one-to-one coaching sessions which myself and all my colleagues found extremely beneficial. I have no hesitation in recommending Sharon as a leadership/executive coach and workshops facilitator.
