Coaching is relatively new to Ireland, and while the term coaching has connotations with sports activities, the word ‘coaching’ is derived from ‘stage coach’: to literally transport a person from one place to another. We would like to support people to move forward or create change.

Take a different path…

Coaching is really the partnering of a coach and an individual or a group. By partnering together we will explore and create possibilities together to reach your goals or desired outcomes. We encourage empowerment, respect for learning types and perspectives and the willingness to strive for change, whatever change means to you.

Here at YellowWood we offer a range of programmes and services:

  • Career Transition
  • Outplacement
  • Team Coaching
  • Executive Coaching

Executive coaching provides the ideal platform to improve organisational performance and maximise individual potential. I create a safe environment to raise awareness and explore opportunities for growth and facilitate change. My coaching style combines an intuitive approach with and promotes forward-focused and solution-orientated outcomes. Desired outcomes are mutually identified and agreed upon in advance, which then places the client in a position of empowerment to take action. The actual coaching process is a conversation of moving the client to gain personal insight and be responsible to focus on the goals set.
