As part of the Achieve More team I bring 5 years experience of coaching with senior management in the Irish police service. I listen with empathy and create a space for managers to think and reflect as they develop in their role. My sessions create a psychological safe space where clients talk openly and candidly about their developmental areas without a sense deficit. I help to ensure clarity and focus in setting goals. I am warm, energetic and optimistic. My coaching sessions are built around the concept of appreciative inquiry.
I have over 29 years’ experience in the public sector. I am currently in charge of senior leadership development in An Garda Síochána. Over the last 10 years I have designed, delivered, facilitated and evaluated leadership development programmes for supervisory ranks, middle, senior and executive management within the police service. These development programmes insure a balance between the operational functionaity of each rank and core supervisory, management and leadership competencies.
I have implemented Mentoring programmes at supervisory, middle management and senior management level. I coordinate and manage external executive coaching for senior and executive management.
I have introduced and embedded the use of psychometric tools for all management levels as a form for personal development including 360 feedback using Emotional Intelligence competencies.
I have the experience of working with other police services in Europe, Africa and the United States.
