Experience in one to one coaching
As a former teacher and with a background in education and psychology, Noel has a deep understanding of the education sector. He has extensive coaching experience with both Primary and Post Primary Principals and has received consistently excellent feedback. Over the past 17 years he has coached leaders on Performance Management, Conflict Resolution, Leadership, Communication, Team Building, Delegation and Staff Engagement. Noel has delivered almost 300 hours of coaching to over 30 School Principals through the CSL coaching programme to date.
Noel knows the challenges faced by School Principals on a daily basis and drawing on the wealth and diversity of his experience, he works with them to gain insight into the issues and facilitates them to identify and prioritise goals, create plans and develop strategies for implementation, monitoring and review.
Noel has established a reputation for delivering practical coaching, which result in significant behavioural change, growth and development for senior leaders.
Noel has delivered coaching/training for the following:
The Department of Education & Skills
Bank of Ireland
“With Noel as my Executive Coach, I have renewed levels of energy and motivation and my newly honed leadership skills have had a dramatic impact on my performance and wellbeing. I have acquired a new level of self-awareness and have the clarity and focus to lead with confidence. Noel enabled me to take stock, see things more objectively, identify my priorities and set goals. I no longer feel overwhelmed and have a more realistic perspective on what is possible. The coaching sessions with Noel were invaluable and I am more resilient to face the challenges ahead”
Newly Appointed School Principal
Noel’s advice, impartial listening and guidance was an incredible support to me. There were areas of school development that I wanted to progress and the uninterrupted conversations with Noel, in my office, allowed me to take ideas from a conceptual stage to reality. Noel’s familiarity with the challenges of being a principal in the Secondary education sector was very helpful and reassuring. In a role where your function is often multi-faceted, fast paced and independent the expertise of an experienced coach is extremely worthwhile. I would highly recommend Noel Brosnan.
School PrincipalIt's great to talk to Noel who listens and hears what I am trying to say but also has the skills to move me forward - skills I know are tried and tested. It's important to trust the advice and where it is coming from. Coaching with Noel has helped me identify my strengths and validate my leadership style. I am also more aware of areas that that I need to strengthen. Noel gave me some good strategies for more effective outcomes from staff meetings and staff roles.
