Experience in one to one coaching


Aideen is an accredited Executive and Leadership Coach with prior experience of designing, building and leading teams and delivering sustainable results in complex organisations such as the NTMA, NAMA and Coca Cola. Formerly a senior executive and legal professional her leadership objective was always to develop high levels of trust, accountability, collaboration, confidence and performance in her teams using a coaching and mentoring approach.

Aideen focuses on both the practical issues and challenges of the leader’s day-to-day role but also on possibility, growth and change. She provides a safe, creative and supportive space away from the day-to-day pressures so clients can reflect and think and move forward, critical to principals and deputies.

Recent 1:1 coaching in the public and private sector includes working with a leader on the nature of organisational leadership, building personal resilience and balance and formulating long term objectives; providing maternity leave coaching to women and their line managers to support continued career progression, encouraging open and honest communication and team/business continuity; coaching the head of a start-up business unit, as a technical expert now in a senior management role working on leadership and communication styles, EQ, stakeholder management and influencing inside and outside the organisation.

Aideen provided team coaching to a cohort of principal officers to support the development of skills and competencies including challenges of managing remote teams due to Covid-19, training and mentoring, improving team effectiveness and delegation, building peer group consensus around a change project and restructure.

Aideen’s goal is to support clients to find their own style of effective leadership, a way of being that supports them in dealing with the core challenge of leadership, understanding what makes people tick and how to get the best from them and for them, while delivering on organisational objectives.
