Winner of Coach of the Year and Business Coach of the Year ICF (International Coach Federation) Ireland among other awards.
His personal philosophy: “I love working with organisations and people who want to push out their self-imposed boundaries to achieve more for themselves and their organisations leading to happier, more fulfilling, more challenging and rewarding careers and lives”. His coaching style is to give space to ‘press the pause button’ to see more clearly the current challenges and the opportunities. The coachees get the chance to step back and reflect on what is really important and, even more importantly, what they want to do about it, and to get clarity about the destination and the routes to get there. Pat provides the positive support with challenge, where appropriate, to help people reach this destination in a timely manner. He finds it is interesting to observe people achieve much more than they initially thought possible.
Pat’s coach training includes an Advanced Management Diploma in Business & Executive Coaching (Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School) and a Diploma in Coaching (Coaching Development UK). His educational background includes a Marketing Degree (MMII Grad) from the Marketing Institute of Ireland, a Certificate in Training & Continuing Education from the National University of Ireland, a People Skills for Managers course and a Core Skills of Management course he completed at the Irish Management Institute.
Pat holds a PCC (Professional Certified Coach) credential by ICF (International Coach Federation).
