I am a passionate educator with more than 20 years experience in the academic and consultancy worlds. I was educated in three continents and have taught in 2. I spent the last 15 years teaching in some of the top universities/programs in the U.S. I specialize in communication, international development/ relations, and human rights include gender and youth.
I have a rich/broad experience in mentoring the young to transition from high school to college, and from college to their first jobs. Because of my multilingual and multicultural background, I have supported students in adjusting their skills to their interests and the interests of the market. I have also helped young people make education and career choices, provided support during application processes and most importantly built their confidence to deploy their strengths and assets to achieve their goals.
Because I’m a deep believer in gender justice and equal opportunity for all, I am very supportive of the young in their diversity and differences. I take great satisfaction in guiding the young generation towards achieving their best and I rejoice in their successes. Mentors have played a key role in my own professional accomplishments. I seek to provide the best mentorship I’m capable of.
Pat is an experienced and award winning Executive and Career Coach specializing in the different areas where coaching can be a powerful tool to improve someone’s professional experience: Career, Leadership, Business and Performance.
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).
-Develop and manage the mentoring relationship. Initially, this involves assessing your own readiness and interest, selecting someone to mentor and getting to know each other. Over time, it means working to build trust, set goals and keep the mentoring relationship on track.
–Sponsor. Opening doors and advocating for your mentee can allow them to develop new skills and gain meaningful visibility. You can create and seek new opportunities for them and connect them with people in your network.
–Survey the environment. Mentors keep a watchful eye on the horizon, looking for both threatening organizational forces and positive opportunities. You want to be on the lookout for include rumors, people taking an adversarial position relative to the mentee, shortcuts through the system, low-visibility or no-win assignments and high-visibility or win-win assignments.
–Guide and counsel. You may serve as a confidant, sounding-board and personal advisor to your mentee, especially as the relationship grows deeper over time. You may help your mentee understand conflict or explore ways to deal with problems, for example. You also can warn your mentee about behavior that is a poor fit with organizational culture.
–Teach. Many mentors enjoy the teaching aspects of mentoring, which mean not only imparting their knowledge but also sharing their experiences and recommending assignments.
–Model. Just while observing you mentees pick up many things: ethics, values and standards; style, beliefs and attitudes; methods and procedures. They are likely to follow your lead, adapt your approach to their own style, and build confidence through their affiliation with you. As a mentor, you need to be keenly aware of your own behavior.
–Motivate and inspire. Mentors support, validate and encourage their mentees. When you help your mentees link their own goals, values and emotions to the larger organizational agenda, they become more engaged in their work and in their own development.
You will not do all seven of these things all the time. Each mentoring situation is different, and you’ll need to shift your role depending on the person and their goals. For example, if you’re mentoring an up-and-coming project manager who will be moving on to another assignment soon, your focus may stay on her near-term challenges and preparation for the next step. Another mentee may be need help navigating the organization and building his career, so sponsoring and protecting may be your focus.
Always remember that mentoring is a shared job. You aren’t solely responsible for creating a successful mentoring relationship. The person being mentored needs to be flexible, honest, open and receptive to feedback and insight. He or she needs to be willing and able to take action in pursuit of goals, to invest in learning and to take steps toward needed change. The mentee also needs to be willing to give you feedback and talk about what is or isn’t working well in the relationship.
As you work together, you’ll make course corrections, the relationship will deepen, and you’ll discover that being a mentor is no longer an unnecessary, expendable task. Instead it will be a rewarding one for you that has a profound impact on others.
