He now works with an international network of mentor trainers, supporting organisations in developing capability in coaching and mentoring.
Growing the Client, Growing the Coach: Is coaching about helping clients solve problems, or helping them to mature and grow in capability? Can coaches really help clients with fundamental change, if they are not also focusing on their own journey to maturity? How do we move from simple, linear thinking about coaching and mentoring to complex, adaptive systems thinking? Is goal-setting, as normally practised, actually a dangerous distraction from coaching as a process of discovery process? How much of executive coaching is a convenient way for leaders to tick the box and avoid deep involvement in their self-development? David will raise these and other controversial ideas and attempt to provide some context around them. The answers to these questions will of course be up to you.
DR. CATRIONA BRADLEY
Dr. Catriona Bradley is Executive Director of the newly established Irish Institute of Pharmacy (IIOP). She previously held various roles in Boots (Ireland) across the areas of Pharmacy, Education, Research and HR before being appointed as Pharmacy Director and Superintendent for Ireland. As Head of Capability in Boots (Ireland) she coached leaders at all levels of the organisation and established a mentoring programme for pharmacists. The IIOP is responsible for establishing and maintaining a new continuing professional development system for pharmacists, as well as leading the development of the pharmacy profession in Ireland. This new system is innovative in that it will focus on outcomes rather than inputs and will require pharmacists to engage in reflective practice.
Catriona holds Diplomas in Quality Improvement, Legal Studies and Coaching, and is a qualified executive and personal coach. Catriona’s vision is to develop a coaching and mentoring culture within pharmacy in Ireland, supporting and enabling pharmacists (and consequently the pharmacy profession) to realise their full potential.
Pat is currently Group Human Resources Director with An Post, a position which he has held for 10 years and is based in the GPO, Dublin. Prior to that, he was General Manager Human Resources with Waterford Crystal up to 2004, having been previously a Personnel Officer with Bord Na Mona, at Head Office, Dublin.
Pat has spent much of his HR career designing, leading and facilitating successful change implementation in multi-unionised environments. He has successfully managed a series of business crises and helped transform the culture from one largely dominated by adversarial industrial relations to a more mature culture of co-operation and a partnership approach around the success of the business with employees and their Union representatives; resulting in business turnaround, growth and significant improvement in bottom line results.
Central to the success of these change initiatives was greater effectiveness on the “HR basics” and a deeper focus on the strategic agenda, increased employee involvement, greater employee business literacy through communications, a partnership approach with staff and Trade Unions and developing management and leadership capability at all levels in the organisation. In this regard, the investment in developing managers coaching skills remains key to ensuring greater effectiveness in addressing business challenges and achieving the Company’s vision.
Andrew is the Director of IMI’s postgraduate Diplomas in Executive Coaching and Organisational Behaviour. He has an extensive executive coaching practice both nationally and internationally and has research interests in the areas of Work-Life Balance, Competency Based Interviewing and Negotiation.
Hardly a day goes by without the word Innovation appearing in the business news. Companies look to their innovators to identify new opportunities for growth. How do coaches support their clients in this area? How are the innovators developed through coaching? Andrew McLaughlin challenges coaches to first look at themselves to assess their own “innovation quotient”. Are we as coaches “doing the same thing and expecting different results”? Innovators share certain psychological attributes that predispose them to being innovative. The executive coach needs to be alert to such factors to support our clients in navigating new territory. Andrew takes Intuitive Coaching as an example of how innovative approaches to coaching can deliver astonishing results. He will share with us the results of research he has carried out in Ireland on behalf of the IDA, on the Irish Mind and entrepreneurship.

One year individual coaching journey: “This coaching journey has changed my life; my perspectives, my understanding of myself, the way I think, feel and act and my performance to the better. I would not have believed it was possible to gain so much value, wisdom and insight only from conversations with a coach, but I realize that this is more than coaching. It is experiencing being totally honest, open and accessible towards another human being that accept you for who you are, but believe in you even more than yourself. I feel like a renewed person with tremendous energy and options. Thank you Berit!” Director in a telecom company
