“I had the pleasure of meeting Deirdre Foley when she came on board as an external executive coach for a Leadership Development program we were undertaking. From the start Deirdre built strong rapport and trust with Leadership and their extended teams. Deirdre demonstrated perceptiveness in questioning and giving feedback at an individual level and was a skilled facilitator for our team workshops. Through Deirdre our leaders received tailored development plans and their teams were coached to become high functioning and effective. Deirdre is a rare coaching find, and someone I would hope to work with again in the future.”

“Deirdre is a very talented coach, she is curious, driven, emphatic and one hundred per cent focussed on getting you to be a better professional version of yourself. She is relentless in her pursuit of shaping your thinking around who you really are. Despite the challenges of change Deirdre manages to be your guide, facilitates you through difficult questions and shapes you to be more professional, more self aware and ultimately a more rounded person than you were when you started. Working with Deirdre is a great investment to make in yourself.”
“I approached Deirdre for coaching and guidance in the lead up to a big work-related decision. She guided me very effectively, supporting me to be strategic, confident and definite. I found her approach remarkably motivating and would recommend her services to any senior professionals seeking a boost.”
“I worked with Deirdre over the period of 6 months in 2019. During that time, she helped me figure out how to address specific work challenges (i.e. how to get buy in for projects I was leading, how to understand the motivations of different stakeholders etc.) She also worked with me to think about what I wanted from my career, together with how it fit within my overall life. She asked excellent (challenging) questions that made me reflect on these topics and held me accountable to putting in steps to address them. I hope to continue working with Deirdre in the future.”

"Over the course of a year with Deirdre’s coaching, Deidre enabled me to shape and implement a set of personal objectives that have grown my leadership skills in ways that surpassed my expectations. She created a challenging but safe coaching environment and asked incredibly insightful questions to pinpoint areas for change that I wanted to action on. As a coach, Deidre is a phenomenal listener and she combined it with her experience to help guide my discovery to what really was important to me, even when at times it seemed unclear to myself. The techniques and approaches that Deidre has shared with me have enabled me to continue to improve long after our coaching programme. These skills and conversations will stay with me forever, as I have found great comfort and success in my personal life too from what I learned from her. Deirdre has a rare gift to bring out the potential in people through coaching and guiding their self reflection, turning it into action and results.”
