I am Liz Kearney, a Professional Business Coach and Trainer. For many years now I have worked with Senior Management, Line Managers, Individuals and Teams delivering programmes on Service Excellence, Communications, Conflict Management, Emotional Intelligence and Resilience & Wellbeing. My Clients include The Public Sector, Corporates, Credit Unions and SME’s.
Having worked in a Senior Management Role in Retail Banking for many years in a ‘normal’ pre Covid-19 environment I experienced first-hand many of the challenges and rewards associated with management and leadership. It was during this time of high pressure and demand that I developed an interest in resilience and wellbeing and my career took a different direction. Initially I worked as an associate trainer with Aware delivering programmes on stress and anxiety. I soon became immersed in the compelling world of psychology, self-development and wellness and completed several certificates and diplomas over the next few years. I am passionate about my work and in helping others achieve their best self, especially in these challenging times. My work focuses on self-awareness, self-development, and self-actualisation keeping empathy, kindness and good manners at the heart of everything I do.
My workshops and coaching are built on all that I have learnt and practised for many years. I aim to ensure that my methodology is tailored to meet the needs of the organisation, group or individual that I am working with. To ensure I get this right I offer a free Training Needs Analysis (now a 30-minute Zoom consultation) and with the findings from this session I combine the appropriate learning tools and modalities and tailor a solution that fits. Like everyone else I have had to adapt my workshops and coaching to our new normal and have developed some new online programmes that have proven to be realistic, highly interactive, and thought provoking with an emphasis on understanding and adaptability.
I am a Qualified Financial Advisor (QFA) an Accredited DiSC Practitioner and a Certified trainer in The Roche Martin Emotional Capital Report – ECR®. I hold a diploma in Psychology, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotional Intelligence and am currently studying mediation with the MII. I am also a member of the Institute of Bankers and the Irish Institute of Training and Development.
