My Story

About Me

Liz Kearney

My early career started out in the world of banking. This path was dictated more by necessity than by desire and after several career moves within the banking industry I finally stepped down from a Senior Management Position in 2010 and launched L K Learning Solutions, a training and coaching business.

It was only when I got a chance to plan my dream career that I fully realised the impact pressure and stress can have on the body. So initially I concentrated on Psychology, CBT, Emotional Intelligence and Conflict Management. In 2013 I developed my first wellbeing programme The Resilience and Wellbeing Springboard which is currently being delivered nationwide.

Having seen the negative impact a tough target driven sales environment can create, I am committed to ensuring I keep the client’s needs at the heart of what I do. Before I commence working with an individual, a team or an organisation I set out first to understand the behavioural learning objectives. I then explore the perceived barriers to achieving these objectives and aim to capture a specific picture of what success might look like. When all becomes clear I work with my client(s) to design effective solutions combining the appropriate learning tools and modalities that will meet their specific goals and expectations. I then make a point of staying in the background till the goals and desired results become a reality.

My work today focuses on individual, team and leadership development. Having worked as a certified practitioner in DiSC® psychometrics for over 25 years I became an Authorised Partner in Wiley Everything DiSC® in 2019. I firmly believe DiSC® is one of the most powerful self-development tools out there with a focus on self-awareness, accountability and ownership and now with their recently launched online Catalyst™ platform I know it is going to be around for many years to come.

To expand my training and coaching offerings to Leaders / Managers, in 2017 I became an accredited practitioner in The Roche Martin ECR™ Emotional Capitalist Report. This has proven very successful and over the last few years I have seen remarkable transformations with this training. When I look back on my managerial days I often think how different things might have been if I had had this knowledge and insight back then.

I am great believer that everybody has the potential to learn and grow and the biggest room in the world in the room for improvement. I ensure my workshops, both virtual and classroom are packed with interactive and thought provoking modules, hands on exercises and fun.

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 about to complete a certificate in mediation with the MII. I am also a member of the Institute of Bankers and the Irish Institute of Training and Development.

Let’s work together

I am passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge and guiding others towards reaching their goals. Everyone deserves a chance to find their success in this very frantic and tumultuous world
