Aidan is a strengths focused leadership coach who works with leaders and their teams on their most pressing issues to get lasting positive results.
You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him discover it in himself.
Aidan had a first career in International Human Resources working for 22 years with international companies. Aidan has held senior leadership positions himself, holding HRD EMEA positions for both Motorola and Sony. This career gave Aidan deep experience in leading and managing transformational change in organisations as well as conflict resolution and employee relations. Always interested in personal development, and having benefited from great leadership training himself, Aidan retrained to become an Executive Coach in 2006, and has since been working successfully with 100’s of senior leaders and their teams across the globe for the benefit of themselves, their people and the customers they serve.
Aware of the criticality of good leadership in organisations, and inspired by his experiences of great personal development, Aidan chose to retrain as an Executive Coach himself so that he could enable leaders to deal with their most challenging issues by utilising their strengths, mitigating their weaknesses and growing their knowledge of people, teams and powerful communication. Aidan is inspired by coaching leaders to deeper understanding of themselves, so that they can make their strengths productive and lead others in an inspiring and effective way, a way that is authentically and uniquely their own. He is also deeply aware that when you successfully grow positive leadership in a senior leader, this has a great ripple effect, positively affecting the lives of many people, not just the coachee. For Aidan, coaching is his vocation, not his job.
