See what participants of our inaugural Coaching Skills for Solicitors and Practice Managers programme had to say about their experience of the programme.

“Participating in the Coaching skills for managers programme has been very beneficial to me in several ways: not only did it enable me to develop a network of like-minded legal professionals but it also helped me to refresh my coaching skills (used in a previous professional corporate career) and strengthen the deep sense of coaching culture within my firm. The techniques reviewed during the coaching programme and the coaching practice exercises have been essential to making this programme a success. I would recommend it to anyone who is managing teams and/or has a keen interest in acquiring and/or developing their coaching skills.”
Sandrine Greene, Director of Operations, Tracey Solicitors, Dublin

‘The Coaching Skills for Managers course has allowed me to better understand myself and others. It has given me the tools to develop new ways to respond to challenging situations and helped me to build more productive working relationships with my colleagues.’
Michael Moore, Director, Legal Services, KPMG Ireland
