Katriona O’Connor

Katriona was warm, understanding and had great insight into why I was feeling the way I was. I felt so comfortable from the get-go we built a strong level of trust, and that has let me open up in ways I previously haven’t wanted to

Overview

With a blend of Executive Coaching (ICF) combined with Therapeutic training, I offer a fully bespoke approach to improving individual and team performance, tailored to the specific needs of the individual and organisation.

I am a Hogan Psychometric Assessment practitioner, a useful framework for looking at an individual’s strengths and areas for development.

I also work with private equity firms on due diligence by assessing Leadership Teams prior to private investment.

Strengths analysis and coaching

  • Raise awareness around key motivators and values
  • Career assessment and destination
  • One-off and ongoing coaching

Assessment and selection for employers

  • Using science-based /psychometric tools to assess the performance and potential of senior leaders
  • In-depth interview and feedback
  • Identify high potential and talent

Leadership capability due diligence

  • Assess the capability of the leadership team with a view to scalability
  • Recommendations on how to alleviate the leadership capability barriers to growth
  • Gain clarity around people, roles and organisational structure

As a qualified psychometric practitioner and coach, I work with individuals and teams, to identify blind spots or behaviour that may undermine performance, impact, and productivity. This approach can be flexed according to needs, e.g., leadership team assessment and feedback, individual coaching, or a blend of both.

Drawing from my lived experience of working in a broad range of companies, I understand the challenge of building a corporate career and attaining a happy home life and have extensive experience of career counselling around inflection points, workplace disruption and managing/preventing burnout.

Testimonial for Katriona O'Connor

I have never felt so safe with someone at my most vulnerable time

I first started working with Katriona 18 months ago, at that time I had experienced 2 severe breakdowns, which were induced by an awful work-related grievance and I was prescribed medication to help manage the depression, anxiety and ADHD.

My mental health is quite complex as I have been diagnosed with ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia and at that time was under investigation for epilepsy.

In the course of working with Katriona, I realised that she was an expert therapist, able to understand and explain the paths of my own thought processes.

Katriona helped me reach my goals, which were to stay in employment and to titrate off medication.

In my sessions, we planned what I could do to help cope and strategies that I could do. I learnt a lot about my mental health and how to cope and live a healthier lifestyle.

Katriona is definitely worth her weight in gold, her skill set is vast and she is extremely competent and knowledgeable.

I have never felt so safe with someone at my most vulnerable time.

Katriona’s therapy support and insight were truly life-altering

Katriona and I worked together for over three months, during which time Katriona’s support and insight were truly life-altering.

Katriona is a professional in every sense, with super knowledge and experience. But above all, it is her kindness that shines through and her ability to put you at ease at all times.

I’m so thankful that I was able to work with Katriona and I know that I can turn to her again in the future if I need to. If you are looking for help, I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
