Quotation Marks

Cathy combines her knowledge of organisations and organisational dynamics with experience from the more therapeutic setting of counselling and psychotherapy and emerging discoveries from the neuroscientific community.

Her style is said to be both challenging and pragmatic. She has an ability to quickly cut through issues, getting to the heart of the matter. Clients consistently value the insights she brings and her pragmatic approach.

Cathy has worked with a range of senior executive clients on a variety of leadership challenges, many of which focus on leading change plus building relationships and influencing key stakeholders both internally and externally.

Dan Long

Quotation Marks

Whilst it was only a small audience, I felt so much more relaxed and confident and there was plenty of engagement! All great – thank you for unlocking SOMETHING! I have found your coaching experience so uplifting and thought provoking!

(Director)

Over 28 years Dan has built up an exceptional track record of working with world-class organisations to deliver programmes for national and international clients.


Photo of Dan Long

Dan works as an impact coach for senior managers and executives in both public and private sector organisations. The aim of this type of coaching is to help the coachee find their own level of skill and comfort to achieve their goal: finding ways to tackle challenges and self-generated doubts. The first phase involves introducing the coachee to another way of looking at their ‘challenge’ using drama exercises as a means of connecting with their own strengths. The second phase gives the coachee tools and techniques to help them better understand how to handle this ‘challenge’.

Clients

Dan’s client list includes:

PricewaterhouseCoopers (a current global role covering both in-house facilitation and impact coaching); Dentons; Baker McKenzie; Clyde & Co; Osborne Clarke; Allen & Overy; Simmons & Simmons; HFW; HSF; Wiggin; Clarke Willmott; Bond Dickinson; A&L; Goodbody and Trowers & Hamlins.

Areas of Expertise

  • impact coaching
  • experiential learning

  • assessment and development centres
  • role-play
  • video and live performance
  • bespoke skills practice in small groups

Dan can work with an executive coach and their client, complementing their existing coaching relationship by creating an appropriate simulation of the coachee’s challenge. This is a valuable intervention which has great benefit for the coaching relationship allowing the executive coach to see the client ‘in action’ and share the moment where a behaviour has been revealed, allowing for further exploration of the coaching client’s challenge and their related behaviour.

Qualifications and Memberships

  • Advanced Diploma in Personal and Executive Coaching (Kingstown College, Dublin)
  • MA in Arts in Society (University of North London)
