Niall Heenan has worked with communities, organisations and individuals since the mid 90’s in the area of personal and local development. My personal and educational background is in rural development and this work led me into the area of personal development and effectiveness. In this arena I have worked in group development, facilitation and training. I am trained in Career and Business coaching with Coaching Development (UK) and find that using a coaching approach to individual or group situations can result in more effective and real change.
I am also trained in the use of Points of You-The Coaching Game
As well as private coaching clients, I have worked with people who are unemployed who wished to look at self development and progression.
I currently deliver a 10 week Career and Personal Change Programme on behalf of SECAD in Cork called ‘Time to Change’
I also work with emerging tourism entrepreneurs in Co Galway as Rural Tourism Animator with Galway Rural Development
I am trained in the use of the DiSC Personality Profile and use this in exploring our communication styles and perception of others.
I have also provided training in the area of communication skills, presentation skills and interview preparation.
I am regularly asked to facilitate annual review meetings and planning meetings and one organisational client refers to me as their ‘critical friend’
