EyeJBee Ltd - Case Studies & Testimonials

I worked with Irene over a number of months to support my transition from an Operations role to General Manager where I have full strategic accountability for the business. During this period I needed to challenge my thought processes and develop my thinking towards the longer term. Irene was invaluable in helping me achieve this change by being both challenging and supportive when necessary. In our very first session we agreed the style of feedback that would be most beneficial for me as an individual and this certainly helped make the sessions very productive and focused.
I would certainly recommend Irene as an executive coach as her flexible and focused approached helped me consider the changes I needed to make.

Andy Cresswell - Group General Manager Food Retail - Midcounties Co-operative

I contracted Irene to supervise a team of three coaches undertaking a major organisational coaching project to support the leadership development programme for senior managers of a government research organisation. I chose her because of her abilities as a coach, supervisor and trainer, backed up by professional qualifications.

Irene's knowledge and experience have been invaluable. She provided useful insights as I designed the project and defined the supervision aspect. She went on to organise and deliver supervision in a professional yet friendly manner. Irene's strengths include an ability to take a broad view of a case study, ensuring that the needs of all stakeholders are considered. Her deep understanding of coaching and related disciplines enables her to ask challenging and insightful questions, leaving the coaches better equipped to work effectively.

Concern for professional quality is tempered with good humour leading to relaxed, trusting relationships with the coaching team. Her commitment to ideals is balanced by a pragmatic attitude to achieving good outcomes for coach, coachee and sponsoring organisation. Irene's work has made a significant contribution to the wellbeing of the coaching team, the quality of our work and the benefits that our clients have experienced.

Irene has been my supervisor for my professional coaching practice for the last 6 months. I have always found her to be very professional in her approach but accessible at the same time. I value her insight and input which always proves invaluable to me in improving my performance and standards as a professional coach. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a first rate coach supervisor.
