Meet Lisa

Lisa is a professional Executive Coach and trainer who works with professionals, executives and business owners to build their leadership skills, confidence and resilience so that they will achieve success without burning out.

Having first qualified as a general nurse and subsequently as a midwife, Lisa has worked in a diverse range of clinical settings including Beaumont Hospital Dublin, Calcutta Rescue, King Edward VII Hospital, the Royal Marsden Clinic, and GP practices in Dublin. A move to the administrative side of healthcare included roles in the Blackrock Clinic, Lowell House, and the Irish Practice Nurses Association where she managed a successful application for charitable tax exemption, drafted governance policies for Board to approve, mentored rotating Board Members in their new roles and responsibilities, and coordinated clinical awards and bursaries. She built a successful Virtual Assistance business before going on to qualify as a Business, Executive and Personal Coach, and later completing Train the Trainer.

Lisa’s coaching practice is underpinned by her nursing background and knowledge of how physical and mental health is woven into every aspect of our personal and working lives. She helps her clients recognise and manage stress, ground themselves and their leadership practices in their core values, and design and implement meaningful changes that are embedded so that they will last long after the coaching process has ended. She works with her clients to develop their personal resilience using their own physiology, research-based coaching techniques and evidence from studies in neuroscience. She uses various coaching models, including Micro-Resilience (proven, research-based tools and rejuvenating behaviours that take seconds to implement and lead to immediate results), Co-Active Coaching, the Five Levels of Leadership, Conversational Intelligence, and others. Her approach throughout her past nursing career and in her coaching practice now is one of ‘unconditional positive regard’ for her clients (ref: Carl Rogers).

Lisa is on several coaching panels in private, semi-state and cross-border bodies in Ireland.  In September 2020 Aslan Coaching achieved accredited CPD Status with the CPD Standards Office (CPDSO). To achieve this accreditation the company had undergone a rigorous assessment process that focuses on the development and delivery of our training including our educational authority, how we collect and utilise our delegate feedback and ensure our content is kept up to date. Now that we have achieved this accreditation and status as an accredited CPD Provider (CPDSO No: 50206), we are committed to working hard to maintain, and exceed, the excellent standard we have already set.  Lisa’s R.E.A.L. Leadership 4 week online programme is now accredited for 7 CPD points.

Lisa gives talks and workshops on resilience to community and patient groups, business teams, at seminars and networking meetings. She co-facilitates peer group coaching supervision sessions with coach colleagues, is currently Vice-President of the BNI Rossmore Chapter and is also Orientation Director Consultant for the BNI North East and Dublin region.  She is a Certified Just Culture Champion. She has contributed to nursing and medical journals, websites and blogs, writing about interventions that enhance health literacy. Her core values are dignity throughout life, non-judgement and compassion.
