With access to whatever scope of governance documents you choose to make available, and interviews with your board chair and CEO, Shelagh will tailor her coaching or training to meet the needs of the individual, your board and organization.

Coaching for those already in the career

Whether initiated by an individual, or on an employer’s recommendation, Shelagh can provide meaningful coaching to help support success in the career. Whether you’re seeking resolution to a single need, a short-term boost or ongoing coaching, let Shelagh know.
