We have learned that effective leadership drives business performance. A genuine and ethically motivated culture of ongoing development means that whenever and whoever we help feels the benefit of working with a team that cares about people and the impact they have on any organisation. As a result we have gained an enviable reputation in helping leaders ‘make the difference’ for themselves, their organisation and customers.

Louise Healy has been designing and delivering leadership development programs to individual leaders and groups for over 14 years. Her contribution to CoachStation is exceptional knowledge of contemporary leadership development practice and a real understanding of what works effectively. Louise’s interest in the human brain and how people learn and change ensures the programs she designs and delivers have practicality and sustainability at their core. Her experience has uncovered that most change initiatives are not successful because they fail to address underlying mindsets that drive behaviour. This is expressed in the view that knowing your mind is the first step in changing your mind.
Prior to working in the leadership development field Louise led teams in convention management, vocational and educational training and the community sector. Louise has postgraduate qualifications in psychology. Her passion in leadership is helping people to realise they are capable of adapting to any situation by knowing themselves and being themselves.
Being a partner in CoachStation provides me with an opportunity to make a real difference in the way people lead their teams, connect with others and achieve tangible results.
