Experience in one to one coaching

Fiona McKeever is an experienced Executive Coach and solicitor, including 12 years (2007-2018) as a partner in Arthur Cox. She retired from legal practice in 2018 to focus on coaching.
Of particular interest to Principals and Deputies is her wealth of expertise and interest in working with newly appointed managers or leaders, and with individuals assigned new responsibilities or portfolios. Transition from peer to manager/leader can be a challenging time and existing relationships often require re-evaluation. A new leader may inherit a team and culture which no longer works or is appropriate. Conflict and the need for difficult conversations may arise. These career transition challenges are often accompanied by a dip in individual confidence and Fiona enjoys working with her clients to explore and re-discover their confidence.
Fiona has worked with many leaders (CEOs, MDs and Partners) during the challenging times of Covid-19. Through coaching Fiona has supported them to have more impact with key stakeholders, optimising the skills and talents of the team around them, confidently having difficult conversations, motivating and communicating with teams, and developing personal resilience.
Her coaching philosophy is one that respects the knowledge, skills and experience that have already brought her clients success. Every client has a different story and she believes all this prior learning and experience should be accessed through the coaching process.

Fiona’s clients appreciate the non-judgmental environment within which they can safely express their goals, objectives, thoughts and feelings which may otherwise remain unspoken. They say that coaching has given them the space to untangle their thoughts and recognise unhelpful assumptions or beliefs that may have held them back. This process has, in turn, created energy and agency to focus on solutions and action.
