Who is Coaching by SMK for?

Clients at Coaching by SMK are hugely varied in terms of industry and profession, ranging from senior executives in multinational companies, to sole-traders, such as plumbers, florists and artists; and entrepreneurs in fields ranging from fashion, tech to medical. Typically, Sinead’s clients will identify with one or more of the following issues in their business practice or professional career:

  • Overwhelmed, no direction, plan or focus
  • Lacking clarity of thought
  • Have a willingness to grow but are unsure of the "how"
  • Require a personal sounding board to gain new perspectives
  • Need an accountability partner

Each of Sinead’s clients is aware of the need to maintain a competitive advantage in their individual industry or professional career. We all know that in business you can’t afford to stand still - yesterday’s accomplishments won’t guarantee tomorrow’s success. The process of continual evolution can be overwhelming, which is exactly why engaging an external party, in the form of a business coach, can help lead your business towards lasting success.

What will I gain by working with Coaching by SMK?

Sinead provides clients with focus and clarity, helping them to identify clear business or career goals. Sinead then coaches clients on how to draw on their own skillset and talents to achieve that goal.

Having invested in their business and themselves by working with Sinead, clients have seen tangible results in many areas, such as:

  • Measurable financial growth
  • Clarity on direction, goals, purpose - prioritisation
  • Career progression/ promotion
  • Smoother operations and flow
  • Reduced stress, work life balance

How Does It Work?

I help my clients gain confidence, grow their businesses and achieve whole new levels of success by drawing on my unique blend of business acumen and life experience.

Through a series of tailored one-on-one sessions or bespoke half / full day workshops I coach professionals, business owners and entrepreneurs to clarity, developing confidence, balance through time-management and communication skills etc.   I provide tools, resources and personalised strategies to drive my clients’ to career, business and financial growth.

In much the same way as a sports coach brings out the best in an athlete, I will ensure that you are playing to your strength 

Stay on track with your goals

What is a Business Coach? A Business Coach is someone who will assist the owner, or perhaps manager of a business to staying on track to meet their business and personal goals. If, for example, they’ve grown too big too fast and need to get back on the right track or they need a new direction and boost to improve profits, a Business Coach will be there to guide them into place. One thing a business coach can do is help you Refresh and Refocus! It might be that hiring a Business Coach leads to a freshening up of processes or perhaps you’re now able to identify that you’ve got everything exactly where it needs to be. Either way, it’s good to go over your strategy every now and then. Even just the process of explaining your business to an outsider and justifying why you do what you do the way you do can help give you a fresh take on things and refocus your goals and objectives.

I get such a kick out of helping people re focus on the topic of career, like what do they want to achieve, where do they want to work, how does that balance with other elements of life etc Then when all of that is said and done, you get the interview the. It’s time for interview skills. If you think you can wing it - you are WRONG!! So yesterday was interview skills, all the tools, tips and tricks to nail the job!!! #interviewsills #careerchange #careercoaching #nailthatjob #success #personalgrowth
