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

Interview skills and career coaching online today. It’s amazing what you can do online and how people are adjusting. It’s also really interesting that companies in some sectors are hiring but if you don’t know how to put your best foot forward then you are loosing out on an opportunity. Food for thought... take control, own it and take control - a few tools, self discovery and it’s amazing what you can achieve #careercoach #selfdiscovery #coaching

Career coaching / training was on the agenda today, usually I am in their offices overlooking Molly Malone but today I delivered online. I adapted the course and OMG I even surprised myself, I was able to get in the role plays, the activities, gain the same rapport etc. I couldn’t be more happy and to top it off the feedback was amazing!! Just goes to show what we can achieve when we turn off the self doubt button, embrace the new normal and give it a try!! #careercoaching #interviewtips #interview #getthejobdone

I remember someone telling me once that I shouldn’t make any major decisions for 1 year after my fiancée passed away. It’s strange that I’m remembering this now but in a way we are grieving our lives and adjusting to our new normals so while it’s an amazing time for reflection, back to basics etc maybe don’t make any major life changing decisions without some thought. My 2 cent for the day.... Stay safe, stay strong #stayathome #coaching
