My top tips on leadership.

I grew up in Kilkenny the oldest of 5 so my leadership development started early!! I studied Law but realised leadership was more my scene and so progressed a career in HR from there. I have worked in a number of industry sectors including Retail, FMCG and Financial Services. Most recently I was the Chief People Officer for AIB. During my time at AIB, I was part of the Leadership team that led the transformational change across the business and returned the bank to profit, delivered the single biggest increase in employee engagement over a 2-year period of any Gallup client based in Europe.

At the tender age of 45 I have decided to put the concept of learnability to the test. I veer between being scared and excited even as I write this! I have always had the urge to be able to sing (outside of my kitchen or shower) but my days in the school choir being urged to mime at the back are still with me. So given that I’m clearly not heading for a future on Ireland’s Got Talent, what has pushed me to challenge myself to leave my cosy comfort zone and learn to do something new that I know I will not excel at? Well I am fascinated by the concept of neuroplasticity. Plasticity is the capacity of the brain to change with learning by way of building new neural pathways. The gift we have as human beings is that every day that we are alive we can build new neural pathways. The more we use the pathways the stronger they become.

We help organisations seize the future with confidence.
