Developing leaders fast, well, safely, with candour, wisdom and humour.

Top Team Development

We have a sustained success rate of our clients achieving over 88% of their target when we support them at individual or leadership team levels. Most research suggests the industry average is below 50%.

CEO Coaching

The most senior leader in the organisation has a disproportionate level of impact on the business and the people within it. Who helps that person to pause, reflect, make conscious decisions and steer the organisation towards its outcomes also has an unusual level of impact!

We help leaders evolve and transform

Our role is to partner with leadership teams and individual leaders as they grapple with elevated levels of complexity and change.

We have a sustained success rate of our clients achieving over 88% of their targets when we support them at individual or leadership team levels. In our work, we regularly measure useful business metrics before and after our work to illustrate the impacts realised.

Often we use graphically based instruments such as The Leadership Circle suite of tools with pre and post measurements, the before and after shots.

I found him to be the most effective and insightful coach that I have worked with. That’s significant, as I have worked with many. His style creates a safe space for sharing deep insights and his thoughtful questioning and follow up notes are catalysts for increased awareness and often jolted me into new and more effective ways of thinking.

I believe the success of this event was influenced by the host, Padraig O’Sullivan. Pod is a refreshing enigma in the corporate world: a brilliantly complex mind coupled with warm, open, humble and enthusiastic curiosity. A paragon for these times.
Dr Jason Fox
Padraig is the coach whom any senior executive would benefit from. As a world-class coach, he supports his clients by asking the perfect questions to allow the best answers to reveal themselves. He was the ideal coach to guide me through a significant professional and cultural transition
Martin Grossman
GM ANZ, Actelion Pharmaceuticals
Having worked with Padraig for 2 years, he has provided invaluable support and guidance. Padraig has never told me what to do, but instead offers a different perspective. He asks the hard questions and helps reframe each situation to uncover the real opportunity for knowledge, organisational development, learning and self-improvement.

He is a true thought leader. I always come away from our time together feeling inspired
Simon Youngs
Global Head of Learning, Coats
Padraig was an outstanding executive coach for me, dare I say, a successful leader but contemplating my own set of key questions & development challenges. We connected easily & focused on the outcomes I was after. He is an incredible listener, highly insightful, honest & experienced in his counsel & coaching. The program was more helpful & defining than I'd imagined.
Pete Everingham
Former Managing Director, Seek Education
Padraig understands leadership and understands how people can come together to collectively succeed in the work environment. His powerful insights and logical advice has been of immense benefit to me and the teams I work with.
Jonathan Moller
Head Of Medical Affairs USA, Abbvie
Padraig has been brilliant in working with several members of our Executive team He is focussed on providing a coaching experience that delivers commercial outcomes which is a real strength. I have experienced coaches in the past that are great for the individual concerned but fail to also deliver company results. He is rather unique.
