What do our Padraig clients have to say?

This community-driven executive worked with Padraig under the previous CEO before diving deeper with us when she assumed the reins. Her testimonial is in the video below.

Sara Stasiuk

Chief Executive Officer, The Forks North Portage Partnership

This innovative leader first hired Padraig to realign municipal leadership culture and then reengaged us to develop leadership training programs while also coaching leaders one-to-one.

General Manager, Human Resources (then), City of Medicine Hat

This dynamic founder of the hugely successful brewery, Little Brown Jug,  shares in the video below, his experience working with Padraig himself and for his staff.

Kevin Selch

Founder and President, Little Brown Jug Brewing Company

“Working with Patrick and his team has been such a  positive, transformational experience for our organization.

The insights provided into our leadership culture and team dynamics, the flexibility to adapt deliveries to meet emerging needs as we go through the process and the commitment to results are all outstanding.

I highly recommend this company!”

Merete Heggelund

Chief Administrative Officer, City of Medicine Hat

“Coaching with Padraig provided me with the tools to challenge not only myself but my staff as well in the development and growth of our portfolio.

I also gained greater insight into not only my own strengths but those of my team and was able to develop strategy to harness these to their maximal impact.”

Stacy Greening

Chief Zone Officer, Alberta Health Services

“Working with Padraig raised my awareness about my strengths and weaknesses as a leader and helped me develop strategies for addressing challenges in the workplace and helped me become much more aware of how I was perceived by my direct-reports and others working most closely with me.

I think I am a stronger leader because I have had the chance to ‘think out loud’ and thanks to Patrick’s probing questions, have often arrived at my own conclusions to complex problems.”

Dr. David Mandzuk

Dean of Education, University of Manitoba

“The coaching provided by Padraig was very beneficial to me. The approach used was very collegial with questioning and discussion techniques that drew out the solutions from me. The coaching helped me to organize my thoughts, identify solutions, as well as make and implement action plans. Ultimately, the coaching assisted me to resolve some work issues during a very stressful time in the development of the Museum. I would highly recommend Padraig Coaching and Consulting for executive coaching.

Susanne Robertson

Chief Financial Officer, Canadian Museum for Human Rights

“The Partnership program gave me an opportunity to learn from peers who were experiencing similar challenges. The learning was group-directed which gave us the ability to focus on topics that were the most applicable to our current situations.
Over the course of the year, I learned tips and techniques that have changed how I manage. Working with an executive coach was extremely valuable as our conversations served as guideposts in my journey to lead well. I am grateful I took the opportunity to participate in The Partnership; I am most certainly better at my job after going through this training.”
Kristin Sheffield

Head of Corporate Operations, Little Brown Jug Brewing Company

“As simple as it sounds, the biggest return on my investment is the confidence I gained in myself as a leader and as a coach.

I am able to approach my relationships at work and in my personal life with more self-assurance and have seen first hand the positive impact on these relationships and outcomes.”

Amy Cadieux

IG Wealth Management

I knew I was in good hands with any of Padraig’s professional coaches, but I fervently believe that we hit the jackpot having had worked with James (Jim) Simms on this engagement.

Jim’s top-notch skills in leading conversations within a flexible framework with an eye on building relationships and achieving results (the “so what?”) was precisely what we needed.

Thank you.
