Enabling clarity and performance through self-awareness

As an Executive Coach I help clients find clarity and improve performance.

My ideal clients are individuals or groups who wish to work more effectively in teams and develop leadership potential. To accomplish this I help clients build their emotional self-awareness so they can better understand their reactions and responses to the triggers that drive their behaviour.

Building this self-awareness allows clients a choice of response rather than falling victim to a reaction.

If you wish to perform at your best in an executive capacity, as a leader, or team member, you need to be clear about your motivations, clear about your drivers, and clear about the outcomes you want to achieve.

Using the tools of Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Self-Awareness through Emotional Intelligence, and Mindful Leadership practice, I can help you better understand your own motivations, bring productivity improvements, and improve work relationship dynamics.




Coaching/Mentoring Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and Productivity

People who wish to perform at their best in an Executive capacity need to be clear about their goals, clear about their passion, and clear about the outcomes they want to achieve.

Mick Lavin can help you clarify these objectives by enabling you to discover what drives you and how you can best direct your energies to produce the best results.

Using the tools of Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Self-Awareness through Emotional Intelligence, and Mindful Leadership practice, Mick can help you better understand your own motivations, bring productivity improvements, and improve work relationship dynamics.




Training Self-awareness through Emotional Intelligence

Understanding your emotional state and how this affects your behaviour along with the emotional states of those around you, can help you develop and become an effective leader, team member, and serve yourself better in many personal and professional situations.

The problem is that many of us don't understand or recognise our own emotional states. We understand happiness, sadness, joy, and anger but do you know that 70,000 thoughts will enter and leave your mind today and each will affect you to some degree emotionally? These fleeting thoughts cause emotional, physiological, and behavioural changes without us consciously recognising it. When this happens we become primed to respond to stimuli in a way that may not serve us or be within character for us.

Learning to recognise these Primers and Emotional States can help us become better Leaders, better Team Players, and better Decision Makers.

Making good and rational decisions is good for business but what happens when our emotions affect our affect our judgement. How we feel in the moment affects the decisions we make. If we are happy we may give concessions during negotiations, sadness may mean we lose interest and somehow sabotage negotiations; anger may lead to stubborn behaviour where we won’t concede ground; fear may mean we put off decisions; and shock may make us stop taking risks, even measured risks.
