I'm Paddy Woods - The IT Coach
I coach and mentor IT professionals and entrepreneurs by assisting with change.
I work with individuals, experienced managers, and leaders to change their technique, outlook and communication style to improve productivity.
I chose to coach and mentor primarily in this sector because I have worked with IT professionals and entrepreneurs for over 30 years.
I have found that IT people in particular find it difficult to adapt their working and communication styles when they take on managerial or leadership roles.
It becomes a definite barrier to career progression.
These skills can be developed with work and my job is to assist you and nurture these skills within you.
I often hear IT people express fear about moving to the next level in their careers or taking on challenging roles, including entrepreneurial people.
They can feel isolated and may lack confidence.
They are sometimes concerned about change and unsure of their ability to do required work.
Having a coach shouldn’t be viewed as a luxury or a self indulgence. Modern managers, leaders and entrepreneurs view coaching as an essential requirement for success.
With some simple tools I can help you:
Identify your potential
Anticipate problems and learn tried and tested
techniques to deal with them
Clarify career, business and personal goals and implement
Start showcasing your skills in practice
I can help you:
Unlock common problems
Gain valuable new perspectives
Create positive change
“Paddy has been a fantastic mentor and sounding board for me from the start of my journey. Paddy has gone above and beyond for me, from sending me important articles and information to such lengths of proofreading application documents.
He has been instrumental in my development as a startup founder in terms of my strategic direction, customer discovery, target market, researching, networking and forecast modelling.
Paddy’s knowledge and honest opinion is something I admire most and has kept me on track when my focus swayed. I wouldn’t have gotten onto the Enterprise Ireland accelerator programme without his coaching and mentoring.”
