Hi, I’m Margaret and I’m The Pivot Coach!

I’m an accredited Career & Leadership development Coach with the International Coach Federation (ICF) and I am passionate about the positive changes coaching can bring about for people at all levels of their career, from those plotting their career path, to those re-entering the workplace after time out to top executives. Changes my clients are looking to achieve include career advancement, improved work life balance, improved working conditions and overcoming obstacles.

What’s in the name? Why the pivot coach?

Well personally and professionally, I have experienced a few pivots in my own life, and I have first-hand experience of being in a job that wasn’t floating my boat. I have used education to make progress and change my career focus, I have opted for redundancy twice voluntarily, I have moved country and returned to Ireland with young children, gone back to the workforce following a career break, I have explored working flexibly and now I am starting my own business.

I understand how exciting some of these pivots can be, but I also get how terrifying and paralysing they can be also. Your brain might be telling you all the factual, logical considerations but there can still be “stuff” holding you back. Doubt, lack of confidence, and that little (or perhaps not so little) voice saying “it’s too hard, don’t rock the boat, better the devil you know” etc etc. I’ve been there, done that, made the pivots and that is why I am passionate about doing the work I do. I like to provide support to people who are going through big or small career changes, so that they can make the right decisions with confidence, at a particular moment in time. If you are worried about taking your next step, then reach out to thepivotcoach.ie and I will lend you the support, expertise and advice you need to stride forward in confidence.

What’s different about my approach?

I support busy and overburdened professionals to take a pause and then start putting themselves and their needs and desires first, upfront and centre!

I do this by providing expert professional coaching in a 3 step process of Purpose, Passion & Pivot.

Purpose – Becoming clear about who you really are and what you really want. Exploring strengths, your vision & values – Gaining personal insights & greater self-awareness.

Passion – reconnecting to what energises and motivates you to generate options and to intentionally choose a path forward.

Pivot – Generating commitment, action and accountability. This phase prepares you to move forward confidently.

Coaching might be for you if you…

  • Are looking for a change for the better
  • Would like to achieve a better work/life balance
  • Are looking for a change but don’t know where to begin?
  • Never have the time to think about what or where you are going with your career?
  • Keep putting things off? Kicking the can further down the road?
  • Find yourself saying yes to others when you should be saying no? Is this going to help you achieve what you want?
  • You know that you can do better, be better, know there is more you can give, that you deserve more?

The reward for me is when my client goes from “I don’t know where to begin” to “I can’t wait to get started.” I love helping my clients find their energy around their personal passion in their lives.
