Kieran is an experienced team coach, executive coach, supervisor and consultant. His primary interest lies in how organisations can unlock the untapped resources within individuals, teams and groups, enabling total organisational systems to change more purposefully over time.
Kieran’s coaching and consulting work with organisations draws heavily on the integration of both halves of his working career to date. Until 2002 Kieran held various senior finance and corporate roles for multinationals in Europe and Asia Pacific, including a period as Finance Director, Asia Pacific Shared Financial Services for Sun Microsystems. His tenure with Sun also included five years as a project manager helping to establish four shared service centres globally, which required a complete systems redesign and change management program across multiple cultures to support almost US$16 billion in annual revenue. As well as things were going at one level, it was also time for a change, some personal discovery and a new challenge in the form of returning to full-time study in the field of psychotherapy, specialising in groups and teams.
Since that move in 2003, Kieran has coached hundreds of senior leaders across multiple organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Kieran is particularly passionate about working with groups and teams. He brings a deep understanding of how individuals, teams and systems connect to every facet of his work, and spends much of his time with senior leadership teams helping them bring organisations with them, increasingly aligning their collective effort with organisational strategy.
Kieran been a faculty member at the Jansen Newman Institute since 2005 where he teaches group and team dynamics. He is on the faculty at Duke CE and has consulted with the Grubb institute out of the UK. Within Australia, Kieran has presented at conferences since 2009, for both the Australia Psychological Society, and the International Coaching Federation. Kieran has also written articles for magazines and academic journals.
From a charities and community perspective Kieran has supported the Pathways foundation since 2008, and has also been an active supporter of Baby and Beyond since 2007.
Kieran migrated to Australia in 1995, and as well as loving his work, is a proud father, husband and try-hard endurance sportsman and duathlete, enabling him to best honour his head, heart, pocket and soul.
