Ann Greene Principal Coach & Consultant
As SupportCoach’s principal, I will partner you through your organizational or career transformation journey.
I am an executive coach with 15+ years of transformation expertise at leadership level to innovate on strategy and navigate both career and organizational transformation with sustainable success. I specialize in building meaning and fulfilment for progress. My purpose is to unravel the real challenges for your career or your business and together, design a roadmap for success with a realistic timeframe for achievement.
My purpose as your executive coach is to enable you to realise your true potential and exceed organizational targets. Together, we will outline the results you aspire to and convert these, with a clear vision, to an action plan for success that is grounded in your personal values. We’ll start with your “Why”* to really understand why this is so important for you. (*”Start with Why”, Simon Sinek).
I have 1000+ coaching hours, have designed and delivered national university courses, facilitated keynote messages at 100+ events with global corporates, and have supported many people to radically transform their careers.
Some clients include: Trinity College Dublin, The Law Society of Ireland, Zurich Group, Roche Pharma, PayPal, Rehab Group, Government and Entrepreneurship agencies, National Governing Bodies (NGBs), Fortune 500 global management consultancies and many Small/Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
Some insights to my background
Transformation has been a theme throughout my career: transforming departments, restructuring organizations and supporting clients to reshape their business or career. I have enjoyed the privilege of working with incredible, smart people in global brands like Microsoft, Autodesk and McAfee, and held leadership roles in SME organizations. Key roles have included project managing business start-ups, leading and developing global teams, recruiting principle stakeholders, amalgamating teams following acquisition and even closing businesses.
My leadership roles have been on both sides of the desk: as the client and the vendor, and I have led virtual teams in multicultural environments. The journey has been challenging, sometimes lonely and always rewarding. Many professional relationships built through my career are now strong friendships. Collaboration has been the key to success, supported by continuous learning. COVID lockdowns allowed me to achieve a Master’s degree in Leadership & Strategy, blending academic learning with business acumen to resolve client challenges.
Personally, I have overcome critical impacts from 3 potentially life altering accidents and come close to career burnout. I have been employed, re-deployed, unemployed and self-employed. These experiences, combined with practical learnings from philosophy and education, have developed grit, taught me the value of wellbeing, family and health, and bring empathy to client challenges. Now, some of life’s personal pleasures include spending time with family, friends and my dog, being close to the ocean, exercise, travel, and a passion for singing and music.
