Carol McGowan on all things Leadership to Coaching

Carol the ‘Pracademic’ Coach

In this modern landscape, there is much focus on leaders, the way I see it is a great deal of real work gets done at the coal face. I believe I have earned my stripes practically and academically hence I call myself a ‘pracademic’ coach in that I am a practitioner first but I support what I do with sound research. It informs my practice but does not rule my practice.

My passion is the psychology of people in the workplace and because I have the two strands of experience and expertise I believe I am in a good place to help people navigate their careers and workplace experiences that they not only benefit professionally but also personally. I accept the challenges I have faced because they enable me to connect and understand others and then be able to determine strategies that can make the impossible possible.
