Caroline H

Global Executive, Leadership Development and Burnout specialist, International Speaker
Functions: Human Resources

Former Global Head of Leadership Development with CRH and Head of Change with the Central Bank of Ireland.  Caroline brings her unique insight of senior female leadership, and leading hybrid teams in complex multinational organisations into her executive coaching practice.

Caroline is an ICF accredited coach, certified in various 360 tools, and Energy Leadership Index (helps leaders identify how they show up under stress). A highly experienced global executive who has led teams across multiple time zones in delivering large scale transformation in global leadership development, Inclusion and Diversity. Specific expertise in curating well-chosen experiences and professional development to enable talent to progress within an organisation.

As Chief Learning Architect she partnered with global thought leaders such as Centre for Creative Leadership, Duke CE, McKinsey Institute to develop a curriculum of development interventions for leaders at all levels; and partnered with YSC on executive assessment and development planning for Hi-po for C Suite and C suite minus one roles.

Recovering from severe burnout in 2019, Caroline turned her illness into a transformational life event. She went from years of “doing a deal a day” to block out physical pain and convince herself to sustain her own performance, lead teams and deliver highly effective solutions, to being forced to step back completely.

During that time she realised that her drive and passion for her work were partly responsible for her burnout and in her 12 month recuperation, she discovered the importance of physical, emotional and mental wellbeing as ultimately giving her tools to increase her bandwidth and change her life.

Having studied with some of the greats – Deepak Chopra, Brené Brown, Tony Robbins, Michael Neill and others, she brings razor-sharp strategic insights and empathy to coaching relationships with executives and development of corporate strategy for leadership development and wellbeing.
