Meet Diarmid McBride

Meet Diarmid McBride

Having most recently been EMEA Head of HR for a Japanese Multinational, I was in the process of setting up my bespoke HR and coaching business. I wanted to become a coach because I had ‘coached’ in business for a number of years (or I thought I had!) and I wanted to add the structure and theory to what I had done previously. I did a lot of research and read reviews before deciding on Full Circle. It felt like a great fit for me.

In the beginning the most challenging thing for me was shaking myself out of how I had ‘coached’ previously and ensuring that I wasn’t being directive. On the course the little ‘nuggets’ I picked up from Gillian’s experience were really useful. The interactive approach and the diverse nature of the group worked really well. 

On completing the training I am now offering coaching as an important aspect of my business offering. Getting stuck in and seeing the impact of coaching on clients is brilliant. 

For anyone considering becoming a coach trainee my advice would be – do it! You’ll learn so much about yourself in a very safe environment. What you learn and practice will, I believe, remain with you for life.

Nicki Greenings' Full Circle Story

I chose Full Circle for their credibility and for their strong female leadership team.  They respected my journey, they gave me space to figure things out for myself and they welcomed me an affection and non-judgmental style that I will always hold dear.
