Dragonfly Coaching & Career Services was established to support the development of female talent in business. We understand that women experience the workplace in a very different way and face very unique and specific challenges.
Our practice is focused on helping women to develop fulfilling careers, supported by great organisations that actively foster diversity of talent, work-life integration and individual career development. We do this by providing leadership and executive coaching on a one to one and group basis for women at all stages of their careers.
Wide Ranging Programme Offering
From Female Leadership Development Programmes, Parental Support Programmes to Re-engaging with your Career Programmes, we understand that great talent requires great supports. Our unique approach enables women and their organisations to develop leading edge skills, tools and capabilities to capitalise on their potential and build sustainable careers and businesses throughout every stage of their working lives.

The support and insight we got from our 3 Day sprint has been very valuable. As Team Leader, I have seen strong developments within the group, people stepping up and getting involved and working hard to achieve the end result… thanks to Orla and the Sprint sessions we now have the tools to drive this project forward to completion. And to also take away key learnings that will enable us to continue working in similar ways in the future
Orla delivered the Team Sprint in a very professional manner, engaging and allowing for understanding. Her style and mannerisms were excellent. I would highly recommend Orla to facilitate any group of individuals.

As a Team Coach & Facilitator, Orla was very patient with us and moved us swiftly along. She didn't let anyone take over and let us all have our points listened to. A very worthwhile session with an excellent facilitator who knew what to do and at what time, and definitely didn't let anything fluster her. Thank you Orla.
Team Facilitation Engagement
I began my Coaching Plan last year with Orla, having been recently promoted to Director Level within my organisation. I was finding the step up to director level difficult and was unsure of my own leadership capabilities and style and felt my confidence was really starting to suffer. Orla’s coaching gave me the time and space for me to reflect on what I wanted to achieve and get in touch with myself again and I saw my self-belief and confidence grow, it also allowed me become the leader I wanted to be for me and for my team.

My experience with Dragonfly Coaching has been a positive journey of discovery. Orla helped me to build back my confidence in myself and abilities, through analysing my strengths and capabilities both personal and professionally. This put me on a path to return to college. I have graduated with 1st class Honours and received a Gold in Green Belt in Lean. I believe this was achieved through Orla’s coaching & support in helping me choose the correct course for me. I’m now employed in a new role, in a new sector and have found my passion
I recently had a series of coaching sessions with Orla at Dragonfly Coaching. I had decided to change careers after many years both at home and self-employed. At the time, I really felt that I didn’t have much relevant work experience or qualifications. However, through my coaching plan - Orla totally changed my mindset and helped me to discover the value that I could offer an employer, this gave me confidence to apply for a much wider and more interesting range of jobs than I would have considered. Orla convinced me to take my time and that only a job that I was truly enthusiastic about was worth taking. I subsequently began a Skillnet Techstart Programme aimed at getting women back into the Tech workforce and am now working as a Tech Manager… and absolutely loving it. I couldn’t recommend Orla highly enough.
