This is the next blog in the continuing series of interviews with top-echelon and renowned professionals. In this blog, I interview Internationally-Renowned Speaker, Corporate/Executive Coach, Best-selling Author: Cathy Shaughnessy.
I first met Cathy when she put on a workshop for IT leaders at Microsoft Canada. Everyone was impressed with her knowledge and passion. She followed-up with another workshop for MS Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs)—again a resounding success. This fine work prompted this interview.
Cathy Shaughnessy, Certified Executive Coach and owner of Perspective In Action, has been working with people as they boost their performance in the workplace for almost 25 years.
She has managed and coordinated corporate learning projects and established an outstanding track record of success as a sought after executive coach, speaker, training consultant and learning design specialist.
Certified through Royal Roads University, Cathy works primarily one-on-one with senior executives as they get traction on their own performance as leaders. She has worked as a thinking partner, performance strategist and action catalyst with executives at the Ministry of the Environment, Navantis, Research in Motion, Microsoft Canada and Manulife Financial.
Cathy holds an Associate Certified Coach designation with the International Coach Federation, and is a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers and the National Speakers Association. Cathy is a Psycho-Geometrics consultant licensed by Dr. Susan Dellinger.
Cathy was a founding partner of ShaughnessyHowell, an award winning training organization which earned an unprecedented 6 national gold awards for excellence given by the Canadian Society for Training and Development during her 19 years with the organization.
Boasting such large and long-term clients as Canada Post Corporation, The Bay, the Shared Services Bureau for the Province of Ontario and many other private and public sector organizations, ShaughnessyHowell continues to stand out as a leader in the training and development field.
