Driven by results

Powered by people

At Coughlan & Co we work with organisations to help them achieve and measure greater impact.

We help them to analyse their business horizons, and solve strategic and operational problems through facilitated planning, cultural change, workplace reviews and evaluation. We are skilled at investigating workplace issues and facilitating conflict resolution.  We listen, analyse and provide clear, concrete options for change.

We can equip your people, individually and in teams, with the tools and strategies they need to develop strategic and operational capacity, leadership capability and personal vitality using strengths-based coaching.

How we work with you



Our programs are not based on assumptions. Before we commence any assignment, we ensure our approach captures all your needs. Before we customise any program, we find out what matters most to you and your people. We rely on evidence, collected by you or revealed through focus groups or a workforce survey.



Key messages on positive change need to be targeted to the audience and reinforced. Our programs are strengthened by high impact communications strategies.



Compelling learning experiences are catalysts for change. Our online and on site workshops are content-rich, relevant, highly regarded, and lasting in effect.


Measure success

Evaluation is high on our agenda. We love data and measuring results. We report on participation and impact. If you have an appetite for evidence, talk to us.

Use your Strengths

Are you ready to focus on strengths instead of weaknesses?

Our latest offering in strengths-based coaching can shift your mindset, break through barriers and give you and your organisation the boost you’ve been looking for.


How we help


We work with developing managers to deepen their awareness, confidence and capability and help them convert effort into the behaviours and attitudes that underpin great performance. 


We work with teams like yours who want to be more effective, guided by data, and empowered with strategy as well as clearly-defined roles and responsibilities.



We work with organisations who need to deploy scarce resources for maximum impact, and strengthen your reputation for accountability to funding bodies, sponsors, partners or an Executive, Board or Council.
