Force to shell out €66,000 on executive coaching course
The gardaí are about to shell out €66,000 for an executive coaching course for 44 members in its senior ranks.
New tender documents published show that the successful executive coaching enterprise is to provide coaching services for 37 superintendents and seven chief superintendents across the force.
There are more than 200 chief superintendents and superintendents serving in the force.
As part of their work, the executive coaches will be required to provide four one-and-a-half-hour one-on-one coaching sessions to the 44 senior gardaí over a six-month period.
Under the heading of 'Executive Coaching learning outcomes' the promoted chief superintendents and superintendents will have "developed a greater understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses and the impact that their behavioural style has on others".
