Leadership Development & Coaching Programmes:

‘Deirdre Murray of People Resources has been involved with the CRH Group from April 2008 in the redesign and implementation of a performance management system which forms an integral part of a broader Leadership Development Programme for Europe Materials. She continues to support this through psychometric assessments and tailored individual coaching for all senior management throughout the Europe Materials Group.
I would highly recommend Ms. Murray for any future assignments she may be involved with.’

Some of our best management practices and development programmes have been developed in conjunction with People Resources.’

The group work and interaction was fantastic – they had the opportunity to apply the training techniques in breakout situations.

‘Deirdre Murray was employed by Irish Cement Ltd to implement a performance management system and to act as a coach for several members of the management team. From the company’s perspective the coaching would focus primarily on giving and receiving feedback in a performance management meeting and the difficulties that might arise.

Deirdre also facilitated the training and introduction of managers to the new performance management system -she encouraged participation and discussion throughout the training which was essential for the buy-in of the management team. The company were facing a lot of resistance with the implementation of the new system and with Deirdre’s assistance we now have a fully operational and valued system in place across the company.’
Nicola O’Malley HR Director Irish Cement Ltd
