AREAS OF EXPERTISE

1:1 COACHING

What I offer is support and empathy allied with objectivity and perspective as you identify ways to grow, make positive change and progress your thinking.

TEAM COACHING

I strive to identify and develop a clear picture of what they want to achieve and I use a systematic approach to meet those challenges and deliver the results.

LEADERSHIP

I focus on the practical and the achievable.  I work carefully and methodically with clients to scope the outcomes they seek, as well as the challenges they face.

PROGRAMMES

Working with law firms and in-house teams, I design and deliver bespoke  programmes for legal professionals at all stages of their career from trainee to board member.

MEET KATIE DA GAMA

Katie has twenty years’ experience as a legal professional and, until May 2018, was the Managing Partner of the Dublin office of an international law firm.  She now practices as an Executive Coach and Leadership Development Consultant.  In her 1 to 1 coaching, professional development programmes and consultancy work, she combines her analytical thinking style from her legal experience with her creative and empathetic approach to ensure the focus is always on practical and workable solutions, as well as tangible progress and positive change. Katie adopts a ‘thinking partnership’ method into all of her work and brings a wealth of experience of leading teams and at being at a senior level in business to establish trust and rapport with her clients.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

I would like to thank you, Katie, for your incredible generosity and help to me to date.  I found our sessions to be revealing, enlightening and empowering, and often in the most varying and surprising ways.  You taught me the power of listening and you both encouraged and challenged me.  This was a foundation which has stuck, and was the value piece. 

In House Lawyer Dublin

Katie is an excellent coach. Her friendly and open approach to each session makes the experience a positive and supportive one. Katie is extremely professional, a great listener and her experience as a Lawyer and Managing Partner and her knowledge of the legal profession adds a unique depth and insight to her coaching.

Senior Counsel Dublin

I would thoroughly recommend any lawyer to treat themselves to a couple of sessions with Katie, whether they are looking to make a career move or not. It is so valuable to have the space to take a 360 degree look at your career and how it sits with your life.  As a former solicitor, Katie understands the demands of practice.
