Performance Coaching in Business
I am a Human Performance & Wellbeing Consultant, who helps people in business to get the most out of their minds, be at the cutting edge of their industry with fresh ideas, and produce strong performances even in the most challenging of times.
Irrespective of your role in business, high-performance and profitability is determined by the quality of the minds of everyone involved.
Teams are only ever as strong as the weakest player, and this a moving dynamic; making sure everyone in your business is on their game when it counts, is a trait of great leadership.
Now, as countries around the globe rebuild their economy’s, it is fundamental to business growth that your workforce is in the best possible shape both physically and mentally.
Cohesion, communication and confidence are recognized attributes of high-performing teams and the difference between winning well and barely making your presence known.
Leading by example, is not always possible as many business leaders find their state of mind is not willing, ensure that you return to the workplace, fit for purpose, and authentically connect and support your team members.
Work with me
I can help you, individually or within your team environment in the organization, to consistently perform at your best, stress less and inspire those around them to take their game to a whole new level of success. You and your team will enjoy high energy and crystal clear clarity of mind to guide business into the new normal.
- Reduce the intensity of psychological stress that sabotage your creativity and enjoyment in life and business.
- Understand the fear of failure, that it no longer negatively dominates your actions, responses and relationships.
Connect freely and nurture your innate creativity, and resilience that in your quieter moments you are already familiar.
- Understand your desire to control situations, and others behaviours, and overcome the negative emotions that emerge when you can’t!
Stop trying to think your way out of problems, instead, allow your mind to clear naturally, be surprised by fresh ideas.
Quicker recovery from setbacks, resolve conflict with grace and ease and maximise time.
Transformative Performance Coaching Programs
4-day Immersion Training Program
An in-person one-on-one immersion training program is a rich and powerful conversation, which gives you every opportunity to experience profound realisations which will transform your leadership and influence. We take a deep dive into your perspective and realities, which allows limiting beliefs to surface and dissolve quickly.
At the end of the program, you will have identified habitual restrictive mindsets, which keeps you and your business in the realm of mediocrity. Instead, you’ll have the freedom and presence of mind to explore opportunities freely and create a high-performance and fulfilling life personally and in business.
Small-Group Coaching Program
This program is a 3-month coaching program designed for small teams of people; for each member to work with me both one-on-one and then for us to work collectively as a group for maximum impact to performance, results and overall growth of the business.
By the end of the program, team cohesion and unity, qualities required to excel a team’s performance, provides a strong foundation on which to build and develop. During times of adversity, productivity and effectiveness continue to flourish as members gain a deeper understanding of their innate resilience and wisdom to bounce back.
What People Say About Working With Denise
Floyd Woodrow MBE
Denise is impressive in her abilities by any standard. Her ability to teach and develop those around her, mark her out as someone with exceptional leadership and coaching skills. I constantly seek advice and counsel from her and trust her implicitly.
I am so grateful to have worked with Denise, I used to float in and out of different moods and believed it was other things and situations causing them. Honestly, this understanding has changed my life.
Denise has been instrumental in my evolving understanding of the Three Principles and how they specifically apply in high-performance sport. Her insightful and intuitive way of working has challenged and deepened my fundamental understanding of all human performance. I’ll always be appreciative of her significant role in my development as a performance director and coach.
Before I took part in Denise’s Health and Well Being programme, I stressed in many situations; it would prevent me from taking part in different things. I now look at the situations holistically and not let thoughts prevent me from putting myself forward.
I enjoyed this course very much as it improved my shooting technique and accuracy dramatically. I learned that you do not have to be controlled by your negative thoughts because they are not you.
I enjoyed speaking with Denise about the mind and performance. The conversations were very insightful and always had me challenging and questioning the status quo regarding mental performance. The critical pointer Denise gave was that our natural state is freedom of mind, clarity and potential. We don’t need to overexert the mind to find these states. Searching for them often leads us further into tension. I found this very relatable to direct experiences in life and sport.
I was fortunate enough to have a conversation with Denise when we met in America. It would be easy to accuse me of exaggeration or sensationalising by making the following statement, but I can only offer you the truth as I see it.
I used to struggle to remain calm and confident in stressful situations, what others think of me, what would happen if I did something wrong? We are all capable of achieving, no part of our abilities is lacking! This programme has truly changed me for the best and is perfect during my final year of University.
Denise Holland is one of my best “students.” She is one of the few students I have asked to teach with me, and I was and remain very impressed with her presence, her knowledge, her wisdom, her feeling and her responsiveness. I would say anyone who works with Denise is in excellent hands.
Denise has a tremendous understanding of how to achieve elite performance in sport. Her contagious enthusiasm is motivating and inspires you to the next level
I appreciate the support Denise gave me when I was transitioning into my new role at Leinster and helping me understand how to ‘free my mind!
Denise’s new approach is great for teamwork, we don’t get upset with each other anywhere near as much, and get over disappointments quickly.
Meeting Denise was perfect timing, written in the stars, foretold, whatever. My world was falling apart, my marriage had ended, my child was in serious trouble, and I was upping sticks and moving up North to run the biggest, most complex project of my career.
Four months later, my project is an astonishing success, my marriage is back on track, and best of all, my baby is coming back to me. I am different at work, at home, inside my head, and others can see it. The dark days aren’t dark any more because they don’t last, and the light days are far more frequent. Denise’s workj isn’t just amazing in the world of sport but any area of life.
Denise has the skills and experience to wake people up to deeper knowledge about themselves. In the sporting arena, this knowledge happens to be crucially important.
I reached out to Denise when my world seemed to be falling apart. I had recently received a diagnosis of two different types of cancer; my son was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and had little time to live. I did not know how to process all of this, and my mental state spiralled! Within ten minutes of quiet time with Denise, I felt everything lifting from my shoulders and a feeling of calm settling in its place. Working with Denise has given me a deeper understanding and knowledge of the mind, it keeps me on a healthy path not only in general day-to-day life but as a life skill in my work environment and sport. Forever grateful to you, Denise.
