…He took the time to understand what makes me tick in a scientific way… Problems and questions I had been wrestling with for years were solved and opportunities seemed to flood in… it was the most valuable investment I’ve made in myself for years.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ronan in 2017 whilst I was working in the strategy team at Commonwealth Bank. I was at the point in my career where I was looking to increase my impact and understand under what conditions I could be most successful.

From the catch-up over coffee, Ronan’s style was very disarming. He calmly and clearly articulated how he could add value to my thinking and then over a series of eight sessions, we went through a process of understanding my drivers and how to best leverage them for impact.

What I loved about my time with Ronan was that he took the time to understand what makes me tick in a scientific way, then used that information to map out a very clear set of actions to get towards my goal. Problems and questions I had been wrestling with for years were solved and opportunities seemed to flood in – he calls it the abundance mindset! Over a 4 month period I was promoted to a senior role within CBA, and then subsequently recruited to join a new firm as their CEO.

My time with Ronan laid a foundation where I felt very clear about where I could make the most difference, and how to set about the conditions for success. I can’t quite explain the magic, but it was the most valuable investment I’ve made in myself for years. The return on investment was tenfold! I look forward to continuing to work with Ronan and couldn’t recommend his magic highly enough to anyone who is looking to increase their trajectory, solve a complex problem, make difficult trade-offs or investigate what the future can hold for them.

…The results have been incredible… In the past 12 months revenue has doubled and profits are up 1100%

I started working with Ronan in late 2013 – 18 months after I started my own business. I was in a rather unpleasant place at the time, having had an expensive failed hire and a sharp drop in revenue. I completed an intensive one-month of sessions, which allowed me to go away for the Christmas break in a much more calm and inspired mindset.

Since then we have gradually worked on my business and the results have been incredible. In the last 12 months revenue has doubled, and our profit is up by 1100%. Best of all, I’m feeling so much happier – on purpose, motivated and inspired. This has had a positive impact on my team, husband, friends and family as well.

Working with Ronan is the best investment in myself I have ever made and I’m extremely grateful to him for his support; several of my business and personal friends have become clients of his as well. The future is bright!

…Ronan is the ultimate professional executive coach with immense experience and insight…

I regard Ronan as my secret weapon, in a quest to develop people to their full potential.

I engaged Ronan as an executive coach in 2013 to work with mid and senior level employees.

The process is not for the faint-hearted. Some clients have gained life-changing insights into their own personalities, and how to better deal with the world around them through Ronan’s out of the box thinking. Ronan marries the clients personal goals with the commercial results of the organisation to get the very best.

Ronan is the ultimate professional executive coach with immense experience and insight.I highly recommend his services.

Excellent skills and simple yet effective tools that I continue to use.…takes a holistic approach so that lasting improvement results… he understands real business situations and can adapt his guidance appropriately.

I engaged Ronan as a business coach looking for some tips to improve my personal performance in relation to myself, my organisation and the important people in my life. There was no specific catalyst or crisis for the engagement. I saw it more as a check in to ensure that I was being as effective as I could be.

Ronan has an engaging style and is very professional which facilitates an open and trusting coaching session. Within a couple of sessions we were able to identify some areas to work on that would be extremely beneficial. In particular:

  • Personal energy – how to perform with less wear and tear
  • Goal setting – tools to provide clarity of purpose and motivate action
  • Financial planning – overcome financial barriers to performance
  • Organisational change management – approaches to attitudinal and behavioural change
  • Resilience – performing in uncertain environments

Ronan has excellent skills and simple yet effective tools that I continue to use. He seeks root cause of blockers and takes a holistic approach to remove and overcome these so that lasting improvement results.

I feel, refreshed, focused and energetic.I have a new routine that I enjoy, provides me more energy and quarantines time in my week to focus on my life, my goals and my balance.

Ronan has given me better perspective so that I now have more clarity of my goals; though not in the way that I thought I would.I have a much better understanding of what I value and how to use that to motivate action.

Where previously I would use sheer determination to plough through workload and frustration, I now achieve the similar output with calmness, purpose and, most of the time, enjoyment.Further, I am purposefully building better foundations for higher performance in the future.
There is a lot of work to do to achieve what I seek to achieve; however, this will not be an arduous task, but instead as a pursuit that I will enjoy along the way.

Ronan has an excellent understanding of how organisations function, the nature of strategy and the nature of buyer / seller relationships which means that he understands real business situations and can adapt his guidance appropriately.

Thanks for the help.

Ronan was able to help me understand and get perspective on a number of significant areas of my life including starting a regional headquarters in Singapore

The key thing for the coaching was getting a recommendation from someone who had got real results in their own life with the coaching and secondly the confidentiality and professionalism

Ronan was able to help me understand and get perspective on a number of significant areas of my life including a move with my employer to another country in a completely new role and starting a regional headquarters in Singapore

My work with Ronan has allowed me to become a lot more authentically myself -I’m very comfortable accepting my strengths and weaknesses and working with my teams.

I have an increasing sense of ease and acceptance with my own goals personally and professionally and my willingness to go after them.

He really has a lot of actionable insights that help drive whatever your personal objective is.

When I started the program a lot of it was how to get the best out of myself in my current position but it really transformed form that initial phase very quickly to future phases where we dealt with more personal and transformational issues in terms of leadership and how I take a more active role in driving my career.

I got a lot of benefit with each conversation – personal confidence was one of the big parts of that, and how to influence others, how to take greater leadership, initiative and courage. There were a lot of aspects in my professional development that Ronan really helped with.

I loved the process … invest the time in it!

I loved the process, I love that it was very personalised and it was a reasonable time commitment and I got some great benefits from it

Number one benefit for me was that I discovered this new time zone which is 5.30am where I get an extra hour into my day consistently now – clear thinking time.

Number one is that I’ve got some time for myself and I’ve been surprised how that’s affected my home life and my career and my job performance

It’s definitely helped my confidence – invest the time in it!

Ronan has been the big change in my life and my perspective of the world, and my taking accountability, and has changed the direction of my career and my life in general. I would highly recommend Ronan.

The journey I went on was highly empowering  – I don’t know whether I would have been confident enough to go for a leadership role such as this where I’m running the country for a big brand if I hadn’t worked on myself so thoroughly with the coaching.

The outcome is a contentment that definitely wasn’t there before and understanding that work is only a part of my life, and not the part of my life that it was previously, so it put work in its right place and ironically I love work more now.

The paradox is great, I love that, I love that so many things that I’ve learned on this journey are completely paradoxical at every level.

The biggest takeaway was empowerment and the thing that comes with empowerment is responsibility so taking responsibility for the things that were happening in my life was one of the biggest takeaways. You learn to take action and to know what ramifications to expect and to then the take responsibility for that action.

It’s completely invaluable – I prefer being in exec coaching just because there is an understanding of the corporate world and the pressures and what it’s like to be in an office 5 days a week and the different challenges that come with that and the accountability and the understanding of the people around you and the way energy works between people is completely invaluable.

I would advise that if anyone has any issues at work and most people do – I’m not in the minority – but they live being unhappy at work, and so I would recommend that if you are unhappy at work or if you’ve got a situation that keeps coming up and you can’t understand why it’s happening, then exec coaching with Ronan will be amazing for you, and invaluable, and it could change how you see the world not just at work but in every single way.

Ronan has been the big change in my life and my perspective of the world, and my taking accountability myself, and has changed the direction of my career and my life in general. I would highly recommend Ronan.

Ronan to me is the person that when you’re looking to grow he’ll be there to have your back and help you find the right way… it is just unbelievable …now have an agency that’s doing phenomenally and have gotten investment capital ($1.1million) in a brand new business we’re bringing to market.

What brought me to the coaching in the first place was that I was doing well but I’d never run a business above a certain level and I was growing rapidly and I needed help to reach that level.

A colleague of mine referred me across to Ronan and from that moment it changed my life and changed my business and allowed me to take opportunities that I never thought were possible.

Awaken started pretty well in 2015 and then through quite a few different strategies that we’d looked at, and growth analogies and also through restructuring the entire team, we grew by 120% across to 2016 which was fantastic.

The biggest outcomes for me were, I‘d run a small boutique agency and once it started growing I needed the skills to build a bigger team, engage with people on a global scale, work with VCs and understand what they were talking about, understand every term that they have as also understanding how to structure and build companies, as well as navigating the entire process from funding, conception, to doing a deal and calling Ronan from London in the middle of the night to cross check across different ideas and from Dubai at different times…

… that has been invaluable, and also my growth from being a small Managing Director to now being the CEO of a company that’s got offices in two regions.

We started developing our own solutions and our own ideas for the new company in 2016 and through the course of the year with development and then raising funds it took about 10 months all up and we received U.S. $1.1 million investment.

Ronan to me is the person that when you’re looking to grow he’ll be there to have your back and help you find the right way and play devil’s advocate and ask you some of the hardest questions that you’d never think about asking yourself and also put you in the hot seat to make you evaluate every decision that you’re working on.

Conversely, when the chips go down – and businesses don’t always go straight up, there bumps at times – it’s the times when you have to sit down and look at your P&L and look at if I had to make sacrifices what would I get rid of, then I’d rather work out of a cardboard box or my garage than give up my time with Ronan because I know that working with him that I’d get through it. I would sacrifice rent and other things before that in order to maintain it because I can build a business with Ronan.

To me with that type of knowledge I get out of it is just unbelievable and I wouldn’t now have an agency that’s doing phenomenally and have got investment capital in a brand new business we’re bringing to market without his expertise and guidance.

Ronan has been the big change in my life and my perspective of the world, and my taking accountability myself, and has changed the direction of my career and my life in general. I would highly recommend Ronan.

…did it at my own time and my own pace, so I really got to understand myself much better.
I feel like I’ve developed a whole new career… I always saw myself as working as an employee for a big company and now I’ve completely changed that.

I’d reached the top of where I wanted to be and got to a point where I didn’t know what was next or really what I wanted to do. A friend of mine worked with you and I noticed such a change in him both at work and in himself – there was just a real clarity in him, who he was and a real comfort in being himself that just came through from the work he did with you. So I thought I’d give you a call and see if you could help … and it absolutely did help.

I came to talk about my career and that was the key driver, but in working with you quite quickly I realised that there were other things as well that were holding me back, and pretty quickly we got to a few core issues … I started understanding myself much better … I got clear on what I wanted to do and who I wanted to be, and without telling me those things or leading me down a path, I could see that you knew a way to get those things out of me, and did it at my own time and my own pace, so I really got to understand myself much better.

I feel like I’ve developed a whole new career… I always saw myself as working as an employee for a big company and now I’ve completely changed that.

And also in my personal life I feel like I’ve got the skills to set the direction of my entire life based on what I want to do – you gave me the confidence to get what I want from my own life.

You’ve really helped me clarify what my skills are and certainly in the leadership area I think I was a strong leader for some time but didn’t know how to really articulate that to people… you helped me understand what those qualities are and how to get them across to other people.

Most recently when I’ve been working as a consultant to a business they’ve naturally seen those qualities in me and I’ve realised how important they are to that business …and how it affects the culture and the success of that business as well, which has been a key part of my input to that business at this point

I would absolutely recommend you and have done to other friends as well.

…Ronan’s coaching directly delivered a 65% increase in revenue …

When I first engaged Ronan to coach for our company, it was to improve people and business performance, billable time and increase revenue. I was initially sceptical with some of the outcomes that he said were achievable and even asked him after the first set of positive results “what’s the catch?” The truth is there was no catch, and I retained Ronan to work with us for more than 1 year during which time he coached me and another senior staff member with positive and measureable results. Within a short time of noticing these changes I was impressed and even referred him out to family with further success there too.

The benefits of this coaching were clearly evident on personal levels as well as being solid and tangible at the business level, whereby we achieved a 5-times return on investment when measuring the fees paid for the coaching over 1 year against the associated increases in earnings in the same period.

Within the business, Ronan’s coaching also directly delivered to us a 65% increase in billable time and revenue where needed, as well as improving our bottom line measurably in terms of net profit. In addition, during my extended leave from the business these high levels of performance were maintained and the business continued to operate well in my absence.

On a personal level I have benefitted a lot from our sessions and am much stronger for it as is anyone who has worked with him. Without hesitation I recommend Ronan for personal and business coaching wherever you need to improve your personal performance, abilities or even your own view of yourself and what is possible for you. At the business level, this and his deep knowledge and use of effective coaching techniques, has translated into more money in the bank for our company. Thank you.

Ronan lives what he coaches & his work is a reflection of this. His ability to get to the core issues and use relevant techniques to disperse them quickly and effectively is truly amazing.

The first question Ronan ever asked me was ‘So who is Lucy?’, I burst into tears and believed my response of ‘I don’t know’.

Ronan’s response ‘Great, that is the most perfect place for you to be right now’

I was a little shocked, because it felt far from perfect from where I was sitting.

This was only six months ago, when, not only my personal but my professional life seemed in free fall. I had been on anti-depressants for two years, had resigned as director of a business i’d worked hard at for 10 years, and I could barely function on a rational level, let alone make even the smallest decisions about my life or turning my career around. I believed I would be on anti-depressants for the rest of my life, the thought of working again, let alone starting a new business, gripped me with so much fear that any action was disabled. My daily life was consumed with constant negative thoughts about where my life is at and where it ‘should be’, not knowing how to get myself out of the mental hell I was in, and the more I thought, the worse it got!

Within 3 months of working with Ronan, I had totally come off of anti-depressants, I have regained so much power in my life that I cannot believe I was ever on them. I have a totally different mindset towards life, work and my purpose & I have unconsciously changed patterns which had kept me feeling stuck for most of my life. I am working with a great company and am heading further towards my future goals, which at the point before working with Ronan, I could not even fathom.

This is all down to putting my faith and commitment into every bit of communication, technique & task set through Ronan’s coaching from the outset.

Ronan lives what he coaches & his work is a reflection of this. His ability to get to the core issues and use relevant techniques to disperse them quickly and effectively is truly amazing. Using this with setting relevant tasking to keep consistency and actual change on a daily life basis, as well as focusing on the bigger picture of goal setting in ways which relate specifically to you and your aspirations.

Ronan will be my coach for a long time to come, both as a personal and business coach. Every session is momentous and there is so much more to learn and achieve through his coaching to ensure I excel in all areas of my life.

If I can give any advice about working with Ronan….Make the choice to put your belief in him, no matter how much you might want to resist at times. You get out what you put in, stay committed and do the work. You will be challenged, there is a difference between challenge & resistance. Once you choose to accept the challenge, the results are amazing & only get better!

Having experienced the impact on me and seeing that of the people I know who also use him I would highly recommend him, especially if you own your own business

I came to see Ronan at a point in which I was navigating alot of change in my career and personal life. As I was referred by my partner I was initially sceptical of what value Ronan could provide as I felt I knew what I needed to do.
Ronan spent alot of time working with me on my personal alignment and was fantastic at applying methods through language that I understood.
He is not only armed with all the tools to assist and very knowledgeable he is also very easy to work with which comes from a genuine desire to help.
Over the course of working with him I changed my working situation giving me alot more focus and the freedom to pursue my passion for social business outside of my regular role.

I also gained a lot more clarity and have used this to push towards my own business venture which will soon materialise.
Having experienced the impact on me and seeing that of the people I know who also use him I would highly recommend him, especially if you own your own business.

…over 800% return on investment…

I was frustrated in my working life having been in the same company for over 12 years. I acknowledged I was in need for professional help where I engaged the services of Ronan from Unstuck professional coaching.

6 weeks after engaging Ronan, I had successfully found new employment and significantly increased my income. The return on investment for the coaching was over 8 times just from my employment change!

I now genuinely feel positive and confident in all aspects of my life. I no longer feel that old anxiety that was once there and I am confident about my future, where I’m going and what I am capable of achieving.

I am consistently taking positive action in areas that I previously avoided, and my behaviours are much more congruent with who I am and who I want to be. I discovered also that I now operate with strength when I’m outside my comfort zone, and I know this will continue to benefit me going forward, both personally and professionally.

I am looking forward to continuing this relationship into the future.

You have given me the tools to turn my life around and create my world the way I want it to be…

Just wanted to let you know how much you have helped me. You have allowed me appreciate and recognise all the good things in my life, and have given me the tools to turn my life around, and create my world the way I want it to be.

Had it not been for our sessions, I would still be stumbling around in semi darkness not knowing why things are the way they are. I understand that everything in my world is my creation, and with what you have given me, it has allowed me to recreate my world, and my life, the way I want it to be. You have helped me remove the old limitations and beliefs, where I used to believe that I could not do better. I was stuck. Now I am not.

You are a Great Guru. Thank you for showing me that the world truly is my oyster.

Thank you for everything.

…an inspiration and a revelation… I encourage managers to attend and embrace the course

I attended Powell Business Leadership (Moda Solutions) at a time in my career when I felt it was not going in the right direction. My confidence had taken a set back and I couldn’t see a way out. I met Ronan and we discussed a way forward. I would have to say I was dubious about the course, but was willing to try it out. I would say that I was unaware of how challenging the whole process was going to be. It confronted everything I had previously done as a manager. The process questioned so many different aspects of my working life.

As examples;

1. My work practices;

a. Why did I work long hours and not achieve desired results?

b. Why was motivation in my team not at its optimum?

c. Why was I pulling at the team members rather than directing and pointing them in the right direction

2. Work life Balance:

a. Long hours were disturbing my time at home with family and friends

b. My fitness levels were declining

c. Tiredness was becoming an issue

3. Other team members:

a. They weren’t being challenged to their full potential

b. Their motivation to stay within the organisation was decreasing

4. The way we speak:

a. My process of communication such as using words efficiently and correctly

b. Being more clear and to the point

The above are four areas that Ronan allowed me to confront. These are not the only areas, however they are areas I got the greatest benefit from.

I now recommend managers of all levels to attend this coaching. I waited a few months to write this testimonial to ensure that what I experienced wasn’t a short term rehabilitation but a complete reformation.

After months of putting what I learned into practice I am a convert. Ronan has been an inspiration and revelation. I encourage businesses to put their managers through this coaching, and I would encourage managers to attend and embrace the course.

A very happy customer.

Before the coaching with Ronan I was indecisive and felt that I was stuck with no options. Ronan has helped me to put things in perspective and to resolve my personal and work matters. Engaging in this coaching has enabled me to make the changes that I want to create and I know that this is just the start of my transformation.

I am a Project Manager for a major Australian Bank. I approached Ronan last year to assist me with improving my confidence with public speaking/presentation skills.

was feeling like I had lost my identity… he has the ability to put you at ease very quickly ….. masterfully working with you to move you to your desired result

I first started seeing Ronan Powell for coaching in early December 2009. At the time I was coming up to almost 6 years in my job. This job was extremely demanding involving very long hours. When I went to see Ronan I was feeling exhausted, very stressed, feeling like I had lost my identity and that my whole life revolved around my job. I was missing fun and laughter in my life. I was also finding it hard to sleep as I couldn’t switch off my mind at night. Aside from this I had been unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant for over 18 months which I suspected was not happening due to the level of stress I was experiencing.

Understandably when I went to see Ronan, I was more than ready for a change. My first focus was to get a new job. Ronan worked with me in creating and visualising the ideal role and life I wanted to create. The sessions enabled me to reconnect with my true self and together we worked through obstacles clearing any limiting beliefs that were holding me back from moving forward. This enabled me to prioritise my health and wellbeing, reducing my stress and improving my sleep. The change and transformation I achieved as a result of the work with Ronan led to me securing a new job in early 2010. Even more amazing is the fact that after trying to get pregnant for so long I found out in early March that I was 5 weeks pregnant.

I thoroughly recommend Ronan for one on one coaching. He has the ability to put you at ease very quickly, taking the time to get to know you and understand your current state before masterfully working with you to move you to your desired result.

I am now able to make myself truly happy on all levels… tools to help me achieve my goals for the rest of my life….. I honestly feel like a new person

Before I started seeing Ronan I was living day to day – just ‘existing’, believing that there was no other way to live my life.

I am a married mother of two beautiful boys and I own a fantastic cafe. My life was a constant movement from the moment I woke at four am, finishing work at three in the afternoon, fitting in homework and after school activities, do my martial arts training, and running a home until I dropped into to bed each night just to start it all again the next day. I truly believed that this was my duty to myself and my family to live my life in this way and that there were no other options. I never allowed myself any time for me, I felt I did not have enough time for what mattered most – the people around me who I love. I felt that if I was not in the cafe then it could not possibly run, without me.

Ronan has made me realise so many things. Most importantly though with Ronan’s help I am now able to ascertain what the most important aspects of my life are to make myself truly happy on all levels. Ronan has given me tools to help me not only understand myself better but help me to achieve my goals for now and well into the future for the rest of my life.

I honestly feel like a new person who just cannot get enough of this magical thing called life.

…you opened a door for me…. I just want to say a big thank you because my business and I are blooming and we continue to grow!

Dear Ronan, Thank you for our time together. I was hopelessly trying to find the reason for my anger and frustration which was keeping me from focusing on my business and look at me now! You were my stepping stone to a whole new world and I thank you for showing me how to focus on my goals and turn it into reality. Once we found what my ultimate dream was the little goals were easily put together and with the tasks you gave me it all fell into place.

You opened a door for me that felt good to walk through and I could embrace the changes. I just want to say a big thank you because my business and I are blooming and we continue to grow!

Thank you for this coaching Ronan – it has proved to be hugely beneficial in all areas of my life especially the tremendous benefit to me and my family. The work we did together has contributed more than anything else to my feeling this way and being much calmer. I still take and apply many of things from our coaching and am much more self-aware as a result.

I have also recommended you to others and although I can’t make anyone else do this coaching, I know they could do with it, and will certainly become better people because of what you do. Thank you!

…the sense of unclutteredness was wonderful … I set up particular goals and find I am meeting them or exceeding them …has a wonderful ability to put you at ease and facilitate you to achieve what you would really like to achieve

I started seeing Ronan early 2010. I was feeling overloaded from work and from dealing with my parents estate and my mother being in a nursing home. I felt slowly being ground down. Ronan and I had a long initial chat and he asked what did I want. I said I’d like the feeling of standing under a cool, crisp cleansing waterfall. He said I would get that. And indeed I did and do. The coaching sessions with Ronan left me feeling with a wonderful sense of lightness. I felt like I was looking at a calm, peaceful green paddock with nothing in it. The sense of unclutteredness alone was wonderful. Then I simply put into the paddock what I wanted. Design your own life. Not only that, but I can redesign this or modify it if I wish. I set up particular goals and I find I am meeting or exceeding them. When I got stuck, Ronan had tools and methods for overcoming that.

I can heartily recommend Ronan for one to one coaching for anyone wanting to let go of stuff in their lives that they really don’t need. The sense of lightness of being and energy after a coaching session is palpable.
Ronan has a wonderful ability to put you at ease and facilitate you to achieve what you would really like to achieve.

…I am feeling fulfilled and connected …..the old patterns and feelings that stopped me from getting what I wanted in life are now gone

Before hiring Ronan, I was feeling overwhelmed, out of control and disconnected from my life and myself. After working together, I now have a new understanding of what my purpose in life is and am feeling fulfilled and connected and many of the old patterns and feelings that stopped me from getting what I wanted in life are now gone.
I thoroughly recommend Ronan
