My firm Better Outcomes wins in the Independent Training Consultancy category of IITD awards

In What I'm working on at the moment on March 12, 2012 at 2:31 pm

The “Irish Institute of Training  and Development Awards National Training Awards 2012” are focused on engagement, collaboration, participative management, excellence in training initiatives, transparency, innovation and learning and development of both individuals and organizations.

Eoin receives his “Certificate of Outstanding Achievement” from Sinead Heneghan (CEO IITD) at the annual Irish Institute of Training  and Development Awards last Friday (9/3/2012) for his Better Outcomes mentoring programme.

Mentoring plays a key role in the personal development of business people and the resulting success of their businesses. Mentoring can have a particular impact within the 85% of businesses in Ireland which are small. However mentoring is often neglected as the small business owner struggles with many competing demands on their attention. This becomes a vicious circle as the focus on key business objectives that a mentoring relationship can engender is a key contributor to better small business outcomes.

Using technological tools Eoin Costello (Better Outcomes) has devised an innovative approach to mentoring which satisfies both the needs of the busy small business owner and the requirements of professional mentoring relationships.

According to his mentee Mary Kelly (Easy Payments Plus)

“Since establishing my business I have worked with 3 different mentors. Eoin’s structured approach and his posing of thought provoking questions has made the most impact on me. The outcome for me personally is a more professional approach to my business. His innovative use of web tools ensured continuity and momentum during our work. Eoin introduced me to a wide variety of relevant concepts and thought leaders which added value to my business through creating awareness of how I needed to change in order to lead a small but growing business. I am extremely happy with Eoin’s approach and the outcome of this mentor assignment.“
