Dr Eileen Harris has over 8 years’ experience teaching and carrying out research and currently works for Carleton University. During this time, her focus was the psychology of learning with an emphasis on the role of interpersonal communication in the learning process.
A former CEO, Eileen credits her time as an entrepreneur as the beginning of her coaching career. Having grown a start-up company into a successful firm that was bought by a large multinational corporation, many lessons in leadership were learned. “To get the best from your people, you have to inspire, not force.” A career in coaching was a natural progression.
Eileen was part of the first cohort who graduated from the Corporate Coach International coaching school and began coaching immediately. She has worked with CEOs and senior managers across a variety of sectors including pharmaceutical, insurance and manufacturing as well as MBA programmes. Coaching in Canada, the USA and the UK, she is lead coach for RTC USA.
Eileen is Director of Learning with Ros Taylor Company and supports CCI participants to achieve Institute of Leadership and Management Level 7. Eileen loves to work with people and gets immense satisfaction from coaching. It is her belief that the needs of clients should drive business development in a very practical way.
