Doug Betts

Doug Betts is an experienced Senior HR professional with over 20 years experience working across a variety of companies from large corporates to not for profit. 
Prior to his own consultancy business, Doug worked in a variety of in-house roles up to the Director of People & Culture level. Doug believes that most issues in a business come from inexperienced line managers not knowing or perhaps understanding how to manage their teams effectively. 
These people are very often technical experts who are promoted for that reason, but very rarely are these individuals trained how to manage people. If they are, they are often sent on a "one size fits all" management training course, which is usually over one day, where they make lots of notes. Unfortunately, these notes are usually very quickly forgotten about as they try to stay on top of the day job. 

Doug offers a more bespoke approach, by coming into an organisation, getting to understand the business and its culture and then coaching leaders and managers at all levels from first time line managers to senior leadership team members. His unique coaching techniques ensures the leaders get the best out of their people by understanding the teams and individuals and the challenges they are facing. He couples this with bespoke leadership toolkit training delivered onsite with the aim of making sure people leaders (not managers!) can network and support each other efficiently. Away from Hr, Doug is a 11 x marathon runner (best PB was in Dublin in 3 hours and 40 minutes). He also loves travel, spending time with friends and real ale! Doug is also just about to publish his own book.
