She has worked within an executive coaching and facilitation capacity with leaders in fast growth commercial organisations in UK, Ireland and globally. Paula worked within professional services and consultancy (KPMG) until establishing her own executive coaching business Wilson Sloan Consulting, based in Northern Ireland but practicing across the globe.

Coaching Style

Paula specialises in Executive and Leadership Coaching and Executive Team Coaching. She aims to enable clients to assess their existing capability, increase their own self awareness, and develop the required competence, capability and commitment to deliver improved performance and business results, adjust to new organisational realities, and not just survive – but thrive.

Special Interests

Paula is a very experienced team coach, working collectively and collaboratively with Boards and Executive teams in fast growth organisations to address real challenges and deliver enhanced results. She has also worked with a range of senior executive women from professional services organisations including law firms and consultancies prior to, during and after their parental leave. As a working mother with a previous background in these sectors she empathetically appreciates the challenges potentially faced and the requirement for space to plan and reflect to be best placed to handle the related transition for personal and business benefit.

"The six sessions I had with my ECC Coach changed my perspective of coaching. I was initially uncertain (and possibly sceptical) about the benefits of coaching but my coach read me very well and knew when to coax a response out from me by being encouraging and when to firmly push me to see the benefits of reframing some of my previously held positions."

Head of Legal, International Property Group

"Both from my personal experience of ECC’s approach, and from seeing the impact on our company I can particularly recommend their pragmatic approach and their insight into our collective and individual needs."

Senior Leader, Commercial Property Management and Investment Company

"The team is a pleasure to work with, consistently bringing expert advice and guidance, energy and professionalism to the partnership."

Diversity and Inclusion Executive, Multinational Investment Bank

"The coaches at ECC are commercial, pragmatic and highly focused. The coaching they provide on an individual basis has given valuable insight and helped our senior executives to gain greater perspective in terms of managing relationships, prioritising, strategic thinking, influencing and confidence."

Senior Leader, Multinational Retailing Company

"I found my ECC coaching sessions incredibly valuable - for the unique and necessary space I was seeking as a sole proprietor to feel heard, understood and connected to a peer in business. My coaching experience provided a safe space where I could be the real me, and provided a relationship I could truly trust. Thank you ECC."
