In 2005, Damian Culhane CMgr FCMI’s son was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It was a devastating blow. Damian felt it was up to him to hold it together. “I had to be positive for my family, even though I was crushed and crumbling inside.”
But his son’s health made him reconsider his priorities. It was the push he needed to start his own coaching business. His specialism would be compassion and empathy. It was a far cry from the intense sales and targets environment he was used to working in. He was ambitious and successful – but only to a point. Promotions would often be followed by underperformance, and he sometimes struggled to get on with his managers.
