Coaching as a Closely Held Enterprise: Interview with Christine McDougall
C Kellahan International Journal of Coaching in Organizations 2005
This article is based on an interview that occurred early in 2005, between Christine McDougall and the interviewer, Cherie Kellahan. Cherie is one of Christine’s clients and was the head of Marketing for McDonalds Australia for many years. Her career change includes talk back radio. Christine agreed to be interviewed for several reasons. She is a single parent, has been a small business owner herself for 20 years, and is one of the pioneers of coaching in Australia. She felt this interview may add some inspirational perspective to other coaches. Her business has evolved from basic life coaching, to specialist work with senior executives as they mature and emerge as powerful, integral leaders.
