    Strengths Profiling & Coaching

    Coaching for Individuals, Groups and Business

    We work with scaling business and individuals who want more self awareness and better self management. Our bespoke individual and/ or team coaching programmes enable business and professionals to challenge their thinking, reach their full potential, succeed and grow.

    We use a scientifically proven strengths profile assessment to help leaders gain clarity and make more informed decisions. Why? Researchers have proven that people perform six times better when using their strengths and are happier, more engaged and more likely to achieve their goals.


    Not only this, strengths create a common language that is spoken in a business, understood by all and often welcomed. It can help shift and shape a culture that is more self aware, more open to weaknesses, to learn from mistakes and leverage people resources in a better way.


    If you are looking to improve self awareness, increase personal effectiveness and impact, grow your leaders from good to excellent, manage culture, challenge thinking, improve retention, enrich talent development programmes, have more meaningful performance discussions, improve team relationships or dynamics, this is an effective and simple tool you can use today with individuals, teams or groups that doesn't cost a lot.

Maria especially understands that people are complex and can be difficult to manage if you don't know how. Maria's favorite things to do in the whole world are enabling people in business to grow, daily exercise for her body and soul, and surfing online when she can, typically late at night for quirky fashion items and style inspiration when the kids are in bed and the laptop is away. 'Different' was probably her first word, and she uses it to describe herself, anyone and everyone – because what gets her out of bed in the morning are people that want more success in their work, to be authentic and happy. She’s on a mission to help them discover how, embrace self awareness and 'be the change they want to be' - Ghandi

    What My Clients Say

    Performance Management 

    Kate Hyde, Owner and Managing Director - 'Often I am feeling my way in the dark and so to have this professional guidance is just, well, great to be honest. What fantastic insight Maria gave me in the HR consultancy work she did and conversations we had. I found it amazing she picked up such a lot in the short time we had together. She made some amazing points. It's very clear to me how they will work. And good to know there is a framework (for want of a better word) to make this happen. Thanks so much for this, Maria. Really found it so helpful (and calming)'

    HR Compliance and Best Practice

    John Clifford, Finance Director - 'Maria helped us update our policies and contracts in a business that is changing and growing.

She was organised, attentive and always available to help. She gave us a professional and consistently high quality service.'

    Employment Law Advice

    Vaughan Ryan, Business Owner and Director - 'Thanks Maria for your professionalism. In today's ever complex world of employment law, it's both prudent and necessary to have access to professional and independent HR advice on all your employment matters. As a small retail business in Cork city with 4 employees we know this all too well as we had occasion this year to call on Maria's HR expertise.
