    Strengths Profiling and Coaching

    Mission: Self- Awareness + Self-Management = More Success

    We work with scaling businesses and individuals who want to reach their full potential offering bespoke individual and/ or team coaching programs.

     

    We develop leaders that are more self aware, agile and drive their own career success using a scientifically proven strengths profile tool. 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. Our passion is to enable people in business to succeed and grow.

     

    Strengths coaching brings much more than higher performance to a growing business, it creates a common language that is spoken, welcomed and understood by all. It can help shift and shape a culture that is more self aware, more open to talking about weaknesses, making mistakes as well as understanding individual strengths, that are necessary to learn and grow.

     

    If you are looking to manage culture, challenge thinking, improve retention, enrich talent development programs, have more meaningful performance discussions, improve team relationships or dynamics, this is an effective and simple tool you can use today with individuals or groups that doesn't cost a lot.

    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 helped us make sense of the law and put better structure in place. We now have clarity, alignment and more confidence as a management team. 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. Her timely advice and professional expertise helped us avoid an expensive employment contract issue. We would highly recommend Maria and MTReconnect.'

    Leadership Development

    Ciarán Deasy, Financial Controller - 'From the very first management development workshop I attended with Maria on how to manage teams with more success, I learned so much. It was brilliant, I couldn't wait for the next one. She is knowledgeable, inspirational and her sessions are practical, thought provoking and refreshing. She is not the atypical HR Manager you might be used to for all the right reasons.'
