    Strengths Profiling and Coaching

    Mission: Empower + Develop + Career Success

    We develop leaders that are more self aware, agile and drive their own career success in your business using a scientifically proven strengths profile tool to support bespoke individual and/ or team coaching programs.


    Strengths profiling is a short online assessment that an individual or team can take to produce a holistic profile of their strengths and weaknesses. Ideal for those who want to use strengths towards achievement of goals and better performance. It also helps create a common language that is spoken and understood by those that use it in a business. It can support recruitment and retention practices, talent development programs, powerful performance discussions and improve team relationships and dynamics in a changing business.

  • Who We Are

    Leadership is Not Wielding Authority - It is Empowering People - Becky Brodin

    Maria Treacy

    HR Consultant and Strengths Coach

    With over 16 years professional senior HR experience across various industry, Maria understands business, how it works and the challenges that co-exist with money, technology and people. 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 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 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 Coaching

    Sally Anne Quirke, Owner - 'Maria has a gift. I found her leadership coaching style calming and future focused, I left Maria feeling more confident and clear. She takes you on a journey and enables you to gain clarity and take action around what's right for you and your business. Thank you Maria.'

    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.'
