Connecting People
with Purpose

Fostering Individual and Organisational Growth

The desire to be part of something greater, to belong, to add real value is innate within each of us. Every person, in every organisation, has the potential to grow and achieve more.  As traditional ways of working change and ties to the physical office are loosened, maintaining team connections and organizational cohesion demand precise interventions.  Our deeply experienced team of learning and development experts work to uncover the unique challenges and opportunities within each organisation, embracing each individual’s true potential and enabling each person to make meaningful connections and contributions.

For over 15 years, we have been honoured to partner every day with organisations and leaders from the BioPharma, Chemical, Medical Device and Technology worlds.

What we do

Unlock the Greatness in People and Teams

When it comes to ensuring a culture of growth and innovation, in workplaces that feel safe and inclusive, no one programme fits all. We have spent over 15 years creating and delivering unique and high impact programmes that enable talent to connect, perform, develop and achieve.  Our programmes are designed to engage multiple perspectives, enhance communication, and address the needs of all involved, supporting talent development and overall organisational development.

Promoting Inclusive and Inspiring Leadership

Leaders touch the lives of so many people – employees, clients and communities.  And workplace cultures are largely driven by the way leaders behave.  Furthermore, as remote work takes root, many leaders feel the burden of rebuilding connections and engagement to drive greater productivity and an inclusive company culture.  We provide leaders with the space to think deeply about all these challenges, and how they personally show up and interact with the world, to guarantee that each employee feels ownership for the organisation and its vital work.

For a more dynamic, more productive and more inclusive culture.

Elaine Gennery, Director
Our Tools & Interaction Activities

In addition to a wide range of team interaction activities that elicit authentic behaviours and emotions especially during problem solving, we use a broad spectrum of highly validated assessments.  With a comprehensive data set on hard and soft skills, we enable individuals and teams to appreciate what they naturally do best and make effective development decisions for the future. We are a leading provider of Insights Discovery, having supported thousands of individuals, and hundreds of teams, globally across multinational organisations, and locally in Ireland, to achieve greater and more fulfilling performance.  Some popular assessments include:


A memorable model that uses colour to raise self-awareness, helping people understand their style, strengths and value to the team.  Individuals will gain a common language that has wide-ranging benefits, including connecting colleagues across geographical and cultural boundaries and providing a safe platform for feedback conversations.

The Thinking Environment

A philosophy that encourages creativity and innovative problem-solving in teams and organisations.  At the heart of this approach is the need to establish the conditions for the freshest thinking to surface.  The techniques ensure everyone has a voice at the table and wisdom emerges.

EQ-i Measuring Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is critical for building and maintaining positive relationships, resolving conflict and building resilience.  This assessment (individual and 360) is an excellent way to get a picture of how leaders operate emotionally, areas of strength and potential areas for development. And there are many ways to develop EQ competencies.

Clifton Strengths

A strengths based development tool which focuses on illuminating what is ‘right’ with people instead of what is ‘wrong’.  This approach  helps you to chart your course to accomplish great things using the true north of what you naturally do best.
