About Evolution Consulting

Here’s 3 things you need to know about me, Irial, founder of Evolution Consulting:

  1. I’m fascinated by what makes people tick
  2. I have a very high aptitude for abstract reasoning
  3. I love learning

Okaaay, I can hear seeping through your brain.  Why I am sharing this with you?  I’m sharing it because, if you’re a manager, leader, or business owner, you’ll want the outcome of those inputs.

Understanding what makes people tick and how they show up in the workplace has a direct impact on the bottom line.  But its not just about understanding the people; its about understanding them with the organisational system they’re working in.  By correctly identifying whether it is the system or the individual ensures you maximise your return from your investment.  Irial’s deep experience of how to effect change has resulted in her becoming the first Accredited Master in Change Management in Ireland.


Here’s some examples of clients we’ve helped:

Client 1: A 2-hour coaching session, focused on what was stopping the MD from working on, rather than in, the business resulted in a new employee being hired and a new product brought to market. 

Client 2: Defined their business values and  actively used them to recruit new employees. 

Client 3: Designed and delivered a leadership programme, which helped several Team Leaders to accept historical changes that they had continued to resist, completely changing the dynamic and energy within the organisation.

Some organisations are in a lot of pain and its just not bearable anymore.  Other organisations are doing well and want to push on to even better.  Either way, we work with our clients, to surface the unhelpful dynamics, detect the sources, design bespoke solutions and guide their implementation.

Sources of unhelpful dynamics can be located in Strategy, Structure, Culture or Capability.  Sometimes it’s clear cut.  Sometimes, its a combination of different sources resulting in the unhelpful dynamics.  Together, we clarify the sources and agree a plan of action.  All the time, we guide you through the rollercoaster of change.

We have also designed online training courses that allow you, or your managers, to start developing or enhancing leadership and management skills today.  Go to Courses to explore our courses.
