Maeve O’Byrne, MA CEC, PCC (Professional Certified Coach)
Principal, Cumhacht Coaching & Consulting
I'm passionate about helping people excel - I believe we are all here for a purpose, whether it is to teach children to reach, make our community better or to reach out into our World and make it a better place.
When I decided to leave my previous role, a role I'd been in for over 20 years, I faced a crossroads - what next? I was always looking for something new to learn, and about seven years earlier had completed my coaching training which I used when working with staff, volunteers and with a few clients. I worked through a program developed by a colleague in Ireland, The Third Act, spending a lot of time reviewing my values, who I was, what was important to me, and what I now wanted to become! I, if you like, reinvented myself and through that process have found a life that I love - something totally different to what I was doing previously, however still providing service to others.
In my role as coach and consultant I support individuals, leaders and companies who wish to grow and are not afraid to delve deep to bring the best out in themselves, and/or their team. I challenge them to think big, not in the box, or outside but into the future and imagine possibilities.
My background is varied, and having worked in different parts of the World I believe I have a unique perspective on people and the values that drive them. I love connecting people and partners, and I have an appreciation for and of international culture and diversity after living and working in the Middle East, Switzerland, UK, Ireland and Canada.
I provide leadership coaching and consulting services to business, individuals, non-profit and Indigenous groups on Vancouver Island and around the Country. I understand that each client is unique and from time to time may suggest, with a client’s permission, to call upon other professionals to consult with them.
My training and experience also allows me to provide support to a number of local and international organizations on a pro-bono basis, which also feeds my soul and satisfies the call of being of service to those who have lost, or need a voice.
For many of my individual clients we are looking at the 'what next' part of their lives. Like me they are looking for more, but are not sure what? We look at this next stage in their evolution, this Third Act, which could be up to a third of their life and we examine where they are right now, what brought them here, and where do they want to go.
What do you want to do with the rest of your life? Allow me the honour of helping you discover what next!
