Adeo Consulting are a specialist leadership, emotional intelligence and teamwork training and development consultancy based in Ireland. We have been advising on, designing and implementing tailored programs for clients for 15 years that are contexted, scheduled and located to suit you. We develop leaders, teams, groups and individuals working in the modern organisation. We believe that leadership is first and foremost about connecting with and influencing people, particularly when trust, retention, wellbeing, empowerment and engagement are priorities. Leaders today require Awareness, Authenticity, Emotional Intelligence and a Service Orientation.

We have worked with some of the most senior people in both the public and private sectors, their direct reports and the next level of leadership and teams, in the most challenging of environments. Our experience and understanding of the key competencies, strategy, culture and change allow us to add value to any organisation.


Our signature Authentic Leadership Program developed over the last 15 years helps you create a leadership culture that emphasises trust and engagement by showing leaders and teams how to align key competencies with purpose and strategy.


Using a combination of teaching, coaching and experiential learning we help participants to develop pathways to improve and implement critical soft-skills in themselves that are key to the modern workplace. These skills drive competence and competitiveness in our VUCA environment. Based in Dublin, Ireland we service Irish based and UK based customers and have also worked internationally.


Our first book has now sold in 8 countries.

Leadership Development

The leadership development program we have been teaching and evolving for the last 15 years is current and confidential and tailored to the needs of our clients. Working with leadership teams or individual leaders our leadership development program includes the development of awareness, authenticity and emotional intelligence as well as a number of other competencies such as how to motivate others, driving high performance teamwork and leading through change.

Effective programs must develop the key competencies necessary for leadership development in 2024 and beyond not rehash those from the last century. Unfortunately, according to HBR, many “leadership” programs out there are not developing leaders. We teach leadership rather than management.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence in your leaders, teams and individuals can give you a real competitive advantage through a more engaged workforce and higher performance in terms of success and team goal achievement. Emotional Intelligence is not about being emotional, but of being able to understand your own and others emotions and act accordingly.

Harvard Business Review asks: Are you a great leader or merely a good one? That depends on your emotional intelligence (EI) – and it’s more important than your vision, your toughness, or your industry smarts.


High Performance Teamwork

We have considerable experience with senior (c-suite) and mid level leadership teams in particular where we have developed the leaders AND the team concurrently. Our team development program turns ordinary or blow par teams into High Performance Teams. A high performance team is a group with specific roles and complementary talents and skills, aligned with and committed to a common vision or purpose. The high performance team is almost an organism in itself, with norms, behaviours and expectations of its own.

High Performance Teams consistently show high levels of collaboration and innovation to produce superior results for your organisation.  When Team Emotional Intelligence  is maximized – your key teams can perform up to 25% better than average teams.
