aLEX Kotsos (above) is using positive psychology to help her corporate clients excel - and its working.

The 38-year-old self-starter established Strengthscope Ireland over two years ago and in a short time has pulled in some very big names.

"I have contracts with the Irish Sports Council and Microsoft, among other large companies," she told the Herald.

"For a one-man band I think things are going really well," she joked.

But the Dublin-based entrepreneur is confident that she is the best at what she does.

"Lots of people do what I do but I use occupational positive psychology," she noted.

This unique approach, Alex explained, gets people to the top of their game by focusing on their strengths.

But the businesswoman has a stake in another successful firm. Mumager is focused on getting women back to work with confidence and helping working mums excel without feeling guilty. The team also provide workshops for employers who want to improve the culture for working mothers.

When starting up Strengthscope Ireland Alex Kotsos approached Inner City Enterprises (ICE), a charity organisation helping businesses based in the capital by providing both mentoring services and low cost finance.
