A no-bull approach to the business of workplace wellbeing? You're in the right place.


To change the way we think about wellbeing

If you believe the headlines, business is suffering epidemics of workplace wellbeing shortcomings. Reviews into the failures and scandals in organisations over several decades have too often identified organisational and employee wellbeing shortfalls as leading to those failings. Although widespread and fundamental cultural change is typically prescribed as the remedy, those recommendations seldom address the crux of the matter: the nuanced task of creating thriving workplace wellbeing for sustained improvements in organisational performance.


A blueprint to cultivate a thriving culture

The remedy that works: a step-by-step blueprint for creating a thriving workplace culture. From data analytics and diagnostics to strategic planning and leadership development, from developing a growth climate to creating the conditions in which your people can self-motivate, and from deploying evidence-based programs and resources to embracing continuous quality improvement: I move beyond outdated programs to contemporary and science-based models that are built to sustain change. If you want workplace wellbeing that sticks, then you are in the right place.
