Outcomes When You Partner with Me

  • Positively deviant performance – If we want performance that deviates from the norm, then we need to take action that also deviates from the norm.
  • Staff loyalty and retention – Much like other relationships we value in life, we need to put in effort to keep a long-term relationship healthy, flourishing and irresistible with employees.
  • Strengthened innovation potential – Positive emotions open up the mind to new possibilities. Positive relationships allow people to synergise and co-create new solutions.
  • Inspiring customer service – Those who serve need to be served. Then smiles will be warm and genuine and connections with customers will be enlivening because this is a natural outflow of positive emotions.
  • Sustainable increased productivity – With wise targets, taking care of the high priority needs of employees and building an organisation with a higher purpose, people would want to give their best.

  • Strong interventions influenced by the scientific rigor of positive organisational scholarship as well as Robert Greenleaf’s servant leadership philosophy
  • Research-based solutions
  • World-leading profiling instruments related to positive work culture

Client Experience

Her capacity to develop meaningful and practical workshop sessions from complex and often nebulous concepts was exactly what we needed. This and the fact that she takes care to deepen her personal engagement to whoever she is working with, meant that her work with us felt entirely bespoke, a genuine partnership.
