We apply our knowledge of human behaviour to real business problems. Our services are always tailored to meet our client’s need however there are some key themes that emerge many times over. Change management, team performance, individual and team resilience and assessment have emerged as some of our most needed services over recent times.
Managing transformation, change and transition
We help organisations “do” change, regardless of where the change is happening. Meg and her collaborators have a track record of transformational, team and project change achievements.
Change to any organisation typically means culture change. Either as a product of a restructure or a change to strategy. We help organisations understand their culture and the symbols, systems and behaviour that need adjusting in order to transform for the future.
We believe teams are the heart of the organisation. We have helped teams navigate through change and challenge through our Strong Teams programs and by focusing on team purpose, team processes and optimising team performance and resilience.
Projects are often the vehicle organisations use to deliver specific transactional change. We partner with organisations to provide project change management services that focus on the adoption and uptake of the change and protecting the benefits of the project. We know the two biggest diluters of benefits realisation are “workarounds” and passive resistance. We incorporate this understanding in to our change management solution design.
Building strong resilient teams
In the face of change and challenge, truly resilient teams maintain and optimise their performance. Research shows that a group of resilient individuals does not necessarily make a resilient team.
Contemporary models of resilience focus on resource acquisition. That is, acquiring internal and external resources to resilient behaviour in both individuals and teams. In a team this looks like a set of positive behaviours that become “the way we do things in our team” when we are faced with difficulty.
Using a series of team and individual assessments, workshops, exercises and plenty of discussion – we help teams access the resources and tackle unhelpful influences that shape their behaviour when the pressure is on.
As no two teams are the same, we naturally tailor our programs to tackle the specific changes and challenges facing each unique team.
Strong Teams through Circus
Building Strong Teams to increase collaboration!
We know Strong Teams can achieve more than a collection of individuals. We know collaboration is vital for team performance, particularly for innovation We know Strong Teams collaborate more than other teams
How do we tap into this thing called collaboration?
We believe there are two important concepts in creating Strong Teams – psychological safety and a strong sense of identity and belonging. Our program tackles both of these by engineering an environment of challenge, novelty and play! Through CIRCUS!

Measurement and Assessment
Assessment has been an important part of some of our best consulting solutions.
When based on strong valid assessments, people and change management solutions are stronger and “stickier”. We offer bespoke assessments alongside well-established, and scientifically validated assessments. Our difference is the extensive debrief and interpretation we provide our clients and participants.
Our bespoke assessment projects have included staff engagement surveys, customer satisfaction surveys, team strength assessments, change readiness assessments, organisation and team culture surveys, and safety culture surveys to name a few.
We are a channel partner for the Revelian suite of psychometric assessments for selection and individual development projects. In addition, we use the Workplace Big 5 personality assessment by Paradigm Labs, and the R@W Toolkit to measure individual, team and leader resilience in the workplace.
