OUR STORY

The world of work has changed beyond recognition, it's time for a significant shift

Brave Moves

Workplace change has been driven by multiple factors including the rise of the digital age, globalisation, the promotion of diversity in the workplace, and shifting expectations of both employers and employees around the ways in which they work. Whilst some organisations and their people have thrived despite these changes, others have found it more challenging to adapt, which has often been accompanied by a rise in employee burnout (now recognised by the World Health Organisation as an "occupational phenomenon”). In our work within Psychology & Coaching we saw many talented people and good organisations who were wrestling with these types of sticky problems. 

As we transition into a post-pandemic world, these experiences have prompted both organisations and employees to re-evaluate their work practices. There is a new focus on achieving more agile behaviours and different perspectives on the way that work and broader life blend together. We chose to use 'Brave Move' in our business name as we believe that the liminal space between what has been and what is next is pure gold. We seek to work with and for individuals and organisations who are bold enough to explore new possibilities, co-creating solutions which address both individual and organisational factors in the pursuit of Healthy High Performance.  Partner with us to build another way!
