Our Valued Clients

Our Story

Managing people is hard at the best of times. But when you throw in staff turnover, absenteeism, burnout and team conflict, it becomes exponentially more challenging.

With a combined 60 years in HR, Training & Development, we know the challenge of trying to manage workplace dynamics while also trying to hit business targets.

We understand what it’s like to be willing—and wanting—to invest in your people but not knowing what you should do about it.

Came across grounded, professional and I felt that Susan was deeply committed to her cause

Susan’s EI enhancement program is extremely valuable in terms of personal development . It exposes you & makes you vulnerable & that’s the first step to setting you on a course of improving your behavioural responses . Better communication in relationships is the outcome & isn’t that a worthy pursuit 😊👍great program - Mike from compass

I recently completed the Emotional Intelligence Ignite course. It has been some time since I have done some growth/up-skill training and I absolutely loved it! I gained so much. The course was very different to anything I have participated in before which I really enjoyed. Susan and Ros were amazing facilitors. I can't recommend enough. Thank you Susan, Ros and the entire group. An awesome experience.Leasa Harris
