Who we are
Flourishing Minds Consulting is a boutique consulting firm based in Melbourne, Australia. Our primary focus is on helping individuals and organisations to ‘grow’ and flourish through the application of research and findings in the fields of positive psychology, organisational psychology, neuroscience, employee engagement & motivation, psychometric assessment, and performance.
Our ideal clients are organisations who are committed to developing a thriving and engaged workforce through getting the ‘right’ employees in the right roles, and then helping them to become happier, more productive, and more successful.
Given our focus on positive psychology, we particularly enjoy working with individuals, teams, and organisations to identify, explore, and develop existing strengths – rather than always focusing on ‘weaknesses’. We also like working with clients who prefer tailored, ‘high touch’ solutions based on a careful consideration of individual needs and requirements.
In our view, ‘one size fits all’ approaches to designing and delivering organisational development projects and interventions rarely work – particularly if the organisation’s unique culture, strategy and context has not been taken into account.
Our existing clients include a range of organisations from both the public and private sector, and across a range of different industries and sectors. We are happy to work with businesses of all sizes, as well as engaging directly with individuals.
Along with qualifications and experience in Organisational Psychology, we have significant experience in delivering both small and large projects across a range of different organisational environments. As such, we have developed a solid understanding of the common challenges faced by many organisations, including those experienced by business owners, leaders, and HR professionals.
Consequently, our methods and approaches are guided by best practice while also taking practical business requirements and constraints into account. We are based in Melbourne, Australia.
