– OUR EXPERIENCE & QUALIFICATIONS –
Flourishing Minds Consulting is a boutique consulting firm based in Melbourne, Australia. Founded by a Masters-qualified business psychologist, we specialise in supporting organisations and small businesses to build employee and organisational capability, alignment, and engagement.
Put in a different way, we enjoy helping individuals and organisations to ‘grow’ and flourish by creating a workforce that is happier, more engaged and productive, and more likely to reach their potential and deliver positive outcomes. We achieve this through the application of experience, research and findings in the areas of:
- Organisational psychology
- Positive psychology
- Leadership and professional development
- Neuroscience and human cognition
- Employee engagement & motivation
- Talent identification and talent management
- Performance and potential
- Learning agility
Our ideal clients are organisations and businesses who are focused on developing a thriving, capable, and engaged workforce through strenthening capability, increasing engagement and well-being, ensuring organisational alignment, and getting the ‘right’ employees in the right roles. This often involves exploring and considering what success really ‘looks like’ in that organisation’s unique context and environment.
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 appreciate tailored solutions that are based on a careful consideration of individual needs and requirements, and delivered by qualified and experienced business psychologists. 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 have not been taken into account.
Our existing clients include a range of organisations from both the public and private sector, 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.
Leisa Molloy is the founder and Director of Flourishing Minds Consulting, playing a lead role in scoping, designing and delivering the majority of client projects. We work alongside a broader team of qualified Associates when delivering larger projects or completing work that requires diverse expertise. All of our Associates hold appropriate qualifications and have significant expertise and experience in the relevant subject areas. Our focus is always on getting the best result for our clients – as such, we are more than happy to provide referrals to others within our professional networks when appropriate.
