About Us

OUR EXPERIENCE & QUALIFICATIONS

Flourishing Minds Consulting is a boutique consulting firm based in Melbourne, Australia. Founded by a Masters-qualified business psychologist we help leaders, teams and organisations to build stronger levels of trust, clarity, alignment and human connection. We opened in 2014. 

We often do this by helping leaders and their teams to more effectively navigate those conversations that really matter in the workplace. Other areas of focus include helping organisations or teams to define ways of working or fundamental values and guiding principles. We sometimes build success profiles for key roles or leadership teams, or work with our clients to identify the individual and collective strengths of their people.  

Ultimately, our aim is to help individuals and organisations to ‘grow’ and flourish by creating a workforce that is happier, more engaged and productive, and more likely to 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 Clients

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.

Our Experience

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.

Our People

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.
