About Us


We teach people how to thrive

We are a small company in Sydney, working closely with organisations, colleges/universities, and individuals wherever they may be, to increase their resilience, confidence, and all-over wellbeing.

We love what we do, and we have a “healthy obsession” about our goals and yours. We draw on the expertise and knowledge of many other talented specialists to develop programmes we’re proud to deliver.

What Inspires Us


What inspires us to put our feet on the ground every day?

The what

Our programmes are inspired by our deep commitment for a positive and resilient world, where individuals and organisations thrive and achieve the results they want.

 

The how

Our inspiration dictates who we work with, the efficacy of the products/services we develop and deliver, our values, and our overall sense of purpose.

 

The result

Our focus on outcomes, combined with our desire to deliver a great learning experience, means you’ll be immersed in a learning journey that, once applied, will have you kicking any goals you set. You’ll be thriving.

What We Do


What exactly do we do?

What We Do


What exactly do we do?

We deliver education to increase the resilience and overall wellbeing of individuals:

  • within the organisational setting, and
  • outside the organisational setting.

Our programmes are underpinned by scientific research. They’re continually updated with the latest research.

We’re driven by what we do and we love nothing more than seeing an individual or a team breakthrough the barriers that may be holding them back.

Resilience. It is at the core of change. And change is a constant. Without resilience, we can’t thrive.

The way we think, feel and respond to these constant changes can have a profound impact on our success and wellbeing.

We all know that today's world is changing faster than ever. Organisations complete one business review, only to start the next one almost immediately. Individuals can't control many of these decisions, but they can learn to build strong psychological foundations to cope with these decisions. And not just cope and survive, but to thrive.

Away from the organisational setting, individuals have personal pressures that come with them to the office each day. High work ethics and good intentions will only add a further layer of stress as they try to do their best under mounting emotional pressure. 

 

Our training programmes

We have two programmes currently available to our market, with several others in development.

The Thrive Programme is designed to foster a thriving organisation. It is delivered face-to-face to small groups of individuals within the organisational setting. When employees are thriving, so too will the teams and organisations they work within. The Thrive Programme can also be delivered as 1:1 executive coaching.

The Resilient Student is an online programme designed for the adult learner about to undertake tertiary (vocational or university) studies. Juggling study with part-time work, family commitments, and simply living life, can be stressful. The Resilient Student will prepare you to tackle any hurdles, achieve your educational goals, and get on with whatever’s next.

Michelle Carlyle

MBA, GAICD, FAIM, Licensed Thrive Consultant

I’ve enjoyed 25+ years in large, global organisations with the majority of that time in senior leadership positions. That practical experience, combined with an MBA, and a thirsty mind (interpret that as an enormous amount of time spent devouring business and science texts with coffee in hand) finds me here, in my “sweet spot”. 

I’m passionate about education and how it has the ability to change lives, and have spent over ten years developing educational products/services for the tertiary sector. And I’ve always been curious about people. What makes them tick? How can some people grow from setbacks while others falter? 

When I’m not in the world of business and people, I enjoy the great outdoors. A bit of a cliche but nonetheless true. My husband and I have cycled from Barcelona to Rome, cycled the Camino De Santiago in Spain, walked the Larapinta trail end-to-end, kayaked 111 kms from Windsor to Brooklyn overnight, and completed marathons, as well as triathlons.

SHARON MCGann

B.Bus, M.Ed (Adult Ed), Licensed Thrive Consultant

I've enjoyed a varied career from Air Force Officer, to National Training Manager in financial services, to running my own small consultancy.  I am passionate about people development, how to connect people with great ideas and support colleagues to enable them to develop their talent into strengths. I'm also interested in how we create a more connected society through collaborations between the education, business and not for profit sectors.

I'm endlessly interested in the mind, body, emotional connection.  I like to stretch myself physically through triathlons, running, cycling, hiking and swimming. I'm an absolute believer in the restorative power of nature so it's always a good day when I've had a chance to be in nature and if I've connected with someone at the same time, the benefit is enhanced.

OUR VALUES

We Listen Intently to our Clients
We will be intently listening to every conversation we have with you regardless of whether it’s over a coffee or a device. We’ll ask you questions until we’ve reached a clear understanding of what you want to achieve. Don’t worry, it won’t be an inquisition.

We act with Integrity and Honesty
We will always bring honesty, accuracy, clarity, and fairness into all interactions we have and commitments we make. We will call out any problems we see that might impact your objectives/goals.

We work to Live
We believe in balance - life balance. When we have a deadline, it’s all guns blazing. When we can take a break, it’s all about inspiring conversations (with a good glass of red) that refuels our energy tanks with new ideas. 

We deliver results with a Determined head and a Passionate heart
We love what we’re doing and can’t think of anything else we’d rather do (apart from cycling in Italy). 
We have a strong focus on results, mixed heavily with honest and solid relationships.

We are Lifelong Learners
We know we’re not perfect and that learning never stops. We’re always reading new research material, and meeting with the best and most respected experts in the world.
