The Work we Do

Career Relaunch

Returning to work after injury and trauma, or retraining for a new career can be challenging.

Long term work absence, generally has a negative impact on health and wellbeing. A whole-of-person tailored approach provides assistance, based on assessed needs, to achieve meaningful and sustainable employment.
Education and Training

Many employees have been exposed to traumas such as a disaster, accident or assault.

As a manager or leader you will want to understand the impact trauma has on your staff, their health and behaviours, and learn the most effective strategies to support your teams.
Leadership and Change

The Universal Model of Leadership: the new standard for leadership development

Our Universal Model of Leadership is the backbone of our assessment tools, coaching practices, and overall individual and organisational development methodology.
