“The way we have always done things, no longer serves us. It’s time to lead the change.”


Transforming Norm is a workplace-based program that creates lasting change across all layers of the organisation through a shared commitment to build a mentally healthy and high performing workplace.

 Working with your organisation, this program delivers sustainable systemic and behavioural change.

The program comprises a consulting and change design program in its initial phase with a comprehensive leadership program – Safe and Effective Leaders – making up the bulk of the program.

The result is a positive and high performing leadership team implementing safe and effective practices within their teams.

Combined with the consulting work and organisational commitment – the overall outcome is a mentally healthy workplace.
