...because for many of us, work is entwined with our identity. ...however, work is a collective act, making cooperation crucial for success. ...but we receive little guidance or education in cooperation, resulting in workplace friction and factions.
...we work with business leaders to craft workplaces that encourage cooperation and reduce friction. ...we give their colleagues all the tools, information and support they need to take advantage of the environment for both personal and collective success.
...by offering new perspectives and process options. ...by creating bespoke workshops and interventions to reshape culture and operations towards ingenuity and connection.
The unconventional approach that Melanie employs is just that, unconventional, but is actually very logical and quite obvious. As she says - it's informed by science. From how endorphins affect how we function as mammals to how we react as humans when we are threatened. All of this may seem anecdotal, but if understood, will assist greatly in achieving required outcomes within an organisation. Let's face it, organisations are made up of people, and what Melanie made clear to me is that as a manager, one needs to really tune into the needs of the people that one works with in order to achieve the outcomes the organisation requires.

scale-ability, and specifically Melanie, is a "big picture" thinker with deeply practical tools to reveal our full potential, our future landscape. She's inspiring and challenging and more especially, makes it easy to ask oneself the most complex questions about our future direction and growth.
CEO | Creative Director - 360 Degrees
Melanie provided us with a strategic review of our Association's positioning and offering to our members. We approached her specifically for her strategic, creative and out-of-the-box thinking. After a single focus session we left with new ideas including practical and implementable plans to cater to our target audience. Thank you, Melanie.
Executive Director, Manufacturing Circle
Working with Melanie has been an absolute pleasure. Her energy is infectious and she has driven our marketing and branding initiative not only co-ordinating us (no small task) but also other service providers that she has recommended. We are thrilled with the results and look forward to working with Melanie in the future.
Director - Quiver Tree Capital
I'm driven by human energy. Seeing people prosper and become better versions of themselves is what fuels me. This is the ethos I would like to impart to business leaders - to build better working relationships with their employees. Motho ke motho ka batho ( I am because you are). Let us help you transform the impossible.
I believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to flourish - especially you, and especially now. So I either spend my time in organisations helping people bring meaning, motivation and excellence to their work, or voraciously researching new ways to do so.
I work to see people being successful and reaching their full potential. Key to people being the best version of themselves is their ability to build positive work relationships, a clear understanding of what they need to do, and having ownership and responsibility. In helping people grow in these areas I focus on providing structure and building competence.
flourish - verb - flour·ish \ ˈflər-ish , ˈflə-rish \ to achieve success : prosper : to be in a state of activity or production : to reach a height of influence
