Creator of The Prosperous Mind, Leader and Workplace
On the eve of my 40th birthday, I did NOT have a “prosperous” mind. I hated my profession and my life. However most people would have assumed I had it all. I was at the pinnacle of my career, recently married, renovating our dream home and had come to the end of long journey to become a Mum. What went wrong? Perhaps it was the daily IVF injections and treatments (not successful) followed by an even more invasive international adoption process, while in a high-pressure job that weighed on me and my marriage. Perhaps it was just me, and my inability to manage day to day life. What I did know, is bringing an already traumatised child into a marriage in trouble was a bad idea. In leaving my marriage, I also closed the door on being a parent.
I was suddenly faced with questions such as “What am I going to do with my time and life it is isn’t being a parent?” and “What will be my contribution or legacy if it isn’t through raising children?”. Let’s also remember I hated my work. So one could argue I was having a mid-life crisis!
Life had to change. I had to change. More about that here About Us
My hope is to help as many people I can make the changes they need to reach their potential, leading to Prosperous Minds, Leaders and Workplaces.
The Prosperous Mind, Leader and Workplace is based on my personal experiences, my Dissertation research, and what I know works!
The Prosperous Mind, Leader and Workplace
Gets Proven Results
The Prosperous Mind, Leader & Workplace is an opportunity to understand and explore what holds us back from pursuing important work and life goals, including how gender can influence goal success, and new strategies to get there.
The Prosperous Mind, Leader & Workplace offers a commercial and psychological lens regarding individual and team pursuits that are tailored for individuals and organisations including the practise of evidence-based skills to achieve more. The Prosperous Mind, Leader & Workplace is delivered through tailored programs for Leaders and their teams.
Who is The Prosperous Mind, Leader & Workplace for?
- Leaders and or teams in trouble, stressed and not performing
- HR and CEO’s needing to improve Leadership capability that can be sustained
- HR Leaders needing to Problematic Leadership styles negatively impacting individuals and teams
- Organisations experiencing extended or unexpected change
- Board or Executive team requiring skills on how to build greater peer-to-peer trust that is felt company wide
- Individual or teams that appear to be “stuck” in a cycle, resulting in conflict, procrastination and a lack of commitment which is negatively impacting performance.
Case Example: There are good people in this organisation, but it is becoming obvious through certain behaviours (procrastination, lateness, increased absenteeism, defensiveness and aggressive behaviour) may be the result of poor stress management, and a lack of confidence and ability to have difficult conversations. This is also leading to unwanted resignations. Recent 360 and climate surveys has confirmed Leaders and their people are not communicating, experiencing high levels of stress and do not feel appreciated for their work. They have tried a variety of different incentive schemes, fun and interactive team building activities and flexible work, yet these don’t appear to have made much change. The Executive team and HR are frustrated as they believe they largely have the right people and want to support them.
This organisation implemented The Prosperous Mind, Leader and Workplace framework and over 12 months we had a positive shift in individual 360 feedback loops, stopped 3 resignations of people the organisation valued, and trust scores amongst 3 teams, including the Executive Leadership team increased significantly which opened the door to have difficult conversations.
These are some of the results:

Practical and Relevant (The Prosperous Mind)
All the content was explained and communicated well and I look forward to see any changes over the coming 12 months
I think given the sensitive / personal nature of the session, I believe that it was conducted in a way that made people feel comfortable and able to openly express themselves
Margie was able to bring fun to the room which makes it easier to raise difficult topics
The workshop was interactive and open
Everyone got involved in the workshop (The Prosperous Mind) and voiced their opinions
I most enjoyed the awareness (The Prosperous Mind) has given me about many aspects of the work-life balance and the challenges I face on a daily basis.
