Welcome to our learning
experience platform

You're in good company.

We live in exciting and challenging times. Technology is making our world smaller and more connected, but also more complicated.

As markets evolve and the nature of work changes, the skills needed to sustain growth in the 21st century are changing too.

To remain competitive in the workplace we must continue to learn & develop a culture of learners across every area of the business.

So keep an eye out here for internal gigs that might take your fancy. We’re proud to say that we’ve been able to provide awesome career progression for many of our emerging leaders; we’ve had people move job roles, states and even countries to help us expand.

THE WorkPLACE is changing

Old school thinking purports that we experience three life stages:

1) Learning – something we do in school in order to get a job

2) Work – hopefully something we enjoy doing

3) Retirement – where we enjoy the fruits of our labour.

However most of us know that it’s rarely this simple or straightforward these days. There’s a lot of hype around the acceleration of job changes particularly among younger generations – the US Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests people change jobs 11.9 times in their lifetime, Australia is not dissimilar – supplementing this info with an average tenure of 3.3 years. However it’s worth noting that the outliers in these studies (27% of respondents were prone to job hop) pushed the numbers up whilst a steady group (10% +/- ) held only 0-4 jobs with everyone else falling in between.

Which if you think about it, makes sense and isn’t that different to previous generations. But the world is changing fast and the need to keep your skills updated is still more important than ever. Plus the rise of contract work also complicates the picture as more people handle portfolio careers or pitch a side hustle as the norm. It’s also likely that with economic pressures and an ageing population – retirement for most of us won’t kick in until 70.

So it makes sense that you want to get yourself in a position where you’re doing stuff you enjoy with a company you value. So what does that mean? You’ve got to think about your own work journey and take responsibility for your own learning & experience. You’ve got to act as your own career manager within the business you’re in. You’ve got to ask yourself: how do I best equip myself for the future for an enjoyable and sustaining working life? What kind of skills should I be cultivating? What kinds of behaviours will get me there? How do I even start?

LEARNING WILL CHANGE YOU

The mind that opens up to new ideas, never returns to its original size.

We’re creating a collective of progressive creatively intelligent people who can develop with us as we grow. For indeed the heartland of our growth relies on us developing the most important assets in our business; our people.

We pride ourselves on a grow-your-own people management strategy but as we face bigger and more gnarly challenges in the market here and in the US; the kind of people we need to help us move forward have to be able to push themselves strategically and creatively in order to continue to add more value and progress through the business.

So what does that mean for you? It means you have to keep learning. You have to resist the urge to assume that now that you have a job, that tenure will be enough to ensure successive pay rises and promotions. It won’t.  You, just like us, have to keep learning and changing and moving forward. And by the way, once you get into it, you’ll realise that actually, it’s way more fun than just settling in your day job.

 It’ll spark new connections in your brain, it’ll help you identify new opportunities to contribute and to gain experience, and best of all – it might just develop a new skill or passion in you that you never knew you had.

So for those of you who have just joined us – welcome to the next season of your working life. And for those of you who have been with us while – buck up, it’s about to get real. We’re going to build a collective of engaged, passionate, self learners who create their own opportunities. 

That’s the kind of company we want to be.

The way we work around here

The foundation of this company we’re building is based on the way we behave, the behaviours we practice. So here’s the transformative behaviours built into the DNA of our company. 

Our Transformative Behaviours


These behaviours govern how we approach our work, how we engage with each other and with our clients and suppliers. We think they're one of the driving forces of the success of our people and our business. They're the behaviours that set us apart from all the other companies and we call them transformative because we believe if you practice them, you will transform - your mindset, your skills, your relationships and your life. 

 
 

Ignite the Passion

Passion is that moment before progress - when all you have is that explosive desire to know or to do or to try something new.

Stay Curious

Think big and wide and different. Hate mediocrity. Follow yourself down the rabbit hole.

Imagine

Many strong opinions. Held lightly. We value the changing of minds & the treasure that comes from asking 'What if . . ?'

Be Humble

Overconfidence is a lack of imagination. The inability to see another point of view. Give up your pride but retain your dignity. Humility is everything.

Work in Beta

We ship products, ideas, platforms & training as soon as we're confident they can perform effectively or be useful. Then we collaborate with our clients & our people to iterate and make them even better.

Show Kindness

It costs nothing and it means everything. Sprinkle that shit everywhere.

Making thinking visible

How can the workplace be a place of intellectual stimulation where learning is viewed as a culture, as a way of interacting? How can thinking be made visible in any area, at any level through the use of effective questioning, 'thinking routines' and reflection.

Cultivating a growth mindset

What if we accepted that intelligence is not static and can be developed and increased as we learn? What if we embraced challenges and viewed them as obstacles? What if we didn't have to worry about looking stupid or making mistakes because we understand that they are experiences that deepen our intelligence?

Managing the whole self

What if we decided to reveal more of ourselves at work? What would be possible? How would our workplace be different? What would be the impact on people we work with and lead?

Building stamina for change

In a rapidly changing world the way we work, live, communicate and play is changing at an alarming rate. In fact, the only constant is change. So what is change stamina? What does it look like? How do we build it and why do we need it?
