Coaching & Facilitation for healthier, happier workplaces.
People, Purpose, Planet
Are you looking for ways to enhance your team well-being. Supporting your team to be at their best, in times of change and uncertainty?
Our philosophy at Where The Mind Grows is simple. If your people are thriving, so too can your workplace.
Our motivations are not simply for people health, but planet too.
Nature is a co-facilitator in all that we do, helping your team rewild and explore with coaching & facilitation.
The third sector, charity, voluntary and purpose led businesses we work with, all have one thing in common.
You are doing amazing work for your communities, with epic staff and limited resources. The challenge of this stewardship is that often staff well-being, mental health and risk of burn out becomes an accidental part of the culture. It can feel like there aren't enough hours in the day to change direction and improve wellness.
That's where we come in!
Your values and mission are clear, but there is a gap between truly living them and the pressures of time, resources and expectations to deliver.
Whether it's people, place or nature you serve. Each of these communities themselves are under pressure!
Experiencing their own additional traumas and needs, adding challenges to your workforce.
Your staff force is made up of people that go the extra mile for your customers, clients and service users, driven by high compassion and empathy values. This often is at the expense of their personal well-being. As a result staff are stressed, at risk of burn-out, face compassion fatigue or struggle with changes in culture, that shift team dynamics.
The latest challenges of filling vacancies means your teams face additional pressures, which leads to 'busy culture' and over-worked individuals. People struggle to find balance & prioritise self-care.
It's never too late to change.
We work with organisations of all sizes, to meet you where you are on your well-being journey.
From celebration & recognition, to nurturing resilience and over-coming burnout.
Helping you find purposeful solutions. Listening carefully to your needs, and creating a supportive, impactful and space to forge psychological safety and make a help you make a difference.
