Our Mission

We believe in a world where everyone has the right to live their most meaningful life. We're on a mission to connect people to their purpose! 

Uncovering what makes for a meaningful life is an ongoing journey - one that, as research shows, reaps the benefits of greater life satisfaction, increased engagement in work, greater health outcomes, and higher levels of hope, optimism and flourishing, known for its benefits in combating stress, anxiety and depression.  

The Posify Group work with schools, workplaces and individuals to share evidence-based knowledge and skills that connect people to their purpose. We believe that crafting a meaningful life is not only possible but necessary for our individual wellbeing and the wellbeing of our world. A powerful ripple effect occurs when a single person within a community commits to a positive change toward their purpose. We’ve personally experienced this ripple effect and seek ways to move the ripple into a wave that changes the lives of many.

For Schools:

When a whole system is flourishing, everyone within it is best positioned to thrive. We work across three main group in schools: students, staff and parents. Our work with students includes delivery of The Purpose Passport, our immersive career development program for secondary students, and our Purposeful Leadership experiential learning programs and workshops. We also offer a NESA endorsed “Introduction to Positive Education” for teachers, support staff and parents, and a range of additional workshops and tailored programs to support school communities flourish. For more information on how we bring purpose to schools, including staff Professional Development and parent sessions, click here.

For Workplaces:

We offer workshops and consulting to workplaces keen to join the purpose revolution and attract the best emerging talent. Our next generation want to work for companies that make an impact. We help companies identify their unique purpose profile, and curate in-house learning and professional development programs that support the purpose driven goals of bright minds, fostering workplace wellbeing and increasing productivity amongst staff along the way. Click here for more information on our Workplace programs and services.

For Individuals:

Whether it be navigating the teenage years, moving on from school days into adulthood, changing jobs or exploring a new purpose-journey, life transitions can be difficult to navigate. For individuals considering how to bring more meaning to their lives, our face to face and online coaching provides the space to uncover practical skills that connect people to their purpose. Face to face coaching is available in the Port Macquarie area. Online coaching is accessible from any area, with the provision of a good internet connection and access to video calling (Skype or other). For more information or to make a booking, click here.
