We can, and should, stack the odds of positive outcomes in our favor. The Knowledge exists to impact environmental and interior design, staff behaviours, and leadership styles, leading to; improved health, improved efficiency, increased staff retention, higher customer satisfaction, inclusivity and accessibility.
We have spent years studying research into how wellbeing, stress, creativity, orientation and positive identity are influenced by the behavioral and physical environment.
This has resulted in the development of a new form of consultancy and training that can have a transformational effect on team and management culture, as well as give clear methodology to inform master planning and interior design to positively boost wellbeing, quality of life and daily experiences.
