What our clients say about Mindset

Shaun Butler
General Manager APAC
SYSPRO Software

I would highly recommend the entire Mindset team. My professional association with them goes back many years and during that time Don Holley has personally assisted with recruitment of key staff, talent mapping and general business transformation. The Mindset Group embodies a professional approach and a genuine interest in improving your bottom line via process improvements. If you need to change and improve your company's mindset; Don is your man.

Mindset worked with me and my leadership teams several times over the last 5+ years. Through interactive team and individual engagement, the team came to a much better understanding of both their capabilities and future directions. Capability gaps were identified, and then addressed through development and recruitment. Mindset then worked with the team to accelerate their development as a high performing group.

Westmead Medical Research Foundation

Mindset have made a significant contribution to my leadership team in improving communication, performance and accountability of the team. Mindset’s business methodology combined with outstanding facilitation skills creates a very powerful recipe for delivering an effective leadership transformational program.

Mindset has helped me refocus the business model of the Foundation, by creating a simple performance management platform which brought great clarity and transparency to the role and agreed deliverables of each member of my executive team. The Mindset team is very dedicated to achieving results for their clients and have very high standard of ethics. Don is a charismatic leader in his field and focuses on delivering clear outcomes for the organisation that he chooses to work with.

I would highly recommend him and his firm if you are looking for a consultant to help you get the best out of your team. Creating clarity, accountability and value add is the mantra of many human resource consultancies. Don and Mindset have a solid track record in delivering on these attributes and creating a real tangible difference for their clients.

Zena Boakes

Mindset has the ability to gain an in-depth understanding of any business, and deliver both strategic and operational results. They are skilled at building valuable relationships with all stakeholders, and are able to negotiate, influence and coach managers up to the most senior levels. They consistently demonstrate the highest standards of professional integrity and excellence. A pleasure to deal with!

Don and I were co-presenters at the SSON workshop in Melbourne in April 2012. We presented on Change Management and during that preparation period and in several meetings after that, I have valued Don's ideas and practical solutions in managing change in a rapidly changing business environment. In particular he has provided me with some valuable inputs in better managing change in a shared service function.

Aaron helped us implement a new performance management system into our business in a relevant, cost effective and timely manner. He delivered as promised in a professional manner, and was prepared to offer additional advice and guidance at no extra cost.

Michael Lifson
Experienced Technology and Business Executive & Non-Executive Director (GAICD)

Suzanne was a great consultant and facilitator for team workshops we held as part of a re-organization. She designed and facilitated workshops for several teams in my function and I received positive feedback from the individuals involved. The collation and integration of output was excellent as was my debrief.

I re-engaged Suzanne, this time to facilitate workshops related to role structure and clarity. Her suggested approach worked well and I again received positive feedback on Suzanne from workshop attendees.

Suzanne is easy to work with, has great ideas and nothing is too much trouble.

Senior Lecturer Corporate Education and Leadership
Anglia Ruskin University

As part of a major project to implement an online Performance Management System,Dale Whitton was engaged to standardise all position descriptions and performance indicators across our teams of professional engineers and scientists. It was a challenging assignment, working across all eastern seaboard offices with some difficult practical issues to overcome. However, Dale approached the project with professionalism and good humour. Communication in regard to project milestones and achievements was always well executed and engagement with the HR team was at once friendly, effective and efficient.

Dale was also involved in other projects such as talent mapping and specialist recruitment and selection. At all times Dale approached his work with us in a methodical and capable manner. I would not hesitate to engage Dale and Mindset for any strategic HR venture.

After just a few months working with Mindset we are already seeing positive changes. We are measuring our people and their performance more effectively and improving communications and accountability at all levels. Working closely with Mindset has enabled us to reduce our time-to-hire, and their selection tools have helped us improve the quality of our new employees and reduce staff turnover.

Callum Davidson

Mindset were able to join us at short notice to initiate the change and communications streams of the project. This helped us fill a gap until we could secure ongoing project resources. Mindset were able to understand our business, our change program and our challenges very quickly and use that knowledge and experience to add real value to the project. Thanks again I look forward to working with Mindset again in the future.
