About Us

“A Team is not a group of people that work together. A team is a group of people that trust each other.”

Kasia Murphy

Kasia Murphy

Founder and Director

I am  a Business Psychologist who has worked with various organisations, designing and delivering bespoke research-based consulting, leadership development and one-to-one coaching.

My expertise lies within using psychology for effective communication, employee engagement, servant leadership, emotional intelligence and employee well-being. My greatest skill is my knowledge of human psychology and its application in the business environment.

I strongly believe in coaching as management style which enhances performance.

I am proud to have experienced all of the joys and challenges of starting, growing and expanding my own business: I founded my own Language Centre, and led a team of 30 staff for over 10 years, growing it to five locations nationwide, with over 800 students, while also teaching at executive level.

Recently, I have been cooperating with John Lewis in Milton Keynes providing site-wide research on Work-Life Balance and Organisational Commitment (there were 500 participants) resulting in creating more engaged and fulfilling workplace.

I  strongly believe in developing leaders in order to fully unlock the potential of every employee.

Mike’s leadership skills and knowledge are grounded in an 18-year career in the British Army where he served six tours of Afghanistan and Iraq, leading troops on the front line in areas and situations of extreme hostility. Knowing how to build the psychological safety and trust required to survive these scenarios led Mike to go on and be invited to teach the next generation of Officer-level military leadership at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst.

These experiences, accompanied by a Masters in Occupational Psychology, have given Mike an exceptional background in leadership and creating the right cultural environments for people, teams and organisations to thrive.

With a deep interest in WHY people follow others to perform optimally, Mike is passionate about helping create the right environment for leaders and teams to be successful.

Today he works with teams across sports and business to encourage, develop and drive the capability of each team member to achieve their potential in service of wider organisational goals.

JOHN LEWIS & PARTNERS

“Since establishing her own company, Kasia has worked alongside John Lewis conducting a site-wide work/life balance survey, covering a large group of operational Partners at our flagship Distribution Centre in Milton Keynes.  From the outset, Kasia has exceeded our expectations, delivering a suite of results which have provided an impressive insight into our working culture here at Magna Park.  Kasia was diligent and professional throughout the project, which proved thorough and comprehensive in content.  I would not hesitate in recommending Kasia to any forward-thinking organisations wishing to further explore their working environment.”

John Munnelly, Head of Operations

TRIMANUAL and GREENLIGHT PT

“Kasia was great in helping me launch my latest project. Without her, there’s no way I’d have got all the work done in the deadlines that I set myself. She was excellent in helping me get my thoughts nice and clear on paper, and then also setting deadlines and having some accountability towards finishing the project. It was excellent. Sometimes, as a self-employed person that can be quite difficult to do, so having someone to bounce ideas off, structure my thoughts, and actually put them into action was everything that I needed. Thanks Kasia!”

Adam Gibson, Owner and Head Coach

3M Corporate Security

“I recently had the good fortune to work with Kasia on a need to improve my own work habits.  I felt my daily routine needed improvement to improve productivity, but I was unable to effectively identify and correct the problem myself.  After just one session with Kasia, I was able to make a change in one critical work habit that had a significant effect upon my workday.  Kasia did not do this through lectures or motivational sermons.  Instead she worked with me in a manner that made it seem as though I had discovered the problem myself and designed the solution.  Yet, without her engagement with me it never would have happened.  Kasia is nonjudgmental, enthusiastic, insightful, and very pleasant to work with.  Any time spent working with her will be productive, enjoyable and time well spent.”

“I really enjoyed the coaching experience with Kasia. It was a great opportunity to take a pause, step back and  reflect deeper about the matter itself and my internal motives and feelings. The theoretical background and explanations provided by Kasia helped me  realize the mechanisms of my behaviour and consequences which they cause. I felt perfectly understood by my coach. Now it is my task to work at improvements, using the outcome of the coaching sessions.”
