As a Business Psychologist, I love to help solve people problems – the messy ones. The ones I am privileged to investigate in organisations are almost invariably complex or ‘wicked’ in some way: those with competing tensions and require layers of fixing.
Hello World. I’m Kelly and I help leaders, managers and HR to really understand and solve their workforce problems. Defining the problem is a stage that’s often skipped over in the rush to a fix. I’m a business psychologist – I know you have sat in meetings, attended workshops or agreed actions that just don’t fit with what you privately think is going on. It’s painful when you’ve invested heavily in action to then find the problem still unresolved.
Why me? How we feel about work really matters. I believe we all want to be valued, to contribute, to grow, to connect with our tribe. We are social animals. We help make a happier, productive and more meaningful experience. In all the work I do, I help people to connect with each other. I founded Talent Glue to help people to get unstuck and get going again, together.

Uncertainty will always make change messy. Focusing people on the future goals is arguably the manager’s most valuable role in making change stick.
