Engaged employees who feel valued and able to contribute are essential to organisational success. However current research shows that 70% of employees are disengaged at work* and this is because they don’t feel valued. Our bespoke programs are designed to give leaders the insight and learning experiences that will turn this situation around. When you invest effectively in developing your people, they feel valued and able to contribute more, growing in their career and aspirations; and adding the agility, innovation and collaboration that enables the organisation to move forward.

About Mary Saunders.

Working with Mary is a powerfully transformative experience. This is because of her personal insight and experience and the engaging, interactive process she’s developed for understanding how people think, feel and behave – the Sagacious model.

At the heart of the model is the ethos from which SAGE INSIGHTS takes its name.
Sagacious means ‘full of wisdom’. The wisdom that arises when individuals and teams go deeper in self-knowledge and understanding of others to gain transformative clarity.

The Bee represents the way in which Mary lightly and skilfully moves amongst people and concepts. The buzz of energetic questioning and activity brings different perspectives to light. Initiating connection, influencing and cross-pollinating ideas, the Bee’s activity delivers the nectar of positivity, nourishment and wisdom that helps people move forward.

For over 25 years this unique ethos has proven remarkably effective in developing the insights and understanding needed to create change for individuals, teams and leaders. The Sagacious model and suite of accessible, creative, customised tools is based on a combination of leading behavioural science, research, and Mary’s experience as a highly regarded international educator and facilitator.
