Human Behaviour

When culture is key.

Successful businesses invest time and money in setting their strategic direction and designing the roles and structures that will position them for performance. In today’s complex and constantly changing climate, it’s a rare leader who hasn’t wondered why these efforts still didn’t deliver the uplift in delivery they’d hoped for.

Johnston & Goldsmith employ a team of psychologists, behavioural and social scientists who are expert in lifting individual and team performance. Our niche interest in the ways that people engage in their work, derive meaning from contribution and ultimately add value in the world, is what sets us apart.
