We support and advise people within large organisations that need to make big changes, often in complex circumstances and environments.
Using a solid theoretical framework that doesn’t overcomplicate or intimidate, we’ll explore why change is needed, what that change might look and feel like, how we’ll achieve it, and what life will be like once it happens.
We’re collaborators not coaches, standing shoulder to shoulder with you and your staff in real time, to make a real difference. When change comes willingly from within, rather than being imposed from outside, it’s much more likely to last.
We facilitate open, honest conversations and transparent working practises and environments. We’re impartial, we’re great listeners and we don’t take sides or talk behind anyone's back.
Our work is novel and challenging, because if a conversation is hard, it’s usually one worth having. Signing up for the journey with Thrive takes courage, but the results speak for themselves.
We bring about change for companies experiencing a wide range of challenges. If the following sounds like you, get in touch to discuss how Thrive could help.

Thrive is Lynne Wardle and Richard Hewitt.
Through varied careers, we’ve learned what makes for good work and good leadership. And what doesn’t.
Lynne kicked-off her career in the private sector, working in strategy and innovation in financial services, retail and consultancy. Richard spent two decades in the British Army, ultimately as commanding officer of an elite parachute regiment.
We’ve been working together at Thrive for over a decade, and though we bring very different skills to our roles in supporting people through big changes, we share a common interest in exploring unconventional approaches to coping with uncertainty and adversity in the workplace.
Together at Thrive, we lead breakthrough place-based programmes that help public sector leaders rethink how they operate and collaborate, to get the best from their teams and the best outcomes for the communities they serve.
We also help people find new ways of engaging with and relating to each other in the workplace, shaping strategies and services, allowing teams to creatively transform their organisations from the inside out.
