Our work with Students
We see how the changing business environment forces organisations to constantly improve their performance. In the most successful ones everyone positively contributes by being proactive, flexible and resourceful when it comes to getting things done. But for this to happen employees need the right attitude and a particular set of practical skills that are rarely taught in content-heavy schools.
The growing gap between what education offers and what the industry needs results in greater youth unemployment and underemployment around the world despite academic achievements. Moreover, without an opportunity for a journey of self-discovery students often make career decisions on the fly or in a ‘go with the flow’ manner creating a depressed workforce that lacks focus and motivation leading to costly absenteeism and high staff turnover.
In an attempt to address this problem holistically and help both sides (education and industry) we started working with students on developing the right mindset and critical workplace skills. The impact it created clearly showed the need to do that on a much larger scale. We have since worked with thousands of students in Australia, Asia and Europe witnessing their personal transformation and professional growth through our Success Skills Program perfected with the feedback from students, parents, teachers, principals, deans and employers, witnessing students successfully deliver industry projects, land well-paying jobs, being complemented for their skills, receive promotions (including overseas assignments) and become entrepreneurs.
Our company was created to help organisations optimise their performance on multiple levels based on best practices developed and tested by us around the world in product development, engineering, science and psychology.
Since 2009 we have been assisting organisations in
Australia, Asia and Europe across various industries including
creative, automotive, manufacturing, primary, applied research, education, business services, life science technology, hospitality, not-for-profit, and local government by providing corporate training, executive coaching and advisory services.
At sti we do things a bit differently — constantly challenging ourselves to tackle difficult projects and paths less travelled.
The more we experience, learn and achieve, the better we are positioned to offer our clients genuine, practical and invaluable insights, a global perspective, unconventional wisdom, smartest tools, best practices from leading global organisations, advanced coaching methods and performance strategies which help professionals and young people achieve success and create a positive change in the world.
