It’s Time to Fire Negative Thinking
From Your Team

Not only is it boring, it steals your energy, sleep, and time.

It looks like excuses, finger pointing and laziness.

  • People pulling in different directions

  • More energy spent on the politics than the opportunities

  • Everyone misses out

The individual misses out. The team misses out. The world misses out.

What a waste. 

There’s another way.

We’re Top Five Movement…

…and we’ve flipped the script on mindset + resilience training. They don’t call us the most refreshing take on mindset, resilience, leadership and productivity for nothing.

As a team of award-winning mindset coaches and psychologists, we highlight the choice, dismiss the idea of fluffy positive thinking, and get practical. At Top Five we help you develop new perspectives, raise the bar on solutions, and help your team take better care of each other along the way.

We show you and your team how to retrain and rewire your brain on a daily basis.

Clare’s changing the stats around mental health. Clare is a two-time International Coach of the Year finalist who has directed and delivered behaviour change programs for hundreds of organisations.

Dr Shelley Meagher, COO

With experience in founding and leading businesses, Shelley has supported leaders across industries to navigate periods of intense change. She’s fuelled by enabling organisations to generate growth and reduce friction in their business operations.

While Shelley’s title is COO, we can also call her Chief Question Asker, because of her ability to ask the most meaningful questions at the most helpful moments for our team, clients, and community.

Shelley will most often be your first point of contact at Top Five, and clients are quick to comment on Shelley’s energy and fresh perspective.

Shelley’s a magnet for meaningful and impactful work, including past roles such as the founder of a green roofing company (cheekily named Do It on the Roof!) and establishing a leadership program for black and minority ethnic (BAME) leaders stepping into senior leadership roles across industries and across the UK. We’re stoked to have Shelley at Top Five as our COO.

Shelley’s high energy and stories never surprise us. It’s not far-fetched for Shelley to be chatting to a philanthropist about innovative support for Indigenous education while hiking up a mountain while being invited to create another gold standard leadership program in the UK.

What’s in a name?

Our business name came from our movement of generosity that was sparked from a daily little habit called writing a Top Five list. We think this little list is the secret weapon not only for changing our day but actually changing the world.
