Change is in the Air…
The only thing your team can choose is how they respond to it. Let us help your team make the most of these choices.
Here’s how this can affect your team:
What’s the true cost of letting it unfold like this?
From working with thousands across 40 countries, we know that mindset, resilience and wellbeing are the keys to keeping your staff engaged and performing during these uncertain times.
The better option looks like this:
Because a good leader manages the logistics well. A great leader manages the logistics AND the mindset and wellbeing of their people.

The Change Mindset + Resilience Masterclass Series
Your series of one, three or five masterclasses will help your team go from catastrophising and treading water to solving problems and navigating change successfully.
Because the change is happening. Get your team in the driver’s seat of the routes they can actually influence. It’s the better option.
Your Masterclass Series Includes:
We deliver programs that start with individual change and build to a ripple effect through more courageous and confident leadership. Your program design draws on positive psychology and motivation research and covers:
Mindset + Brain Training
The most instrumental and effective foundation for training our brains and building our motivation. Not that sugar rush of unrealistic motivation that peaks quickly but leaves us exhausted as soon as we’re faced with the daily grind.
Sure we aim to inspire, but what we prefer to do is to skill your team up to drive sustainable change.
The “What Really Mattered” Goals
Employees set goals that focus not only delivering during this time but that they’ll look back proudly on how they showed up with more confidence, clarity and leadership. Following this time of rapid change, these goals allow employees to be more proactive and influential within their current roles and less likely to focus on limitations (their own or the organisation’s) or promotions and pay rises as a key source of fulfilment.
Tackling Overwhelm + Prioritising
Identifying key drivers for “being too busy” and actions to get back in the driver’s seat rather than spiralling into further inner chaos. Includes tips for prioritising, taking out the drama in dealing with tricky stakeholders, and maintaining perspective.
Build a supportive team and redefine what they need for high performance. Hint: it’s not always what they think they need. Get the framework to teach your team how to ask for less, and focus on their true needs. By lifting the quality of communication, you’ll take out the guesswork and easily manage and support your team.
How to take your new mindset, levels of resilience, and ways of thinking to build more connected cultures, raise the bar, see problems differently and bring more value everyday, even during uncertain times. This is where we’ll create a ripple effect and build true leadership.
Are you our kind of leader?
…then you’re our kind of leader and you’re not alone.
When you look back on this time, your team didn’t just cope, you future-proofed your team.
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. Read more about us.

Here’s how their teams say our work helps:
I meet with the best employers in our state and on hearing about Top Five’s influence on the culture of an Employer of Choice across all levels, I wanted to introduce them to other organisations. Their work clearly helped staff to embrace significant change (a merger) and support each other to overcome the workplace challenges, build better relationships with each other and customers.
Top Five’s work brings a unique drawing together of self-care and enabling people to collaboratively build productive mindsets and creating a mentally healthy workplace.
– John Furness, Skills Tasmania, Department of State Growth
We hired Top Five to run a session to set the mindset and engagement of our CEO and executive team before a strategic planning day. The Top Five team was engaging and their ideas were thought-provoking. They not only helped us get the most of our time together as a leadership team but left us with tools that the team felt would help us see opportunities and possibilities amidst complexity and confusion, be less overwhelmed and more mindful of what’s within our control, mentor different thinking in our teams and fuel another step in our positive cultural journey.
I’ve already hired Top Five again to partner with St Luke’s on two high potential leaders programs.
– Barbara Brown, GM People + Culture, St Luke’s Health
Top Five came highly recommended and we liked their easy, friendly and fun approach. The Top Five team has now worked on three engaging, relevant, interesting, and thought provoking projects with our team – opening our global Women in Leadership Forum, running a mindset workshop at our head office and creating an online goal setting and mindset program which we delivered to team members across 40 countries. Their work really hit the mark and translated well globally.
Our team feel like they have tools to help them understand issues through a different lens, create a better work environment for everyone by raising the bar, solve problems they haven’t been able to solve and have clearer perspectives on how to encourage change.
– Natalie Juricic, Global Learning + Development Manager, Intrepid Group
I’ve booked Top Five three times to support my team and a conference that brings leaders in our industry together. After the Top Five workshop our team now have tools to shift their mindset during change from a fear of failure and frustration to feeling empowered, confident and ready to contribute. Any team can benefit from a mindset reboot with Top Five. Clare has a unique talent to make people feel great about themselves and truly build confidence.
Top Five also coached 15 key team members and was key in us being awarded as an Employer of Choice by the Department of Skills and Growth Tasmania.
– Annette Griffin, CEO, Heritage Isle Credit Union (now Police Bank)
I heard Clare speak three years ago and have been using the tools with my teams since to influence culture and support change. I knew we could trust Clare’s practical and thought provoking work on mindset and resilience to help launch our new wellbeing strategy.
Clare was efficient and collaborative to work with and created workshops to help us launch our new wellbeing program. The first workshop booked out within two hours. It was engaging, interactive and timely. Our team rated the likelihood of using the tools day to day in their work 9.26/10! Our second workshop also booked out and provided our teams with tools for less self-doubt, procrastination, self-criticism and second guessing.
As a result of our work together, the GOTAFE teams have new tools to boost morale, increase productivity, reduce stress, empower others, improve communication and help everyone navigate change better.
– Jessica O’Sullivan, Learning + Development, GOTAFE
VicHealth has a strong, positive culture, but we found that some employees were struggling during recent times of change. We recognised it was a great opportunity to help employees build their wellbeing capacity and their mental toolkit for organisational change.
Clare was very insightful as she understood the strengths and challenges of the culture here at VicHealth and proposed a program to meet those challenges. Many of the VicHealth staff commented on Clare’s style, in that she was able to meet people where they were at, taking a real life challenge currently being faced by the organisation, and providing strategies on navigating change constructively. The program Clare created for us has been insightful, relevant, engaging, timely and helpful.
As a result of our work together, our employees have key strategies to help them navigate their work life to thrive in the workplace (especially during changes). VicHealth is an organisation full of passionate and engaged people so it’s wonderful to have tools to further enhance this, support ourselves and each other through periods of change, and continue to enhance our culture and organisation outcomes.
– Dr Lyn Roberts, CEO, VicHealth
We took a workshop with Clare as it helps to know that there are strategies to use when we are faced with challenges and the demands on our time and minds in our industry. Clare was very knowledgeable and calming, and we found the session insightful, helpful, guiding and positive. The workshop gave me and my team a new way of looking at our problems and situations. We now assess situations before we become angry or stressed and try to find encouraging ways of dealing with things.
– Rita Galati, Director, Ray White
Clare’s workshop absolutely left us feeling motivated and energised for the day ahead. We have team members based all over the country so it is important that we use our time together openly and effectively. Engaging our team through a focus on positivity couldn’t have been timed better and allowed us to head into the rest of the day ready for productive problem solving and strategising as a team.
– Josh Levy, Business Development Executive – Education, Apple
I brought Clare in to help build the mindset, resilience and productive thinking of our team.
We provide accommodation and other support services to local people with a disability during a time of intense sector transition. Our staff pour their heart and soul into their work; it is very rewarding but challenging with constant change.
Following Clare’s workshops, our team felt more confident in what they’re capable of achieving, have new tools to strengthen their resilience and practical ideas to keep building a more productive and encouraging culture.
– Monica Provan, CEO, Colac Otway Disability Accommodation Inc. (CODA)
Clare’s keynote presentation on ‘Positive Thinking is Just Not Enough’ perfectly supported our conference theme of Great Partnerships = Great Impact! Clare’s presentation was important for our providers (from various community organisations) who deal with vulnerable clients on a daily basis, to remind themselves about how to care for themselves as well as their clients. Clare came highly recommended to us.
As a speaker, Clare was very organised, on top of things, easy, personable and with her experience supporting people in community roles, understood our brief very quickly. Clare’s presentation and workshop were engaging, positive, active and relatable.
As a result of our work together our NILS community had the opportunity to reflect and refocus. They walked away with tools to support them, their teams and their clients to feel more confident and with a refreshed energy to try things differently.
– Mark Hemetsberger, Head of Communications & Marketing, Good Shepherd Microfinance
Clare has such a different approach and is very engaging as a speaker. You can’t fool my team, and I knew they’d relate to her easy going, straightforward, no nonsense style. Clare has an ability to talk about the tough and raw stuff, rather than glossing over it. She’s easy, patient, approachable, understandable and relatable – both 1:1 and with a group.
My team are tough nuts to crack and, although I hoped they would engage with the program, I was surprised at how openly they embraced it. They have actually taken tools away from it and we have seen positive change. My team now collaborate more, are considerate and respectful towards each other, are more positive, and have tools to help them in the future.
– Meghan Widdowson, TasNetworks
I had been following Clare’s work and wanted to support my team during uncertainty and as we moved into an organisation wide transformation program. Clare understands the role emotions play in how we perform at work well. I wanted to explore this with my team and give us common tools and language to work better together and solve problems, especially while working apart during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Clare was thoughtful and adaptable to our team’s needs and feedback. Her clear and warm presentation of the content worked perfectly for our team’s culture and expectations. The team found the program practical, thought-provoking, enjoyable, timely and accessible. There was something for everyone so team members with different working styles were engaged and benefited. As a leadership team we have new ways of working and our team use the tools regularly.
– Shannon Cheal, CEO, Girl Guides Victoria
Clare came highly recommended by a colleague who had seen the amazing work Clare/Top Five had done with other clients. Clare was so professional and responsive with questions in the lead up and speedy with providing data from the workshop as well as providing free resources for staff afterwards. In her presentation Clare was very engaging and interactive so you felt like you were in the same room even though it was online. Our team found the presentation engaging, interactive and thought provoking.
Hundreds of staff attended and all feedback has been positive and that this resilience and mindset workshop was just what they needed. We also gave every employee a Top Five mindset deck which they are loving. As a result of our work together, our team are more motivated and focused. We’ve not only implemented this new way of thinking into our team catch ups but also into our personal lives.
– Anabel Churkovich, Office to the CEO, Bethany Group
Clare is an engaging professional, she thinks broader than many and considers the lasting impact of the time she spends with you. Clare was effortless to work with, navigating the scoping and delivery phases to work out what was needed and was quick to adapt to meeting timelines, internal nuances and unexpected obstacles. Our team gained practical additions into their individual and collective toolkits for building resilience through change and challenging times. They were left feeling empowered and energised. The program brought instant, impactful and enduring value.
– Janelle Howell, Chief Risk Officer, Advice, AMP
Our committee brings together organisations who are focused on improving the integration of services that respond to family violence. We’d had a tough year and having seen Top Five’s work before, we knew offering a resilience workshop to team members from all of our organisations would be just the ticket. Clare was wonderful to work with – highly professional, knowledgeable, a great communicator – nothing seemed to faze her and everything was ‘can do’.
During the workshop, the team were reflective, optimistic and motivated to try something new. As a result of our work together, our group have new tools for circuit breaking negative feelings, re-energizing and looking forward in new ways. We feel energised and invigorated, which is no mean feat given how fatigued many of us were feeling!
– Elaine Williams, Principal Strategic Advisor, Bethany Group
As CFO, it is my job to research. I spent a day and a half researching for a company who could help our team build resilience ahead of some exciting growth. I looked at various companies but I kept coming back to Top Five Movement.
Our first workshop was even better than I expected and I was surprised that every member of the team responded well. Top Five Movement’s work is helping our team to be more productive, aid transition to change, have better communication and open discussion and build a renewed willingness to assist each other. Our next workshop is booked in and we look forward to working with Clare + the Top Five team further.
– Chris Anderson, CFO, Retzos Group
