Our story

Learning to Flourish started in Edinburgh in 2011. Our mission is to help businesses, the NHS and schools raise their performance by motivating their staff, engaging them with change and nurturing leadership.

We believe in giving people the power to raise their own performance. Learning to Flourish’s DRIVE performance psychology model helps people understand and use their signature strengths to push aside blockers such as a fear of mistakes, imposter syndrome and loss of self belief.
