Who are Monkey Puzzle?

We help leaders find the time to lead, and teams to align with purpose and direction.

Formed by organisational psychologists Karen Meager and John McLachlan in 2007, Monkey Puzzle is a consultancy focused on coaching, training and personal development.
We do this for both leaders and their teams.

Our Values

We want to help people and organisations realise their mission and purpose, to see their ideas take flight and achieve great things.

We get to know our clients over time - and we work with them when they are comfortable that the time is right. We always respect that we are being invited into someone’s organisation, often to work on projects that are deeply personal to them. We respond with the same optimistic and forward looking nature our clients bring to us.

We offset our carbon footprint via Offset Earth

Are we a good fit for you?
