Mind Your Ps is a member of the national HR Coach Network, and is a boutique HR and Business coaching company, based in Lake Macquarie NSW, working down the eastern seaboard of Australia.

Our broadly experienced Human Resources / People and Culture and Business Coaches specialise in improving business performance through improved Culture, communication, employee self-awareness, emotional intelligence, mindset and performance.

We are business people just like you – working with you to identify, assess, plan and implement the best right-sized and pragmatic solutions, that are customised to meet the needs of you and your business.

At Mind Your Ps, our Passion is helping you and your People achieve your business goals no matter what stage of the business lifecycle you’re at, by aligning action to strategy (see the business strategic growth model below).

Research shows that the more the actions of you and your People are aligned to your business strategy, the better and more sustainable your results will be, not to mention how much happier you and your staff will also be.

Our Philosophy

Mind Your Ps was established in 2008 to work with SME’s or departments of up to 150 staff providing HR Coaching &Consulting services on either a project or full HR plan basis. Previously known as Edwardson Hanlon, our commitment is to “right size” Best Practice Human Resource practices and services taken from the International, National, Corporate and SME market and make them accessible to more Australian SME’s.

We want to help make Aussie workplaces into places that Employers and Employees alike enjoy coming to and can thrive in by focusing on many aspects of People, Productivity and Potential. Many of us spend a large part of our day working after all.

Our model is a mixture of providing one off or on-going monthly retainer service delivery. We prefer to provide coaching and mentoring to ensure skill transfer to build sustainability in the Companies we work with, however we do provide HR Consulting services, or an Outsourced HR support function if preferred.
