Tracy loved the adventures of The Secret Seven as a child: a small troupe solving mysteries together, often on their bicycles. Their exploits inspired her career in foreign lands and interest in what makes a great team. Today, Tracy is a Social Scientist with expertise in employee engagement, organizational change, knowledge management, and intrapreneurship. She has lived and worked in Asia and Europe in addition to her native Australia undertaking a range of senior human resource management and consulting roles.
Organizations are complex places and Tracy is keen to help leaders create work environments where creativity flourishes and workers are engaged. She knows there are many things that everyone inside an organization can do to build a workplace where it’s great to show up every day.
Since completing her Ph.D. which investigated the characteristics in the work environment most contributing to employee engagement and creative behaviors, she has written two books. The first book Engagement Whisperer: A quieter and more collaborative approach to inspiring your team outlines a ‘softly, softly’ approach to lifting engagement. Her most recent book Creativity Cycling: Help your team solve complex problems with creative tools was co-written with creativity expert Barbara Wilson. This book describes how Barbara and Tracy have helped others solve complex problems and reimagine the future.
