About Us


Our name, is a new word, made up of two words, ‘Mindful’ and ‘Conscious’. 

Mindscious 'adjective' : blending mindful focus and conscious action to generate motivations for effective performance". Created 11:26, 20 May 2007.

The term 'Mindscious' was coined by Sylvie Carter, founder of the Mindscious Group to specify and describe a new experiential coaching and facilitation process, designed to empower 'unconscious' and 'conscious' thinking and action to grow leadership performance and productivity.   The term was inspired by what is referred to as 'brain based' or 'evidence based' coaching.  

The Mindscious Group was founded in July 2007 to support leaders to empower motivation and performance for sustainable change.  To achieve this, the Mindscious Group incorporates a number of exclusive alliances to deliver and tailor its ‘unique sourced’ proprietory methodologies, tools, and solutions,such as licensing and training Motivational Map® Practitioners. We train and license Practitioners and also a number of Business Practitioners in our methodologies.  Delivery of our solutions within the public sector  is sourced directly via the Mindscious Group, particularly with all our Business Practitioners who are able to train others.

We are a privately owned Australian company, made up of a number of talented professionals who offer decades of collective experience working across the Private, Public and Not For Profit and Charity sectors, and know how to provide you with the right strategies for success.
