Performance Development

Hi there, my name is Brian Carroll and I’m the founder and Director of Performance Development. Brian Carroll

We are a consulting business that has been established for 20+ years here in Melbourne, Australia.  We offer training and HR solutions to a wide range of public and private sector organisations.

What exactly do we offer, you ask? Please read on …..

Corporate Training

We offer a wide range of short courses that cover business capabilities such as Management Skills, Presentation Skills, Negotiating Skills and Project Management for example. All training can be tailored to the needs of the client – either in terms of course duration or course content. Many of our clients are based in Melbourne, however we have delivered programs throughout Australia. For example, Productivity & Outlook Training in Canberra

HR Consulting

Services include for example reviewing your recruitment and selection policies, processes and practices. Traditional recruitment often places too much emphasis upon the interview – often with a consequence that the good “salesperson” is appointed ahead of the genuinely “best person”……. We can offer expert guidance on how to add more robustness to your selection process (you might be interested.in our Recruitment & Selection Interviewing Skills training course, that we deliver in-company)

We can offer recommendations on how you might utilise other methods such as skills testing, simulations and group interviewsas in order to endure you are making effective assessments of candidates

A HR review might include other areas such as

  • a review of how you are promoting vacancies,
  • whether position descriptions reflect the job’s capability requirements,
  • induction and on-boarding of new staff,
  • policies and practices around staff training and availability of professional development opportunities 
  • handling of staff resignations

In addition to corporate training and HR consulting, , we offerbusiness services that include executive coaching, management consulting, mediation and team building.

Established for more than twenty years in Melbourne, Australia (ie. since 1989) – our training courses are all carefully designed with a practical focus and are delivered in an engaging way. Participants gain tools, tips and personal insights that can be immediately applied in the workplace.

We have delivered training or provided consulting services to a wide range of public and private sector organisations such as Department of Justice, Department of Defence, ANZ, Computershare, Yarra Valley Water, Barwon Water and Moonee Valley City Council for example

What is my background, you may well ask? …. I’m a qualified psychologist, experienced facilitator and I have an extensive background in business management and human resources. Over the years, I’ve put together a great team of subject-matter experts.
