Unlocking possibility & potential

Who is Bounce Global?

The Way Finders

We deliver evidence-based wellbeing and work readiness strategies that are powerful and practical.

Bounce is a group of people looking to make positive changes in people’s lives. Since 2006 we’ve been teaching essential soft skills and wellbeing strategies like communication, emotional intelligence, strengths development and resilience to help people find their way.

We travel all over Australia, New Zealand, the USA and the UK delivering programs based around social science, positive psychology, and emotional intelligence to people looking for work, people in work, businesses, companies and government departments.

On a mission

We’re creating positive change in the employment and workforce development sector through our life changing wellbeing and work readiness programs.
We inspire people to see themselves differently by unlocking their possibility and potential and helping them to live amazing lives. 

The values we live by

We do the
right thing.

We’re accountable, fair and focused. We believe trust is earned, and we work to gain it every day. We’ll always act with
integrity, and we’re not afraid to speak up when it’s difficult and do what’s right when no one is watching.

We're in it

Our business is all about
extraordinary relationships built on a foundation of loyalty, honesty and inclusiveness. No-one has to go it alone; someone will always have your back.

We are

We’re enthusiastic team players, we always have fun, and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We always treat each other with respect, empathy and appreciation.

We get sh*t

We always show up with the right amount of energy, and use our passion and commitment to motivate, engage and inspire others. We go the extra mile to deliver high-quality outcomes and believe in being the best – to ourselves, to each other and our partners & clients.

We stand for

We are genuine to our brand, purpose, and values. We’re not perfect, and we won’t pretend to be – we believe in staying true to our authentic selves. Bounce is transparent, reliable, evidence-based, and seriously clever!

Acknowledging Country

In the spirit of reconciliation, Bounce Global respectfully acknowledges the Dja Dja Wurrung, Wadawurrung and Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we operate our business.

We recognise their continued connection to land, water and community and pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.  

We express our gratitude in the sharing of this land, our sorrow for the personal, spiritual and cultural costs of that sharing and our hope that we may walk forward together in harmony and in the spirit of healing.
