We create workplaces where people can be happy, productive and motivated
Transformed Teams is a boutique management consulting agency delivering transformational workplace strategy and human-centred design.
We see property as a people issue. Traditionally, property is managed by people with property-related degrees and qualifications. But we are on a mission to create workplaces where people can experience the joy of doing their best work.
Our work improves people’s productivity, reduces turnover, saves money and creates workplaces where people can be happy and motivated to do their best work. We help leaders create a new normal that achieves their aspirations. Stress goes down and wellbeing improves. People are able to achieve more, and enjoy doing it.
Leaders trust us to transform their teams
We understand the challenges of modern workplaces.
We work as a virtual team out of New Zealand, Australia and the United States.
Let us introduce ourselves.

Transformed Teams was founded by Nina Fountain, an entrepreneur and consultant with a varied career across communication sciences, business and public service leadership. Nina’s work is driven by wanting to take people on brave adventures that increase their success and joy.
In 2008 Nina had an epiphany, a week after starting with her employer at the time. She realised that working with her employer for longer than five years would be a bad idea. She saw its poor culture and low workplace satisfaction and didn’t want to be shaped by those negative factors. Five years later, she stepped out of that secure job to help leaders create workplaces that do the opposite – bringing out people’s best, through the potential of flexibility. That’s how Transformed Teams was created.
Employers vary greatly and not every employer is well-positioned to create an environment that inspires people to contribute their best work. The first challenge leaders face is designing a winning strategy. And one of their most significant challenges is aligning their business around their winning strategies. These are the challenges we turn into opportunities.
Let us help you succeed by creating a high-performing modern workplace
We fully understand the reality that achieving workplace transformation is difficult if you don’t get full commitment and alignment at the highest level. This is why we work mainly with executive and leadership teams. This is especially important during the Discovery and Design processes.
In the course of the Development phase, there is a lot of opportunity to work with teams or groups of teams that are not at the executive level. We love working with these groups of people to achieve satisfying, measurable gains in job commitment, overall engagement, wellbeing and stress reduction and overall productivity.
