Metis (/’miːtɪs/; Ancient Greek: Μῆτις , romanized: Mêtis, lit. ’wisdom’, ‘skill’, or ‘craft’)

Metis was a mythical Titaness considered by some to be the greatest wife of Zeus. She embodied wisdom, prudence, wise counsel and deep thought. Her daughter Athena was another goddess of wisdom and creativity.

Metisphere was born out of a desire to engage in wise counsel and apply the science of organisational psychology with the art of strategic advisory. In 2010, Dr Ali Burston opened the Metisphere doors, designing award winning national and global programs for organisations and industry associations across the mining and resources sector.

Since its establishment, Metisphere has transformed from a programmatic mentoring provider specialising in diversity and inclusion, to a specialist advisory firm building sustainable behaviour change for a global client base. Shifting the hearts and minds of organisations through evidence-based individual, team and organisational interventions is fundamental to our vision.

We are a unique and dedicated team of organisational psychologists and organisational development specialists focused on driving change in the areas of strategy, leadership and culture, and human resources and talent development.
