About Us

We’re people specialists, focusing on leadership development, assessment, talent management, coaching and culture. We are passionate about helping your people to develop and thrive in complex times.

Our History

People Measures was established in 2006 by Nick Carter, who was joined by Frances Feenstra a short time later. The name has two meanings: 

  • Measure (Verb): Estimate (quality, person’s character etc) by some standard or rule
  • Measure (Noun): Suitable action

Using assessment and measurement to gain insight into organisations and people is true to today and is at the heart of what we do. 

Our organisational psychologists and leadership experts recognise that valid, deep assessment and understanding of people mitigates risk and optimises outcomes.

Our Team

People Measures is one of the most sought-after management and leadership consultancies in Australia for a reason. We are a values-driven and highly qualified group of organisational psychologists and development, measurement and communication experts. It’s the professionalism and expertise of our people that make all the difference.

Our Values


For ourselves and others. We are trustworthy, reliable and act with integrity and honesty. We work sustainably to allow ourselves and others to thrive.


We embrace inclusion and welcome all contributions with an openness and curiosity for different perspectives.


We act with courage in our interactions, we own our mistakes, and challenge the status quo with purpose and intent.


We emphasise quality. Our work is based on the best evidence and science available; our interventions make a difference.


Growth is central to everything we do. We strive to enable ourselves and everyone we work with to reach their full potential. We ask, “what would better look like?”


We experiment and have fun, we play to build trust, show authenticity, encourage innovation and taking risks. Fun and joy balances the sometimes-challenging work of leadership.

Our Community

A tangible, deliberate part of our business is putting time, energy and resources into helping Not For Profit organisations and charities build leadership capacity so they have a better chance of achieving their goal.

Reconciliation Action Plan

People Measures acknowledges, respects and seeks to learn from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples, histories, cultures and connections to waterways and country. We pay particular respect to Elders and are conscious that First Nations’ sovereignty has never been ceded. We commit with energy to a future where all people have equity of opportunity and socially just outcomes.

Who we work with


“The best thing I learnt was the tools, techniques and theories behind leadership that I can make my own.”
