Growth Development was founded to develop a unique solution to addressing the phenomenon of people, culture and performance challenges at the team, organisational and community levels. This came about on the realisation that the very system that needed to change, was actually what constraint the ability to change.

Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to experience many different levels of leadership across many different industries. This provided me with many different challenges and learnings, depending on the organisation, the leadership structure and the people attributes. What was the same though, was the frustration of our people. That is our people on the floor as well as the people leading them, right through to the top level strategic leaders. I could see the energy this took and how this impacted on them and took away from their ability to thrive in their work.

I realised I could see things. Where the blocks were. The misalignment of perspectives. Where top down priorities meet bottom up priorities. 

Recognising the factor my social science systems lens played in my abilities to identify and analyse organisational people problems, I embarked on developing a first of its kind solution from a systemic AND humanistic lens. Researching the greatest organisations in the world, I found out what they do to get things right for their people to perform to their optimum and how they do it. I went on to enlist a talented team of experts to develop a world first SIMPLE solution to uniting teams, organisations and communities.
