GROWTH DEVELOPMENT was founded on the realisation that the very system that needed to change, was actually what constraint the ability to change.

Throughout my career I realised I could see things. Where the blocks were. The misalignment of perspectives. Where top down priorities meet bottom up priorities. It was different 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.

Recognising the factor my social science systems lens played in my abilities to identify and analyse organisational people problems from a systemic AND humanistic lens, I embarked on developing a first of its kind solution. 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. Then exploring the relationship between my expertise in culture, systems thinking, people engagement, mental health and wellbeing and that of human performance,  and organisational development and change management, I went on to enlist talented experts across these areas.

Growth Development was founded  and grown to develop a unique solution to addressing the phenomenon of people and culture challenges at the team, organisational and community levels.
