As we continue to navigate the challenges of COVID-19, we are faced with a decision point of how we respond and show up for ourselves and others. More and more we are experiencing a chronic state of languishing which dulls motivation, disrupts focus, and narrows people’s focus inward. Presently we are on the cusp of ‘The Great Resignation’, with a 2021 Microsoft Survey data suggesting that a staggering 41% of employees are thinking of quitting their job. What impact is this having on us and the organisations we lead? What impact will this have on society in years to come? And as leaders, how do we lean into this challenge, for ourselves, for our organisations and for society more broadly? Joined by Angus Hervey, Co-Founder, Future Crunch, we explore the parallel of collapse and renewal, and what we can learn from these stories to combat the challenge that we face into right now.
Growth & Optimism with Alison Simpson
November 2021 marks 20 years since the founding of our firm. To celebrate this milestone, we commissioned a unique artwork by Indigenous artist Alison Simpson to represent the impact we have had with leaders illustrating how their impact ripples across organisations, communities and society more broadly. Alison explains the thinking behind her painting.
Creative Employee Training Leads to Business Improvements
Traditional learning is historically driven out of programs and training sessions. This type of learning is a structured intervention that aims to change and improve specific areas of employee productivity. However, not everything needs to be a training course or a 70-20-10. Employee training and learning needs to be creative.

The Australian Financial Review spoke with Maximus Founder Vanessa Gavan, and Associate Director Katherine Boiciuc, about the fundamental leadership capabilities and mindset, required to transform an organisation.
