How to become a leader, not just a boss!

When it comes to Leadership, uncertainty is a permanent part of the process. Furthermore it isn’t an indication of poor Leadership, it just underscores the need for it.

It is this environment in which good Leadership is most often discovered. Since you’ll be constantly called to make decisions with limited information, your goal should not be to eliminate it, but develop the ability to have faith in your abilities and be courageous and clear, in spite of it.

It is not your job to remove uncertainty, it’s your job to inspire, have & provide clarity, believe, and progress in the midst of it. When you do that you are learning to be a Leader.

Imagine a place without a Leader, an Army without a General. Structure creates order, without it no progress can be made.

As a Leader you will be called upon to make decisions regarding business, relationships, money, time, values, opportunities, and disputes. Your decisions show up on the bottom line. In that realm it takes longer to recognize your brilliance or your stupidity, because you’re forced to lead for long periods of time without the benefit of knowing whether you made the right call.

By the time your crop starts coming in its too late to change your agricultural procedure.

LEADERSHIP and leading properly, means giving back by leading and mentoring others.

What I mean by this is, you now have the opportunity and the ‘duty of care’ to serve, and give back, and help others. To pay it forward: just like the help you may have received to get your business to this point.

Having served in the NZ Army, NZ Police, served as a High Performance Teacher, and been high Level Rugby and Netball referees, Pete and Janelle have the skills and ability to increase your LEADERSHIP capability.

What this means for you is that you will be in a place where you can be a Leader in your Community, because people will see you and your business, as credible and successful. They will want to be associated with you and will want that knowledge in their Business Community. How would it feel to be acknowledged in this way?

Now also, is the opportunity to build a High Performance Team, if you are wanting to grow the business with employees. With a Team Performing at exceptional levels you have now built a legacy that you can be proud of.

And, here’s the thing: The difference between a Coach and a Mentor is:

A Coach asks questions to get an answer.

A Mentor HAS DONE WHAT YOU DO. THEY’VE WALKED THE PATH ALREADY and know what you are going through. Janelle and I have walked the path you are possibly going through, several times.

And we have a great process to guide you to become an even greater Leader

I can do this, and I don’t feel so weighed down and despondent. Breaking things down by category into the 90 day plan, I can see the individual tastings so much better.


Business is not all “lunch” and can be achieved with good communication. Be open to good advice.


I now have belief in myself and my goals. I know my next 30 days, and i realise what is important to me right now. I like being held accountable to my pledge letter.


Feel more clear on the direction of the business as a result of the day


Useful day and get your thinking to a deeper level. Good to be out of the business environment to do this


Pete displays a passion for our business and our plan which instills confidence into myself and my colleagues


Valuable day in which a busy business owner can stop working in the business and spend the day being creative on the business


A well organised, well delivered and very useful day. Would hightly recommend it to any new or existing business. Thoroughly enjoyed it, a great venue also

~Tim (plumber)

We have come away with a clear manageable action plan. We feel excited

~Imogen & Duncan (Food Industry)

Excellent presenters, friendly, knowledge and supportive. Gave me a great amount of enthusiasm to carry this strategy forward

~Glen (Bespoke software development)

A welcome time away from my business workplace to review and consider my actions and my plans through the support of Pete

~Gary (Corporate Events)

The Growth Club Day with Pete was enjoyable, interesting, well put together and above all else very worthwhile

~Chris ( Financial Services Industry)

Pete is very good at brining business management into focus and reminding you of some important but overlooked truths

Don’t just see lots to do as a great big lump, it can be broken down and plotted out to a chive in manageable amounts. Im using the default diary and integrating my diaries and other ‘productivity apps’ together. I can do this, and not feel so weighed down and despondent.

~Jacinta B

Business is not all luck, it can be achieved with good guidance. However you must be open to good advice.

~Phil R

Loved it. The time flew by. I liked the default diary idea and the value of the 90 day plan.

~Tim B

Goals and 90 day plan is very helpful. It’s nice to know that as a company we are not alone and other business owners are having similar difficulties.

~Terry W

Small steps in our 90 day plan that are now achievable and not daunting. The default diary to give an exact time and day to put aside and carry out certain chores. We need to Test and Measure – Immediately.

~Rachel R

I now know not to advertise with radio and paper! I loved the default diary and for a healthy business i must give consistent delivery.

~David R

Planning/goals is key. You need to know where you are going to get there. Small changes can make big differences. I need to make more time for me!

~Wendy W

Realising what is important to me right now, and knowing my next 30 days. It’s scary being held to y pledge letter!

~Mike S

More focus on what i need to achieve in bite sized chunks, and the importance of rewarding myself and my team for a job well done. I need to hurry up and do it now.

~Phil H

Thank you very much. I have more focus on what i need to achieve in bite sized chunks. I realise the importance of rewarding myself and myself for jobs well done.

It wasn’t just information – it was action. Loved it, the time flew by. I now understand the 3 ares of business, the default diary and the 90 day plan.


Growth Club let me interact with other business owners. I was very happy with the course, it has been informative.The 90 day plan I believe is going to be very helpful, and i know now how to work our “margins” for my business.


I liked the one to one embrace, support and encouragement. For a healthy business I must provide consistent delivery.


Pete and Janelle are a wonderful couple, who make it feel less of a chore and more of a creative session coming to their coaching sessions. Everything was explained in ‘layman’ terms. If I still didn’t get it, it was then explained simply and assistance given. Small changes can make big differences. You need too know where you’re going to be able to get there.
