ShareTree established and founded the ‘7 Layers of Evolution’ and ‘7 Layers of Team Culture’ from correlated research between many different fields. These include Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Spiral Dynamics, NLP, Values Pendulum, Human Energy System, Adult Human Development Theory, Psychological Development Theory, Barrett Values Model, Darwinism, Social Development Theory, and also religious models.

Initiated in 2013, ShareTree began by integrating The Virtues Project’s base 100 character traits. Further research was conducted that included VIA Character Strengths, Templeton Institute, and the Jubilee Centre for Character Development in which 20 more character traits were identified that were not previously represented but are commonly used by people and organisations. ShareTree evolved the base 100 cards and added 20 new character cards to create a secular, non-religious, set of 120 Character Virtue Cards that can be used in any aspect of life. ShareTree conducted further research to understand how the Character Virtue Cards were associated to the 7 Layers of Evolution and discovered that all 120 could be categorised into twelve Character Groups.

These cards are now widely used by businesses, community organisations, schools, families and coaches.

ShareTree also developed a mobile app, as well as analysis and reporting tools for character development and team culture enhancement to improve wellbeing and performance.
