Growth Framework

Successful companies all perform the same series of activities. Our Growth Framework organizes them into a streamlined process for effective business creation. 

Increasing Collective Intelligence through Coaching (Training), drives extraordinary Leading (Innovating) and Managing (Executing).

In sports, performing arts, first responders, and many professions, preparation, practice and training with the right coach is essential. The same is true in leader groups.

The job of Coaching is to increase Collective Intelligence ... to enable extraordinary Leading and Managing.

Increasing CIQ is the neuroscience of training and controlling your brain to think and interact more deeply and fluidly. 


Learning expands thinking and releases cognitive surplus, causing remarkable new capacities to emerge

Group members expand their knowledge, and rebuild natural curiosity.  They begin to explore more and notice more.

New broad knowledge causes your brain to make new connections, thoughts and perspectives ... the foundation for ideas.

As members' thinking capacities expand, they commit to the group as friends.  


Applying interpersonal neuroscience, barriers are removed, and information flow expands quickly and dramatically.

Good training releases a group that thinks and acts quickly and fluidly together.

The job of Leading is to Innovate a compelling future ... to create extraordinary new growth.  


Chief Executive Officer domain.


A vision is born when a group sees an unfilled need and develops an idea.

An increasing CIQ expands capacity to explore more opportunities more quickly. It supports first principals thinking that opens more opportunities in more industries. 


Opportunities are distilled into a clear compelling business definition

Value Propositions and Business Models are developed in robust, exhilarating innovation Workshops.

Value Propositions define the business capabilities to be developed and implemented through a Business Plan.

Innovating is continuous. Technology and thinking are changing so fast that today's ideas are too late tomorrow.

A vision based on end-point needs won't change ... but, the path to get there will.

The job of Managing is to build and Execute the present ... to deliver extraordinary new growth.

Chief Operating Officer domain.

Without exceptional execution, good ideas and visions are worthless. 


With exceptional execution, products exceed expectations, marketing & sales is fast and efficient, and customers give positive feedback through re-orders and referrals … driving more growth. 


Managing starts with a Business Design centered on Value Propositions.  It oversees development, testing, resource acquisition and deployment to build the business.

A high CIQ increases people’s ability to focus, organize, and attend to details


A high CIQ enables your group to see anomalies and exceptions quickly, and to realign or correct before they become problems that reduce value.


Exceptional managing is extraordinary execution, while also scanning for improvement and innovation ideas.
