Growth only occurs in a state of discomfort, and "discomfort" we are to organizations who are ready to invest in the people who have the most impact on how much gets sold: the manager.
These managers are equipped with education, tools and resources to become high performing coaches in an environment supportive of getting out of order and into complexity to drive growth.
Everything we do is done with your company's growth in mind.

The first Growth Ring represents a low performing, or negative growth environment. It is understood by needing to follow too many steps, permissions and minutia that stifle creativity, independent thought or action.
Next to Stagnation is the most desirable environment, Order. Order is knowing what you do or what is happening in your environment leads to a predictable outcome, and predictability is what brings you comfort. But comfort, is what makes Order so dangerous.
Complexity is nothing more than changed Order, but when Order is changed outcomes are now unpredictable, and it is unpredictability that makes you uncomfortable. This discomfort can lead to sustained or exponential growth - especially when done properly by managers.
The last ring, Chaos, is being in a state of zero to no control of the inputs or outputs, otherwise thought of as being out of control or pure insanity. Almost no growth or development happens in this state of severe turmoil.
"For months at the office we have been coasting and not pushing the envelope. This Talk made me realize we need to “get uncomfortable”! Now I’m trying to think of ways to drive complexity throughout our business in order to grow."
"Sometimes we enable people to not move into complexity. As a school counselor often times I want to help fix a situation which may keep a student from experiencing complexity where growth truly happens. It has made me more aware of helping people embrace what may be scary and unknown in order not to deprive them of the opportunity to grow and experience the joy that comes through struggling."
"Wow. This really set things straight for me. We can only reach our full potential by engaging in discomfort. I’m 18 and this is what I needed to hear before entering the world as an adult."
"My 5-year old son watched this Talk and said, “I think my bed is too comfortable. Do you we need to do something about that?”
I told him I would ask Bill to get back to him."
