Because the fundamental unit of growth in any organization is the individual, our starting point for talking about growth is you.
Some of the questions we will answer are:
• Why, despite the desire to learn, can it be so difficult to start something new and stick with it?
• What does it take to gain and maintain momentum?
• Once we’ve made considerable progress, why do we sometimes tire of what we’re doing and even feel we can no longer do it? Why do we outgrow things so quickly?
The more you understand about your deep longing to grow and how
to grow yourself, the greater your capacity to grow your people, to grow your company. That’s smart growth.
The S Curve of Learning is a map to look at your life: where you were, where you are, and where you want to go—a continuous pathway to achieving potential.
When you can picture yourself moving along this growth curve, you can more easily plan a trajectory and plot your progress.
You can get smart about your growth.
