Lunch & Learn Series


The Subject:

"Are You Ready to Grow?" presented by Bradley Greene, Ph.D., Founder & Managing Partner, Sixeight

Every business owner wants to grow their business. Or do they?

Have you ever felt like "the dog that caught the bus?" You have been chasing a new client or new business channel, and you finally landed it. BUT your processes and people were not ready to handle it? Maybe your leadership team wasn't ready to manage the new responsibilities that come with the new growth areas. Sometimes accelerated growth actually can be a setback to the culture that you have worked so hard to build.

Sixeight's business is to plan, execute, and finance accelerated business growth. Our goal is always at least 2X growth in the businesses that we engage. This kind of growth is not for the faint at heart, and our first step is always to understand the organization's current "readiness" for this kind of growth. 

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • Four focus areas of a well-designed growth strategy
  • Key elements of being ready for growth
  • How to assess your own readiness for growth
Participants will leave with a self-assessment that can be used to begin understanding your organization's level of readiness for growth.
Join us for a highly interactive workshop that will help you get ready for the kind of growth that you always thought you could achieve.
