Grow Together Handbook

Grow Together is a set of frameworks designed to help leaders gain clarity, connection and momentum.

GT is designed for ambitious people with potential and purpose, so that they can avoid confusion, isolation and stagnation on their way to success.

Systematically applying these frameworks is intended to help you achieve a big win within one year. This can include getting promoted, successfully delivering a complex project and/or accumulating a string of assets that will pay dividends over time.

I believe that leadership is about initiative and connection and that means that you don’t have to be a boss to lead. If you strive to make people’s lives better in some way and you invite others to work with you towards that end then you are a leader.

Grow Together is based on four pillars:

  1. Understanding what people know, believe and want using the Listen Ask Observe (LAO) framework .
  2. Communicating well by making your communication Concise, Concrete and Meaningful (CCM) for your intended audience.
  3. Making things. Making things people want. Making things that will pay dividends. Learning just enough to make (or do) something interesting.
  4. Maintaining balance by applying healthy Limits, taking care of adequate Regeneration and fuelling your efforts with Meaning.

Grow Together is based on over a decade of experience and is tested with multiple leaders I’ve worked with over the years.

The principles and tactics described above were also battle tested by students of the first cohort of Grow Together Academy.

The book is in early stages of development. If you’re interested sign up for updates below or reach out to me directly. I am constantly talking with potential readers to make the book as useful as possible for solving real-world problems and I’d love to talk to you too!
