Growth Wheel® Make Decisions. Take Action.

GrowthWheel® was designed around the observation that all businesses – in all industries and life stages – have four lasting challenges in common:

  • they must create an attractive Business Concept
  • build a strong Organization behind it
  • develop lasting Client Relations and
  • do so while maintaining profitable Operations.

GrowthWheel® is a tool for decision-making in start-up and growth companies. Rather than trying to do everything at once – or make plans for everything – the core message is to find the single most important areas and focus on them first.

These individual Workshops are $25 each or
for Unlimited Sessions.
Pay at Door: Check or Money Order ONLY!

These workshops are from 10 a.m. to Noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays on NPC's Show Low Campus, 1001 W. Deuce of Clubs, in the Goldwater Center, room 107.
