Addressing Pain Points

In the journey of business growth, leaders often face unique challenges that can hinder progress and affect decision-making. Addressing these pain points is crucial for sustainable development and success. Organizational ReWilding Growth Groups are specifically designed to assist in navigating these challenges:

  • Managing Complex Change: As businesses grow, they encounter increasing complexity in operations and management. Organizational ReWilding Growth Groups offer guidance on navigating these complexities with structured methodologies and peer insights.

The Organizational ReWilding Growth Groups program addresses various aspects of business growth, with a strong focus on the Stages of Growth and the concept of Transition Zones. Each stage brings its unique challenges and focus areas, requiring different strategies and leadership styles. As a company transitions from one stage to another, it encounters Transition Zones, periods of change characterized by either a Flood Zone, where work becomes overwhelming, or a Wind Tunnel, where existing processes and structures no longer suffice. These Transition Zones require specific leadership skills emphasizing structure, clarity, and focus to navigate the business through these turbulent periods successfully.


Another crucial aspect of the program is the Non-Negotiable Rules, spread across six foundational areas: Business Development, Business Model & Plan, Finance, Leadership, Operations, and Workplace Community. These rules are essential for a business to transition successfully from one stage to the next. Ignoring these rules can lead to an unbalanced ecosystem within the business, creating weaknesses and hampering growth. Organizational Rewilding growth Groups offers assessments and guidebooks tailored to each stage, providing business leaders with the necessary tools and knowledge to align their businesses with these growth principles.
