Education is a never-ending journey. It is important to keep learning even as you lead your business and enterprise to thrive. While continued growth is challenging for startups, the growth of mid-market companies follows a different trajectory. Things don’t get any easier as you scale your business and add more people to your organization. Hence, it is vital to align the organization with a mindset of growth. Growth Institute provides the best community and training resources for small- and mid-market companies to build the systems and processes to thrive and grow their business.
Growth Institute goes beyond providing the resources to learn; it provides the structure, support and network busy leaders need to implement and build a business. Their online programs have helped leaders from across the globe stay ahead of the curve in this digital age.
Daniel Marcos (Co-founder and CEO of Growth Institute) partnered with noted entrepreneur Verne Harnish in 2012 to bring executive training to the masses through Growth Institute in 2012. Today, Growth Institute has brought to more people the knowledge that was once reserved for a small niche of wealthy companies. It is now available to all CEOs and their executive teams. In less than a decade, Growth Institute has been recognized four times among the top 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the USA (Inc. 5000), with over 50,000 members from over 10,000 companies across 68 countries.
“Over the past several years, we have trained over 40,000 students from thousands of companies. We’ve helped them create breakthroughs to grow and scale with less drama and a better quality of life,” said Daniel Marcos, Co-founder and CEO of Growth Institute. “We have developed a unique process, not available anywhere else, for high-level entrepreneurs and business leaders to follow, that has an implementation and completion rate of around 70%, as opposed to the average 3%.”
Growth Institute is focused on implementation and results, rather than just (e.g., cookie-cutter; standardized; basic; run-of-the-mill; etc.) learning or coaching that ultimately goes nowhere. Growth Institute assures an “immediate ROI” with its method, which is called “The Hybrid Method of Learning.” This includes a 4-step process that leaves nothing to chance. Using this 4-step process, Growth Institute helps companies breakthrough their “plateaus” so that they can grow and scale with less stress and less drama. “And if you are a company already in the midst of rapid growth but have multiple internal issues affecting your productivity, organization, and reliability, we help reduce the drama so you can focus on growth and progress, not problems.”
Another secret to Growth Institute’s success is that they don’t teach just the leaders – they teach the team too, so that they can do the work leaders need them to do, at the level that the leaders need them to do it at.
To set up the leaders and its team to work together for a smooth change and rapid growth, Growth Institute executes the following steps:
Growth Institute is truly disrupting the online executive education industry with accredited learning experiences and an ecosystem that helps busy leaders keep scaling with less drama. With the launch of their new Company University called MBD All Access, Growth Institute is going beyond learning and helping companies build a learning culture with a growth mindset. They are providing assessments, personalized onboarding, check-in calls, and reporting to help build out pathways and roadmaps to guide a customized learning journey for their clients and connect it to the biggest organizational priorities.
No longer is corporate education a one-way learning experience, the MBD All Access is an ecosystem. Teams will learn and inevitably have questions, hit roadblocks, and discover new opportunities through their learning path in which they want to discuss and ask questions.
Their hybrid education model based on relevant and unique business content, certified training, and guided implementation, and a world-class community makes learning fun, impactful, and a catalyst for employee and company growth.
It will be interesting to see what the future offerings are from the company from here on!
