For Young Adults
SlwGrwth is a PBC dedicated to the sustainable development and success of aspiring and seasoned business leaders and entrepreneurs through the cultivation of individual character and integrity. Its content and services will be created as a reflection of its members’ own deliberate approach to evolving as mature, integral human beings in their personal and professional lives. Our purpose is to dedicate our time and energy to create a space for leaders to deliberately work on themselves and their own process, through coaching, learning, listening, and questioning.
We’ve all been there. Staring at the shiny red object. Listening to the exit offer. We’ve all had that memorable moment in life where we’re faced with the decision between expedience or meaning.
What was your choice?
Here is the reality: the fastest way to the top won’t keep you there. People and businesses who shortchange their internal character and values inevitably fall. And when they do, it’s always a long drop back to the bottom and a much steeper climb the second time around. If you want to get to the top and stay there, the key is integrity and character developed over a long, deliberate process. Sure, it takes time, and it often feels like an unnoticed effort, but be patient. Integrity requires slow growth and will always pay off in the end.
SlwGrwth is bringing this mindset to entrepreneurs and others focused on the process of personal and professional development. It is in the long-term process of building character, creatively innovating, iteration, and yes, even failure, that we and the work we do become sustainable.
For Business Leaders
As we typically see it, a business leader has gotten to that position through excellent performance, experience generation, and building a track record of progress that makes them a great option to manage and lead a team toward success.
For organizations looking to evolve, the success of their leaders must be measured in their evolution as people, not simply in numbers. Do we promote our top sales performers to be sales managers? To we look for good humans to lead or track records for success? When we hire, are we building teams with people who make us comfortable or people who will challenge us and the way we look at things? Do we choose the meaningful path or the expedient path?
Business leaders have the choice to choose to fall in love with the image of how success looks or to focus on a higher purpose. One may be the easier, quicker way to their perceived top. The other, a slower, more deliberate path to long term growth. Does the leader pick obsessing over a title, number of fans, or the size of their paycheck? Or on real, tangible accomplishment?
SlwGrwth is showing business leaders that there is more than just the sale, the win, or the title. That the evolving company needs leaders who are patiently and intentionally giving their knowledge and time to the teams under them so that they can grow beyond.
