Your Handbook For
Mastering Vertical Growth
Vertical Growth is designed for leaders in any industry who are striving to improve both their own leadership behaviours and organisational performance, as well as achieve personal development through greater self-awareness and self-regulation.
The fact is, great leaders don’t know everything – and they certainly don’t get it right all the time. But the quality that sets them apart is a commitment to continual learning and vertical growth.
By harnessing self-awareness to recognise the thoughts, assumptions and behaviours that are holding you back, you’ll be empowered to consciously create new behaviours that are aligned with your best intentions and aspirations.
Featuring fascinating real-life case studies, along with a wealth of practical tools and strategies, this comprehensive guide teaches you how to master vertical growth in yourself, your team and your organisation.
One of the hardest challenges we face as leaders is getting people to change. What this book reveals is that the easiest and best way to get others to change is to change ourselves. This book is for any leader ready for that life changing commitment.

The more we align our behaviour with our growth values and cultivate deep integrity, congruency, and inner harmony, the better leaders we become. In turn, the better our organisations perform, while also making a positive difference in the world.
