Service DescriptionsStrategic Alignment MeetingsGrowth River designs and delivers strategic alignment meetings for teams at all key leadershiplevels including: boards, enterprise teams, business teams and function teams. These meetingscome in four basic types and each has a different basic agenda: 1. Team Alignment – when the primary constraint is leaderships ways-‐of-‐thinking & acting. 2. System-‐of-‐Roles – when the primary constraint is an incomplete system-‐of-‐roles. 3. System-‐of-‐Strategies – when the primary constraint is an incomplete system-‐of-‐strategies. 4. Performance Review – when the primary constraint is attracting and deploying resources.During all alignment meetings, primary constraints are identified and the organizations development stage is assessed. Teams, organizations and businesses are able to grow at maximum speed once they evolve to the stage at which highly effective performance review meetings are normal. The other types of meetings (1-‐3) are how you get to that stage.Leadership & Business CoachingDuring strategic alignment meetings, participants are given feedback, asked to play newroles and required to formulate strategies / recommendations. Sometimes they need coaching.Because our coaches are experts in the Growth River OS, they can provide both leadership and business coaching at the same time. Furthermore, this coaching is done in the context of overall team, business and organizational development, which makes it especially effective.Training and OS User LicensesFor a nominal annual fee, the Growth River OS is offered as licensed open-‐source intellectualproperty.

Growth River OS: A Practical PhilosophySome leaders talk about general principals for attracting abundance. At Growth River we apply and teach a practical system for developing better leaders and growing more abundant businesses, everyday – it is called the Growth River Operating System (OS).The common sense logic behind the Growth River OS can be summarized as: when… the right leaders, with the right mindsets, in the right roles, advocate the right strategies and work interdependently on the right activities… ...then higher levels of sustainable performance become inevitable.More specifically, we have proven that we can radically increase sustainable leadership and business performance by: ü Providing leaders with a powerful language (the OS). ü Defining complete systems-‐of-‐roles and strategies. ü Leveraging naturally occurring conflict among roles as a source of innovation. ü Orchestrating breakthrough experiences – an experience always trumps an argument.Although Growth River consultants undergo intense training in applying our OS with leaders in complex businesses, we also offer our OS as licensed open-‐source intellectual property. This is an unusual move for our industry, but one that is geared towards building a community of leaders who can collaborate and support each other’s development. Updated versions of the OS are released with input from our community of practitioners about every 90 days.In fact, our OS has been and is being applied successfully in many different cultures and industries including: public, private, for-‐profit, not-‐for-‐profit, start-‐up, complex global, professional, family, manufacturing, services and retail, mergers, divestitures and organic growth.The open and universal nature of our OS supports our vision – we are working to change the context of business towards a more abundant world.For case studies, client testimonials, webinars and training materials on the Growth River OS, please visit our website www.GrowthRiver.com © 2011 Growth River, LLC.
