More About Elevate Your Team

The journey to writing this book started with the most important realization of my professional life.

It was 2017. Acceleration Partners, the company I’d founded 10 years earlier, was rapidly growing. We had a strong organizational culture and a lot of excellent people on our team, but our breakneck growth rate was clearly pushing some of our team to a breaking point. Most challengingly, it was hard to predict who would be able to ride our growth wave, and who’d be overwhelmed by it.

Every leader knows this delicate balancing act: to simultaneously generate better performance from your team, retain top talent and build your organization’s leaders of tomorrow, without inducing burnout. In the sequel to Elevate, my proven capacity building framework is applied to teams and organizations alike. The result is the playbook for a results-oriented, learning-driven culture that elevates its people to meet the company’s ever-changing growth needs.

This is the manual for a new type of leader: one who builds a business by building people, not burning them out. It’s a framework of proven, actionable strategies that will help you up your game as a leader, help your team reach their full potential, and most importantly build the new generation of leaders from within your organization.
