“One unique aspect of Mark’s  program on Growth is that a literal checklist is created throughout the session, it helped me to prioritize the top constraints to growth and create a step-by-step action plan, his checklist corresponded to his book, Growth or Bust! which we were then able to use as a detailed follow up resource, I had the entire management team read it, as well as the sales team members and each reported out on it. Great ideas for all.”
