Growth is all around us. We see it in how the leaves fall from autumns trees to them prepare for a winter season rest and recovery. We see it in the people around us, perhaps in how our children quickly outgrow their new clothes, or in how an old friend has become more reflective or jaded with time. And we see it, sometimes, in ourselves -- maybe when we find a picture from several years ago and compare it to the face we see in the mirror.
Truly, growth is our natural state. Growth is equated with another invigorating and often disruptive word, "change." There are few things that can be as frustrating, uncomfortable, or downright disconcerting as growth.
In our work with idealists, we've seen that getting comfortable with growth is synonymous to being comfortable with ourselves. And we work to create that growth along three dimensions.
In the second of an eight-week series of interviews from the Classy Collaborative, Plenty co-leaders Jennifer Mulholland and Jeff Shuck discuss what growth is, why it is important, and some basics about how to unlock growth for your organization and yourself.
