Scaling Up logo

What Is Scaling Up?

In the Scaling Up™ methodology, Harnish and his team share practical tools and techniques for building an industry-dominating business. These approaches have been honed from over three decades of advising tens of thousands of CEOs and executives and helping them navigate the increasing complexities (and weight) that come with scaling up a venture.

How Does It Benefit Me?

To accomplish this, Scaling Up focuses on the four major decision areas every company must get right: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash. We use this methodology and toolset with all of our clients. They build and execute their One Page Strategic Plan, creating immense value across the organization, achieving goals and targets as a byproduct of the overall process.

This methodology has already been successfully used by more than 40,000 organizations around the globe — many of which scaled to $1 billion and beyond.

Franklin Covey

What Is FranklinCovey?

FranklinCovey was built upon the writings of Dr. Stephen R. Covey, specifically “The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People”. FranklinCovey offers a wide range of world class leadership assessment tools, including two we commonly use at CPSI: the Leadership Quotient Inventory (LQi) and the Trust Quotient Inventory (TQi).

How Does It Benefit Me?

These assessment tools provide the client (and coach) with a 360-degree view of their leadership skills and behaviors, plus recommendations for improvement. CPSI utilizes these assessments to best position the leader to gain acute awareness of his/her leadership growth opportunities, then deliver coaching specific to the results of the assessment.

The Predictive Index logo

What Is The Predictive Index?

The Predictive Index is a science-based methodology of job assessments, behavioral assessments, and cognitive assessments. They are data-driven, scientifically validated workforce analytics and offer action-oriented training and development, proven management tools for front line leaders, and expert consulting supported by 60+ years of success.

How Does It Benefit Me?

The results of these assessments allow leaders to understand what drives workplace behaviors, so they can ensure alignment, drive their team’s success, and achieve business objectives faster than ever thought possible. We offer this service to most of our clients, depending on their needs. The benefit they receive is immeasurable and always strongly impactful for the leader, as well as his/her teams. After completing the assessments and reviewing the results, we then coach the client to maximize the value received.

Opposite Strengths logo

What Is Opposite Strengths?

Opposite Strengths is a psychological system that applies the universal concept behind Polarity Thinking to the psychology of the individual and organizational growth. When adopted by organizations, Opposite Strengths is a common language of communication and relationships used throughout the organization.

How Does It Benefit Me?

As more and more individual employees internalize and understand the concept behind Polarity Thinking in terms of three pairs of opposite psychological strengths (Thinking/Risking, Practical/Theoretical Thinking, and Dependent/Independent Risking), the organization increasingly benefits from the teamwork, collaboration, and engagement that result.

It creates an energized culture in which turnover rates plummet, productivity increases, and the organization’s bottom line becomes healthier. We administer the 360-degree assessment, then coach the leader to learn to flex their styles in order to best match the needs of the situation and person(s) they are communicating with.

What People Are Saying

Ken understands the business world. He learns the business from the bottom up and at the same time works with the CEO from the top down. He helps get employees and management on the same page, share the same values, mission and action plan to move the organization from Good to Great. With his help we were able to weather the 2009 financial storm without losing any employees or business. On the contrary we were able to grow and hire during the downturn in economy. He is my career and business coach.

Ken Larson's skillful method of weaving concrete solutions with meaningful anecdotes gave me the fire to apply his techniques to find new methods both personally and professionally. Ken walks his talk and he brought life, energy and determination to what potentially could have been a difficult virtual presentation to CAPL during COVID. I highly recommend Ken if you need a push, new momentum or to discover which direction to lead your team or yourself.
