What is a Growth Catalyst?

Catalyst: an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action.

A Growth Catalyst comes alongside CEOs and Owners embodying the Acumen values taking leaders on a Bold, Fun, Challenging, Adventurous, Unconventional, and Catalytic journey. Your past experience sitting in the seat of owning or leading a company has given you battle scars and pathways to help others. You are the transformational agent that helps a team of leaders drive growth in people, performance, profit, and person. While independent, Growth Catalysts work together as a team of teams in your city to sharpen, challenge, and inspire others.

The Growth Catalyst Experience

Our aim is to provide our Growth Catalysts with an experience that Challenges, Sharpens, and Inspires in a unique way as they approach engaging with their world. It’s a shared vision as we move from success to significance.

The monthly rhythm of Acumen’s platform will help you build a calendar around predictable activities that give you strong connection while allowing you to create time and space for other business, activities, and fun.

The repetition of Council, Debriefs, and Advance allow a steady flow of learning, spaced out in a natural way that allows for a cadence of connection and income. The recurring revenue model of Acumen allows you to plan and not worry about the cycle of finding business.


The rhythm and repetition helps develop deep relationships with your clients - deeper than we’ve ever had doing business running a company. Doing life shoulder to shoulder with high impact individuals will enrich your life more than you know.​


Acumen affords those who are qualified to re-engage with business owners, entrepreneurs and CEO’s without having to carry the full weight of biz ownership. You’ll have the opportunity to help others thrive, create value and engage in economic exchange.

I always come back with a list of things to share with my leadership team and implement. My council has become a huge factor in my life in so many ways. It’s a key thing I have on my schedule. How could I miss it?

Acumen was an expense line we knew we couldn’t do without. The return on investment is multiple from a financial standpoint, but even more importantly, the return on impact personally has been exponential.
