The GVG methodology

Our Philosophy

At GVG, we believe that growth and results require awareness, choice and connection.


Organizations don’t change, people do. Progressive organizations realize this. They know success is based on a combination of personal and professional growth. They realize the future is about connection and collaboration, not cut-throat competition. Our competitors in today’s economy are often our partners and customers in other areas of our business, work or life. Progressive organizations know that social responsibility and profit can work together. They know attracting and retaining the best talent requires a workplace with an expansion based, can-do mindset in addition to accountability and results. And the “how” may vary at different points in time, but the “why” is always clear.


Leaders at the helm of progressive organizations are curious. They don’t always have the answers and continuously seek out those who do. These leaders are open to new ideas and learn from failures. They know that organizations cannot change and grow unless people do first. Leaders in progressive organizations are self-aware and connected, to the team, to the work, to the world and especially to themselves.


At GVG, we equip progressive organizations and individuals with solutions that support what they already know, growth takes conscious focus and effort. It’s not only about what we do (though that matters), it’s also about how we show up. There is an art and a science to choosing the outcome and getting there by shifting mindset and actions to align with our direction and intentions. And when we arrive, the end goal may change again.


So at GVG, we don’t just guide you through your change venture; we provide the map to empower you to make the trip yourself, each time the destination changes.

Our Approach



At GVG, we use methodologies and approaches around the ACC Growth Model™. 



This model combines intent, mindset and actions required to bring about long term effectiveness.  It drives fulfillment for the individual along with greater resilience and change adoption rates needed for the organization.  The methodology recognizes that only changing actions for the short term does not lead to long term sustainability.  Mindset and internal motivation are also components.  In addition, the overall intention around the new desired outcomes, whether they be personal or for the organization, serves as a beacon for staying on course.  Intention also serves a second purpose when behaviors and practices don’t quite match up to expectations. Coming back to understanding the underlying intention of ourselves and others may relieve communication misunderstanding and ultimately builds trust.

This practical approach is used for much of the work throughout GVG in addition to other best practices and cutting edge research.
