Apply the Make BIG Happen system to grow tall

“Do you know what your business success will look like in three years? Do you know what it will look like in a year? If you don’t know where you’re going, I promise you won’t.” Marc Moses

In his first book, MAKE BIG HAPPEN: how to live, work and give BIG, Marc Moses described the four core questions that formed the basis of CEO Coaching International, a executive coaching company that has helped more than 875 companies achieve extraordinary revenue and EBITDA growth. Now in the follow-up book MAKING BIG HAPPEN: apply the Make BIG Happen system to grow tall (Advantage Media; Hardcover; January 11, 2022), Marc Moses, Don Schiavone, Craig coleman, and Chris Larkins have translated the proven set of company best practices into a simple three-step process, supported by over 30 tools, to show leaders how to achieve extraordinary business growth.

The Make BIG Happen System is a structured planning and execution framework that creates directional clarity and operational results with a set of tools designed by layered experts. It allows businesses to grow quickly because it gives leaders a clear picture of where they want to go and a repeatable system with specific, measurable activities that will get them there.

The Make BIG Happen system is made up of three simple elements:

  1. Establish and maintain the Make BIG Happen rhythms to establish a structure
  2. Apply the Make BIG Happen questions to take action
  3. Leverage proven Make BIG Happen tools to accelerate your success

Born from the collective experiences of the authors in terms of management, turnaround and successful exit from complex companies, the Make BIG Happen system is enriched by the practice of crowdsourcing to have been applied to hundreds of companies around the world. It brings together all the prerequisites for success – a thoughtful strategy, meticulous planning, a system to keep scores, and an empowered team of the world’s best talent – operating in a culture of accountability that fosters consistent achievement and constant growth.

This book breaks down the system in a way that is easy to understand and implement and is interspersed with fascinating stories of dozens of companies that have experienced the tremendous success that the system allows.

GROW is available for pre-order and will be on sale wherever books are sold on January 11, 2022. Visit for more information about the book and to learn more about the executive coaching firm.
