Complete our complimentary assessment to find out what blocks you from having a highly sustainable, profitable, and satisfying practice and life. The assessment takes 10-15 minutes.


 

Let's Get Started!

The Sustainable Growth Assessment consists of 90 statements, 10 for each of the nine disciplines. Mark each statement as either true or false for you. Be rigorous; be a hard grader. If a statement is sometimes or usually true, do not check the circle unless the statement is true for you virtually all the time.

The total score at the end of assessment is meant to give you a snapshot of the degree to which your growth today is sustainable. The score by discipline is provided to help you focus your efforts on the disciplines that require more attention. The assessment results can be printed and/or e-mailed to you.
