Go Slow to Grow Fast

"Genius is the ability to crystallize complicated concepts into simple action. Go Slow to Grow Fast delivers this in spades."

Professor Philip T. Powell, Associate Dean of Academic Programs, Daniel C. Smith Faculty Fellow, Indiana University Kelley School of Business

In his acclaimed book, Go Slow to Grow Fast, Tilson CEO and Author Brent R. Tilson brings to life the classic challenge that all business leaders face as they push their businesses through the conflict of growth and business capability, often referred to as the S-curve life cycle.

Through a fable drawn from his work with hundreds of businesses over twenty-five years of experience, Brent creates a case study that will take you, along with the characters Frank and Susan, on a journey of self-discovery.

The practical tools, methodologies, and advice are thought provoking yet simple. Brent’s innovative use of a business’s “Lifeline,” combined with his “Quad 4” methodology, helps leaders gain an understanding of how their business is performing today, and creates a road map for the future.

What Our Clients Have To Say


As somewhat of an “accidental entrepreneur”, I knew what I was good at, I knew what I loved doing, I knew the value I created — but as we grew, I was less confident in how to support a small team in a small business who wanted (and deserved) big company benefits and HR support. I hired Tilson early on. They freed me to focus on my zone of genius (which has undoubtedly led to more dollars in my business) but they also made me a stronger leader and a less stressed, more competitive employer. As a small business owner you quickly learn the value of ROI. No question of the value and leverage they offer. This investment is a non-negotiable in our business.

Bari Baumgardner, Founder Sage Event Management


As a new organization whose mission is to lead the effort to develop solutions to the substance abuse crisis in our community, it is critical that we focus our time and energy where we can have the greatest impact. Partnering with Tilson allows us to move forward with confidence, knowing that our HR and payroll needs are in the hands of experts.

Cheryl Buffo, Program Manager ASAP - Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress


Tilson has been an invaluable partner in navigating through the uncertainty of COVID-19. Our Tilson representative has been easy to contact, quick to reply, and instrumental in all our responses related to the pandemic. Tilson has been essential in guiding us through establishing precautions, changing to work-from-home procedures, and discussing how to phase employees back into the office environment when able. Tilson has brought us comfort in knowing that we are making the correct decisions for our employees.
