The leadership fable in JUMP! is a composite of many of JUMP!-related projects and clients—designed to show the model “in action.” Real clients get testy about sharing the details of their situations, so the fable is a made-up story, but one steeped in real-life wisdom. The process model in JUMP! is a high-level, yet comprehensive depiction of the actual consulting practices and tools used in the JUMP! Innovative Change Model™.

The Fable? Right Brainers Love It.

The process model? Left-brain heaven.

Together? A powerful combination.
