Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a limit of seats per business?

This course is for leadership and their team. We encourage you to bring up as much of your team to this program.  We’ve seen the most spectacular results when the entire team signed up, so if you want to add more members of the organization, we are in full support. Just let us know! There’s no limit of seats per business. 
If you have eight or more individuals who you want involved, consider a customized, private course designed specifically for your business.

Can I implement the concepts in High Stakes Negotiation by myself?

Victoria has put together a course for Growth Institute students that would otherwise require you to be an MBA  at Northwestern, or one of her clients.

The truth is, doing it on your own takes longer and is extremely challenging. You’ll be missing professional feedback, peer motivation, accountability and external perspective (we all know how it is hard sometimes to think “outside of the box”). Within this Master Course you’ll be getting not only highly-qualified guidance and support, but also an extremely dynamic and valuable network of entrepreneurs from all over the world.

Is Growth Institute a University? Can I count the course towards university credits?

We are an official Corporate and Digital Learning Institution but not technically a university. We are regulated and accredited by an AdvancED. This means that we are audited by strict guidelines that ensure quality of learning. The Master Course is an accredited certificate program. It is not the equivalent of a University’s Degree. The acceptance of Master Courses as university credit would fully depend on the institution granting your degree.


What can I do if I miss the live sessions with the coach or author of the class?

All our live sessions with authors and coaches are recorded and available on your learning platform. You will find them following the same steps mentioned in the reminder you receive a few days before the live classes.
- I’ll be traveling/ busy during a lot of the live sessions and I’m concerned that I’ll fall behind. - 
If you will be traveling, you can always dial in from wherever you are. You don’t have to be suited up in the office to participate in the live sessions. If you are 100% sure that you will miss the class, you can still submit your question/ challenge/ feedback and we’ll discuss it during the workshop or mastermind. As mentioned above, you’ll get the recordings of all the live sessions to keep for 12 months after the course end date. 

What if I'm not satisfied with the course? What is your refund policy?

Get access to the entire program , go through everything, use it in your business, and if at the end of going through the process for 30 days and 3 full live sessions, you decide it’s not for you, let us know and we'll give you a full refund. No Questions Asked. So, why not simply give it a try and see for yourself how powerful this program can be for you, your team, and your business. You have freedom to gain and nothing to lose.

Here’s why we give this kind of guarantee:

You know that to succeed in anything in life you have to commit. To get your business to the next level everyone on your team also needs to commit. This is your chance to make a commitment that will create reverberations and results for years to come.
