We would like to help you take your proven and equitable solution to the next level of scale and beyond.
WITHOUT wasting your time on strategies that don’t work
So that as many people as possible can benefit from your solution as quickly as possible
And do this all in six weeks.
Exponential Impact is all about adding zeros.
If your solution works in one community – let’s add a zero and bring it to 10.
If your solution is being implemented in 10 school districts – let’s add a zero and bring it to 100.
If your solution is being used in 100 health care settings – let’s add a zero and bring it to 1,000.
This course will help you navigate one unavoidable truth:
What got you here (an equitable and proven solution) won’t get you there (bringing that solution to scale).
Scaling isn’t about getting people to do what you want them to do.
It’s about orchestrating the loss of control of thousands of people you’ll never meet moving in the desired direction. We call that unleashing. We’re going to teach you how.

Over our six weeks together, we will guide you and your team through our five step proven process of:
Create a compelling aim.
Discern which methods for raising awareness, building will, and transferring skill are most suitable given your solution and your conditions.
Shift your operational norms and processes from ‘business as usual’ to fully unleashed for scaling.
Eliminate Data Malpractice in your organization and identifying the “just right” data for learning and scaling.
Craft an actionable 90 day plan.
Let’s Be Honest
This kind of work – this course, even – is not for the faint hearted.
Going to scale takes not only a solution worth scaling, but also clear, crisp, compelling, right-sized aims plus a strategy that is completely different from what worked at the program level. Going to scale is an entirely different ballgame that will make new demands on you as a leader and on your organization.
Business as usual won’t cut it.
Most large-scale change initiatives fail
Non-profit leaders are Burnt Out
We know the building blocks of successful large-scale initiatives in our bones.
Not only because we’ve seen what works, but we’ve both led successful efforts ourselves.
This is not an academic, theoretical, sit and get course.
This is applied and actionable, taught by two people (Becky & Joe) who’ve been there, done that, themselves.
As the Co-Founder of The Billions Institute, I train leaders from every nook and cranny of the social sector how to spread and scale their solutions to some of the world’s most vexing problems, while not losing themselves along the way. I show you how to stay on task, so you reach flow and are super competent – that’s your zone of genius.
I am a tuning fork for authenticity and aliveness. In my coaching I model authenticity, boldness and humility. I am certified as a Big Leap Coach by the Hendricks Institute. You can consider me your “woo woo can of whoop ass” because I will not tolerate you playing small.
While I am a middle-aged “Boo” to two kids and a cat named Sneakers, I’m also *that person* who says out loud what everyone else is thinking (until my wife kicks my shins underneath the table). So be prepared for honest feedback on your journey to stepping into your genius.
Joe McCannon is Executive in Residence at the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, and he leads Shared Nation, an online democracy initiative incubated by the Billions Institute.
He co-founded the Billions Institute with Becky Margiotta and was CEO from 2014-2017. Before that,. Before that, Joe was an appointee in the Obama Administration, as well as the Vice President and faculty on large-scale improvement at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), where he led the organization’s major domestic initiative to improve patient safety, the 100,000 Lives Campaign, and started its work in Africa.
He has supported large-scale transformation in several nations, including Canada, Denmark, England, Japan and South Africa, and consulted on the topic for a number of organizations, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Health Organization.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to have a solution ready to scale?
Yes, you must. It is part of the application process. This class is applied and actionable, not theoretical. You won’t get what you need out of this if you don’t have something you plan on scaling in the next 3 to 9 months. If you don’t have a solution worth scaling, please take this course immeaditly.
What if my unpredictable schedule means I miss coaching sessions?
As much as we’d love everyone to attend every coaching session to get the most out of their time with us and their cohort of students, this happens to most of our social change leaders who are busy making their dent in the universe. This is why we record all sessions and post all relevant resources discussed in these coaching sessions so you can catch up on what you missed. So no worries if you miss one or two. That said, you’ll get the most out of submitting your own questions and being on the “hot seat” and contributing to other people’s questions during our coaching sessions.
Is this course suitable for my team or best for individuals?
We discourage you taking this as an individual. It is better to take this course with your collegues and lead decision makers of your organization.

What if I need more coaching after the course?
Graduates of all our courses are invited to join our monthly Coaching Community for $99/month for as long as you’d like to join with no minimum months required.
