Created The Personal Disruption and The S Curve of Learning frameworks

To help leaders develop high-growth individuals and organizations, Whitney created and developed two frameworks: Personal Disruption and the S Curve of Learning.

The Personal Disruption Framework is a 7-point actionable tool that helps you reassert control in the present and accelerate your growth into the future.

The S Curve of Learning Framework illustrates the development of competence in a new domain of expertise which is the very essence of professional learning.

Her books explore strategies on Team Growth & High Performance


Build an A-Team: Play to Their Strengths and Lead Them Up the Learning Curve

In her book, Whitney Johnson argues that better morale and higher performance happen through learning.

Employees need continuous learning and fresh challenges to stay motivated.

In Build an A-Team, she shares her insights on how to build an engaging team by:

  • Identifying what your employees already know and what they need to learn;
  • Designing their jobs to maximize engagement and learning;
  • Applying a seven-step process for leading each person up their learning curve.

We all want opportunities to learn, experiment, and grow in our jobs. When our bosses work with us to help us leap to new challenges, the result is a team that knows how to thrive, no matter what the future holds.

Disrupt Yourself™: Master Relentless Change and Speed Up Your Learning Curve

Disrupt Yourself helps high-growth individuals–and those trying to attain this status–learn the tools and frameworks necessary to make changes that matter.

This book helps you understand how these frameworks of disruptive innovation can apply to your particular path, whether you are:

  • A self-starter ready to make a disruptive pivot in your business;
  • A high-potential individual charting your career trajectory;
  • A manager looking to instil innovative thinking within your team;
  • A leader facing industry changes that make for an uncertain future.

Whitney Johnson makes the compelling case that managing the S-curve waves of learning and mastery is a requisite skill for the future.

If you want to be successful in unexpected ways and achieve your wildest goals, follow your own disruptive path.

Dare to innovate. Do something astonishing. Disrupt yourself.

Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream

In this inspiring book, Johnson directs her attention to teaching women, in particular, a three-step model for personal advancement and happiness.

She first encourages us to DARE to boldly step out, to consider disrupting life as we know it.

Then she teaches us how to DREAM, to give life to the many possibilities available, whether to start a business, run a marathon, or travel the world.

Finally, Whitney’s model brings out the businesswoman in her; she teaches us to DO, to execute our dreams.

Rich with real stories of women who have dared to dream, DARE, DREAM, DO offers a practical framework to realize one’s true potential.

Smart Growth: How to Grow Your People to Grow Your Company – launched in 2022


Whitney Johnson’s newest book is Smart Growth: How to Grow Your People to Grow Your Company in which she dives more deeply than ever into the S Curve of Learning.

The book is a compact and complete guide on how organizations can grow their employees. According to the author, the growth and learning journey comes in three phases: the Launch Point, the Sweet Spot, and Mastery. Whitney Johnson gives compelling examples of successful people illustrating when and why growth is slow, how to keep going, what to do when growth and learning are almost too fast to keep up with, and how to leap from one growth journey to another.
