Want to know how to get things done three to eight times faster and not lose the engagement of your people? Join Allen Fahden and I in The People Catalysts Podcast’s part one of getting things done.

To get three to eight times more effective, you need to find a Mover. This is a person who uses the boundaries between people of different strengths to move the team ahead. If you don’t have this person, nothing of value gets done.

Find a Mover, use the WHO-DO Method, and change becomes your ally. Listen and learn in a way that’s fun and fascinating.


Anyone who knows Karla Nelson describes her as an experience. She is as close as a human being can ever be to a human doing. It’s simple. She finds an idea that’s different and valuable, and then she builds it with a team. Swiftly, and relentlessly. She does this by a rare process of how to fit people together, that goes far beyond just connecting them. Karla has built several businesses since her early twenties and learned that in business and in life, “Relationships Are Everything.” And now she has put it all in a form that’s easy to learn and use: The People Catalysts.

When the world zigs, Allen Fahden zags. His first book introduced the unifying theory of creativity. Using his own method he created the one-book bookstore, and got media exposure in front of 50 million people without doing anything. Next, he launched the first strength-to-strength work process that gets three to eight times more done in less time. He beat Gallup and the Strengths Finder by five years. One company used his method to take their division from $20 million to $60 million in two years, while the rest of the company was flat. His clients include Jeff Bezos of Amazon, and dozens more.

Between them and their team, Karla and Allen have used the WHO-DO Method with 25 of the Fortune 100 and dozens of mid market companies and startups. Typically, The WHO-DO Method cuts 50-80% off cycle time and produce better results with happier people. The Who-Do Method’s client list includes Target, Best Buy, Disney, Comcast, 3M, Amazon, General Mills, HP, Coca-Cola, Deloitte, Cargill, Chase, US Bank, State Farm Insurance, IBM and many other corporate market leaders.
