We’re continuing our series on Frameworks with a deep dive into how my guest and her business partner created their framework, from idea to testing with clients to writing a book.

My guest is Danya Shea, who is the co-founder of FervorWorks, a think tank that helps companies achieve exponential growth and scalability.

How do they help companies do this? With what they call Radical Customer Empathy.

What is Radical Customer Empathy? You’ll learn about it in this episode, as well as how Shea has successfully used their framework to attract different types of clients, from software start-ups to mid-tier consumer goods companies.

Shea and I talk about:

  • What Radical Customer Empathy is (you can use this in your business too)
  • Examples of 3 different stages of companies with which Shea has used her framework
  • How having a replicable, scalable, and predictable framework has been beneficial to the growth of her company, including in the sales process and for attracting speaking opportunities
  • How she came up with and tested the framework, including their Ideal Customer Journey

This episode is part of our series on Frameworks, episodes 145-148.
