Quoted in Forbes: how can managers balance pushing a team for results while keeping them engaged?

That’s best identified through data-driven assessments rather than intuitive guesses or polling for consensus. The Team Diagnostic™ Assessment is a powerful tool measuring current team conditions so the manager can identify the critical levers to improve team performance so the team can sustain real, meaningful, lasting results. ”
