Does your team need a tune-up?

Here are some direct quotes from members of senior management teams in organizations ranging from leading corporations to national nonprofits:

  • Team members surface and deal skillfully with disagreements and conflicts.
  • Team members easily give each other direct and helpful feedback about how to improve their leadership.
