The Talent Selection Process

Turnover of key players is inevitable. Developing a succession plan before – not after losing a critical team member will reduce the successor selection process, gaps in productivity and leadership, and maintain your organization’s momentum.

The Art of Feedback

Feedback is a vital business communication skill. It is a two-way process of giving it efficiently and receiving it constructively. Giving and receiving feedback is key to engaging people and keeping them on track and serves as a robust tool for creating a healthy environment, boosting productivity and engagement, and achieving better results.

Keep Your Strategic Plan Alive

What worked for you a year ago may not work now and that can affect your objectives or goals. In our recent article, The Benefits of Strategic & Tactical Planning, we touched on what a strategic plan is and its benefits.

How To Take Your Team From Good To Great
