Program Overview:

  • Does it seem like you give the same performance feedback to individuals year after year with no improvement?
  • Are your employees unable to translate performance feedback into action?
  • Are your employees stuck in career-limiting habits that prevent them from performing at their full potential?
  • Do you have wellness initiatives that need more consistent measurement or support?
