A picture really can be worth a thousand words.

We consider high-performing organizations and individuals to be those that embody effective, working relationships and data-driven, thoughtful decision-making. Furthermore, we know accurate, reliable, and valid data—when translated into credible communications and actions by key, respected individuals—lead to far superior results. To achieve the highest level of success, our research and experience confirm the need for organizations and individuals to realize what we call the “must haves:”
Measurement of progress and results
Use of data to inform decision-making
Sharing of information by and with the right people at the right time
Training and coaching for mid- to senior-level leaders
Humility and heart
Authenticity and accountability
Verification of data and translation of findings into action
Enabling of exemplary leadership
Securing stakeholder buy-in
“The only man who behaves sensibly is my tailor; he takes my measurements anew every time he sees me, while all the rest go on with their old measurements and expect me to fit them.”
