Reviews

'This loose-leaf manual is a well thought out and easy-to-use collection of metrics…an effective resource for very different audiences-from team leaders to mangement coaches.' Training and Coaching 'This is one resource that must be in the armoury of every team and leadership trainer…As a qualified trainer I found this to be very useful, very well-written, extremely practical and inspirational. …this must be one of the investments of the year for anyone interested in team development, assessment and performance.' Personnel Today 'It undoubtedly will prove an invaluable, "want to have" resource for consultants, trainers, facilitator's, team leaders and anyone engaged in assessing team effectiveness'. George Kearns, HRD IRELAND
