The Growth Paradox and Employee Satisfaction

As the global economy picks up speed, many companies are coming up against an unexpected problem: their growth strategies are making them less – rather than more - profitable.

Tackling Difficult Issues with Science

We live in a society where speaking your mind or facing difficult issues head-on is often looked at with derision. In team settings, most frustrations are glossed over and people are often told to ‘let things slide’. While rejecting drama and politics can be a productive approach, what happens when a major issue arises? Most companies are not prepared to deal with difficulties, and this often results in mounting tension and persistent dilemmas that obstruct workflow. However, what if you could use science and technology to help solve these important issues in real-time?

There is an age-old battle between what we think needs to be done and how we think we should do it.

Do they retain the original goal when they have finished?
