We focus on the S,M,A,R,T, goals set by the group/employer.
Each member interprets that differently according to Time constraints, Energy levels (before and during), Collaborative skills (synergy), Personal wants and needs. If we correlate the feedback to “pre defined objectives” the result is an overwhelmingly success.
