Challenge your assumptions and explore a different way forward

Some of the things you believe are non-negotiable in your business might not be based on any supporting evidence. Maybe you use annual appraisals for performance management.


Is there any evidence to show they increase engagement or productivity? Perhaps you also feel you always need to pay salespeople commission?

You don’t!

Just because it’s what other businesses do, doesn’t make it right for you. 

This book will help you challenge your assumptions and demystify some of the barriers to business growth.
