Voice of the Client

Despite people having the right technical skills, we weren't seeing the kind of performance that we wanted to see; the real issue was self awareness.
The more you know about yourself, the better you will perform as a human being, individually, as a part of the team and a part of the organization.

And it's easy to say we need to become more self-aware, but there's reasons for people not doing that. It's really not about the instrument, is about an approach, about the way of life.

That's how we got to the notion that The Human Element approach is what we needed moving forward.
