We’ve been working with our clients around the globe to implement a variety of strategies to drive motivation and execution, and help teams perform at the highest levels through our Extreme Productivity System.
For our Extreme Productivity research, we studied 2,377 business professionals to find out which work habits and hacks, when applied in different combinations, drive not only productivity, but also top performance versus peers, job satisfaction, and happiness. Through this global study of sellers and non-sellers alike, we've validated and honed the Extreme Productivity System and Extreme Productivity Assessment tool.
