Evaluate and Reward Team Members Based On Individual Performance

“Leaders are often taught that employees should be reviewed and rewarded based on their individual performances. I think this misses the mark in two ways.

If you have the right core values, you’ll keep the right people on the bus, driving success.” – Dave Todaro
