  • Training

    "Most people assume that great bus drivers (read: business leaders) immediately start the journey by announcing to the people on the bus where they're going—by setting a new direction or by articulating a fresh corporate vision. In fact, leaders of companies that go from good to great start not with “where” but with “who.” They start by getting the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats. And they stick with that discipline— first the people, then the direction—no matter how dire the circumstances." ~Jim Collins - Good To Great

We at Acumen are keen to work with you to ensure that your employees (the people on your bus) are at their best and are able to perform in a way to guarantee optimal results.

It is delivered both as a stand alone service and as an ongoing activity during consulting engagement implementation.
