Simon Mac Rory recently wrote an opinion piece comparing Theresa May and Gareth Southgate’s team leadership in achieving their goals of Brexit and the World Cup respectively. These views were featured on Forbes Online.

Delivering improved team effectiveness across an organization does not have to be time-consuming. The Team Diagnostic Profiler (TDP) is a methodology and process that is easy to use, self-administering and can, therefore, deliver 10 to 20% improvement in team effectiveness when deployed in a corporate team strategy. This book is based on the TDP methodology and the years of research completed by the Simon Mac Rory.
