The primary focus of our research is leadership effectiveness. This informs how we approach our work. We have conducted research in a variety of companies. We continue this work to refine our understanding of effective leadership behaviors and apply our learning to our client engagements. See below for a description of past and current studies.

T4 Performance Results
Engaged teams are high performing. It’s true for teams of top performing cardiac surgeons and financial analysts as well as virtually any team you’d care to name. [1] In this recently published study on our unique performance improvement process, 5 teams identified $2 million in annual operational performance improvements.[2]

STEM Leadership Results
Effectiveness of leaders in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) disciplines is critical due to the uniquely powerful impact STEM organizations have on the nation and the world. While only 5% of the people employed in the US are in STEM jobs they are responsible for 50% of our sustained economic expansion. Published in 2014, our research breaks new ground by identifying powerful positive correlations between specific leader behaviors and effective decision making on the part of direct reports.[3]
