Over the past fifteen years as a Head of Global Research, CIO and CEO of asset management companies I have found MPA profiling to be an essential tool for building and managing teams.
James combines insights into individuals' motivations and strengths/weaknesses with ongoing consulting support that helps team members better understand each other and work together more effectively to achieve results.
I can't imagine leading a team without MPA and James' support.
