“I was really amazed that this would work in any area... This is the most interactive,
beneficial seminar... Otherwise, I would walk out of here and say that was nice
but I wouldn’t have the same concept on how to do it.”
—Natalie Lebow, 30-year
educator. From the video: “The Pull Thinking Experience”
Needs Pull Thinking?
Because it helps develop processes by focusing
on fundamental issues—like how people think, how
they communicate and how they take action—Pull Thinking® can
be applied to any number of situations to improve the overall
performance and effectiveness of a workforce.
In fact, even if you’re already using another kind of
performance enhancement program (such as Team Development,
Six Sigma, Lean, ISO Certification or Balanced Scorecard),
Pull Thinking can be applied to it to help increase that program’s
effectiveness and speed to ROI.
