The Charge was a great way to kick-off our team’s project. We had a diverse group of people, many of whom had never worked with each other before and Chuck was able to help them set a common path to a well-defined goal. He modeled use of some of the techniques that we wanted to adopt, and helped the group see how valuable process can be in developing, nurturing, harvesting, and finally implementing good ideas. Equally important was Chuck’s ability to bring this collection of six individuals together into a well-functioning, cohesive team.
I would highly recommend The Charge as a first step for any group starting a long-range project with their organization.
