"A key component of our organisation’s success is enabling our people to do great work in the communities we serve. With increasing regulation, and a deep desire to deliver even higher quality services and outcomes for our clients into the future, it is vital that our people function well as a team. We engaged Deb Johnston to help us to improve our team performance. She has used the TMS tool to help us understand our individual and team profiles. The process has truly supported us in identifying individual strengths and better ways of working to deliver great outcomes. If you are looking to shift your culture and team performance I highly recommend TMS and Deb Johnston."
