Enabling teams to work better together

What does your team (really) need?

team needs

We are driven by five genetic needs:

survival, love and belonging, power, freedom, and fun.

– William Glasser MD (1925-2003)

According to Dr Glasser’s Choice Theory, these needs influence our thoughts, feelings, actions, and well-being.

When needs are met, so are performance goals.
