Our Mission

A while back, we noticed a curious thing.

We were hearing a lot of chat about ‘distributed leadership’ and the need to give people a greater voice in business decisions, but precious little action to back it up. From what we could see, most businesses were still using a command-and-control approach - missing a huge opportunity to leverage the expertise inside their business.

It got us thinking. We did some digging, and it turned out leaders weren’t just paying lip service to the idea of involving their teams - they just didn’t have the tools to do it.

CEO’s told us they wanted a way to measure what really matters according to solid, up-to-the-minute research. It would need to help them quickly identify new opportunities and threats. Finally, it had to come with full support, so that managers at all levels of the business would use it confidently, as often as needed - building a culture of continuous improvement. And so AskYourTeam was born.

We’ve developed a system that allows you to uncover the knowledge held at all levels of your business. It builds strong, accountable leaders and positive, productive teams. Most importantly, it drives measurable success.

Don't guess - ask.
