Everyone evaluates something, intentionally or unintentionally. Here is my encouragement to you. Figure out what is most important (your vision), and then develop feedback and discernment tools that create friction around the vision. By creating friction around the vision it will bring clarity and accountability that moves the vision forward. You can create vision friction in a compelling and inspiring manner, or you can create a dreaded culture on your team/organization. Make sure you know what you are doing when you seek to bring alignment and vision friction to your team/organization. If implemented well, self and team reflection tools can be great resources in creating a thriving team!
If we could, we would make all these tools free. More than half are free to download. In order to keep creating helpful resources we have to cover some of the costs. Our heart is to resource you. Each of the tools that have cost are very valuable because of the content they offer or the editability, maximizing their usefulness.
