  • $0 in Customer Satisfaction According to research published in the Harvard Business Review every 1.3% increase in Customer Satisfaction scores equals a .5% increase in sales. Your sales increase was calculated by multiplying your current annual sales by the 1.46% increase that could be achieved with better leadership practices.
  • $0 in Employee Productivity A 2005 client impact study of 300 managers and 1,200 employees indicated a 5-12% increase in Employee Productivity following a Blanchard leadership initiative.
