Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
Zero. For now anyway. We reserve the right to charge in future if the price of food, clothing, and children's diapers goes up substantially in our corner of the world (Metro Washington, DC, USA).
Certainly. You can simply email or share the link to this page using the social sharing buttons provided.
Yes, we will. Here's how it works.
After you have taken the quiz you will be shown the results on your screen. A copy of these results will also be sent to your email address. That email will also include a link to the questionnaire so that you can take it again in the future. It will also be useful if you started the survey but were not able to complete it.
After that first email, you will receive our Forever Workshop by Email which are weekly tips and strategies on how to build your own management theory so that you can build a self-perpetuating, self-sustaining, high-performing work-team.
At any point in time, you can remove yourself from the mail list by clicking on the "Unsubscribe" link in the email.
We won't ask you about your favorite Disney prince or princess. Promise. Nor would we tell on you or judge you for who you are.
We will, however, follow up with tips, tricks and strategies on how to build their own business philosophies and management theories so that you can build a self-perpetuating, self-sustaining, long-lasting business success, but only if you want. (You can opt-out from the follow-up series of strategies and tips at any time. )
Nothing wrong with those silly personality quizzes, by the way. I took a Harry Potter quiz once and I came out as Ravenclaw. Who would have thought? My daughters think I should be Slytherin. Truth.
Wherever you come out, let me assure you, the answers will be relieving and refreshing.
Have you ever gone to a doctor with some pain in the neck? Once you knew what was going on, you most likely felt a bit better. Knowing the truth about a situation makes you feel better because it relieves the emotional tug-of-war we subject ourselves to when something is not going right in a situation.
Also, you will have many ideas about what changes to make in your team, if any, to make it stronger, longer-lasting, and more engaging for everyone involved with it. This will give you a sense of power and control over your professional life and make you feel a bit better.
The information we collect help us get to know you better so that we can continue to bring you tools, resources, and learning experiences to make building and managing your business more effective.
The results of this survey are stored on a secure server where we can access them later if you want us to do deeper analysis. We may also use this data if we create team reports or more detailed reports on your business - but only if you ask us to.
Not really. Actually, we may be, but I feel safer to say "no" for now.
Let me explain.
We have done everything possible to make sure that we are in compliance with most requirements of GDPR. But so much is left to interpretation - "gray areas," as they say - that we may not be fully in compliant yet in the strictest sense of the law.
According to some very strict interpretations of the GDPR law, we should not even be asking for emails and giving away our content for free to everyone. This would be like handing out candy in the streets for free forever. We feel that this is not be in the best interest of our business, as we do have bills to pay. We share our work in exchange for getting to know the folks who might benefit from what we do a bit better and continuing a dialogue with them - with their permission.
If you happen to live in the parts of the world where GDPR is applicable and the strictest compliance is important to you, you may want to not take this quiz.
Having said that, we are trying to understand the full spirit, intent, and the letter of the law as it plays out. We will continually update this page as we understand GDPR better.
There is a simple way to find out if you will get value in taking this quiz. Go through the first 3 to 5 clicks and abandon it if you are not compelled to keep going. (Kinda like watching the first 5 minutes of a new Netflix show to see if you would get hooked.)
You may find that you are learning something new even as you take this quiz. We have designed the quiz so that even just the act of taking it will stir up some inspiration and ideas.
Team Performance Index is a measure of the current performance of a work-team against its ideal capacity to perform and produce, presented as a quotient or a percentage. If you're into formulas, it can be written as: (How well a team is currently functioning)/(How well it can ideally be functioning).
Awayre Quotient (AQ) is our take on the idea of traditional Team Performance Index. With Awayre Quotient, we cast a wider and deeper net in evaluating team performance than most other similar tools.
We call out version Team Performance Index AQ.
There is a measure of subjectivity to this index, which can be minimized by having more and more people go through the questionnaire and aggregating (and sometime analyzing) the results.
Team Performance AQ is meant to be taken primarily by the team leaders of a team being evaluated. It can also be taken by the individual players in the team as well as others who interact or work with that team.
The higher the number of people who take the questionnaire, the more objective the aggregate results are. The more diversity there is in the perspective of the people taking the assessment, the more meaningful the results are.
If you can suspect or identify with one or more of the following, you may benefit from taking Team Performance Index AQ:
Let me assure you: You won't and you can't fail! If you lead a team, part of a team, or interact with one, you already know what you need to know to take this quiz.
The quiz is a series of multiple choice types of questions that require you to know no more than what you already know. In fact, we encourage you to be exactly who you are when you take the quiz. It's your unique perspective that's important.

Our learning experiences are designed to work with your psyche effortlessly, becoming a part of your thinking, feeling and behaviors with ease. It is slow, incremental release of information which is made practical at the point of practical application.
We encourage you to take very small dozes of learning with us and the lessons will become a part of your life in very small and incremental ways, and gradually gather larger and larger impact in your team's results.
