Data-driven alignment for teams leading change

… because when you can see the gaps, you can deal with them.

People make sense of things on their own terms, based on past experiences, biases, and preferences.  The resulting interpretations are often different, which can lead to conflicting decisions and actions. This is misalignment and it undermines morale and performance.

But we don’t have to muddle through this anymore.  Mirror Mirror is a research-based approach that helps leaders and teams proactively manage team alignment.  Our diagnostics identify and measure the gaps, and our framework provides a structure for conversations to recognize and close the gaps. Tried and tested, Mirror Mirror helps teams get engaged and take ownership to deliver better together.

“Barriers to psychological safety can present on a number of levels in the workplace. Mirror Mirror is a refreshing way of getting people around some of those barriers, by allowing them to share their views anonymously, and address key issues without judgement or blame.”
