Since I joined LOGiQ3 a couple of months ago, I have been diving head first into building my knowledge of our business, our processes, our people and, of course, our customers. While I have been in the insurance industry my entire career, this is the first time I have been part of a professional services firm supporting the industry.

Recently I shared a number of early observations with our internal team—both positive and critical. I believe we have a lot going for us at LOGiQ3, such as:

Managing with Metrics:

A popular definition of a leader is someone who produces superior results through the work of others. Two of the greatest challenges a leader faces are knowing how to build a high-performance team to achieve superior results and then instituting the mechanisms necessary to actually create that team.

In this article, however, I want to focus on Managing with Metrics as a key driver of creating a high-performance team. And this concept applies equally to the team as a whole, as well as its individual members.
