"Every team is made up of different personality types which can, and sometimes do, lead to conflict and failure.

She’s a National Managing Director at Deloitte, where she helped develop the firm’s Business Chemistry system. She and her colleague Suzanne Johnson Vickberg coauthored an HBR article on the new science of team chemistry. It’s in the March-April 2017 issue."
