    The Verdict: The Complete Self-Assessment package ticks a lot of checkboxes, especially for businesses testing the waters for decision making and performance enhancement and for companies that can not have a full-time professional on payroll to guide the initial implementation of their drive.

    Every high achiever has probably been criticized as a 'control freak' at some point. However, given the numerous daily distractions entrepreneurs encounter, if you want to do 'deep work' with broad-ranging impact, you have to control your time to make each day a masterpiece. Check Out The Art of Service's Self Assessments.
