A Better Workforce

We research, refine, practice, and teach leadership and hiring best practices.
Total Performance Leadership (TPL) is the result of Allen Austin’s commitment to making this world a better place. With 90% of the world’s workforce disengaged and a broken executive hiring process that results in almost 50% failure, we believe our work is desperately needed. There is, without question, the opportunity for us to help create a more productive and fulfilled global workforce. We have the ability, indeed the responsibility, to help break this cycle.
