F4S measures each teammate’s preferred method and style of communication, including exact words that motivate and demotivate them.

Whether your team is smashing its goals or barely getting by—effective communication is a must.

Rather than guessing at what someone is trying to say or hoping you’re getting your message across, what if you could know, with research-backed precision, the best way to communicate with every member of your team?

With F4S, you can. Our work style assessment measures 48 distinct work traits that influence the way a person conveys and processes information, providing you with a detailed report on the best way to communicate with them to achieve harmony and peak performance. 

Using these unique insights, our personalized coaching programs help your team members improve their communication skills and emotional intelligence in just weeks.

Based on more than 20 years of research on industry top performers, F4S delivers an evidence-based way to identify workplace motivations and improve communication on your team.

Understand how each individual processes information so you can improve the way you collaborate with them.

"Coaching with Marlee helped me build deeper levels of self-esteem and how I value myself vis-a-vis the greater world. It also taught me courage to believe in my beliefs, and that it is not about success or failure, but that we give it a go, a try."
